Saw some woman get fired today. Tears welled up in her eyes as snot bubbles sang out her nose.
Moral of the story?
If you have a job, do it.
Don't stroll in at 9:20 bitching about traffic.
Don't take 3 smoke breaks before lunch.
Don't start planning lunch with your co-workers at 11:15.
Don't come back from lunch at 1:20.
Don't take 3 smoke breaks after lunch.
Don't whine about how little the other fat woman isn't doing.
Don't bitch about them not sending you to training.
Don't spend all day on the phone talking to your spouse, kids, or home girls.
Don't go to lunch for an hour and then come back with a Deli sandwich and spend 30 minutes eating at your desk while surfing the net.
Don't start packing up at 4:50 and run out the door at 5:01.
Don't go to the DMV on your lunch break.
Do it online or schedule an appointment for a "PTO" day.
What the hell is a PTO day and what lazy moron dreamed this shit up?
Take your "PTO" on Saturday or Sunday and be happy you don't have to work 6 days a
While I'm at it what the hell is "Comp Time"? Oh my, did you have to work thru lunch
to get your job done! Oh crap call the lunch police! "I'm taking a comp day for all this
extra work they are making me do!", "I'm taking Friday off because I had to work late 3 times this
week!", "How come Billy gets to go to training and I don't?", "I don't understand. I was hired
before him and I do all the work!", "That's bullshit, they can't do that!"
Does any of this sound familiar? Does this go on where you work? What
the heck is going on in our society? I am constantly surrounded by sniveling, lazy person who think somebody owes them something all the time.
The process is really simple. Do your job. If you don't like the job, if you don't think "they" are being fair or whatever it is you are gonna bitch about to your spouse, co-worker, therapist, whomever then just quit. Don't make yourself miserable or the people around you endure your sniveling, bitching, and moaning.
Snot Bubbles. It really didn't have to be like that. Do you think her
attitude will be any better at the next job she lands?
Maybe she can look at the bright side. I'm sure she has 2 weeks vacation
and some "comp time", floating holidays and that ever so important accrued "PTO" saved up!
I guess I just get so frustrated with people bitching about their jobs.
People feeling like "the company" owes them something. Here in the US anyone who wants to can start their own business and with that we can set our own hours, days off, compensation package, whatever.
If you choose not to take that risk and decide to work for someone else who has elected to start his own business then shut up and do your job. Nobody is making you stay, you are free to leave and seek employment elsewhere. Why bitch and moan about every little fucking thing that goes on? Why drag other simple minded individuals down your sorry pathetic path?
A simple test:
Do you like your job?
If you answered b then quit. Oh, if you quit then you have a problem paying the rent, feeding the children, etc? Oh my! What a dilemma this creates!
If I quit I can't make my financial obligations and if I stay I am miserable at work.
Hmmm......How did I end up in this situation? Maybe, I should have stayed Out of dad's liquor cabinet back in high school. Maybe I shouldn't have spread my legs so often when I was 17? Now, I am all fucked up and have an IQ of 11 and the best job I can get is this one so let's blame "the company" for not paying me 3 times my current earning power. While we are at it let's blame them for not giving me that 4 day work week and not letting me off work a 2 p.m. so I can be home with my 9 kids from 3 dads so the cycle doesn't start all over again.
