I know some of you come here specifically to read this and you are probably the ones who run back, tell your “friends” and play 8th grade gossip. There are some of you who come to read this stuff because you, like me, cannot understand how an organization – or a group of “adults” can behave so horribly. There are some of you who come here for other reasons – and well quite frankly I’m curious why. LOL.
So I’ve been on leave from the government for almost 6 months… 6 glorious months. My brain turned back on, I feel like I’m 24 years old again trying to try and learn new things. I just completed my first set of performance appraisals for my staff and I thought the process was fascinating. Odd, eh?
I was hoping that all the issues with the government were over… they are not.
Let me re-cap.
I took leave – I’m entitled through the collective agreement and I found a job in management, something that I would never had received at the government no matter how much I asked, hard I worked, or education I received. For some reason some dingbat/vendictive/fucked up former colleague of mine “googled” me and forwarded an anonymous print out showing my new position, then began to plan my demise and talk about it.
Long story short… I still work there and am still on leave. For some reason the rumour mill is in high season (seriously, don’t these people have ANYTHING else to talk about) and my leave has become me doing illegal work and getting fired. I’ve been “fired” probably once a week for 5 months now, for many horrible things. I have sent a letter and emailed the director asking her to make this harassment stop and spoke to my former group manager to to ask him to stop talking about this situation and while he claims innocence, I know it still exists.
So fast forward to today… I am standing in a post office way north of the city when I am approached by a former client of mine through the government and what does she tell me… That someone there told her that I was fired for wrongdoings and much more horrible lies that one should never tell a member of the public. Nice, eh? So this former client tells me of the ills she has ad and the way she has been treated by my former employer and I gave her the same advice I would have given to her if I still worked there. She provided me the name and phone number of the “team leader” who was talking about me and tomorrow I will proceed to call my former group manager to once again ask (should I have to?) that they use some common sense and keep their mouths shut. For some reason these morons think any of this is going to make a difference to me?!? I don’t live and breathe that gossip crap and as it always pained me to see so many unqualified twats get promoted before me, I really could care less what someone thinks about me. They don’t know how I live or what I do in my spare time, nor should they want to… But they do. That’s just creepy.
