dqueen Posted July 28, 2008 Share Posted July 28, 2008 I am feeling so hurt right now I cannot even find the words to explain my thoughts. Just a while ago I received a call from my manager saying that she has received a long list of complaints about me regarding my work over the weekend. For those who don't know, I work at a shelter for abused and homeless women and their children. I know that I do my job to the best of my ability and make sure their needs are met. My passion has always been to help the needy and I have been doing humanitarian work since my early teen years so this is something I've been doing for a long time. Well the manager told me this morning what the complaints were and I know they were nothing but false allegations to defame my character. They have made up stories and fabricated lies to the extent that I cannot even imagine. The funny thing is that these women were so nice to me on the weekend...they never once complained or showed any attitude towards me that made me think they had any hostility towards me whatsoever. If these woman have issues with me they should come and tell me to my face, not stab me in the back. We receive a lot of donations on Sundays and I gave a good chunk of it away to these women...the very same women who made the false complaints! These donations included a TV, VCR, dishes, children's books, clothing, small kitchen appliances and other odds and ends. It angers me I gave them all these things only to be treated like scum in the end. Anyway, the manager has asked me to write a letter stating my side of the story and explaining that these are false allegations being made against me. Mind you, the manager has never been very good to me in the past so I have a hard time believing that ANYONE is going to hear my pleas. This has happened many times over the years where the women have tried to frame me and I've come to learn that they are experts in fabricating lies however, it never got this serious until today. I'm feeling so low right now. It hurts when the people I'm trying to help do this to me. I wonder if my work is ever appreciated...if what I do is ever good enough for them. I do not deserve to be treated like this and I'm beginning to think twice about continuing this line of work. I'm slowly losing my sympathy for the homeless and it makes me sick that I'm even thinking like this. After all these years I've been working to serve humanity, I realized today that they were spent serving people who never deserved my help. Link to comment
