Scion of the McKeesport Becks.

« on: May 24, 2013, 11:40:42 AM »

I usually post here asking for prayers for friends and relatives who need them.  Rarely do I ask for myself.

I've spent the last week in quite a misanthropic mood, much moreso than usual, and learned today that one of my co-workers (who I also recently learned is talking about me behind my back to our boss, but that's another issue) is being sent out to our profession's annual convention in Seattle and she "really doesn't want to go" but is going anyways.  She has complained all morning about scheduling and being away from home and whatnot.  A few years ago, I paid out of pocket some because I really wanted to attend and I knew the firm was not in a financial position to pay for my trip (due to our wholesale move to a new building); I arranged to stay with friends and paid for my own meals.  If she doesn't want to go, she should have passed the opportunity on to either myself or our other co-worker, who has never been to an AALL convention.

I rarely let "office politics" affect me, but I'm livid right now.  I know this is just the product of a build up of lots of little things over time and I just don't want to explode on my co-workers or, worse yet, unsuspecting and innocent people.

Lord, have mercy and grant Schultz peace of mind and patience to deal with everything on his plate.

Be patient.  In time these things work themselves out.

You're a good man, Schultz, and that's why you're suffering. Hang in there, even though you feel like lashing out - the good Lord has His ways.  Smiley
