I know that I'll probably sound like I'm whining but I really am upset 
over this and I don't know how to deal with it, so I'm venting here.

I have been here for 2 years and have worked my ass off in the mean time 
putting in overtime up the wazoo. (56 hour weeks for almost the last 6 

The guy that was offered the Project Managers postion was someone I 
Trained, and has been here only 1 year. But he's in good with the VP as 
if they were buddies and has been asskissing since the day he got here. 
No matter that most of his projects I've finished or straightened out 
cause of his incompetence.

Yesterday he announced to our Boss that he has been offered the Project 
Managers (it is in a different dept but still in connection to 
ours) position because the VP had recommended him for it. 

I am happy for him cause he IS a good guy, but I wasn't even given a 
chance to apply for the position cause the VP recommended him cause they 
were buddies.

I am so upset over this that I can't believe it and I resent him so much 
because of it. I wish I didn't feel like this but it just hurts alot.

I have put on my professional face around here and haven't spoken to 
anyone about my feelings but its just eating me up inside, I actually had 
to go to the bathroom and cry in the stall. I hope I can face the rest of 
these 2 days until he moves into his new office a building over. Which 
sucks even more cause I'm stuck in an F'n cubicle.

Anyway, thanks for listening.
