Not Me Monday

So I seen this on a few other blogs, so I thought today was perfect to try it out.

Today I did NOT get let go of my job, because if I did that would mean I'm a total failure, and I am NOT a failure! Nope, not me because that would make me feel inadequate! Never!

Ok, on a serious note, yes I did, I did get let go of my job today. Surprisingly I am very relieved. I know I haven't talked about it much on here, but I just didn't want to think about it more than I had to. I started off this new job loving it, but as the days went by, and they started throwing at me more and more duties to fulfill, and things to learn, I slowly started to hate it. I started feeling that the job wasn't for me, as far as all the administrative duties I was fine with, but then they started training me on billing and their company projections. Now, their idea of "training" me was when the v.p. was in the office which was very rare, and when their other employee had time. I started feeling really stressed out, I would bring the stress home, I would call Matt on my lunch breaks crying almost every other day. It just wasn't fair that they were expecting me to give it my all, when THEY weren't giving me their all with proper training. When I would ask said employee for help, she was rude, and make me feel like I was bugging her. She would look at me like I was asking her what 1+1 was.

So anyways, today my boss called me in her office and basically told me that when they hired me they added a bunch of new tasks to the position, and that they need to re-evaluate the position and bring someone in with a background in Finance, and that it wasn't fair to me or them. I told her that I completely agree, and that they should bring someone in with experience in finance, and give them proper training.

I honestly feel relieved. I feel a huge burden lifted and at peace with what happened today. I know God has something better for me. I had been praying about it, so I know God is in the mix.

Oh, and I did end up going to take the test for the City job on Friday. I have a feeling my job didn't like that I missed on Friday. But now I feel even better that I DID take the test! Even if I don't get called back at least I tried!

So you mean you didn't take the test last Friday? :)

I'm glad that you're relieved about the work situation, sounds like such a stressful position! Can't wait to see how the open job unfolds . . .

WHAT? I just posted and it didn't got through...let me try this again.

So, I was telling you that I am a dork and going to mention a quote that Confuscious once said..."If you choose a job that you love, you will never have to work another day in your entire life." So here's me, raising a glass (or, um, water bottle) to you "stumbling upon" that very job that fits your passions so well!

I have been gone for 10 days and haven't been checking blogs. I've missed a lot! I'm sorry about your job but what your employer did is very wrong. To hire you with one set of expectations and then add to it??? It sounds like you are better off!
I'll read more - but what is the test???
