I nearly quit my job today.
I got REALLY fed up with my boss taking me for granted. I was so close to just telling him to stick it.
I really surprised myself actually.
I’m really not that kind of person at all but for some reason today he really got to me Dammit!
Basically, the first week of every month we sort out the accounts for the previous month. It takes five days (at best). We’re given four and a half.
So this week, not only have we lost a day due to the Bank Holiday but also when I turn up to work Tuesday morning my boss doesn’t even give me a chance to tackle my monthlies.
He’s like: “James, I’ve got two jobs that need doing. One to be done for tonight and one for tomorrow…”
Needless to say, I’m STILL working on these two jobs and I’m yet to even start my monthlies! I mean.. what’s that about?!
And the most annoying thing is – he expects me/us (the other folk in the office) to work earlier/later to get it done.
He doesnt expect..
He takes it for granted that that is what we will do.
And THAT hacks me off…
So yeah – I didnt quit. But I’m not enjoying work at the moment…
Think I might start looking around again.. or failing that – what’s to stop me staying in Thailand?
I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t thought about it…
