I’ve being feeling a lot more frustrated at work. My boss again tells me I need to find answers myself before asking my co-workers for help, and today my co-worker tells me that there are still issues with a piece of code I’ve written for the twelfth time.
My coworkers are pretty hard to get along with. They tell my boss that I’ve already asked the question before. My boss suggested that I keep a log of the questions I ask and answers I receive from my coworkers. Even though I’ve been keeping a log, my boss keeps telling me that I need to learn to look in other places first before asking my co-workers questions. I told my boss that I do use resources such as x and y prior to asking my coworkers a question but the answers to the questions I have aren’t written down anywhere. Additionally, my coworkers (as written in their job description) are supposed to create and provide training for the entry and associate level staff. My boss told me that training material is being created but my coworkers are too busy right now to work on it. I also told my boss that I’m hesitant to reach out to my co-workers since every time I do, we have a meeting about me needing to look at other resources prior to asking them questions.
My co-worker, who reviews my code, keeps bringing up new things that are wrong every time it’s reviewed. Regardless of the number of meetings I’ve had with the coworker about what I need to make sure is included in the code, there’s always something new that I wasn’t aware of. I honestly don’t want to work on the code anymore, I’m running out of patience and ways to rewrite the code.
I am ready to quit. It’s like I’m the only one really putting forth effort in resolving the problems I have with my coworkers. Its upsetting that there hasn’t been a solution to either of these two problems.
I want these two problems solved already. I am having a hard time finishing the other tasks at work and at home.
C: Boss tells me I need to find answers myself before asking my co-workers for help
T: He keeps bringing this up
A: I freeze. I don’t pay attention to what boss says. I give a copy of log to Boss.
R: I keep bringing up frustration
C: Co-worker tells me that there are still issues with a piece of code I’ve written for the twelfth time. Boss is cc’d on email
T: I really thought there wasn’t anything else that needed to be included.
A: I don’t work on rewriting the code. I don’t follow calendar. I surf the web.
R: ? ( any suggestions)
What should I do next? Right now I’m also done feeling curious since the results of both models haven’t changed.
