Boss that is. I am SOOOOO tired of him treating me like I'm his whipping boy and getting mad at a sec's notice for no good reason then spewing insults and belittling statements toward me and twisting what I said and did beyond belief to justify it. I know it's temporary- it's the only thing keeping me being able to tolerate it at all. I don't know if things will even hold out the 2-3 mos to find out if this clearance app goes thru- tension is so abundant- but if it does, things will change then one way or another. If mine doesn't go thru, I'll be facing unemployment again. If it does, I'll be more in a position to get a job- a better one- and you're darn right I'll be bombarding people to get one! LOL!! And we were asked to fill out an anonymous survey for the client themselves yesterday afternoon- not just us contract employees but about 200 people that are in the client's agency, work directly for them, plus people contracted out to them. It was only online and handled in a way where only the 3 upper people in the agency could ever see it. No names were attached but it asked enough questions that I would be the only one who could have met my description out of those people (gender, race, age group, position). After some questions about whether or not we've seen any discrimination of various types and if we think all around us are meeting overall objectives and so forth, it asked a series of questions about our individual supervisor. Answering hinestly of course, mine didn't exactly get glowing results from me. Coincidental or not, in the 4 mos I've been there this is the first day I've seen the head person from the agency walk by and speak to my boss. The head person walked by three times after the third in charge came by and the last time, was acoompanied by the second in charge as well. They told him they'd love to learn more about this place he owns in town and said something to the effect that they might be stopping by sometime to talk more to him about it. Then I remembered that when I was in the military, we occasionally got "surveys" like that and they weren't always just ignored and tossed aside. People sometimes get interviewed very privately, until the situation was remedied- one way or another. This might just have been coincidence though. All I know is there is a feeling that something's about to give, or break one, in the air.
