The "bitch about your day job" thread

Post by marqueemoon » Wed Oct 27, 2004 5:45 pm

I'm so damn tired from my stupid job I don't even have the energy left to complain about it properly.

Here's your chance to make me feel better by convincing me that your job sucks more.

Go!

My job just cheated me $200 out of my last paycheck... I have to talk to her about it tomorrow. I can understand a discrepancy of about $10 or so, but $200? Obvious something's going on there.

On top of that, I'm often told things like "a baby could do this better", "are you blind?", "don't be an idiot", etc.

After spending 10 years working for snowboard manufacturers and doing well, but getting somewhat frustrated having gone as far as I could go, I decided to get a "real job".

NOTE: Is this in no way a good idea.

I now work for Key Bank and iron my shirt every morning like a good robot. Gawddamnit I used to wear shorts and Neurosis shirts to work while being able to casually throw out words like "dick", "fuck" and "asshole" at manager meetings. I wish someone would have stopped me from making this huge mistake. Really.

Oh yeah, besides my shitty decision making the banking industry is fucked, is all about fucking you and all of your loved ones. Credit Unions and mattresses are WAY cooler.

This would be so rad if you were a surgeon. You're not a surgeon are you? :shock:

after building a stable and lucrative (though massively stressful and ultimately health-impairing) career for over 6 years, i've now been jobless for over 2 years.
i'd take any damned job, but the former receptionist at my old office is now the HR person and has been lying about me to any potential employer who calls up. everyone who would watch my back (the entire management team, in fact) has either left or died.
i've been doing independent consulting since my unemployment insurance ran out.

oh, and credit unions will screw you, too.

My job's okay. I can wear sneakers and jeans and it pays most of my bills. My one gripe is I have to spend two hours a day monitoring a computer lab filled with grades 6-12 aged children. Most fall in the 11-14 year old category. The absolute most despicable type of person on the planet, IMHO. Virtually every other word out of their mouths is an un-ironic "fag." It also kinda sucks being the "lame old guy" (25) who has to get on their case when they do stupid shit.

tell them...i love my 14 year old and when 'gay' comes out of his mouth he catches it like hell. if i heard him say 'fag' he'd look at me run! haha...he's really cool, actually. he's got a great head on his shoulders.

my day job is my day job. i can't even tell how i feel about.

DITTO.

although we do have audio suppliers come in and show us all their new technology and surround sound stuff trying to get us to integrate it into our vehicles, that's about the saving grace some weeks.
