This sounds very much like the Mennonite college where I worked for two years. Most people were nice, but there were a few that just made it unbearable.......

I totally understand what this is like......and I think, unfortunately after five years there, patterns and relationships/heirarchies have been established between people.....so it would be hard to restructure.

Can you switch departments?

I'm so sorry you're going through this......it's just awful living with that kind of tension and life IS too short to be in that kind of environment. :(

Yes, I think Olive is a trendy celab.......celib.......celebrity (seem to have lost spelling ability for some reason) name!!!!!!!
No Dorises, no Nancies, no Susans, Janets, Judys, Patsys............oh well. We are classics. :lol:


and all the Beverlys I've ever known have been LARGE, less-than-feminine women. :o :(


Good morning Silliyak.com (with my best Robin Williams voice) Yeah, my mom was named Doris. I only know grey haired lades named Doris.

Doris was the mother of firty Nereids. WOW, busy girl :o


No way Goosey- that's cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Looks like our moms were named after a woman who was busy getting busy!

Susie- Yes, you must get a kitty for your dingo! Angus has two kitties and is madly in love with the big one Simon. He kisses him and love nibbles his legs!!!!! :wub: :wub:

Yes...Amy sings from her verrrryyy tortured soul. Her voice is somethin' else...
She hearkens back to the soaring voices of the 50's and 60's divas. I like You know I'm No Good:

http://ca.youtube.co...h?v=HFVM5pVTwkM

Superb arrangement behind her.

If only she weren't such as skank.


Oh NO!!!!!!!!! the skank word was used..........my LEAST FAVORITE word ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You are SO right...he looks rather bovine. Must get a pic of his troublesome gums, since they're brand-spankin' cha-ching new!... <_<


Looking good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So after the diasterous day at work....I came home and shed a lot of tears...I am not sure that is the job for me...things sail smooth but things have been rough lately and I have been keeping it all in....I still have alot inside too..don't know what to do anymore.


Oh Amanda, big hugs :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: The Silly yak thread.....it's not JUST for giggles.

Amanda, If you can't switch departments (or come up with some other way to make your work environment better), you do need to put things in perspective. You've been there 5 years and that seems like a long time because you're 25!!! I'm guessing it's the first real job (not counting the fast food places or temp jobs or whatever). But look at it this way . . . How many years are you planning on working? Would you want them all in the kind of environment you are in? It was hard for me to leave my first employer. I felt some weird sense of loyalty . . . they would have laid my butt off in a heartbeat if they had needed to. Once I left, I couldn't believe I made it as difficult on myself as I did.

However . . . that being said . . . I would see if there was some other position that I could transfer into and if not, look for something else but don't quit until you have something else lined up . . . nobody needs that kind of pressure. Good Luck and Hugs. Things will work out (keep in mind, probably not as quickly as you would like). ;)

Amanda, that sounds like a REALLY stressful situation. I'm terribly sorry that you have to go through all that. Why do there have to be so many jerks in the world?!?!?! :angry: In my limited experience, a bad boss is one thing but there's nothing worse than bad co-workers. I hope you are able to figure things out and find a new job if that's what you ultimately decide to do. In the mean time pamper and treat yourself any way you can to try and keep those stupid co-workers off your mind while you're not at work. I'm sure that's much easier said than done. :(

Morning Sillies

I moved into this department a little over 2 years ago. It was more money and day shift. I can make department moves, I am just trying to figure out what I should try next, the first place I worked here (lab) John and myself both left (turnover is high) due to bad management, no raises, weekends/holidays, and just other stress related factors.
I always felt welcome in the lab. I would go back there, even though I hear it got worse....but I am afraid they will not take me at the rate I make now, and I would want to work 2nd shift, which would mean I would never see John....I am not sure that is the right move either.
Once we have a baby, John would perfer if I worked parttime to be home with our child, in which case, I will try to take up a PT spot in the lab at night. We are going to start trying soon, so maybe a job move is not an option....

I guess I am one of those people who is emotional, but I just would love to feel like I belong.

Hey, Silly Gang...
A bizarre few days we're having weather-wise...10 degrees (50 F), incredible fog all day, making driving quite a trick. All that snow is melting away...could have major flooding along the river. Lotsa work for DH!

A big good morning to you, Amanda...I'm so sorry you're experiencing this kind of stress. We're in our full-time jobs all day long, so an unhappy atmosphere is very taxing and can affect all parts of one's life.
I agree with the others that you should begin actively looking within another department for something. You'd still be in the hospital, but away from the people. One good thing: at least this is something that is potentially easier to fix than if it were the work itself. You can stay in the same hospital enviornment, but switch staff (maybe I'm painting an unrealistically simple world...I'm assuming there will be openings elsewhere!)
You're so young...this is a small part of your entire working life...and this too shall pass.
You sound too talented to be with these wretched co-workers. Put them on here!! We'll chat with them. Actually, I seem to have an innate ability to clear the scene of people...Yes!! guide to them to this site!! You want them out of your life, Let me ask them about receding poodle gums, and yeti allergies, and flowcharts.... :lol: :lol:

:lol: not a'tall, you silly.

but yeah, where IS everybody? :unsure: Is NIcola at the dentist today? can't remember.


Oh, oh, oh...I promise....[/i]No more talk of poodle gums, of ugly female names, of wonky cartilage, skanks, yeti massages....Nobody stopped me in time!



THE HELL YOU SAY!!!!!!!!!!! You will talk MORE adn MORE about the aforementioned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Sillies, I have no silly today in me at all........ :( we just got back from the vet.....the end seems quite near for Stinker......we have her pain meds......the doctor will come HERE to....execute the final act........

I"m sorry.....I can't even talk about it. gotta go. We'll be okay.....when this is all over. But darn it if that Stinkbug hasn't hung on and pulled out of things a zillion times before....I know she won't pull out this time, but she may fight longer than she should.....still has a tail wag and a smile in her.

So.....I'm trying to decide whether to take a gentle drive to the snow today.....mountains, one last time.......if I harness her in, she could be stable....she used to be quite the Snow Sprite.....adorable, frolicking cross-country skier. :)

mygawd........now *I* am the bummer............ :huh:

Yep--slow day....

Amanda, I'm sorry for the way your co-workers are being. What is the matter with people anyway....are you feeling a little better this afternoon?

Susie, I'm beyond sad for you....we had to make a similar decision about our cat, Hudson, years ago. He was actually more like a beagle than a cat--smart as a whip--and personality??? He had kidney disease that was terminal and was in pain--we couldn't let him go on like that. No words of wisdom for you--just know I'm thinking of you and your dear girl.

"Silly Yak thread--not just for giggles"--good one, Bev!

Emily--I look so forward to reading your silliness--you could never drive anyone away. Just a slow computer day, I guess...
