Now I know it! cont.../
So the frequent times off have (except for one day when I had to fetch my brother) have been to go and see my psychiatrist. Now I cannot get any appointments over weekends, or later in the afternoon, so when I have an appointment, I need to leave 30 minutes earlier from work. In addition to this, I've NEVER left 30 minutes earlier if I hadn't been at work 30 minutes early.

Yet when one of the other staff members are hung-over and ask to come in late, he never gives them grief.

Now he has also admitted to the department, that he went and blabbed to the MD about one of my colleagues decision to leave - although he hasn't officially handed in his resignation yet. Nice. What else has he blabbed about? The 'huge' salary I was offered when I started at the company? Its completely market related to my years experience, education and skills. Yet I've received so many snide remarks from some of the other people in my department about my salary. Not that they come right out and say that they know what I'm earning, rather blaming it on an innocent comment I made that my tax was more than what my brother-in-law earns. Hellooo. He works for minimum wage as a security guard!. My tax has been more than his current salary since I started programming! We were taxed a lot more heavily nine years ago. So how do they know what I'm earning from that comment? I could be earning under R10 000 and still my tax would be more than what he earns. Plus I can guarantee that my one colleagues' house that she bought some years ago for R600 000 wasn't just because millionaire mummy and daddy gave her R400 000 as a deposit. Naturally she's the one giving me the most grief.

Well, at least she talks to me. Some of the other women in my department completely exclude and ignore me. They won't look at me when I ask them a question. Quite a change from the welcome I got when I started working here.

So my question - What changed? The answer seems rather obvious doesn't it.
