Monday and Tuesday have been crazy. Worked late on Monday to finish work and then back at the office at 6am on Tuesday morning to get it all together and then jump in the car for a two hour drive. The drive is getting better. I don’t have so many flashbacks to the accident last year and I can drive that road a little more relaxed, not white knuckles squeezing the steering wheel to death and hopeless tears everytime I see an animal. Got to the meeting and whipped out my stuff. No one could ask for anything I did not have or had a plan to get to them in time.
And then, the project manager. He smacked me on the bottom when I was leaving. Yes I am the only female member of the team, but I am able and I get the stuff done. I don’t balk at checking out dirty areas, or climbing up into the ceiling, or roof or whatever. I do it. I deserve respect. I do not deserve to be treated like a little girl or someone who you can smack on the bottom. I found it disrespectful and demeaning. However, I was so shocked and mortified I could not say or do anything. And he just carried on walking like nothing had happened. And during the meeting he just tries to talk me down. I cannot say anything without him disagreeing. Everyone else understands and respects me. Why can’t he. The gall of the man. I don’t know if I need to do something or pretend that it was ok.
Anyway, I must go work a little bit before I can come back and check out the blogs. I have to get the last bit of info out to the team and then field calls from people who can’t read.
Have fun everyone.
P.S. I have found that I cannot work without my earphones in. I need my music. I spiral further into craziness. lol
