I'm kinda frustrated right now.

Y'know, I try really hard to contribute to my department and my employer as a whole. For the longest time, I've felt like the IT Bitch, since I'm undoubtedly the lowest paid person in my 3-man department, and yet, I'M always the one coming in on my days off to fix shit. I was finally feeling like this was all paying off and people were taking notice at what I do for this place... All it takes is one little thing though and I'm right back at the bottom.

I have a transponder that allows me access to the parking garage without getting a ticket. It's convenient as hell, but it also affords me access to the garage after hours when I need to be here overnight for a project or something like that. I've had it for 3 years.

Today, I was asked to surrender it, because a new hire needs it and I had the 'spare' (even though I didn't have the spare, I had the one that belonged to my old boss). So now I don't have one. Yes, I know it's not a big deal, but it's definitely a perception thing. Three people in the department and only one doesn't have the magic key to the garage... me, the IT Bitch.

I'm just venting, my boss (who didn't agree with me giving it up) said that he was going to make sure a new one was ordered, but still it's kinda shitty and I'm feeling sorta kicked aside again. Hooray Monday.
