Feels Like I'm Being Singled Out at Work
Hi guys! So to begin with, I've always had trouble with my ADHD since I was a child, but I wasn't recently diagnosed until last year (when I was 23)(I had two doctors who told me I was imagining things before having four doctors and a therapist tell me I actually did have it).
Anyways, everyone at work knew I had it, but after I was officially diagnosed I gave all my doctor's proof (or whatever you call it) to my boss and her supervisor - I work in a shipping warehouse, were each employee is given their own shipping desk to pack products; think of us like amazon, only with humans.
I've always had issues wandering away from my desk and talking to people or getting distracted by something, but that is slowly getting better. However, there is this girl at work (literally a girl, because she just graduated high school) who wanders away from her desk twice as much to talk to people (for example, today she came in at 10, and by 10:15 she had already wandered away from her desk 3 times). She DOES NOT have ADHD, she is just extremely lazy. Every other one of my coworkers have noticed her doing these acts - they've also noticed that I have been doing better. I brought it up to my boss, a week ago, and she told me; "Well, if I give her the talk, I'd have to give you the talk too because you wander too." The thing is, we have multiple cameras in the warehouse, and they know she wanders and talks too much or avoids doing her job, while I only leave my station to go to the bathroom or get supplies.
Today, we were EXTREMELY short staffed, so after she wandered away for the third time within 15 mins, I asked her nicely to please not wander away so much, because we were ver busy and extremely short staffed. She went to my boss. My boss pulled my into the office and told me to stop talking to this girl because I 'wander just as much', and the next time I wander I will be written up. She, however, was not pulled into the office or talked to.
