At work we have weekly team meetings over the phone. Every single time I ask a question the manager stops me or says Gina!.... as if I'm being intrusive. Any of the guys chime right in whatever the hell they want with the stupidest questions and it's fine.
Today I stood my ground and I said I need to ask you this because it's not just a stupid question. The problem I was encountering was that on our new system which, is only on our cell phones, the service level agreements gave a different time requirement for it getting done than our old system which we still use. that's pretty fucking crucial because if you miss an SLA even one minute it can cost the company thousands of dollars per incident in penalties
I have 8 cases today all due by 7pm in the old system and due by 1pm in the new system, which we are supposed to go by.
today there was an upper level manager on when I asked a question and he said hold on a second who asked that question..... Gina? That's a good question because that's a known problem and then he checked into it and told everyone what they need to do.
I don't ask a stupid questions. Also, when I have a problem everyone tells me to do basic shit that I already did before I ask. The guys are all mostly dip shits but get treated with reverence. It's bullshit.
