Workplace shit


I find myself in an interesting perdicament. One the one hand I love my job and I happen to be damn good at it. On the other hand I don't like where I work.

I have a job where I move around every couple of years. For the last 21 years I've loved my job and I've been successful at it. Last summer I was moved to a new location and I find that while I really like the people I work with and who work for me, I really don't like the people I work for. More perticularly, my immediate supervisor.

It's to the point now where I don't like going to work and it's not a fun place to be any more. It's great as long as I can stay away from that supervisor. I have moderate success since the job requires that I travel as required but the fact still remains that I have to return eventually and that same supervisor is there, just waiting it seems to suck the life from me. lol

Now some may say to discuss it with him and hope it improves. Easier said then done given the fact that its a very rank consious environment and those of us at a lower rank don't discuss things like this with a higher rank.

I'm beginning to think that my only way(s) out would be to retire and take my 20 year pension and run or wait him out and hope he's posted some time soon, most likely next summer.

I've got a family to support so I guess thats the way it's going to be but it's sure as hell going to be a long, loooonnnnggggg years wait.

Don't you hate that. A perfectly good job, but a perfect asshole over your head! Hang in there!

I'll just focus on the good bits I guess. If nothing else it's convinced me not to be a similar supervisor when I get there myself.
