Chamber of Commerce

Chamber of Commerce

I work for a Chamber of Commerce, which is a non-profit

organization. My position is administrative assistant (aka I


peon or whatever you would like to call it, but I am the most

educated, most computer efficient person in this office. The

job isn’t that hard I guess, I do get to play on the

internet, download music or whatever and the co-workers are

like my 3rd family (cause I only have 2 coworkers, one being

my boss), but I have to put up with a lot of bullshit


What really gets me are the phone calls we get, now I guess

people hear the words Chamber of Commerce and automatically

think, Telephone Directory. People call and want numbers to

all sorts of places that are in the freakin phone book. It is

terribly annoying and I guess they think that is the only

thing we do here in this office is wait for the phone to ring

so we can look up a phone number for them. Then I get the

people who don’t listen when I answer the phone and clearly

say, “_______ Chamber of Commerce, this is ______.”, and they

say, “Is this the Chamber of Commerce?” I just want to say,

“Did you not hear what I just said, you fucking dumbass?” But

of course, I can’t and that really sucks. Working a job like

this, or practically any other job makes you realize how

stupid people can be. UGH!!!!! I hate it. Other than the

countless stupid phone calls we get my job is pretty good,

but I don’t plan on being here the rest of my life.
