...... so why tell me how to do mine?
I'm going to vent for a second.
So, this lovely Monday morning, I've already had TWO people decide that what I say has no merit and they are going to do what they want to do or what THEY think is best.
Which had me in one of our studios, having a temper tantrum to my best friend, because I'm sick of it.
I don't go around to everyone and tell them how to do their jobs, yet many people find it perfectly acceptable to tell me how to do mine.
We should give away this.
We should promote that.
This contest sucks.
Who cares about that? Why are we wasting our airtime on it?
You should tell the promoter to give us better tickets.
We need to be doing this better.
We could do that better.
My predecessor was older (in her 50s) and had been doing the job for almost 20 years. She also stomped around the building like a bulldog at least once a day because someone would piss her off. She'd yell and cuss and people were afraid of her temper.
I don't like stomping. It's bad on the knees.
I try really hard not to yell or cuss. Though, I did this morning to my best friend.
So, because I do neither of the above on a regular basis, I'm seen as a doormat who doesn't know how to do her job.
I'm not perfect at my job, but I do know how to do it.
More importantly, I'm good at it.
Yet, people around my building seem to think otherwise.
I'm really over it.
Ideas or constructive criticism are welcome, but telling me what to do is not. Especially when I don't go around telling everyone else what they do wrong.
I need a vacation.
