the "talk"

so my "clinical director" and I finally had the "talk"...she decided to come down...very long boring story short, they suggested to me it's time to leave cause 1. I breached some kind of code when I told the kitchen that the teachers weren't putting food in front of a kid 2. I told "clinical director" that teachers took food home 3. "its good to change social workers every four to five years...it keeps things fresh"...never mind the fact that everyones been there for minimum thirteen years...4. I'm not utilizing my talents...apparently they don't feel I'm an effective clinician...

I can only surmise that 1. they don't want to pay me...if I pass the LCSW test you better believe I will be asking for a raise 2. I'm a threat cause I "talk to much" and "don't keep secrets" 3. I don't play the game and don't follow the "chain of command"...I would follow the chain of command if folks actually came to the site...and why should I go through two folk if I can go directly to the boss...it's senseless to me...

so I'm actively seeking new employment...I will not be where I'm not wanted or where my talents aren't being "utilized"...

the teacher, who got to "speak" to me attempted to "blow me up"..."I could say things that I'm sure you don't want folk to know" she whined...I stopped her and said "the joke is I tell...folks know what I do...good and bad"..."I doubt it...I've heard things you've said about folks" she sniveled..."ask *headsupervisorsocialworker*...I don't whisper...and you better believe what I say in confidence I can to the persons face"...
I have been playing a few against the middle...I'm tired of folks not doing their job and me having to pick up the pieces...I told the group that there is a difference between liking a person socially and as a co-worker...I really like wildfire as a friend, but not as a co-worker...she does no work...
"clinical director" suggested that if daycare offered me a job I should take it...and maybe I will...cause I will raise in the ranks faster over there then in the therapeutic...it's a shame, cause I have a lot to offer the nursery...but "clinical director" will never let me raise or grow as long as she and bosslady have shit locked down...
more later...I have a housefull...ugh...and a migrane...

I'm sorry. But you were bigger than that place anyhow. Much bigger. I hope you find something quickly... and you will if it's the right thing for you... just like your apartment, like your car...

I've faith in you, Sis.
