No matter how hard I try to explain things to my fellow co-workers they just cannot get it through their thick skulls how things should work. I have explained that I will not be doing certain things because I am unable to get all the information to do it properly yet every time I end up at the workplace they seem to want me to do what I cannot do.
All they really want is for me to take over their job so they can have a rest. Even though I am just the assistant in the situation. They think I am the miracle worker and know what to do without any consultation whatsoever. “Hey David please do this.” Or “do you have any good ideas?” And expect an answer right on the spot live I know every detail at the drop of a hat.
They have no communication skills at all. They do not talk to me about anything related to the work matter. They want me to do it with no preparation at all. Yet there is a load of time to come and chat with me and talk with me, yet I sit there on a Monday all day and no one bothers to talk with me. They just come and tell me “Please do this, please do that.”
I cannot change their attitudes, I cannot change their minds. I can only react to them being blind. From now on I will just do what I need to do and that is it. I will not being dong what they want me to do nor give them ideas for what to do. I will only do what I deem necessary for those in need.
It is the only way I can stay sane. I am about half an inch away from having a mental breakdown. I cannot handle this anymore. Yet if I do not there is no help for me. As you see I am and always have been a loner. If you need help I can be there for you.
I can only ask for help when I have become a shell of my former self. Yet I will give it all for those in need. That is how I am.
So until next time Stay Safe, Stay Cool, and do not be afraid to ask for my help if and when you need it.
