My Dance With Hr
so, i learned a hard lesson the past couple weeks. i was at work a few weeks ago and my supervisor said that he had been told to clean up his language. (he swears a lot). so i responded by saying that i thought we could all stand to work on cleaning up our language. i was naive enougn to think that we could all help eachother out and make things better as a group. He then made a statement saying, very vaguely, that he certainly had a lot of dirt on me. i am completely clueless as to what he meant. to my knowledge, i have done nothing wrong. i am a good worker. i show up. i do my job. i roll with it. when he said this to me, it felt like a threat. he has never liked me. i have never liked him-- mainly b/c, without going into detail, i've found that he is a two-faced liar.
i had a witness when he made that statement, so i reported it to HR. instead of helping me, they turned it around on me and started trying to find things that were wrong with me. So he continues to bully me and there is nothing that i can do about it. it's frustrating b/c i just don't get it. i've never done anything to him. why is he such a jerk and why is he doing this? i hope that he gets his desserts at some point. i hope that i can find a new job in this economy-- one where they don't make you sign away your rights and then don't treat you fairly when you have a legitimate concern. i ask you, what is wrong with people?
as i'm writing this, i realize that i am a bitter b***** about my workplace, but in life, i'm still myart. i don't want this workplace poison to taint me... to change my optimism, my idealism-- my faith and hope of the nature of people. it's all so small anyway. eventually i will move on and this too will be merely a faded memory.
