I hope you were able to relax in the evening. I found morning weight training to be an interesting experience, for myself, on Thursday. I didn't really feel anything until Friday evening, when my legs were nagging me a little bit, reminding me of our work together from Thursday, LOL...

Is this a big company? How many ppl do you work with?

horn_of_plenty on 04/16/2021:
It is not a big company. around 150 electricians, maybe less now bc of pandemic and events like that.

There's around 25 people total in the main office as well as a few other managers (maybe up to 10 of them) mostly working in the field now or from home.

so like 35 people in the office, TOPS. 150 electricians, Tops.

small company, and those numbers in the office include the owners, 3, that work in the office.


Donkey on 04/15/2021:
Looks like a busy day ahead of you! I can't believe I didn't comment on yesterday's entry - the Thai food sounds delicious!

Did you add the 20 minute walk to your routine?

horn_of_plenty on 04/15/2021:
i've never been this "real busy" at work in my life. it's nice. one day i hope to be compensated for my work appropriately with a raise.

:)

I did get the walk in, even though i went home late and i needed to notarize a neighbor's stuff, i still had enough time to have a 20min walk and let the neighbor know i'd be over his apt a little bit later. it was good to get the walk in and was a good amount of time, no overdoing. :)

i have so many thai leftovers :) i am not really ashamed that i do not cook, i know there's plenty like me in NYC! i would if i wanted to use my time that way, but i do not right now!


jacky82020 on 04/15/2021:
Is that show still on, Bear? My 600 pd life. Seemed they always had the same episodes. I liked Dr. Now

horn_of_plenty on 04/16/2021:
love the dr shows, as well as crime / cop detective shows...and the Fire dept show on - a sitcom about men/female firefighters working together and of course love drama

Good luck at work today! I'm impressed that you got the legs workout in this morning. Keep chipping away at the BK homework!

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2021:
my legs workouts take just about 10 minutes :)

also, i am excited for the work to be done next weekend :) i will then move onto a different use of my time on the weekends and not take any more days off unless something extraordinary comes up during Spring as I've taken a bit of them in March and yesterday. so it's time i come to work everyday :)


KathyBlue on 04/13/2021:
oh that walking tour sounds intriguing, let us know how was it! Take it easy after the vaccine though, some people had some effects so if you feel anything just reconsider the exercise if needed.

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2021:
If i feel really sick, i'll take a loss of $30 and not go on the walk. :) i registered for the walk before i had the date for the 2nd vaccine dose...i will try to go on the walk, sleep after the walk!

thank you for caring and insisting i take it easy....i will do that for the rest of that weekend xoxo


Jacky82020 on 04/13/2021:
Your job sounds as boring AF! Is it so? Or is it just me with my wildly divergent work history/interests?

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2021:
i would have to say, there's a LOT of people doing this type of desk job work. I'm glad at least mine is quite everchanging ...there's always work coming in, thank gosh.

for me, work is just to pay bills and live happily enough. :-D

for me work is NOT to get rich off of. i'd never be a good self-boss...i'd never want to own my own company or be an investor, so, i will hopefully learn what i can here at this company, but move forward in the future out of this company!


Jacky82020 on 04/13/2021:
My brothers does really boring CPA work and enjoys it. He does like all the money! Owns a second house at the lake, boats & takes good care of his kids & grands.

For me, the stock market is to make as much $$$ as possible. I donate bigly to 3 animal rescue groups, one in Africa, one in Colorado and a local cat rescue. Investing is exciting! Bought more EBS today, premarket. Significant dip due to pause of J&J vaccine. Up already. My Moderna stock is doing well too.

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2021:
good luck with your stocks, yeah, i haven't studied it and not spending money there. maybe in future :)


Jacky82020 on 04/13/2021:
Oh, forgot to ask, how are the cutie pie piggies?

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2021:

 12.00 April Sunshine Hours; (hour of sunshine added for driving out to Target and walking around, shopping there!)

24.50 January "Sunshine Hours";  20.25 February Hours in the Sun/Outside/Cardio/Commute/Moving!  28.75 March Sunshine Hours :-D

May 16th: (if not paid previously without a request by me), request pay for both 1 unused vacation day as well as 1.5 sick days that i didn't take and was accrued by me for last cycle.


Lookahead!:  Monday April 12: Vacation Day #1 :-D mostly a chily, rainy day spent mostly home doing my homework which makes me Happy :D

SO THANKFUL NOT TO BE AT WORK TODAY, AROUND THE EVIL PAYROLL LADY and just to in a negative environment. So glad for yesterday & today's downtime. Will go back to work much more relaxed tomorrow...and with a vision to just do my job and trying much harder not to take things personally. And to say as LITTLE as possible to the owners as they don't accept my thoughts as another adult and see me more as a child, although i'm turning 39 this year. If i have to, I will remind the owner that i'm not in my 20's and that i'm almost 40. I will use this if i HAVE to. because he's unfortunately not aware of it.  I hope not to have to use that statement, but I will if he continues to say anything about me being "new..." or anything related. because "new" is now being associated with "young," as i can tell.  so, if i have to bring my age into the mix, i will.  Most employed are more late 40's-60's and that's the reason for so many difficulties and confusions moreso at work.  There are a small amount younger than me, but i obviously don't fall into the 50+ crowd...so there's that - where i'm grouped with the younger crowd and any misconceptions that age group gets in the workplace. 

Tuesday, i'm heading in with an open mind, yes, but i'm also not going to walked all over.   I'm being paid LOW. and being treated Lowly, so, at this point, I have nothing more to lose besides my job. I'll just tread carefully, but will not be fully walked all over. I just can't, not now, not at 38. I'm not a kid and i'm not going to stand to be treated constantly like one. So, i'll hold back, hold my thoughts inside, answers brief to owners, and just try my best to hold myself together come Tuesday. If the owners ask me to do things that aren't ready and I can foresee or I knew it wouldn't be possible, i'll just say it in as short a sentence as i can and not involve my feelings, just the facts.

Bring it on!....taking a chance on this, the day after my shot the evening before. I don't want to miss this tour & can relax Sunday as MOM knows i'm getting a shot on Friday night as well.

Sunday, 5/9/21 Mother's Day - parents know i'm getting the shot Friday night before this; so; may go see them the following weekend...that's the good thing about family, we can probably celebrate Mother's day the following weekend.

Enjoy your day off today! I was wondering if you had pushed hard your homework assignments done on Sunday. No need to, with an extra day to devote time to it :-)

Horn_of_plenty on 04/12/2021:
I didn't have it in me to push yesterday so i just rested up, knowing very well i'd be home an extra day to get some work in today as you said :)

Enjoy your day!


innerpeace on 04/13/2021:
I hope your day at work goes better. Have a good day. Your walking bridge tour sounds fun!


Donkey on 04/13/2021:
You might want to see how you feel after your 2nd shot before leaving for your walking tour. I've heard mixed results from those around me.

I'm hoping that you won't have to "go there" with the owner.... Is that the wisest course of action? (a sincere question, not a snarky comment)

It's good to just relax. I think that's what Saturday was for me. I had really struggled with myself to see if Sunday would be relaxing too, or if I would go to the gym, get a lot of stuff done, blah blah blah ---

Horn_of_plenty on 04/12/2021:
Yes, i cannot regret letting myself relax yesterday...sometimes getting into and understanding what the work/life balance is; and how different people need different things from it; is so challenging!

Enjoy your day at the park! What a lovely opportunity to recharge your inner battery and focus on nature and plants. I've become terrible possessive of my weekends. My time off is VERY important to me, now.

Perhaps once your BK class is over, your overall stress levels will come down. Well, that's my hope for you anyways :-)

horn_of_plenty on 04/11/2021:
It was a good experience again planting trees.

I do think once the course is over things will feel a little differently :-) thank you for your comments

Sounds like you have a busy day ahead, but at least you get to start your weekend early. I'd gladly leave work to get any kind of medical whatever.

Did you get weights in last night? I thought of you as I tried, pathetically, to do leg weights.

I appreciate your comments to me yesterday :-)

Horn_of_plenty on 04/09/2021:
i left work 20 min early and the owner acts like it's the biggest favor. i can't believe how this man has turned on me. i should be OK though.

i got my weights in...started late but did them fast and i'm so glad i got it done. it's ok if you struggled with your legs. it gets better with repitition.

i'm glad you found my comments to be helpful in some way <3

let's enjoy our weekend!!! :) celebrate!


Jacky82020 on 04/09/2021:
How did work go today?

Interesting how the Amazon workers in Alabama voted not to unionize. A big factor was union dues, but the article didn’t say how much. I wonder.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/09/2021:
alabama's not a big union state. they're not used to it. it's prob a "right to work state?" i'll have to look it up.

gotta pay dues if you want a union to back you. otherwise, with no funds, how does a union operate. they don't get it.


Jacky82020 on 04/09/2021:
We are coming from different points of view. I was indifferent to unions until I began teaching at a public school. Grossly incompetent individuals were protected by the union. I’m talking alcoholics and pill heads and those who sat all day talking on cells while the kids ran amuck. I hated that union and was the only person who crossed the picket line when these a$$holes wanted more money. The union leaders called me constantly at home, saying I’d regret it. Never did. In fact, many teachers respected me all the more for having the courage they lacked.

So I get it, as far as teaching unions go. And I’m sure they are not unique.

horn_of_plenty on 04/10/2021:
I see your experience is different. There’s bad apples in all lines of work though. As a different type of union member other than teaching now that I’m in, there is no tenure or work protection / stability for me. The union has done good for electricians and their pay rate but for my work as an office worker without an electrical engineering degree I do not have enough protection to know I’ll have a job for life. But I do know it’s the union who gave my dad a good life with good wages for him to raise a family off of. That’s important.


Donkey on 04/10/2021:
I'm so sorry that Friday was another horrible, stressful day. (((hugs)))

LOOKAHEAD: 

Thursday 4/8/21 work: I'm getting thru the week one moment to the next. It's a week I will not miss once it's over.  It's not worth writing more about, except that I know in my heart that I am not wrong this time and that although I won't be listened to or acknolwedged for it, i can know in my heart that what happened here at work wasn't my doing. I know in my heart that a the payroll woman who refused to work with me continued her harassment and complaints of me even after i wasn't working with her.

I can know in my heart that although i can't amend the situation because management has told me they are not on my side (in other words, same meaning), I can know in my heart that these things happen, life isn't fair, and love myself more for being myself. It's been a very tough week and I am sure the bullying and badgering will continue, although I will not say a thing.

I won't complain no matter what she does to the owner and only to my boss if it's worth it.  Like most office status quo, what has always "been right" is "right." I'm not looking for advice.  I've been thru similar things before. There's age discrimination in play. The woman who's bullying is payroll and knows my age, salary, where i live. nothing's good enough for her. she wants me out. Hey, if it happens, it happens.  I've been told by the owner, "you are the low one on the totum pole." and let me tell you, if those words aren't hurtful coming from an owner, when you go to them for help because you are concerned, i don't know what is. I didn't go to him, until she didn't stop, only after it kept coming to me, from the owner and my boss.

it's over now. but just to know it's not ok here to stand up when someone is hurting me - because they've been here a long time - and that i'm automatically wrong because i'm new (and younger), is not right. it's not right because the woman is a bully and trying to hurt me, on purpose, instigating all situations. And when i stand up because i want to say i need help, i'm told not to come to back tothe owner, to take care of it with my boss...even when the payroll lady goes straight to the owner. i'll always remember this, like i remember other extraordinary workplace scenarios in my mind, for life.

Everyone struggles with something. I've been dealt work struggles throughout my life. I'm not saying i'm never wrong and never could have done better. But this one time, i wouldn't change a thing I did. Because even if i did things not as well in the past, in my heart i know i did it right this time. That is the only thing that matters to me at this point.

I am making XXk, dealing with office harassment and bullying, in a company that goes with status quo becaues that's what's easier for everyone. this is the true world. most people will not be out to help.  This situation has been extremely stressful, hurtful and upsetting to me over the past 1.5 weeks or so.  It's something that could have been stopped in it's tracks as soon as it started. That's life.

Work:

**LOGGING** to be done today: Jan/Feb/March unpaid DONE!

finish other smaller tasks in last hour of work, leave promptly at 4pm.

Tonight: speedy and quick upper bod strength workout & some leg massaging for preventative purposes.

 

Thursday Eats

Large banana 150, coffee 40, coco custard pie so tasty 210 1/8 slice 400

9:45/10am snacks: chocs coated greens bar splurge 300..need fast energy today...little extra, 250.

lunch: few fries 100, mix of rice/sauteed greens/beans 250, ground turkey 150.  500, green sweet tomatoes so good. 50. 550.

snacks: tbd :-D half a pack of sour gummies 100

dinner: the insides of two heavily fried vegetable rolls, large size, 200. the outside of one of them...and i'm very nauteous now from the oil 400, egg 100, and 3 crappy gummy moons no name brand 120. 820, sick to my stomach.

If you've done the best that you can do, it what you thought was right, then there's not much more you can do.

Let's focus on getting you through today and tomorrow. Chalk this week up a a rough week, and just get through it.

Having said that, when you are "low man" on the pole, keep your head down, get the work done, and try to keep quiet. They aren't going to change their ways, so don't waste any more energy on feeding this negative situation, with its negative people.

I know it's really hard and not a great way to spend your day. I think it's times like these where the line between work and life becomes so clear.

horn_of_plenty on 04/08/2021:
I appreciate you here, I have read and am thankful for your comments.

horn_of_plenty on 04/08/2021:
I have a vacation day on Monday to do finish all remainder work this weekend for the course. It's my last day off until Summertime, if i am still employed here till then! I shall rest up and get some good sleep over the weekend.

i write this in regards to your comment about work and life and the line is clear. That vacation day is a definite necessity for this work life balance. And i'm so glad i did take it, planned for it a week ago, and it's in the books to happen for me.

Maria7 on 04/08/2021:
When I was still working, I had to put up with bullies over me. Highly stressful. I wanted to quit EVERY DAY. But I hung in there, with our good Lord's help. There are people in this world who despise you for whatever reason, no matter if you do your job perfectly or not. They would still despise you. Going to the biggest boss never worked for me because the biggest boss and those over me always stuck together, regardless. Their cruelty is something between them and the Lord, so let HIM handle it. Just try to get through it until you can do something different. Prayers for you! And HUGS!!!

horn_of_plenty on 04/08/2021:
I can tell you have lived thru similar situations to me. I agree, it will come back to them from him, above. xoxo


Jacky82020 on 04/08/2021:
Maybe all you can do is suck it up and be nice. Never let them see you sweat. Time will either clarify issues or maybe you’ll have to move on. Can’t see putting up with crap like that indefinitely. BIG HUGS 4 HOP!

i have nowhere to go...so suck it up it is.

Jacky82020 on 04/08/2021:
The old bit-ch is probably jealous because you’re younger & smarter & cuter than she’ll ever be or ever was.
