Writing

A very unpleasant thing happened this week. My manager gave me an assignment on Thursday , furthermore she asked me to finish it on Friday. The assignment is print 151 documents , staple them , and stamp them . I accepted this task.
When I am doing the assignment, the manager of administration department Shaw said she had no assistant to give the mooncakes to the employees, she needed an assistant. And then she told to my manager that she wanted to choose an employee from our department to help her. My manager said, ok, you could ask Hermia to help you, please ask her by yourself, I cannot arrange her because she never obey me.
So Shaw came to my work station and asked me to help her . I felt strange because I think I have a heavy duty , why did my manager agree with Shaw to assign me . So I went to my manager’s office to asked her . She told me that she never agreed to let me do it.
Then Shaw and my manager had an argument about it.
Finally, a disgusting thing happened, my manager called me to her office , she let me go to the boss’s office to tell our boss that I don’t want to help Shaw. I rejected her, she pushed me into the boss’s office.
I think my manager didn’t want to shoulder the responsibility so she let me face everything by myself . She often likes to blame me for everything which will offend another people. She is a volatile woman, if she isn’t happy she will angry at me . So I would like to resign our company next year because I can’t stand my manager. Now I am flexible about the next company , I just look forward to the salary of next job will more than my present job.
I’m very frustrated once thinking about this.
