Learn to Drink

Why didn’t I ever learn to drink?  I have put myself through college, took 13 years to do it working as a preschool teacher.  Finally, an ISD job making decent money.  Guess what?  My husband lost his job.  We’re living on beans again.  He won’t go to school, cant find a job, and has turned down 3 that he thinks are beneath him. Meanwhile, the snobbs I work with are telling me that I ask too many question of the

I Make too Much Money

Unlike many of your ranters, I have a very different problem.  I make too much money to leave my soul sucking job.  I have a job at a huge corporation and have managed to work my way firmly into the ranks of middle management (or maybe a bit higher than that).  If I keep at it, I could retire (in a modest “Your Money or Your Life Style”) in 5 years (I’ll barely be 40). Sounds great, huh? But I

You Guys are Pussies

You guys are pussies. I feel for the dish washers but I work at a catering company and not only do I have to do the dishes I also have to prepare the food (dust chicken for broasting, cut potatoes into both fries and broasted potatoes, cut cabbage, make cole slaw, prepare ribs, also cut debone and bread various fish.) and work the counter and phones. Mind you I go in at 6 am most days and I don’t get

Caregiver

I just quit my job as a caregiver. People always think that its an easy job. Physically yes, it may not be that difficult. But what gets you is the sleep deprivation, and the physiological trauma. You are someone’s BITCH for 8 hours. Imagine your manager not in their own office, or wandering around. Imagine him or her in your grill 24/7. Imagine sharing a desk with the person who signs your paychecks. That’s what it is but even worse.

Supercenter

Supercenter… A word that means something that is not super and is never located in the center. I hate this job, i wake up spend a couple hours doing nothing then go to work at 10pm. I work till 7am stocking shelves… and yes its boring. My back hurts, my coworkers are fugly, and if someone else gives me a “tip” or “advise” on how to do the SIMPLE EFFING JOB one more time i’m going over the super part

Top Secret Email

So a bunch of people in my office started this super duper top secret email alias. The exclusivity of this alias makes Fight Club look like Sams club. Its really redonk. So needless to say I want to get on this list. The gatekeeper is this guy who is hungry with power. if he were a college bouncer he would tell you to wait on line then when you got to the front tell you you cant come in because

Bunch of A Holes

SO I applied for a new position, that has just been created and that I would be perfect for. Do I get the job? No, the hiring manager’s friend gets it! Not only that, but the way I find out I didn’t get the job is this: She calls me into her office and, all in one breath, this woman says “We’ve decided to offer the postition to _____ but you really interviewed well and had a lot of good

Dishwashing 2

I can completely empathize with the other dishwashing rant that is already on this page. I work 7 hours, which doesn’t seem like much, but I’m 16 and having someone else in charge of when you can leave is really awful. I envy everyone who posts here who gets to sit down AT ALL during their job because I get yelled at any time I sit down outside or on the ice bucket in the kitchen, which is also about

Working in Juvie

Dont get me wrong I really like my job overall, but working for the juvenile corrections system sucks in a lot of ways. I have been with the california juvenile system for 19 years. In this time I have observed a lot of change, some good and some bad. First of all you deal with negative attitude form the clientele 80-90 percent of the time. No matter what it is it is always your fault in their eyes. This makes
