I think I will remain mute on this subject. I want to keep my blood pressure down.

OT- had to VENT!!!! ugh so tired of work drama- family business no less. My boss' wife has inserted herself into things that fall under me (director of marketing) and the President (sales) and has been using the poor sales support woman as a go between to do stuff that isn't her job. THe sales support woman won't tell her no, she fears for her job of course and they are friends. So things are going on in marketing i don't know about. the new marketing coordinator is being basically shut out by the wife- not allowed to do anything. it's a mess. The president (sales) and my boss (CEO/owner) are brothers- the COO is their brother too. We agreed a way to function yesterday and the wife agreed, then today, she went back to the old ways, going around the marketing coordinator and not letting her do her job.

I finally spoke up. I've only been here 6 months, but the poor sales support woman was having to do crap that isn't her job and she won't speak up for herself, so i did. I am sure the boss' wife is pissed at me now. But it is what is best for the business. I don't want to rattle cages, but at the same time, i get yelled at by the Presidnet if i don't speak up, but fear the CEO (my boss) being pissed at me if i do, since it is his wife (she works from home and is supposed to only book hotels for travel, but is doing much more than that lately). Then the fact that they are brothers makes it worse, because they will argue it out. anyhow- it is a mess. i am not an aggressive person, i like to lay low, be the nice one that doesn't say much. but i just had to say something- i was tired of the drama. I wonder what the boss' wife will say to me now. she is an intimidating woman anyhow.

oh well, i think i did the right thing, speaking up for someone that couldn't/wouldn't say anything. I am sure I'll get reamed in some fashion for doing what is the right thing. oh well- it's just a job, not like we are doing surgery or sending rockets to the moon where someone might die , i am going to try and not stress too much about it.

Often doing what's right is not the same as doing what's easy.
