Drama in the workplace
Tuesday, January 12, 2010
My continued homework assignment, so blog for today:
Today’s been a pretty quiet day and I’m really thankful for that. I’ve been able to catch up for the most part here at work after a week with the auditors. Actually, it’s been quite entertaining!
Drama in the workplace can sometimes be really funny. And I have to wonder why?? Long story short, my boss (pushing 60 years old) is head over heels in love with our AR clerk (21 years old). I’ve never thought he would act this way after 7 years working together. He is a Vice President of Finance and supposed to be professional. Little does he know he’s being used in a BIG way. She is a very pretty girl – perfect body, blonde and all. He even had her office moved from the other side of the building to right next door to us so he’s right across the hall from is” favored” person. It’s pretty sad when the auditor mentions it to me and refers to her as the “special one”. They have mentioned it might be an audit concern because other employees are obviously jealous which can lead to employee fraud in some way. It’s a daily soap opera!!
Now my question – what is he really thinking will come from this?? I mean really?? He’s NOT thinking – that’s the problem. She really could bury him with a possible sexual harassment charge (he’s started pulling her pig tail and touching her neck from what I hear). But you don’t dare say anything to him about her – he’ll snap right back!! I’m choosing to stay out of it.
On a totally different note – I signed up for the Valentine’s race here which is a 14k on Feb 13th. It works right in line with my ½ marathon on March 20th here and then….. Off to Idaho for the Robie race!! Can’t wait!!!
