I do feel like I have to rush through my work to deal with other stuff, at least some of the time. When we were short staffed, fine. While new staff was being onboarded, fine. Now? It doesn’t feel fine anymore. My boss and I have even had discussions in the past about offloading some of what he manages onto me, which I’d like since it’d be growing my own skillset within my dept! I don’t think my boss realizes how frustrated I am. We’ve talked about it before but that was several months ago, when staffing was still an issue. IDK if it’s better for him to talk to the other dept about wtf is going on or if I should do it. I’d be fine advocating for myself directly. I almost said something to the manager who was in charge of the master schedule of the clusterfuck this morning when we were alone at one point, but didn’t think it was the right time or place. I did point out that there was no reason for me to stick around this a.m. if there was nothing for me to do, and I didn’t even say it in a blame-y way, but he got a little defensive. His response made no sense, it felt like he was trying to tell me I’d misunderstood something, but I know I didn’t. I’m trying to give him some grace because I know he’s relatively new, it’s a lot to organize and manage, blah blah blah. I just… shouldn’t have had to be there in the capacity I was there this weekend. It wasn’t a good use of my time and I kept having to find quiet spaces to get my own work done.
