ehhh hate that Ruthy. Last night i was ready to listen to a personal advice call. then the fire alarms go off.. bloody 6pm! So being one of the wardens I had to do all the drills/evac procedures and keep people from leaving the office, when all they wanted to do was go home. eventually that happens and everyone decides it a good idea to go. I waste a good 30 minutes of my time before i go back to my call. Then it takes me 1 hour to complete, with a possible breach. *shakes fist*

Sometimes i'm very lucky i can't hold grudges too much.

as part of my role I have a monthly accounting task that the boss likes me to have completed within the first day or 2 of the month. In order to complete this task I need all staff (a whopping 5 of them) to have their monthly time sheets completed (these SHOULD be done every day, but more often than not they get left until the last minute). Every fucking month I have to chase one particular staff member to complete hers... we do not like each other and recently went to blows. This month I've emailed her asking her to complete them but she hasn't (it will take her all of 3 minutes to do) & now I'm getting anxious because I need to verbally address her and say "can you please finish your time-sheets so I can get on with my job?"... she really puts me on edge & I really dislike her. Ugh, I hate feeling so anxious over something so trivial.

Fuck that noise, copping out just because you don't like confrontation is bullshit. Pull the bitch into line.

A bit maybe...

Hey smorchy, I have been reading the South America travel thread... did you ever end up going?

Hey smorchy, I have been reading the South America travel thread... did you ever end up going?

Awww, so glad to hear you had an amazing time!!!
Its always interesting to return to the real world after an experience like that, and you see thr huge gaping flaws in everyday life.
I hope you find a way to feel connected to your holiday self... And remember not to take life seriously all the time

I ended up not being able to go because they timetabled the req subject in the wrong semester. But, i guess im happy here, so it worked out in my favour.
Heeeeeeeaps interested to one day go though. Are you planning a trip??

Ruthus, why dont you just have a word to your boss? If you keep having to whinge to her each month, she isn't going to change, but if the shit storm comes from above she has no choice. Saves you from having to do the dirty work too ;]

I definitely will be talking to my Boss, I'm just in the process of putting a few thoughts to paper (I like to do this so I dont get too flustered or anxious & forget things or have my thoughts misconstrued) & will sit down my the big cheese when the other employees are back from Annual Leave (next week)... sounds pussy, but I kinda want back up when I do this.

Ruthy I get where you are coming from about not wanting to be confrontational.
Confront something might not make you feel comfortable. But in most cases is the most effective.
Pre-emptive is my way to go. I always send out emails just before the end of the month to remind the team that Task Y is required to be done by X date so I won't have to hassle them in the first week when things are super busy. 90% of the time I get results. For the remaining 10% I would then email the staff individually or see them directly as a reminder the day it is due. If still no dice, then send an idividual email with the boss CC'ed in that includes your pre-emptive email and the follow up post start of the month.

One thing I like to do is use the company values (whichever relevant 'adult' comes to mind) around getting things in on time. Brown-nose to the managers maybe. But people do respond to that shit.

I definitely agree with the suggestions about going to speak to your boss about help on how to manage the situation. By going to them first is a good heads up so they are aware of the situation prior to receiving cc'ed emails. it's their staff not yours. They shoud be managing them.

Thanks heaps LIR! I'm always pre-emptive! In our meetings I remind all staff, then an email goes out the day before to remind them. Yeah there are A LOT of things he [my boss] needs to be aware of with regards to this particular employee & he definitely needs to be "managing" her better. I can only do so much in terms of "management" as I'm only the Office Manager & after a certain point I feel I'm overstepping my HR duties/bounds & it should be up to my Boss to step in.

Thanks guys, you know, you lot are alright, I don't care what anyone else says

Oh... ok!!!

*ignorance is bliss*


but in terms of your boss perhaps not taking a lead in addressing matters with that employee, you should perhaps just mention to them that you find that staff member challenging in approach. Have a list of tactics you have tried which were unsuccessful. Maybe mention that this person does not report directly to you, therefore you felt that this should be brought to their attention.

Hopefully that's the hint for the boss initiate some managerial arsewhooping.

i need to vent, big time.

a friend of mine has got himself in to a bit of a predicament with his on again/off again girlfriend... they have just found out recently that she is pregnant. this was a bit "err..." for a while cos she is a recovering drug addict. but she's been doing really well and things were looking up, so all things considered, this was mostly pretty good news and my mate was really excited about the prospect of being a dad.

yesterday, she had a relapse. she had his car cos she was meant to go to a doc's appt for the baby, but instead she decided to blow off her appt and go see her dealer. and then she rocked up an hour late to pick him up from work, still laced.

fucking junky bitch whore.

terminate pregnancy before the ice/hammer/shabs does that for her. Tell him to cut his loses and run.
I'm all for second chances in life... except when it comes to junkies. Sorry if this makes me sound like a ****, but I've known too many junkies/x-junkies to think any differently - once a junkie, always a junkie. From my experiences, even if they stay "clean" they still always behave like sketchy, self indulgent, pricks who only have their interests at heart.

totally agree with you guys, imo they should be visiting a clinic ASAP to terminate. i don't know what their plans are, i just needed to get that off my chest. i can't fucking believe it.

thing is, he posted on facebook already telling everyone about it, and specifically asked people not to make any negative comments cos they are both very excited... so obviously he knows a shitload of his friends weren't going to be very happy about it. can't imagine how he's going to go next time someone asks him how it's all going...

"oh, yeah, great. so-and-so had a relapse and probably gave our unborn kid brain damage"

so fucking selfish. if this chick can't fucking stay clean for the sake of her child then... i don't know. it just makes me so fucking angry and sad at the same time

Sorry to say, but I'd expect she'd be of the vein 'gonna milk this baby for all I can!' crew.

i hope so too

he's been trying so hard to support her through her recovery and up until a couple of months ago wasn't prepared to go on but she has made a huge effort so he decided they could give it another go. now she's just thrown it right back in his face. makes me sick to my stomach

the saddest thing is we were all expecting something like this to happen.

The problem is, it is cheaper to get high than it is to terminate a baby.

Fuck that.
