    Default Wasting time...

    so my boss is out of the office today. my other colleague is on vacation. i'm in my office all alone today. i should have just stayed home. i hate this place so i'm just window shopping the internet today...downloading some music...checking out apartments in what i hope will be my new city.

    anyone have any music suggestions? i hate top 40 music. i'm into underworld, m83, moby, broken social scene, portishead, sigur ros, etc... pretty varied but clearly on the electronic side of things.

    I love those kind of days! Is there any way you can forward your office phone to your cell so that you can leave and no one would know?

    Music...I am an 80's and classic rock kinda gal, so I don't think you would like my music as much...

    o i like 80's - devo, duran duran, joy division...

    unfortunately, i think i have to stay here. oh well. i am leaving at 5pm though, no later! i hate this place - the people here just treat me like such crap. it's ridiculous. i have this graphic designer - he has NO formal background and this is his first real job okay... well just because since I started our collection I decided to bring him into the process more, now he's growing these balls where he is trying to become MY BOSS. Like it's so frustrating. This place is owned by 2 guys. One being my boss, one being my graphic designer's boss. It's strange how it's split. But I was told from the beginning "the graphic designer is your resource, he is not an apparel designer, you are". And so while I listened to that, I also wanted to bring in another eye to my design work so I have been giving the graphic designer an open door to work with me on choosing fabrics, silhouettes, etc...

    well - he gives me some trim designs which he shouldn't be doing (because he only does graphic design, to design trims, you need to spec them out and understand how the material works, the cost, etc). i had to spend a week straight fixing his stuff and making it factory ready - as well as adding some things that i needed for some designs.

    well some trims start coming in and he FLIPS OUT because he saw I added a little logo label to the package. he yells at me saying "you're not a graphic designer!! you can't do that!" and i'm like "well actually, i went to college for a certificate in graphic design so i'm not completely oblivious to it. and ya know what - you're not an apparel/fabric or trim designer!!"

    now he's being a total ass to me, his boss purposely tries to make me look stupid in front of the whole company. today i was told by the graphic designer to send my TECHNICAL PACKAGES of the trims to him and i was like "well you don't need them and they will take you forever to print out" and he was like "well honestly, i don't trust them and i want to review them"... ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!?!!?

    oh man...i'm so ready to just get up and leave. this place is so ass-backwards. no normal company would EVER let the graphic designer act out like that. especially when it's not his job!!!

    Sounds like you have a lot of anger/resentment towards the job.

    Okay. Here's the deal...how bad do you NEED the job?? I mean, I can't just up and quit my job because I am the primary wage earner who brings home not only $$ but benefits (my hubby is self employed - so we rely on my job for medical/dental/vision insurance plus my retirement savings). But, if I were single, relatively healthy, and in a pretty good job market (job markets are good for CPAs...every one needs accountants...it doesn't matter if the numbers are red or black...) if I had the trouble you had, I would probably just leave.

    You could relocate to NYC (where you have wanted to live) and find a job there. When your prospective employer asks your reasons for leaving your last job, you could say you needed to move back east.

    Good luck!

    haha...anger/resentment? nooooooo... me? haha.

    well i too am the bread-winner right now. so to get up and leave is easier said than done...so i'm slowly planting seeds and trying to make my way out of here with the smoothest transition possible.
