The Question Club
Ok I am having work drama it's a verrry long story(if any of you are on my Friends list you know what I mean) so this is a two part question|
1) I have a regular asst manager at work and this new person who is there for one month training to be a supervisor at a branch store. (we do not have a Manager due to our old one quitting) so my asst manager and some of the employees(actually almost all of them) do not like the training supervisor.
She has made some mistakes and she has an abrupt personality and siad stuff to piss a couple people off--but I have gotten to know her and she is not a bad person, she can be relaly nice and genereous.
I like my asst manager and I like the new person. But the new sup told me some stuff and her opinions on people at work(nothing too horrible but she did say stuff about people that if it was repeated would piss them off--it was nothing that was horribly upsetting just stuff you wouldnt want to repeat)
my asst manger also has said stuff about the supervisor(again nothing horrid--just making it clear she does not like her)
everyone is on the side of my asst manager except me and one other girl(who is pretty much neutral) I'm neutral too as I like both of them--
the other day I went out to dinner and hung ot with the supervisor--we closed and were hungry and she invited me,. We barely talked about work at all--but do you think it was ok for me to do so? I dont want to piss off the people I work with but I said nothing to her about what they said, we barely talked about work at all and I am not going to "pick a side" in this stupid Middle school crap.
this leads me to my other question. IT's kind of sad that a visiting training supervisor is the one who has tried to talk to me and get to know me and invitd me to hang out after work/outside of work. Now I have gotten to know the other emplyeees well and they do know stuff about me and we talk and get along great at work but I have never once been invited to do anyhthing outside of work.
I know that there are peole who do hang out too--but they never ask me. HOw Do I make it clear(without looking like a needy, clingy, ass kisser) that i'd like to at least be asked to do things or to get to know people better.
I was thinking of coming up with somethng to do but I have no ideas other than a movie--so any ideas.
btw I have really good self esteem and a great set of friends and in my other jobs i've been very good friends and hung out with other fellow workers, but not at this one. I dont know if they think since I work 2 jobs that I have no time to do anything or since I (unlike almost everyone else) dont waste my time gossiping that I wouldnt want too or what.
