Caught between a rock and a hard place: My supervisor favors her best friend

Question: “I am the administrative assistant to the chief and two directors. The director who runs the day-to-day operations is on extended medical leave and the clinical coordinator is overseeing everything in his absence. The clinical coordinator has been favoring her best friend who also works with us by giving her special parking privileges, allowing extended lunches, etc. How can I approach the clinical coordinator about this favoritism without causing any major problems?” — SR


I understand favoritism. I see it everyday at my office. If you say anything you will definitely feel the "wrath".

I got over being angry by asking myself "is this person taking a longer lunch, having a better parking space, etc. affecting my paycheck...NO.......affecting my life....NO.

Believe me, there is no way to approach this without you suffering the consequences.
