This is getting to the point of stupid! I found out today that my manager is telling everyone who will listen that I am jealous of her and trying to get her in trouble so I can get her job! I have done nothing of the kind. She also was told by someone, that I applied for this position and that is why I am trying to get her in trouble. I have tried to do what she has asked me, I have shown her the ropes and kept her hiney out of hot water on more than one occasion, I have done everything I can to make sure that she is successful in this office and now I am the bad guy? I did apply for this postion and if I had felt ready to do the job, she wouldn’t be here right now. I am the one who decided that I wasn’t ready and that if they had someone who was qualified to take this position and was someone they felt would be a good fit for the office to hire her and let me have the time I needed to learn how to be an office manager. I didn’t then or now plan to take her job but to step into a position that they wanted to create for me. To come along side her and help her with whatever she wanted me to do. I guess that in order for this to work you must work with someone who is secure in themselves. I am very angry right now. She is working very hard at turning everyone in the office against me, painting a picture of my character that more closely resembles her own, not mine. This is not my style. I do not have to belittle others to make myself feel better, or lie about their intentions so that I will look better. This woman has nothing to fear, but herself. She is looking pretty petty and bad right now in the eyes of the doctors. That knowledge dosn’t make it any easier to work up front. It is heartbreaking to me that I am dreading going to work now, and not able to enjoy what I do.
