Most of it is drama, and drama I can do without, but to make a long rant short the first issue is my sons little league team. The coach told my husband, in front of our son, that he'd benched my son because "he wanted the good players out there"...which of course pissed us off. Not a few minutes earlier the coach's son had said that same sentiment to my son, so it was clear who he was hearing that concept from. Needless to say we are pissed and may remove our son from the team. Not sure yet.
Second, I had been at a temp. job for nearly 2 years and told it was temp to hire, so I waited patiently. Hiring finally happened, without me, as six positions were opened, and six filled, but I was the "magical" seventh person. It didn't seem to matter that I had been there many months longer than all but 1 person and I had never had a performance or personal problem with anyone. Needless to say I quit and requested a new temp job because apparently no one but me valued my skills.
So, yes these two issues are a matter of self worth and in this economy was removing myself from the job a good idea...probably not, but for my sanity and dignity, it was all I could do. As for my son, there is so much tension between us and the coach that we are still undecided. We certainly value his skills as a player more than the coach does, and he knows he is a good player. But we will let him choose to stay or go.
