There is no question about it, today was my worst day in a long time.
First words out of my supervisor’s mouth today, not hello, not hi, not good morning, but “I hired your replacement”. Fuck you too. She’s well aware that my contract is up in a month. She’s well aware that I don’t have another job lined up. She’s taking some sort of sadistic pleasure in this.
Meet the new boss for the first time today. He has no idea who I am. Sure, I’ve worked here six years. At some point or another I’ve worked every position we have, including heading my department for more than two years. Has anyone mentioned this to him? No. Have they mentioned to him that my contract is up in a month and I might be needing an extension? No. Have they mentioned that without me this place would have collapsed a dozen times in the last six years? No.
On top of that I just got home. Its 11 o’clock. PM. I got to work at 9 am. I don’t get paid overtime. And the extra hours I put in are covering someone else’s work. Its been assigned to me for months. Why it wasn’t reassigned to the person it belongs to months ago, well, the only thing I can assume is that they get paid overtime, I don’t. I love being taken advantage of.
