trying to set some boundaries with my boss today, ugh, very rough-going

so far responses are of the flavour "ok i hear you, but remember i can do whatever i want"

i asked if i could get some noise-cancelling headphones because they help me focus

he pushed really hard toward no, because he was worried if someone came to my office for tech help, i wouldn't be able to hear a knock on the door.

so i said ok let's experiment with that & see if we can hear the knock /w the headphones on

then he moved the goalpost, and said headphones would give some kind of bad / unavailable impression to people, and that I should want to appear "as available as possible" to people

tl;dr is that i might have to disclose my cptsd to these folx to be able to get accomodations *sigh*

@tty you may want to start searching for another job if it's gotten this bad this quickly...

@nleigh this job is tied to a work visa for me, so changing jobs re: immigration is quite challenging
