I am on my second month on my job and don't have a lot of assignments. After a little thinking I decided to tell that to my boss to see if I could be helping in other tasks.
The very moment I asked he replied:
What do you mean? You have a lot of things to do. Didn't you see the sheet x with our pending projects? You have this and this...
The thing is I didn't know about this file with the pending projects (or forgot about it).
After this, he denied some permissions I had requested by his order (we have a system where you submit a request for permission and the manager has to approve) and did not talk much to do after.
So I am silently doing my assignments and didn't say a word after that.
Should I talk to him and explain why I felt I didn't have much to do, try to make it up or just keep doing my job?
