Bring on the suntan lotion, lounge chair and the non-stop pitchers of margaritas people, because I’m ready!!!! I know its been a while since I posted anything new, but work has me uber busy and I’ve finally caught up. I mean, as much as I can because my boss is non-stop, and that’s a good thing. She’s a great mentor and is teaching me the ropes….can anyone say Vice-President Huntress? Okay I’m getting a head of myself but, she’s hinted somewhat at the fact that I can do a VP job. Which is incredible since I came from a micromanaging environment prior to this job. Anyway, on with the show!
I’ve been here two months, and my VP and the Chief of Staff have been awesome when it’s come to helping me acclimate to my new position. They’ve been nothing but supportive and they’ve helped me when I found myself stuck. I love my new job, and not only am I beginning to thrive, I just found out that my VP has been assigned another title, VP of Finance Administration. So, this is a blow to Impostor Huntress’ boss because she is….kind of……having that title taken away from her. And Impostor Huntress let me know that her boss isn’t too happy with my boss taking that title and job duties away from her.
Now Impostor Huntress has calmed down as far as giving me attitude, especially since I pushed back (in a not so nice way) and everything between the two of us is okay. Then this happened, and she’s worried that her boss is going to wage all-out war on my boss. Both are Vice President’s, both work at the leisure of the President. But only my boss actually does a good job. Yes okay I might be a bit bias here, but if Impostor Huntress’ boss was doing such a wonderful job, she wouldn’t have lost that title, right?
Anyway, I’m adjusting to the hectic schedule of having to support two people. It’s nonstop but it makes my day go by fast. But not fast enough to avoid the tepid wrath of Fake April, yes she’s back and things between us got heated last week. I say tepid because she’s all talk, and empty behind that plaster like face she has. She lost her cool when I (rightfully so) left early after my boss told me I could. She emailed her supervisor, who isn’t my supervisor about my leaving early. I was fucking livid after I found out this little conniving bitch is clockwatching me!!! I told her supervisor that it’s none of Fake April’s damned business what I do, and if my VP is okay with it, she can go to hell. Her supervisor said for me to calm down and that she didn’t take what Fake April said seriously. Again, that little snake needs to stay away from me or I swear she’ll catch fiery hell from the real Huntress.
She’s a snarky little whiner and I love putting her in her place. Especially since I found out she’s still bitching about not being able to apply for my job. AND proving me right when I said she’s not qualified to do my job. She’s made so many mistakes that it makes me wonder what the fuck she’s still doing here. Her spelling and grammar is horrendous, she’s rude and condescending not just to me or Impostor Huntress, but to my boss and visitors as well. And I defend my boss, telling Fake April that if anyone can fire her it’s my boss. She ran to go tell her supervisor, that when “Supervisor” told me to stop telling her things like that. I told Supervisor that it’s true, and that she needs to brush up on her Operating Policies.
UPDATE…..My second boss, the Chief of Staff told us today that she’s taken a job with one of the local school districts as their chief auditor. I was to say the least, relieved….and yes I know that sounds mean but supporting two people who are extremely busy is hard to do. My VP told me they won’t be filling her position, which is great. I have so much work right now, I leave my office late, and late for me is about 6:30 or 7pm. When I use to get out at 4:30 in my other, micromanaging department. But I do my job, and thus far my VP is happy with me, or at least that’s what she’s told me.
Then there is “Supervisor” who happens to be the assistant to the university’s president, and I didn’t ask many questions when I started but now I wonder exactly what does she really do? She’s been working from home since I started, only occasionally coming into the office. Other VP’s come in, ask for her and when someone tells them she’s not here, they all have the same reaction. They roll their eyes, shrug their shoulders and sigh, one of the VP’s actually got frustrated enough to say out loud “Does she even work?!” Good question, because for someone who makes six figures you’d think she’d be here all the time, helping “assist” the President and such.
Stay safe everyone, and WEAR YOUR MASK!! This the Huntress, over and out!
