You’re Not Moving Up at Your Job

So the chick you can’t stand who is the biggest but-kisser in the company to you was promoted to a supervisor position, and you’re mad. That would be understandable if it weren’t for the fact that said brown noser was actually a very dependable worker who comes up with innovative ideas, and comes to work early and stays late to make things happen. You, on the other hand, come to work when you can (a couple of minutes late if not 15-20), you let others talk over you in meetings when you actually have ideas to contribute, and when the clock hits five, YOU’RE OUT!  And it even hurts you when you’re getting the bare minimum accomplished on the daily, and don’t seem to be a worker eager to help others get the hang of things. Not to say you don’t deserve to be upgraded one day, but instead of cutting your eyes at the individual who gets a new opportunity, worry more about yourself and what has been keeping you from climbing up the ladder. If you know you love to be late and few people in the company can vouch for your work ethic (which you believe is amazing), it might help to do something about that.
