This morning I came to work on an ordinary day with ordinary thoughts about work.
As soon as I got here I got a call from a client and got insulted. Apparently we're rubbish and our competitors are so much better and next time they won't trust us. Great.
Then I'm reviewing a report from my engineer before it goes outside for technical review and it needs rewriting completely. If I don't spend half a day redoing her work and send it for review like that then I'll probably get insulted and humiliated by the technical reviewer. I'm the manager and therefore responsible and accountable for everything and everyone.
It sucks sometimes.
Do I EVER get a thank you or a well done by anyone ? huuumm nope, never.
when things go well, it's perfectly normal and when they go badly I get shit from my directors.
Writing this, it sounds like a normal work situation. but sometimes it's difficult to keep my chin up.
