Sorry to come venting ladies, but I am so angry and annoyed with my boss right now. In the past (I've been with the company for 4 years) she gave two other employees, who were her pets, 3 month half-pay maternity leave packages. I didn't get that or anything for that matter with my son as I was only a contractor at that time.
So, now that I'm expecting #2, I asked her point blank if she was going to give me the same benefit that she gave them. I'm a seniored employee, have been with the company the third longest out of all the 15 employees, and have brought in new business. I really feel like I deserve this minimally!
I asked her this 2 1/2 weeks ago, and she just keeps draggiing her feet about it. Just excuse after excuse about "I need to talk to so and so" "sorry been so busy with this and that." Clearly I'm not a priority in her eyes.
The last time I brought it up to her was last Friday and she said she wasn't going to wait for Claire to get back from vacation. Not such a bad deal as I know Claire will advocate for me. So they had a meeting yesterday and she didn't even bring it up to Claire! I'm just so so very livid right now I'm actually shaking while I type this message (not to mention crying, damn hormones). I'm about to email her and bring it up again, since I'm off tomorrow, but trying to find a calm way to say something to her when I really want to call her all sorts of terrible names. She has to know I am on my way out after the baby comes if she doesn't treat me right, but I'm finding this so hard to deal with right now.
Sorry for the vent ladies, but thanks for letting me do it and if you read this far, I'll take any advice or suggestions you have for me.
