I work in a pharmacy, where I was hoping I could shut up, do my job, and go home. But as we all know, it never works out that way. My boss’s wife is running around humping anything that moves and I get to hear about it on a regular basis, because apparently I’m a shrink and a bartender rolled into 1 and I get off thinking about his miserable life. Either he’s talking about how he “doesn’t know his
well im bored out of my bear skull right now. been in the same job for a year n half.. should have moved on and got a new and interesting job by now but living next door to the workplace is the easiest thing in the world. the boss fired my friend who i hired, then, for suggesting a better machine than the boss suggested for the workplace and the boss didnt like his suggestion, fired him for arguing with
You guys are pussies. AW, I have to sit in front of a computer, and make decent money? How painful and excruciating. Try what I do, then go back to your old job, you’ll love it. Dishwashing. Yes, dishwashing. I work 6 days a week, 9+ hour shifts without a break. Paid horribly, and I can hardly get out of bed on my days off from being exhausted. Anyway, I’d like to continue more, but I have to go get
Oh, no, I love it when you want to help me out. Love it. I love it even more when it is an command sponsored volunteer activity–since you are then helping me look good for my bosses, helps you get some good volunteer time, and we both get to help the community. And you know what I really love? When you don’t show up for two weeks in a row. Love it! I love getting a call on Friday night
I was reading the rants on here…and none of them…NONE…even comes close to the death march I continue every day with some of the most vile blood sucking leech idiots one could ever work with! Just being around them makes me want to shoot myself in the head….or…uhh…maybe my foot. They aren’t worth dieing over…but I’d definitely shoot my damn foot over the job!!! F&^%$ it is like stapling my tounge to the ass of a goat…every damn day..that is
Crap Jobs, they are everywhere and anywhere, and for most of them you need a post-secondary education!! I saw an administrative assistant position advertised which asked for a degree! The only thing you need a degree for in that job is when your typing up your letter of resignation. I mean the irony of it all. Many of us attend university and college to learn about such wonderful things as politics, history, art etc. (you know what I’m talking about).
Call Centre – can you imagine? Utterly soul destroying. Someone called me the other day and told me their cat had died… given that we sell Broadband I was unprepared to respond. The young girl next to me is actually about to stab herself in the face with a lit cigarrette. I feel for her, I really do. I don’t smoke so I’m just going to have to bite my wrists in the bathroom. Goodbye world
I hate my job so much!!!!!! It’s so freakin’ boring and it doesn’t even challenge me! I am always done with all my workload months before anyone else finishes and I sit here trying to slow down so that I will have work to do other days but it just makes me even more bored. I can even go and help others with their workload or try and take initiative and do other work because people get mad that you
Were I to sum up the total experience of my daily work environment in one word/phrase, I’d have to say open office. As in no cubicles, no walls, no sound proofing and no barriers whatsoever against any and all who feel like camping out for a while or reading my computer screen. This sucks but would overall be manageable over time if it werent for one teensy little detail. My bosses, (of which there are 5), made and continue to
Christmas is the time of year to celebrate with the amazing group of lovable friends we sometimes call coworkers. I’ve been to my share of office Xmas parties, each lame in their own special way. The only thing that makes these parties remotely bearable is the open bar. Open bar, dude Not only can you get hammered to the point where you can’t understand everyone’s incessant rambling, you also get the added benefit of observing your coworkers at their finest.
