OT: *sigh* No one to talk to...
I just had a really bad day at work and everything seems to be falling apart. Now I'm not sure this move/promotion was the right thing for me. And none of my IM people are around. I feel so lonely :crying:

I'm supposed to meet with the manager on duty as soon as I get in and have a "mediation" type meeting with the person I'm have trouble with. I just hate conflicts and it all boils down to I really am starting to think I made the wrong choice, which totally sucks. I like the job, I like that hours. But the interpersonal crap brings it down.

I don't deal well with conflict either. I also tend to be one of those women who cries when she's angry which is so not a good thing in the workplace. :rollseyes: I hope the mediation can settle the problems. Just try to keep a clear head when your in it.

I did so much crying today. It took me my 1/2 hour lunch and an extra 1/2 hour in the manager's office just to chill out.

Thanks for talking, I'm heading to bed.

Moving...
I'm very sorry that you had a bad day yesterday, it's terrible when things go bad like that..and you've only just started a new job & moved...WOW.

Just remember, there are ALOT of different types of personalities out there & it just isn't possible to all get along(unfortunately) Sometimes it's different opinions or maybe the person just doesnt like you because your a threat...IT'S OK

You're there for a reason, maybe they needed a change & you're gonna be the one to bring it...who knows, however, you are there now so just roll with it and dont let it get to you(can be hard sometimes) but the main thing is not to take it too personally...seriously, dont let a good thing like this job be ruined by something like this...believe in yourself & others will do the same!

I'm so sorry that you had such a bad time @ work. Sounds like your co-worker may feel threatened by you. You just keep your chin up & be the bigger person & know that you have friends here to chat with

Sorry you had such a bad day. Finding the right employer can be like finding the right marriage partner. It's not easy. Hope everything works out for you.

This other person is not a knitter is she?
While you are in your "meditating" meeting, take your knitting along. She/he is sure to ask about it. Teach them to knit!
Of course I'm just being silly. I've worked with those kind before and I wish you luck.
