Snapped

Rate this Entry
Things have not been going well for anyone. Work has been insane. Timelines have been causing arguments in the QA office. Dealt with it yesterday, and QA had a separate meeting for it yesterday. Thought that would be the end of it. Unfortunately, the argument resumed today because one person, who wasn't in yesterday, disagreed with what happened. I tried to leave the office, to get away from the argument for a while, I came back, they were still arguing. I put on my headset and turned up the volume, but could still hear them arguing. I finally snapped.

"Enough already!" I almost shouted in my frustration.

"We're having problems...." the woman who was out yesterday started to say. I didn't give her a chance to finish.

"We all have problems! DEAL WITH IT!" The "Deal with it" was almost shouted at her. After that, I stormed out of the office, my body shaking from the stress.

Another co-worker and friend, Javier, came out to talk to me after that happened. After I calmed down a bit, I went to talk to the manager, to let him know what happened. I knew she would go to him eventually, so I wanted him to know that I had snapped at her.

When I tried to apologize to her after that, I'm not even sure if she accepted my apology. She sort of off-handedly said "ok" then quickly followed with the excuses for the argument. I let it slide, letting her make her excuses. I also apologized to the one other co-worker who was mainly involved in the argument, and he was understanding and forgiving.

Needless to say, this day is off to a wonderful start.

    I hope you can work things out with her so you aren't now fighting with her constantly. Maybe you could buy her lunch to smooth things over?

    I almost got fired for shouting at the manager at my first job back in 93...

    It'll be fine. I've already spoken to the manager.

    Man, Jason. I'm sorry you've had such a crappy day. It's amazing how little things get out of hand and turn into big snarls where even the best of us get entangled. I know it's tough, but do NOT get down on yourself over this. It was time for that argument to be over and everyone has their limits. I'm constantly amazed at the heights of yours.

    Thanks. Just a lot of stress in life, as you know. It just boiled over this time.

    Things are back to the relative "normal" insanity at work. I just try to deal with things one day at a time. Today it is one hour at a time, I guess.
