Nagging

Today has been one very stressful day for me. Dragon Lady and my supervisor are both tag-teaming me with emails that are to cause trouble for me. Here's an example of one:

Trish,

I received this email from Wimp and I don't see where you copied Dragon Lady or me on the original communication that you sent to Wimp and Nice Guy regarding Employee A's FMLA Notification. Your instructions include a requirement that you copy Dragon Lady and me when you forward. Please explain.

I have no idea how to reply to this email. It has been sitting in my inbox for a couple hours. The other email from her is similar and the email from Dragon Lady is asking why I never replied to an email from JUNE although the work itself was done, no email was sent.

In both cases the work was done on time and correct but they want to gripe about a damn email. I'm just mad. I work with the pettiest bit$#es on earth. I am almost convinced I am changing my last day to sooner than I originally planned. I don' t know how much more I can take from them before I let them know how I really feel.

girl, i had a supervisor like that. the best thing you can do is just send the stinking email, even if you don't see the point. its much easier than listending to harrassing emails.

YW- You're right, but I didn't not send the email to be spiteful, I just made a mistake but they want to stone me for not sending the emails. I know that at some point they will mention me not replying to their emails checking me.

I would suggest that you tell DragonLady and Supervisor exactly what you told us here. Including the I don't know how to respond to this part.

Sounds like a set up of some sort. Trying to start a paper trail for your non adhereance to some minor rules.

Or you can resend the email about the FMLA employee and then cc them. Add the line "minor oversight" Just do this to each email she's asking about. Even the one from June and explain to her how the work was completed. No emotion in the emails. As few words as possible.

Act oblivious.

Buttahfly-That's the best advice I've gotten on this. Thanks ALOT! I agree that they are setting me up via emails. I resent one stating that although I sent it to the correct managers that I neglected to copy DragonLady and my Sup. I spoke with my union rep Friday at the end of the day and we have plans to meet Thursday.
