I'm the assistant to an executive director at a non-profit, have been here nearly a year.

A few months ago a new volunteer started. She is BFF's with the director and I was basically told that when I want to quit to not worry about them. She will just put newvolunteer in my position because she "works like a dog".

I guess everything I do is chopped liver, but whatever.

Anyways, now I'm finding out that stuff that used to be my responsiblities are now being given to newvolunteer. Leaving me with days that I have very little to do and have to leave early (without pay).

I know newvolunteer is trying to take over my job. And I know my boss wants her to have my job since she told me as much.

So if you want to get rid of me just fire me! Simple fix. (though I would prefer that NOT happening... I need my job)

GAH. This is so frustrating.

But knowing that at least one of the board members isn't too fond of newvolunteer makes me feel a little better.

That would pi** me off so badly Nikkiluvsyou. Honestly if I were you I would start looking for other opportunities. Basically just keep this door open as long as possible until you've found something else.

It really does tick me off sometimes.

I have somewhat looked at other jobs, but I need this one right now because it's so flexible. Which is something I need especially while trying to complete my internship.

I don't mind the job I have right now, so I've thought about looking to see if there are any receptionist-type openings elsewhere. The courthouse is one I wouldn't mind, but last time I with them they were not hiring.

The Sheriff's office was hiring a receptionist, but they have since filled that. I would have LOVED that job, but it was full time and conflicted with my school schedule. A family-friend works for the Sheriff and basically gave me first dibs on the job, but it just didn't work out. Bummer.

I have contracted man flu off the other half luckily he's far more sympathetic than I was when he was sick and is trying to nurse me back to health!

Sweet Jesus people. I don't want children. That doesn't mean that my life is a dark hole of meaninglessness and sadness. I'm sorry you feel I would make a great mom and that the world would be better with my kids (yes, I was told this last night). I DON'T WANT THEM. I don't. So stop.
