jane.dough Posted August 10, 2008 Share Posted August 10, 2008 ...I AM! She really irritates me! My boss is such a tooth faced liar! Everything that I do--she can do better. Everything that I say--somehow has something to do with her. EVERY single MAN that you could possibly think of somehow has a "secret crush" on her. Oh, and the WHOLE world is out to get her! Do you see why I can't stand her? Yes, I am acting childish right now, but I have to get it out. If this gets long, I'm sorry, but I have to talk about it somewhere. I have been working for my bf's family member for almost two years. In those two years, I have lost so much confidence and have gained A LOT of weight! No, I'm not blaming her, but dealing with someone like her will run you CRAZY! There has been some issues going on here at work. She makes a considerable amount of money each year, and doesn't even come in half of the time. She's been playing this organization and basically stealing money! It took me awhile to notice what she was doing, but I finally found out. In In the beginning, she would call the office and tell me to take phone calls, because she had an appointment. Then, it turned into three appointments in a week. When she does decide to come in, her work days don't start until around noonish. She might come in @ about 10:30 am, but that's once in a blue moon. Since she has me in on her little "scams", she'll call the office now and say "I'm getting my hair done, I won't be in today". Mind you this lady brings in a salary. So, she's pretty much getting paid to get her hair done, which she feels she's "entitled" too, because everyone owes HER something. When I found out, she started telling me to leave early, but keep my hours. She would add more hours to my time card, which I didn't complain, because I'm a college student already making close to nothing. She would have me run little errands for her, which would require like me being out for over 3-4 hours at a time, but STILL get paid for doing these things for her. I felt bad, because I WAS stealing too, but I didn't say NO because I wouldn't know how she would take it? Would she fire me? Give me less hours? What? Well, it started to get worse. I started taking advantage of the situation. I would get paid for two, three days in advance and not show up and NOT make my hours up. I would come in late, but write down that I got there bright and early, because I figured she wouldn't know and if she did, she wouldn't care. I was starting to be like her. I figured if she could get away with it and make MUCH more money than ME, then I could definitely get way with this. It lasted for a while, but not TOO long. She started noticing what I was doing, but didn't say anything. (I could tell that she wanted too). I kept telling her that I was sorry, it won't happen again, and turn around and do it. And yes, she was STILL doing what she was doing. (not coming in, calling off, coming in late, but still getting her BIG salary.) I guess finally she's going to say something. This all happened on Friday, mind you. I got paid on Thursday--a day early. I was supposed to come in on Friday--from 9-5pm, but never showed up. She usually NEVER comes in on Friday, but was coming in this past Friday, because I told her I would help her do something. Yes, we were going to leave work @ 3pm, to go do something. Mind you--we would still be on the clock. I agreed to help her Thursday, even though I wanted to tell her NO! So, Friday, I didn't show up until 3pm. I called her and told her I was downstairs--waiting for her. She said, you didn't call, I didn't know where you were, so I canceled. I asked her why and she just said to come up here and "do my work"... HOW dare her be mad at me? I was out all day--preparing myself to help her and she canceled? Yeah, I could've called her, but I didn't! I figured she would be there until around that time anyway. So, anyway, I ended up not going into work. Instead, I went home and moped for a little bit. What will I do without a job? Is she going to fire me? Was she really that mad? She does worse things! So, I emailed her and told her I would go in on Sunday and clean the office and finish somethings around the office, to make up for my hours on Friday. I guess she agreed, because another one of my bf's family members asked if I went to work today. My question is this? When I see her tomorrow? What should I do? What should I say? I really want to tell her to go screw herself and quit, but I need my job. If I do get to keep my job. I WILL never take advantage of this. I know that there are serious consequences to what I did and what she does and will probably continue to do, until they find out. It's not right, truly it's not. I've even worried about my safety working here, because what if she does get found out and they come after me too because I knew all along what she was doing? Getting paid for not working, is stealing and it's wrong! I feel like a scummy person right now. I wish I would've never gotten involved in this whole mess. Link to comment
