I'm so angry with my supervisor right now.
I have a job interview this week. Hooray for me right?
When the interview was arranged last week I went and saw my boss and arranged to have a half day off. By choice I elected to not have the full day. Work still goes on, and Wednesdays are no exception.
My boss seemed a little disheartened. Which made me feel like a bitch because he's a great guy and an awesome boss. But he accepted it and told me to fill out a leave form. Which I did.
Today my supervisor comes up and tells me that my leave should have been approved through him first. I told him that I went to the boss-man as soon as I found out I needed time. Supervisor asked what I needed time off for. I told him I needed to do something in the city. He asked what. I told him I had a job interview. He clammed up and left.
Walking down the corridor a bit later and he catches sight of me. And he comments 'We just bought overalls for you'. I replied 'I told you I was still looking'. Which was true. He asks me if I went for the job at *insert name here*. I told him yes. And he starts to tell me that the facilities at the place I applied were substandard 'catacombs with no windows'. Then he tells me that he's being really positive about all of this.
I get what I need from the store room and return to my work area. Where he is telling two of my co-workers about my interview. Two co-workers that I didn't want to know. They start commenting on how the director was full on and would have me writing scientific papers. Which I would love.
I told three people at work. I chose to not tell anybody else because I'd look like a real dick if I didn't get the job. My choice was to look like said dick, or be the bitch for not telling them.
I figured that everyone would know about the interview by the end of the day. So regardless I'd look like a dick. I told.
I feel like I was forced into it. I feel like my supervisor is trying to convince me to stay, by telling me how good I have it there, and how bad everything else is at the other place. I feel like I'm nothing more than a bit of gossip. I want to be able to make up my own mind. Before today I know I would have had a heart wrenching choice to make, if I was even offered the job. But now....
Its different now.
