I've had the displeasure of working with individuals who will take advantage of everyone, but the latest Dip shenanigans take the cake. We have been told we have to support a client event over 3 separate weekends (two in a row - coming up soon). As in round the clock being online , at the ready, even if they do not need us. We are hourly, so the OT has been approved. Dip took it upon herself to write up a schedule for all weekends. All the same hours, with me during the day for 6 Saturday and Sunday combos. I never agreed to that schedule. I was so irate today, scheduled an overdue meeting with boss. I refrained from responding to her, but who in the hell does she think she is? I typically avoid conflict, but no, I'm not standing for this crap. Granted, I will be the one they reach out to, as Dip can barely log into any system. She's proven her inadequacies many times, and I even said now honestly, who are they going to call? She's not been involved even though she protested when meetings initially excluded her, then came into meetings with a pad of small sticky notes (everyone else had notebooks or binders). She eventually stopped going. It was all about how she wasn't on the invite.
I've also been working on another project, automating some new way to get tasks done. She needed something from me right then and there, even though she didn't need it for another week or more. I said fine, let me drop everything for you. She backed off big time. I told her how to get the data, and was asked is it hard? No, it's something you should know already! I just had zero time for it. I then said I had to do 3 or 4 other things, plus this automation thing was only updating one line, not multiple. Her response, "great so now we'll have something that only works off and on". I wanted to smack her. I'd asked her and another person to log into this new system and test some I already had done. She just logged in today. 5 months later. She then told me she'd need to be trained. I got one document with codes, and was told have at it. Yeah, don't expect me to spoon feed you. I tried to calm myself down and said no, I'm only marking those as completed or ok, once they totally work. I really should have said, fine, I'm done working on it. Since you know how it should work, you can finish all this crap. I'm going to write it all down for boss. Even the PM handling all of the scheduling was like this is for every day? He knew it was beyond wrong. His team is alternating. Dip always likes the early hours so she can do stuff with her hubby - who works in a completely different metro area, so he's gone for an entire week at a time. She was asked, why don't you move there? Nope, not doing it, he can just drive it. (We're talking a 3 to 4 hour drive each way). So everyone should just bend to what she wants. I wrote so many emails to her today, then deleted, wanting to think over my response. I am so upset with her crap, that I've been working remotely a LOT. I might need bail money.
