Parental Misguidance

| Working | July 25, 2015

(I have been the church secretary for almost five years at this point. The church has an in-house day care, which uses the same main entrance as the church office.)

Council Member: “We’ve decided that you’re going to be responsible for monitoring the parents when they come into the day care.”

Me: “What? That’s not my job.”

Council Member: “It is now. Parents are very concerned about their children’s safety, so we’re going to start locking the door and you will have to let people in when they come.”

Me: “I don’t know who the parents are. How am I supposed to know who I’m letting in the building?”

Council Member: “That’s true.”

Me: “Not to mention, my job takes me all over this building. Sometimes I’m in the supply room, or up in the sanctuary. I’m not always sitting here.”

Council Member: “Also true.”

Me: “Furthermore, I was never hired to be a security guard. This is not normal secretary work.”

Council Member: “Yes, you’re right about all this.”

Me: “And?”

Council Member: “And you’re going to do it anyway.”

(I was also written up for objecting. After two months of the headaches, I left. Someone later let it slip to me that they did this on purpose to force me to quit.)
