So, this past Saturday I went in to talk to my boss/father-in-law about what he said to me about my pumping. I really don’t want to get into exactly what was said, but the conversation didn’t go well. I ended up getting yelled at and was basically told to shut up and do what was asked of me and not complain.
I can’t even begin to describe how hurt and angry I am over all of this. I did get him to admit that if he ever asked that of anyone else (ie not his daughter-in-law) that they would have the right to sue him. And, even after he admitted that, he still didn’t apologize to me. Why it’s ok to discriminate against me I have no idea, and I don’t appreciate it (to put it mildly). So, the vindictive part of me decided to go back to working on an hourly basis instead of salary to prove that I’m working 40 hours a week. And the funny thing is that I’m getting more than 40 hours a week without coming in on Saturdays, and now they have to pay me overtime.
I’ve renewed my search for another job. I’m applying to several a day now, usually while I’m pumping (poetic justice?). I really hope that I get something soon. I need to get out of this office and start somewhere where I’ll be appreciated and not taken for granted.
And to offset this serious post, here’s a few adorable and lighthearted pictures of Henry
