I had a confrontation with a person at work before Christmas.I work in a charity shop and was asked to go into work on 23rd December. I had just developed the flu bug and felt really ill. I thought that I was running the shop as the boss had the day off so I dragged myself it to work but when I got there I found that someone else was running the shop. I got angry with this person and swore at him and phoned my boss she said she had asked mt to work as she was short of people to work that day but in the end there were 4 people there. she then phoned me back and asked me if I had a problem with this person running the shop and I had to say no.(but the real answer is yes) he is a jumped up 21 year old who thinks he is it. he walked round all day with his hands in his pockets doing no work at all. I forced myself to work till 4pm and by that time I was really struggling and had to leave. I was due to go back to work after christmas on the 27th December but I was still ill I finally went back to work on 6th January and was waiting for the you know what to hit the fan about my behaviour before christmas but no-one said a word. On Thursday our area manager visited the shop and sure enough on Friday morning I was dragged into the office and given a talking to by my boss. I was told I had been reported to the area manager for my behaviour and the she reeled of a load of stuff to me. One of the thing she said was that I was not pulling my weight but everyone else seems to have taken over parts of my job leaving me less and less to do. she informed me that she was taking two weeks off soon but was not going to leave me in charge of the shop as she could not (trust) me to be fit enough to run the shop as i always seemed to be ill. I think she will find I haven't been ill for months and even if I am ill I tend to drag myself into work which is probably how I got ME in the first place. Has anyone else had any experiences like this? (sorry for the long moan)!
