So angry with something at work
So last week I had my 12 week scan, some people at work knew I was PG but it was not common. Following my scan I have said I am happy for everyone to know...
I work with one particular client for much of my time at work, to some degree it is more like I work for thier business than the one I do. It has taken alot of hard work (the cient is a difficult one to say the last) but I have managed to build some great rapport with them and feel I have really earned their professional respect.
I asked my boss about letting them know my news. I know it will cause a reaction when they know I am not going to be around for a while, so did not want to tell them without other key colleagues knowing that was the case, getting ready for the chain of calls. Anyway, my boss simply said I must not tell them and we will try and hild that off unitl at least June.
WTF!??!!?? I am very uncomfortable with not being open and truthful, about anything at all, and he knows that (we often disagree about this.) I feel like I am lying and dont want to do that. Also, what the hell am I going to look like come June when they are informed (I have already told my boss that when they are told they are also to be advised that I was ordered to keep it a secret from them, but I will look like an idiot to them still) ....
This client adds a lot of pressure to my life, they are very demanding and to meet there needs I often do above and beyond, working at hours I am not obliged to (as I am sure we all do with our jobs) .... I was really looking froward to them knowing I was PG and undoubtedly expecting less from me/understanding why I was stepping back. Now they are just going to think my standards have slipped.
I am so so so so p'd off.
I have a great relationship with the client and think they would be happy for me. Also as a business this is somethign they have to account for with their staff, its the way of the world.
