So I work from home for my on-campus job during the summer. I get projects via email.
I got an email the other day at around 11am (I didn’t read the email until after 3). At about 3pm, I get a phone call from my boss asking if I got her email or not.
Okay. I understand this is my job, but it’s not my career… and I’m not ‘on-call’ all the time. Give me a chance to actually read stuff. I was in the middle of MOVING, for god’s sake.
Then last night, I got an email asking if I could throw something together by this morning. I get it done, send it to them, and I don’t even get a thanks, much less a response saying they got it alright.
I feel like they don’t appreciate the fact that I drop everything I’m doing to do stuff for them sometimes.
