Help Wanted

Here is the situation. I think I do my job very well and I have it down to a science. I could do it with my eyes closed. That's how down pack I know my job. Well, my boss came to me and said that she think I needed help with my job. She said that she thinks we need a part time person in the evenings after I leave to help out with this and that. I don't mean to sound ungrateful but I really don't need help with what I do. Even with the jobs that seem difficult, I've created a system where it's really not so difficult and it works for me. She says that with me in school, that she doesn't want me to get too bogged down where I can't focus on my school work. I am trying to understand where she is coming from. My hours will not be cut and my check will still be the same but if I pass off work for someone else to do, then I won't have nothing to do.

I'm sure many of you are probably saying that you would love extra help doing what it is you do. It's not that I wouldn't mind extra help....if there was something for the other person to do. I have a routine going and it works. I'm saying now I have to pass off some of my work to someone else and then still be productive all day. I am appreciative of what my boss is trying to do by helping me try to succeed in classes but I hope someone gets what I'm trying to say without sounding like I am unappreciative because I'm really not.

Lovingly yours,

  1. Hmmm...I always read between the lines. In other words, your boss was saying, "Barbara, I don't want your school work to interfere with your job. If you slack up, you WILL BE FIRED!"
