I feel like i'm stuck where i am to be honest Sluffy. I'm at the top of my pay scale and have been for years and don't want a promotion as i'm stressed enough as it is. The job is handy for home and for me picking up my youngest but other than that i hate it.

I have thought about leaving but i wouldn't get the same money anywhere else and would mean massive changes at home so i do feel stuck. The job is very stressful and only this morning i lost my temper in a team meeting as my so-called managers were being their usual hopeless selves.

KP's looking for someone to fill in for him for 29 days in August.

A bit of fresh air will do you good.

And what would you have to 'fill in'?

Sorry, I've been out all day since I posted to you.

I feel sorry for you feeling trapped but can understand with your personal circumstances that it also makes sense to stay too.

The best thing I can suggest is to take whatever control of your job you can - if you can delegate work then do so, don't feel the need to do everything yourself - others will sit back and let you.

Similarly if you can say 'no', then say it - and mean it!

If your boss 'asks' you to do something extra - tell him you can't. your overstretched as it is.  If your staff wants a favour - say next week off - and you really can't manage without them that week, then tell them no (and explain your reasons).

You don't need to turn all bolshie or anything, but just stand your ground when you know you are in the right.

Also - and this is very important - take your leave - everyone needs a break to recharge themselves for the good of their health (mentally and physically) and it also shows them back at work how much you actually do, when they have to cover for you.

Hope there's something in there that may help you a little bit.

Cricket was good and the dismissal of Nicholls was unbelievable

Cheers Sluffy, my main issue is that my bosses just delegate a lot of the work they receive down to me. I was joking with someone in my office the other day as they contacted one of my bosses for help with something and i said you may as well cut out the middle man and send it to me. He did send it to my boss and guess what landed in my email the day after?  Rolling Eyes

I know the feeling. I was frequently prevailed upon to do work that wasn't a part of my remit.
But I'm a nice guy, and was always ready to help.
To cut a long story short, they took me for granted, so when a major bit of business was coming down the pipeline, I waited patiently for the announcement before giving them notice.
I watched with some satisfaction as a lot of people started scrambling to get their heads around jobs they should have been doing in the first place.
Maybe I'm not so nice after all.

On that note, back in the day I'd decided to do a part time MBA so I needed a 9-5 job and ended up managing teams of business advisers for Business Link. Some bright spark at the DTI thought it was a good idea to introduce a quick "referral system" ostensibly to ensure that enquiries could be immediately passed on by advisers to colleagues who had specialisms in each particular field. Turns out one bloke in Wales was sacked after it was discovered that he'd "referred" every single enquiry for the previous two years and hadn't actually done a single day's work himself. Smile

England dropping catches and New Zealand piling on the runs. They're going to run up a cricket score at this rate....

England 17 for 3. Appalling.

Make that 21 for 4. Embarrassing. As Root trudges off, in comes the captain to try to put a shine of respectability into the scoreline.

Sir Johnnie Bairstowe to the rescue again. What a man. Jamie Overton also excellent with an untroubled and mature 89no on test debut. If we could just teach our top 3 how to bat we might become a formidable side once again.

Scores level and England still have 3 wickets in hand.
What a comeback!
So sorry for Overton - 97 on his test debut.
It's going to be interesting this afternoon as NZ need to finish off the tail but Bairstow and Broad are swinging and with a bit of luck can build a decent first innings lead.

We were 55 for 6 - currently 331 for 7.

Kiwis must be absolutely gutted.
