The people i work with are so childish and sometimme i just don"t pay them any mind when they act like that i do my job and pray for them. ...... DB
Excellent advice to heed for everyone in the corporate world especially the newbies and/or soon to be newbies (college grads that is). However, I never recommend anyone taking the high road when something is amiss or truly not fair - I always want to leave that door open for constructive criticism from every level of my team and group of co workers. Best advice is to think before you speak.....
About a month ago I was having a particularily bad day at work. I work with a bunch of people who don't know how to refill things. Found myself muttering, " I work with idiots." Thankfully caught myself before anyone heard. Anyone else just want to shout that out every now and then?
all this because everyone gave the finger to unions and or the conception of....way to go.
I've personally said #2 and #3. I've also said my GM is a horrible manager. And she really is. But needless to say, I still come to work everyday, I still do my job as required and then some, if I am asked. I've also said they don't pay me enough for this, and I will continue to think it, every day that I am here. But my job performance will not be effected by my opinion. I've been here 8 months without taking any sick days or anything. I've seen no benefits, nor will I (As you can imagine, my GM doesn't care for me very much, but unfortunately my opinion of her is not reason enough to fire me.) Essentially, it didn't make the job any worse or any better. It's funny though, I don't understand how she became a GM when she was fired from her last two jobs, but I guess that's beside the point. Bottom line is, you can say it, you can mean it, but you better have the proof in your pudding before you say it, and make sure you are doing your best.
Another good thing is that I work the night shift, so I very rarely have any interaction with my GM at all. On a side note, the person I said all of the above to, yeah she was new, and she was friends with the GM, not that it makes it any better or worse. It's just kind of interesting. Can't even remember what it was that set me off, but it's out in the open now. Of course I am on this new leaf thing. I am planning on apologizing for saying it to the new person, and not going to her, but it won't change my opinion.Recently, I started a second job and I realized something, i just don't have the time or energy between two full time jobs, college, and raising a 2 year old to harbor resentment due to the inability of others. Not to mention, they just don't pay me enough to care about what others do or don't do. As long as I do my job and am here on time every night, that's all that matters in my book.
doh! I thought they were gonna say the line from johnny paycheck's song. or I quit and now your gonna have to do your own work boss. or you hired him boss now you get to fire him after you brought him in from his other job which he now doesn't have and can't go back to. don't ask me about my co-worker your the one who hired him. : ) don't ask me for my opinion if you really don't want to hear it boss, ask the other workers what they think of the guy you brought in and put in charge ,when they have more on the job training than he does, because my opinion didn't matter when you hired him. or put my fingers in my ears and go nah nah nah na nah nah!!! while the boss is trying to tell me how to do my job I have been doing for the last 20 years without missing a day. : )
Apparently whoever said here that idiots don't get promoted never had one as a boss or saw an episode of The Office. I'm so glad that I'm on Social Security for my bipolar condition at 48. Never missed working for a living since. Saw so many stupid mistakes and the bosses kept changing their minds about things literally from one day to the next. For someone who needs consistancy, that was poison to me.
The fact that you are leaching off the system disgusts me....The fact that you think it is ok is even worse....you are the epitome of everything wrong with this country.
Never come back from sick leave with a sun tan.
7. I don't get paid enough to do that, get someone else...8. Can I leave early today I have an interview I have to go to....
THE OWNER IS AN IDIOT . / I HAD HOT STICKY SEX WITH THE OWNERS DAUGHTERS , / IM GONNA KILL EVERY ONE IN THIS DUMP / IF I HAD THIS BUISNESS IT WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE TO WORK / ILL TAKE A LAYOFF ANYTIME / DOCTER SOMEROFF IS COMMING SOON / ?? L O L
If you are swamped with work and the boss asks you to do more there is no reason not to ask if the new work is of a higher priority than the several things you are presently working on. If it is fine , if not ask what priority it has.
