Can someone please explain to me how even though we have hired three new people (to which process I have dedicated the last three months of my life, plus continuing time on payroll and other things) I am still the one being asked to call the grocery store, go down and tell the office errand boy what we need him to pick up, and every other little tidbit of footwork?
A few reasons why I shouldn’t be the one doing these things:
1- I don’t speak Arabic. The three new girls do. The office boy/grocery store does not speak English.
2- I am the (at the last count) Manager of Marketing, Human Resources, AND Administration, plus I function as secretary and all around butt-monkey.
3- From my first day I was expected to do a ton of shiz. We have three employees sitting around on their “training period” (of which I never had training OR a training period) so basically they are doing nothing while I have a huge list of things to do. Where was my training period?
From here on out I am going to start delegating and woe to the boss who complains that I’m giving work to them. Woe, woe, and some more woe. I’m very tired of this.
Tired of Egypt. Tired of Arabic and not speaking it. Tired of living here, and getting very tired of this job.
I’m a manager, right?
