Owning Up To Your Own Job

| Working | March 27, 2015

(We have lost a few people recently, meaning more work for everyone. I have taken on running a department on top of my full-time job.)

Boss: “[My Name], where are you with [main task]?”

Me: “Well, to be honest I’m getting a bit behind.”

Boss: “What?! Why?”

Me: “Well I’m running a whole department now.”

Boss: “That doesn’t take long. Just get [Worker] to do it.”

Me: “You want me to get him to manage supplier contacts? He just isn’t capable; you know that.”

Boss: “Oh, well, yes, but the rest he can do.”

Me: “Like the massively important new production line?”

Boss: “Well, no…”

Me: “Or how about—” *I list other items that can only be done by me*

Boss: “Well, no, you would have to do all that. But I still don’t see why you can’t do your main job.”

(Up to today, I still get blamed for not doing my ‘own’ job.)
