I looked at the woman who I thought was my boss and said, "Aren't you my boss?" She smiled, and said, "No, we work together." I have got to get me an organization chart!
I put down my calculator, got up, and prepared to be a witness. Only the employee about to be written up only speaks Spanish, and my colleague (I learn quick) also speaks Spanish and they went at it for about 10 minutes while I alternated between smiling and looking stern. I got the gist of what was being said, just not the actual words.
In the end, the employee refused to sign the notice of write up, and I went back to my calculator, more confused than ever. I'm nearly seven months into this job and still don't know who is who. Seriously, what are my chances for success?
