i felt exploited at work this week. my boss is not very good when it comes to writing. i am not a good writer but so far i'm the best in the team.
anyway, they wanted to nominate a project for the upcoming project management awards and they had to come up with a write up for the project. i was extremely busy because it was a peak season at work but they asked for my help and i did.
i had nothing to gain from that write up. my name would not even see the light of day in that nomination. if ever the project wins, i will not receive an award because i am not one of the project managers. i am just a member of the project team. but because i always strive for excellence i came up with the best write up as i possibly can. i was not a project manager so there were details that i was not aware of so i felt that i could have come up with a better write up than i did but that's beside the point.
the point is, i am always there. i always help out. i always contribute more than what is expected. i always deliver excellent results. i always have good ideas. BUT i don't think i am given what i deserve. work sucks. i freakin' hate it.
