The @$&*@ Radiant team at work. They've been a thorn in my side for months, but I was recently called a Liar by the team's director at a director's meeting which I did not attend. I've been running around trying to get permission to use sourced info from those sources in a new Radiant manual, and it's been like pulling teeth to get responses. Finally got two out of the three, but one source had an online form that received no response save a "don't call us, we'll call you" kickback message giving them about a month to respond to me. My director told the Radiant director that it was time for them to start knocking on doors, since they were the ones who wanted the info, and I was getting nowhere. The manager below the Radiant director filled out the SAME FORM, received the SAME MESSAGE and then told the director that I must never have tried to seek permission, since he received the kickback email so quickly and I "claim to have received nothing."
That's when the Radiant director called me out in a meeting that I knew nothing about. They've been extremely demanding about their tech docs up to this point (mostly with regards to the swiftness of their production), but now I'm pretty sure the Radiant director wants my head. Thank god I have a good relationship with the other directors. And I'm praying the manager never gets a response, because if he does, I'm dead in the water.
I haven't been this stressed at my job since I worked at that hellish pizza joint that no longer exists.
