vent...pet peeve

  1. 0
    This is just more of a vent because I feel pretty alone right now. I am at work, the medical records temp desk job, bored as usual. That part is ok. I will cont to pay for what I have done and I actually don't mind the break. I was just reminded of pet peeves I have when starting a new job. I remember when I was orienting a new nurse in the er, I would always be sure to include the little things too like things about breaks or bringing snacks or where is a good place to park because I remember not learning these things and I had to find out later or the hard way. So on my first day 4 weeks ago, I was kinda handed off to another supervisor and she showed me the basics but didn't bother to add the little things that most people like to know. I just found out there is a break room last week. I wouldn't use it anyways and I don't even think my badge will swipe in there but still...and then today she is getting a new employee set up in the cube behind me and tells her--oh, there is a holiday lunch at 1130 if you want I can come and get you and show you where it is. are you serious? and then i was thinking she might see me and tell me about it but maybe she figures I already know--which I didn't. I don't even know why i care because I wouldn't go anyways but still....grrr. I am not an outgoing person and I am the youngest one here so I am not really talking to anyone except to say hello and on lunch I go to the library to read my book. I have noticed that many people here are friendly and helpful if I have a question but I don't know why but it bothers but I feel like I don't belong because I am a temp--which is also the good news that this is not my permanent home Thanks for listening. I just needed to get it out.

    [QUOTE=SassyErRn;3283934]This is just more of a vent because I feel pretty alone right now.

It's great that you have always made an effort to help out other newbies.Maybe this time you have to put yourself out there more. Don't go to the library and read at your lunch-go join your co-workers.When I have worked with people that go off on their own at breaks or sit at the table with everyone else but read a book I just assumed that they don't want to be part of the group because that is the signal I am receiving. Maybe you are sending a "I want to be left alone" signal yourself?

    Everyone takes their breaks at different times so it's not like we all go to break at noon and they see me off is a differnt direction. I see what you are saying though. I just have a hard time is social situations, esp with people I don't know. I am terrible at conversation:bowingpur I guess I don't mind so much because of the different times people take their breaks and I would rather have time to myself, that's just how I am. I guess I am just saying that it's weird to not be part of a team like I was with bed-side nursing. Thanks for the reply.

    I am too-but people love to talk about themselves-that's the greatest way to start a conversation.BUT you then have to practice looking interested....
