Apparently, research has discovered that 11am on a Tuesday is the most stressful time of the working week. Well it certainly happened today, I got frustrated about a misunderstanding/lack of communication and my boss blew his pressure valve. We ended up in another all-day technical meeting today, trying to sort out issues. It's been a very stressful couple of months for him and I guess I just punctured the balloon. Ended up with me bawling my eyes out and having half an hour's time-out cup of tea and a chat with one of the girls, and the boss and I apologising to each other for being insensitive. I can't really handle stress or conflict well at the moment. In fact I can't handle it at all.
So, that wasn't good, but within an hour it was done, dusted and out of the way and we got on with our discussions and work as normal. No sulking in sight, that's for sure.
Sometimes just when I think I'm getting more back to normal reactions to things, something comes along and slaps me in the face again.
I think Kristi will be coming to all my meetings in future.
