Apologies for posting this here, but I like the camaraderie on this site. Long story, short I am fed up at work and am need of a vacation.
Lately at work I feel I am the one who has to do the majority of the work - my team consists of 5 people (Including my boss). It appears anytime there is a new project, the main responsibilites are given to me. For the past 3 months there has not been a break in the action. It is irritating because certain members of my team are clearly not pulling their weight when they could be helping. I have one coworker who says on Friday's "Im outta here I put in my 40." Which is funny to say because we're salary! This coworker acts as if she still is hourly, leaving precisely at 330 everyday, even when we are in the middle of something. I am starting to feel burned out because I can't see the finish line. Finish line for is a week off this summer. Which leads me to my next point.
I asked off for next week a month ago. Never got a firm acceptance or denial. I politely asked my boss a few weeks ago what is the status and she really didnt committ to anything, but sounded like she was leaning towards saying no. The problem with the week I asked for is when these projects will be functional. I had no idea knowing this when I asked off so I understand if thats the reason. What bothers me the most is, that she is taking off this Friday and Monday! The very same monday I requested off for a month ago! She pretty much arranged these days off at the last minute which is also irritating.
Granted, I just got off of a 4 day weekend (My first real time off in over a year) and I realized how much i enjoy spending time with my family. At this point, I feel I never will get my week off this summer. My colitis isnt helping matters with my lack of sleep either. Sorry for the disjointed rant.
