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.
