ummm, so I just realized that my boss reads my blog.
“What?!?!” you say, “We thought only your friends had access??”
That would be also true. You see, back in the day when this blog began, I told 3 people at work about it, and gave them access. Didn’t seem a high-risk endeavor, as I really like these women, consider them friends, and trust them.
Then one of them got promoted a while ago – and is now my boss. And I still haven’t (obviously) quite made the mental transition. Thus, I decided to vent my spleen about shit going on at work on this very blog, which is not something – really – that one should do in a venue accessible to one’s boss. Even if she is your friend. Because, hello? We all want the people working for us to be motivated and cheerful (at least most of the time) employees with good attitudes.
I’m not sure she even has time to read this stupid blog, because she has been given a new role that is probably 3 times harder than the one I have.
But just in case:
Please know that I was tired and feeling sick and crappy and well, to be embarrassingly honest, pre-menstrual when I wrote that post. I really like my job, I don’t actually think it’s a hopeless situation (just a hard one), and by the way – I really like reporting to you, even if you are my friend and that’s a little weird. Finally, I want to be totally clear that I am extremely grateful to be gainfully employed in a time of economic uncertainty.
With much humility for stupid online venting,
Your idiot employee/friend
