Looking at Assassination

There are several adjectives that have been used to describe me over the years (at work). Usually these have run toward organized, meticulous, patient, observant, professional, and efficient. I have been accused of being “too motherly” and too unemotional in the past as well. I can live with that. Descriptors that have never been used in describing me include petty, vindictive, dishonest, deceitful, and unskilled. Until now. The additional accusations that I “have a hidden agenda” and I’m “evil” just made me laugh. Of course the definition of assassination is ‘to injure or destroy unexpectedly and treacherously’. I’m not too much concerned about my professional reputation or my character. Anyone who knows me can come to their own conclusions and if questioned I will just have to say that they should consider the source.

That’s all I have to say about that.

  1. I am trying to figure out ‘assassination’ here. Assuming you are saying someone is assassinating your character.

    I seem to remember someone telling me “while they are talking about you they are leaving someone else alone”. 🙂 But I can’t imagine anyone telling you that you are evil and meaning it. Are you in a supervisor position? Nobody likes them. 🙂


    1. Your assumption is correct. I am not a supervisor. All the supervisors had their positions eliminated in the reorganization. I am a slightly more senior member of the staff and a mentor and team leader. I still get my hands dirty like always.


  2. You said it very well, but the protective mama bear in me wants to make hamburger out of that source, but it would be way too bitter to eat!
