I know what you're thinking guys. I've been busy the past few weeks and it sucks given this is the best time to be active on HIVE. Yup, HIVE's mooning I see that. So. You might be wondering what the hell I've been up to these days? Yes?
I was told to be polite and to smile all the time. To be friendly and not force my diabolic opinion on people. It's not happening anymore! Na ah. Not this time. Well guess what, I'm not nice anymore!
Me not being nice!
To be honest, I've just been busy at work, y'know, working from home. Work is still work it doesn't matter where but unfortunately the drama is still the same. I guess I'm not @diabolika if there's no hell.
Two months and I've already brought hell upon someone at work. Two months and I've already been taking down our director. Okay, not intentionally tho.
I mean don't get me wrong, this time I own this. I'm not gonna cry and live like a frail victim. I'm gonna stand up and fight. Yup that's right! It means that if you cross my path, then hell awaits. It means that if you're overstepping the boundaries then I might be your worst nightmare. Okay don't mind me today, this is just diabolika talking and releasing all those pent-up anger and diabolic thoughts for a Hive post.
I quit the other job 3 months ago and I'm sure you read all of that. But just when I thought hell's over, another one's waiting. Corporate life y'know, just never-ending conflict. Too many people ruling over me I guess. Anyway, so, I remember during the interview, I was asked if "I'm still single?", like what the hell is this is even legal? Is this society judging me all over again in one sitting? I let this pass. I thought I could pretend that I'm okay. And I didn't even post about this on my Hive blog because I feared that social judgment or that I would be perceived as someone who's creating another drama again.
I got hired and now I have what I've always wanted - to be able to work from home and be physically away from human beings. But the interviewer turned out to be my boss. Days went by and he went on sayin' inappropriate things to me like joking during one of our MS teams meetings that "I was hired because I'm a girl". Or that time when I called him to tell that I'm not gonna be able to move back to my city and work on site due to change in personal circumstances and he said something like "this is just like you who got pregnant, it happened". He was trying to compare something that is beyond his control as "me who got pregnant!" How disgusting! That's when I thought okay man, this has to stop.
I told all of these to the VP of our department who is the boss of my boss. He turned out to be more helpful and even encouraged me to file a case in HR. At first I was hesitant because I thought I could still put up with this without creating such unnecessary drama. But of course the VP already talked to my boss at the time and my boss initiated a "one on one " meeting with me shifting the blame and punishing me for speaking up. I didn't tell him the exact reason why I requested to be under a different leadership because I thought it would aggravate the situation. So without knowing the real reason, he just proceeded on judging me and said that he couldn't believe that someone who is "just probationary" would badmouth him to the big boss. He even told me that me speaking up is so wrong and unethical. My Gawd!
Fast-forward, I now have a HR case filed. I'm not just gonna sit here and put up with such remarks by my sexist boss. I requested the VP of my dept. to be put under a different leadership. After all that has been said and done, I just don't believe that my boss will be able to make objective decisions especially on my performance evaluations. I like my job now and I'm not gonna let anyone destroy me again. I'm just gonna be diabolical this time around!
So yeah, this is the kind of hell that I've been going through right now and I have yet to know how this is going to turn out. Like I said, I kinda like this job and it's been easy money so far. I like staying at home with Diablo (my cat) while doing things that I'm passionate about. I just hope that things will work out in my favor in the end.
