"Poll question: Work Scenario - What you doing???"


  

          

Let's say you are an assistant and you work for/under 5 people. You have a disagreement with one of them, where they falsely accuse you of being disrespectful, report it to the office manager, and are rude and disrespectful to you. The individual you work for isn't a manager or anyone special...ie a lawyer/assistant relationship. So while you work for him, he is not 'your boss'.

The office manager tells you that they don't believe you were being disrespectful, and that they will 'talk' with them about it, but you feel they are just doing damage control on both sides.

You continue to work for this individual, but the matter is never bought up again. The individual tries to be extra nice to you, but you are keeping it strictly business.

Fast forward to xmas time(about 1 month later) and as your office custom, all of the people you work for are giving you individual gifts...money/gift certificates. He gives you something that isn't make or break but something you def could use...lets say around $150.

What you doing?



For clarification purposes, lets say the disrespect he showed you was by constantly interrupting you while you were trying to explain yourself, stating that he is your superior and you have to do whatever he tells you, and finally interrupting you one last time, declaring that the conversation was over.

the attorneys usually give one gift as a group but me and another assistant was talking about the situation and we disagreed on what we'd do if they did give gifts individually.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

if it's gonna cause workplace beef that's gonna adversely affect my career, i'll fake my way through it.

outside of work, if i don't fool with you i won't act like i do. but when i'm getting paid to put up with your clown ass, i wear the mask that grins & lies...
