I don't know who else to ask so I come to you...bbq bretheren. This is going to sound like I am a **** but I don't care... I need to vent.
Long story short. I work in vacation sales. Every year there is an incentive. "top 6 agents to book xx property gets to go on a trip to xx island". I have been the top 6 every year and usually won the incentive as the #1 booker.
Long story short, last night I get an email saying "George cant make it, your next up...want to go?" I emailed my boss and was like, "what do you mean? I was in the top spot for this incentive why am I only being invited now that George cant go? I should have been the first asked"
I had 40% more bookings than the #2 person so it should have been very clear I won and was not sloppy seconds. When I emailed about it again this morning (after getting no response last night), they said "o, we sorted the data wrong and you were in fact #1, sorry about that." Needless to say, there have been weekly data updates for 4 months and I was always in the #1 spot, by 30-40% so it should have been clear I deserved a spot.
Should I be pissed I was looked over? I feel like because I can be a pain in the ass (I demand a lot...but I am also the #1 agent for 4 years in a row) they purposefully overlooked me and I would have never known that I wasn't invited until the trip was over and the boat had sailed. Am I over reacting? I have worked my ASS off to be the top agent year after year and this is what I get for it.
Sorry for the drama...but I have no where else to ask and need to vent!
I turned down the trip after being invited as sloppy joe seconds. Why offer incentives if they are only going to invite those that they really like on a personal level? Im not here to make friends so I don't care if I am disliked (as being the top agent year after year puts a target on my back) but I do expect to be given incentives that I have earned.
end rant. I know a lot of you are successful business people so I figured I would ask. do you think they truly did make a mistake or did I get screwed?
god I need a new job. think BGE is hiring?
