I had all that I can take today. When I first took this job, we were starting on a new computer system. So I stayed every night, plus came in on weekends to get the patients into the computer. Once that was done, we had a physical therapy assistant that came in at nights and wouldn’t stay by herself. So I had to stay every night with her. For the first year of this job, I worked 60+ hours per week while only getting paid for 40. I was reassured by the doctor that I would be taken care of. Lets not forget all the nights that I stayed late because the doctor didn’t finish on time. In the past 2 years, I have not gotten a raise nor been allowed to take my vacation. Everyone else in the office gets raises an vacations with no problems. In fact, one of the girls just got a raise that brings her to only 50 cents less then me and I am the office manager.
The doctor is frequently verbally abusive to the female employees. He has even gone as far as thrown a chart at Joan. When the doctor is in the office, we are not allowed to take lunch breaks. We can get like 5-10 minutes to eat our lunch and we are supposed to run back to the front.
Today, the doctor was yelling at me in front of a bunch of people saying that I wasn’t doing what he had told me. I had called this other office on a daily basis. So I took him outside the office. I told him that I was leaving. He said he didn’t care. We all knew that his girlfriend had been trying to get my job for awhile. The others are upset that I am leaving. They don’t want me to go because they know what it is going to be like once I am gone and his girlfriend is manager.
I need a job!!! I know it was stupid of me to quit with no job lined up, but I can’t take this shit anymore. They fucked my niece over. They are constantly fucking me over. This place is the pits.
Everyone keep your fingers crossed that Ken hires me. He said he will talk to me about a job. I hope he wasn’t just blowing smoke. I have such a headache today. I was sitting here at my desk crying when Antonio came here today. I felt like a complete idiot letting him see me cry. I just couldn’t help it. It just hurts to know that I have given up so much for this office to only be told that it really doesn’t matter if I stay or not.
Marshall is also keeping an eye out for a job for me. At least I know that a few people care.
I also had the pleasure of confronting Diego today. He says that he didn’t really want anything romantic. He just figured that we would hang out. Ummm…. That isn’t what he had said to me before. Geesh!! I have had the day from hell!! I just want to go home and hide under the covers.
