This is a subject I am trying not to be jealous or petty about. Fairness ,and equality in the work place. Favoritism does exist. Some people are more fav than others. That is reality. I was off work ,sick for nearly 3 months. When I got back to work I was aproached to donate to some cards and gifts for others who were off sick for only 3 weeks. I was taken aback at first. I did not get a card, nor a gift saying that I was missed. Why do some people matter and not others. I worked this through in my mind. Was it because my illness is not as life threatening as others? Or was it because I am not a favorite in the eyes of my boss? I don't know.? I think it is the latter. I may not be important to my collegues, but in the eyes of the lovely cadets that I clean for , I matter very much. All I have heard from them is praise, since I have returned to work. They are so happy , and notice that I make their lives easier by what I do for them. That is all that matters. After all, if it wasn't for the cadets, I would not have a job. I must remind myself that I must do my job for God and not for men. Then things in my mind would be far easier. But my human mind tells me that I must work to please my boss. I long to hear praise from my supervisor. I'm afraid that will never happen. My supervisor is such a ditts. Sorry to say but it is the truth. So I will have to hang on to the praises of the cadets and know that I am doing a good job. I will never hear it from my supervisors, that's for sure.
