I was warned when I started work, to “watch out for” a specific co-worker. She wasn’t managerial or anything, just that she had a bad attitude and snaps on people, fairly often. And then I would be asked every so often how she was treating me, had she snapped at me, stuff like that. Especially being the new person, I REALLY don’t want to get involved in work politics.
The truth is, she has been very nice to me, for the most part. She’s a little rough around the edges, but she helps me anytime I need help, is always nice, strikes up conversations with me, and tells me not to be sorry when I apologize for not knowing something, or doing something wrong, or needing her help. I dunno, that seems very progressive, to me.
I have seen that she has some issues with some of the people in our department. I just...honestly, don’t get involved, as much as possible.
Today, she was asked to show me how to use a tool and to sign me into it so I could learn by using it. Makes sense, she seemed fine with it, even welcoming when I suggested that we wait until after my break because I was scheduled to go for break in about 5 minutes or so. But at one point, she called our department head, saying she had to talk to them about something. I asked casually if everything was okay and she basically told me that, no, it wasn’t, and that she has her own job to do and she shouldn’t be expected to babysit others in the department. Almost right away, she turned around and was like “Not about you! I’m not talking about you, don’t worry. You’re new, you need help, you’re learning.”
So I’m wondering if that was a slip up, or am I just experiencing more of these politics in my department? It isn’t really bugging me, per se, I’m just...I guess curious? If that makes sense? When I went on my break I REALLY wanted to tweet “Am I in trouble, or did I just experience some workplace drama?” but then figured that would be kinda...attention grabbing, I guess?
I’ve prided myself on getting along with everybody. I hope that can continue without a problem.
Wow so the past few nights have been cabaret at my school.
It was good, thursday night we were no where near as good or organized as we were friday night. And turns out cabaret lasted till 10:30 on thursday and 10 onfriday...but then we had to cleanup which took an hour lol.
So chris playing in EVERYTHING that played for cabaret; concert band, junior band, orchestra, stage band and his band Thursday Night Special. Him and Peter were crazy tired by the last act.
I was proud that chris played so much. but it kinda sucked cause i had no one to dance with during stage band or T.N.S....
the afterparty was cool it was at chris kraz's house. i swear hes rich :| his bathroom had a sauna in it! and in the sauna was a DVD player and t.v.! and there was a nice jacuzzi style tub, and walk-in shower. the kind of bathroom on like extreme home maker lol. OHH and the best part! i got to stay out til 1am. that was a first! but we didnt get to kraz's house till like a little bit after 11.
All in all Cabaret 2007 was fun :). and chris met my grandparents.
ha and like last years cabaret there was a bit of drama. which ill explain in another blog....
