The Love Bug
I have a particular member of staff who is really starting to hack me off. His attitude stinks and he is lazy. He dropped his passcard into the cup bin today, and then blankly refused to retrieve it. I ended up getting it for him, and I didn't even get a word of thanks. It's getting to the point now where I'm going to get really annoyed with him and sack him.
Have you ever been in a company where you feel that everything goes on around you, but you never seem to know about it? For example, three people left the company this week. The most in advance that I knew about them was 3 days. 3 days! Some of my people had known for a couple of weeks. This evening, nearly everyone is going to the pub after work (so I found out at about 5pm). When I pointed out that no-one had told me about the pub, suddenly 3 people started becoming friendly and inviting me down the pub. Call me unreasonable, but that really gets to me.
So here I am, feeling unpopular at work, with one of my staff bitching down my bloody neck.
What the hell am I supposed to do?
I posted yesterday that I wasn't sure whether I should be happy or not that my part of my department is transferring across... well now I've decided. I can't wait until I move to the Reading office.
At least people there don't have crappy attitudes.
