I am trying to regain my composure after the ex-Boss tried to rattle my cage again with a request she didn’t understand herself, so explaining it to her was useless. I just hate the way she charges in and starts off on an aggressive tone, only to be put in her place after she hears the explanation.
It’s really difficult getting a point across to someone who has such negative feelings toward you. I tried not to get affected by it but the woman just unnerves me. So I ended up with a headache and I’m trying to shake it off. I am supposed to be on holiday mode today after we had our small Christmas get-together here with my department (sans the new Boss who is in another office for another Christmas luncheon with more of his people, and who will be off to another one later this afternoon for another group of his reports.) Then I get that call.
I’m better now, but still a tad bit upset. I guess I Just have to grin and bear it all. They just needed clarification, true, but it’s the manner by which the ex-Boss just presumes I did everything wrong again. It’s that tone that gets to me. I guess I Just have to grin and bear it and just let it out the other ear.
She never even thanked me, and I guess she rolls her eyes at the thought of how grateful she is that we are no longer working together. If she only knew how relieved I am and how happy I am where I am right now.
