Before I went on vacation (which is why I haven't posted in so long) one of my managers took me aside and said "We need to have a meeting, so you should call the Union Rep."

I asked him what it was about and he said, "Don't worry. It's not a medication error." Ummm.... okay. I didn't ask what it's *not* Sigh. I ask for a little more information and he says that someone sent him an email about my behaviour. I'm very confused at this point. I have never had a patient seem to dislike me, and I am friendly and professional with my coworkers.

He says that I should try to arrange the meeting for before I leave. Hah. I have work every single day before leaving, and my flight the day I leave is at ass o'clock in the morning.

So I put it off.

I got back yesterday, and the other manager says, "We need to have a meeting about your attitude and behaviour. We need to have a heart-to-heart." Why does a heart-to-heart require a Union Rep? So I call the Union Girl and leave her a message.

I haven't gotten confirmation yet that she's coming. We're supposed to meet at 1515, so I have to call her again on my way in.

I've never had to deal with "office politics" before. I've never had anyone not like me enough to talk to a manager about it.

I've asked around a bit to see if anyone's overheard something. I wish I knew who it was and what s/he said. It's not so much that i want to confront the person, but it'd help me analyze my own shortcomings and improve on them.



  1. Kim! I hope everything works out okay for ya! I believe ur attitude is fine. 335 always go after the wrong people. they need to go after some of the others who don't know how to be a nurse!! Keep ur head up!

  2. Is it possible that somebody knows about and is unhappy with your blog?

  3. It's entirely possible my blog has made it onto the radar. As far as I know, not too many people know about it beyond those I've specifically told.

    But it would be nice if people didn't mention my actual name in comments. I'm trying to stay as anonymous as possible lol.

    And, unfortunately for people who might not like what I say here, I'm not naming names, and I have the right to say what's on my mind. Thank god. Because if I didn't, I'd probably explode.
