My Big Boss

Question of the Day: What do you need to vent about?

I used to vent about almost everything and anything  when I was younger.  I used to complain a lot.  But, as I grew older, I matured a lot too.

I don’t usually vent much now.  I try to endure as much as I can before I complain.  But, I am just a human being and my cup is not bottomless.

These days the one thing I regularly complain about to my family and friends is my big boss.  I know that I am not meeting his expectations but, damn, he has really high expectations!  And, whenever I feel like I have achieved something and report to him, he will just have more follow-up questions.  He is never satisfied.

The worse thing is he did not approve my regularization and is keeping me on a probationary status (which I think is illegal) and he told me 2 months after I was supposedly to have been regularized.

I know he has grounds for not signing my papers.  After all, I am not performing as he expected me to perform but they should have informed me before my 6th month.  What they are doing is illegal and unfair to me.

Sad part is, they won’t give me the COE I need to apply to MPNP.  I submitted my request Oct. 22nd and up to now the HR personnel is still giving me excuses.

Question of the Day: What do you always avoid?

This one’s easy for me: confrontations.

I don’t like confrontations.  I never did and, I think, I never will.  So, I try my damndest to avoid it in any shape, size, and form.

However, sometimes, you have no choice but to do so to survive.

Lately, though, there is one more thing I want to avoid but I can’t.  And that is reporting to the my company’s general manager.  For some odd reason, I can’t seem to give him any form of good news.  When I have something to report, it is always lacking in his eyes.  No matter how hard I try, I end up feeling like an idiot for not being able to come up with what he thinks I should have come up with.  It is so exhausting to work for someone who is like him.

Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful for my job.  I am grateful for a lot of things but sometimes it is not healthy to always feel this down and this inadequate.  I think it’s time for me to find another job. 😦
