On Tuesday, the other new person at work sorta went off on the boss. She showed up for work on Wednesday, and was asked to leave. Interesting conversation. At any rate, I have worked out, and she didn’t. I will be taking on more duties at work on Monday — tomorrow is a day we are at wit’s end passing out paychecks to our clients.
I have just taken a bunch of written (some poorly) procedures and turned them into website pages, including rewriting the index page. I have not uploaded them to the website yet, and probably won’t until my boss gets to go over them with me, probably the end of next week. But I did a great job (am still proofreading a few of them to make sure I caught everything), and besides, where else can you get an HTML programmer for $7.25 per hour? Besides which, I do all the filing, man the front desk, do backup security, and now will be adding some new things next week (including a return to answering the phones). There are only three of us, and the boss tends to work 80 hour weeks (and doesn’t set her own salary, and hasn’t had a raise for 6 years), the other co-worker is a friend of mine through the Knit & Crochet Meetups and is definitely working more hours than she is supposed to be. I’d do that, too, but if I did I’d lose my SSDI check and there is no way I can replace it through work at this job.
OK, that’s about it I guess. Lots of successes, a few ways to look at it as a downside but mostly I refuse to.
BTW, my honey and I have been OK for a while… still tend to hit those tender triggers, but we’re learning.
