Thanks for listening. To answer Li, I am on a contract. I know we each have to give the other some kind of notice, I want to say 30 days but do not remember right off the top of my head.
Things were going really well for a long time. It seemed I could not do anything wrong. Then things started changing. Apparently he (the owner) got comfortable with me and he would get upset and yell. I have witnessed this between him and his wife. She was protective of me. I could talk to her or e-mail her and things seemed better. Now she is starting to act like him at times. She used to apologize when she got upset with me. She does not do that anymore. I understand she is under alot of stress with her job, taking care of her mother and dealing with the apts. I believe she has some health issues but I do not know what they are.
When things were going really well, she was telling me what a great job I was doing, and I could talk to her about anything. I also suffer from ADHD and anxiety. When others yell at me and say things such as 'you are not using your brain' ect. I get upset. When they ask a question I get flustered. I keep them up to date with everything that goes on. Sure, I could have said I did not know those people had a dog, but I told them.
As far as the maintenance guy goes, I had not thought of the posibility that he may have someone he wants in that position. That could be. However, I think he knows that I have a friendship with the owners. I think he is a control freak. He gets upset if something happens and he does not know about it. He tells me he thinks the three of us (the owners and me) are crazy because of the way they want things done. I have never done this type of work before so I have nothing to compare with. Sure, I don't agree with everything they do. But that is going to happen with any job. I believe the maintenance guy believes he is in charge out here. I have heard from tenants that he has told them he runs the place. I do what the owners tell me to do but if he disagree's he tells me and sometimes gets upset. He is the best maintenance guy we have had since I have been here. He gets things done. The last one we had lasted about 6 months and was a total disaster. The one before was really nice but an older gentleman but got to things when he felt like it.
I want more than anything for things to be the way it was. If I make a mistake, I want to know but not be yelled at. I have my "bad" times and I know I have to work extra hard then. I just can't handle being yelled at and things said that accomplish nothing.
