"TO BE OR NOT TO BE.....Data Entry Clerk or Backup Clerk."
Establish what exactly your job "Title" is! Are there specific duties that are required of you or are you there to just "back-up" co-workers. What do you do when backing up a co-worker becomes your regular unassigned task, who do you go to? Remember...there is no way on God's green earth that we will all get along, treat your co-workers (no matter how much they may irritate you") with courtesy & respect. If you are not happy with your position and you have exhausted all avenues for a working relationship with your employer/co-workers....start looking for a new job, go back to school but do something to change your situation.
