Sometimes you just have to throw your hands up and say “Fuck It”! This week I had to do that! When you try to hard to do something and keep getting met with a brick wall, you just have to say “Fuck It”.
In these past few weeks of training for my new title, I was ‘supposed’ to be training folks to do the things I was previously doing and will no longer be doing. All that while learning my new job. Fun right? Nah, I thought it would be fought with some issues. But you can force someone to learn something they are so hell bent on not learning. You would think my work was Rocket Science or something.
At one point, I was told “I’m doing my job and yours.” I wanted so badly to say, no it’s your job now. But I didn’t, I got so frustrated I bitched about it all yesterday. I spoke with my boss and explain the situation so I can cover my ass. Today, I walked into work like if you wanna learn I’m here, if not that’s cool too. Needless to say, I spent the bulk of my day learning my new job.
I’m a faster learner and if I don’t understand I will ask questions. My new unit seems pleased with my ability to learn efficiently and effectively. That is great for me, I see more promotions in my future.
I wrote this post to vent but help someone, if they are experiencing the same as me. I know its nothing new. But know that as long as you attempted to do your job, you can’t help it if those who are put in places to learn don’t want to learn. At that point the manager should be made aware and you move on. Unless instructed otherwise.
