Work Rant

So I called old boss today to let her know what is going on. She has decided to go on retirement at work mode. She is going on fulltime wah. Honestly, I don't blame her one bit. She tells me today that our new boss, who doesn't know anything. Who's ass I saved 30 September from a huge huge screwup. Who just bows down to everything is now Employee of the Month. WTF. WTF WTF WTF WTF WTF. Are you kidding me? You have to be freaking kidding me. How the hell can someone who is in TRAINING get employee of the month? Please explain this to me. Oh wait, it's the good old boy network.

I can't wait to see what he got it for. My guess is it is for a huge project that we did for another agency. But wait let's see. I AM THE ONE THAT WROTE THE MASTER CONTRACT, SET THEM UP, AND DID ALL THE NOTICES AND ANSWERED ALL OF THE QUESTIONS. Yeah me. I set up the master contract for them to ALL COPY FROM. All they had to do was copy the format and the clauses that I RESEARCHED (old boss researched clauses too). It was MY BUTT THAT STAYED LATE ON FRIDAY NIGHTS TO ENSURE THAT THE WORK GOT OUT AND CORRECTED HIS MISTAKES. His ass sat at home on the weekends.

Yeah me. I saved his ass on the last day of the fiscal year. See I couldn't figure out why in the world the company was not in our financial system. I mean if he had obligated the contract and I awarded mine after his (had to delay mine a bit due to an issue with the pm giving me the wrong electronic file). His should have been there. It really bothered me. So I went and started poking around. I discovered that he never obligated the contract (this wasn't the first one that this had happened on). I toyed with the idea of not saying anything. Not say anything and we just lost over a million dollars and would have made him look really bad. Say something and he can obligate it in time and the money was safe. Yeah an over a million dollar mistake. So I said something. I would hope that if I made a mistake, someone would have fixed it for me. So I told him and he got it obligated in the nick of time. He never even wondered why it wasn't there but I did. My old boss agreed with this. Everyone in the office is pissed. Royally pissed. The purchasing agent is pissed because she feels she did so much. Ummm, not unless you count her many coffee breaks. The other specialist is pissed because she knows I did the work behind the scenes for these contracts and the accolades are going to the wrong person. I am pissed because I have been there for 8 years. I have cleaned up that crap that people have done, issued things emergently, found problems and fixed them without anyone telling me too, and all at a lesser pay grade. No one in 8 years has ever put me up for employee of the month. Yeah, I am pissed.

I said you know what. A) I am glad that I won't be there to see it tomorrow. B) I would have walked out of the ceremony C) I am done. It seems that no matter how much you give, do, bust your tail, it is not appreciated. I am waiting for a position to open, same grade level or higher anywhere but here. Seeing that my bp sucks and I have this kidney infection, I am going to see about going out on full time wah as soon as possible. If I am given problems with it (seeing we now have interns on an alternate work schedule, old boss is on fulltime wah for convenience sake, etc), I will file a huge pregnancy discrimination complaint. I have decided I am done. I'll try and wah for as long as my ob will let me. Then I am taking a nice long maternity leave. They can all kiss my ass. That's just how I feel right now. It was the biggest slap in the face to give someone who has been there for 2 months employee of the month who didn't even know how to do the work. So kiss my ass agency. Hopefully I can get picked up somewhere else soon.
