This Isn’t Temping: all these important work conversations…

Seem to take place while I am:

-standing in the doorway of my supervisor’s office

-holding my recently microwaved lunch

-gossiping with a coworker who is not my supervisor

-overhearing a conversation about myself

-seeing a meeting planner for a meeting to discuss me that I get in my Inbox because I have scheduling privileges in your Outlook

How is this the norm? If you are going to make decisions about my job, consult me. Don’t let it slip accidentally while I am checking in with you about something else, or while we’re both waiting for the water to boil for tea. And don’t get me started on the passive aggressive temp agency person who got upset with me for even thinking about not giving one week’s notice. Who do these people think I am?

Make a meeting with me, and tell me what you need from me, then let me decide if I can give you want you want. Don’t cross your fingers and hope I don’t quit. Silly.
