Today is the first day back in the office after 9 days away and to say the least...it is horrible! I really need to find a way to find some happiness and fulfillment in this job or else I think I may have a breakdown.
Don't get me wrong, I must like it here since I've been with the company for 11 years....but I am far from being happy. The problem is that I can't pinpoint exactly what it is that is making me so miserable. The obvious reason is that my job responsibilities have increased ten-fold over the past 5 years or so, but yet I haven't had a raise in almost 7 years. It is so frustrating.
I also don't appreciate the amount of "off the clock" work I do because the other managers are incompetent and most of our customers tend to call me when they need something because they know it will get done. Regardless of the fact that the things they are calling me about have nothing to do with my position in the company.
I can bitch and complain all I want, but I guess until I can pinpoint all my issues and then confront the necessary people, nothing will change.
There will be some big decisions being made in the near future! Wish me luck...
