All’s Not Quiet On The Western Front

:::Update::: Some of the ruffled feathers are smoothed down now, but I’m still pretty rattled. The big project is now, thankfully, out of my hands. It is amazing how the culture of an organization can get so outta whack with one person in charge who is unstable.

Wouldn’t you know it….when the husband goes away for three days, crap hits the fan at work. ARRGGH! There are/were lots of misunderstandings surrounding a big project I was working on and hurtful things were said behind my back. Why can’t folks just come to me if they are unhappy, instead of sniggling to others? Call me a hopeless Aspie, but I just can’t seem to understand gossiping and passive aggression.

All this to say, PLEASE pray for wisdom. I really don’t want to quit yet, not so close to Jeff’s graduation. I am not directly in trouble, but the situation revealed what others’ prejudices were. My boss and other librarians are on my side, too…still, made me cry, gosh darn it!

    “Call me a hopeless Aspie, but I just can’t seem to understand gossiping and passive aggression.”

    You’re not a hopeless Aspie, even people who don’t have Aspergerg’s have trouble understanding gossip and passive aggression.

    Courage! 🙂

    Arrrgh, I hate those situations, where you go home feeling all muddled and ashamed and paranoid and bullied. Prayers for you to know that the nasty prejudices and the discontent are useless and, in due time, won’t matter.

    I’ve delt with this type of stuff on the job and I can tell you I ended up leaving because it’s was messing me up badly and also causes issues at home because I would be so flustered about it. I’m much happier now.

    I’ll pray for you that this troubles will pass quickly.
    God Bless

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
