I hate my job! (in Off-topic)


TheHatchetman December 20 2006 11:01 PM EST

Everyone i work with, is unreliable, back-stabbing, two-faced, and lazy (each with a seperate mixture)... The only ones there, not on a power trip, are myself, and my boss. Only 8 people working there, 1 is the boss, 6 act like they are. The actual boss, does nothing, says nothing, doesn't care, and is a push-over in general... When I'm not there, nothing gets done. When I am there, its 'Andy do this', 'Andy, can you...', 'Andy, since you're heading to the back anyway (when I'm not), could you'... MY NAME ISN'T ANDY!!! But anyways, they still get nothing done, while i get plenty done. But be sure they will be taking credit for what they asked me to do... But the straw that broke the camel's back, was today. A couple weeks ago, i brought in a Swingline (yes, Swingline!) stapler, as kind of a private joke for myself (if you've seen 'Office Space', you should know what im talking about. If not, rent it.). Today, I get there, and (I kid you not!), its nowhere to be found! I'm quitting after Christmas...

But was the stapler in a jello mold?
Then you hit the perfect job!!

Not to take away from your rant, but high school definitely isn't any better. I try to be really nice to everyone in my school and it seems lately everyone has decided to increasingly act like [blank]s to me. I guess I'm the guy you talk to when none of your friends are there that day or if you need help doing something on the computer. Other than that, I don't exist, or I'm a punching bag for their daily stresses. It's miserable being in this high school. I really want to leave it all behind as soon as possible.

Hey Opvines we pick on you here don't we? LoL.Ah man It seems to me almost everyone feels like they come off second best at that age . Hatchet man what ? Why didn't you yell hey who stole my stapler. The squeaky wheel gets the grease its a saying true but its too true.If your going to quit anyways why not work to rule,push back !Call them Andy or Nancy (better). Say aren't you supposed to be doing that? I wouldn't want to get you in trouble. Sounds like they have been playing bake the Neeb EH?Oh well there's my two cent anyway.

Sorry to hear that Andy =(


but I still <3 you


but since you are making threads anyways, can you....awww, heck, I'll let you have a break and do this one myself. Merry Christmas!

OpVines, I remember high school, its all about self esteem. When you have high self esteem, its obvious to others, and they respect that. If you think you are the man, you are the man. So long as you're outgoing and easy enough to talk to. I was the kid who got picked on in Elementary School, got jumped in my first middle school (I was one of 3 white kids in the entire school of 1400) before getting kicked out (cuz i would actually fight back, and often win. Being 5' 10" 170 lbs at 11 yrs old has that advantage). Went to a different middle school for 7th and 8th grade, and was extremely anti-social. Then i hit high school, and figured, I've got nothing to lose, if they don't like me, i'll kick their [butt]. Started being myself, making myself known, and ended up being the big guy in high school that beat up the big guys that beat up the little guys. The guy that hung out with the varsity football team (and was technically a Tight End for a week), hung out with the 'band geeks', and everybody in between. I was also the guy that left chool at lunchtime, provided i even showed up at all (which explains the G.E.D.)...


Basically, be yourself, keep your chin up, talk to everybody, and at the worst, you'll settle in somewhere. At best, you'll stand out everywhere you go.

Well Sally, that sounds reHeally interesting, now could you do me a favour and get back to work?

I'm sorry, too many episodes of Scrubs in the past few days and dailyepisodes have cut them off at a certain point and I'm getting withdrawals.

Flamey December 21 2006 3:15 AM EST

I was reading that Zog and, LOL.

I was thinking, "Scrubs, Scrubs".


I agree with Slash, work to rule! you'll still get paid the same other than that, you'll get fired a tad earlier than you would of quit, or just work to rule, like everyone else, if you don't fired that means, you are making money for doing crap all.

Life sucks and then you die its a pretty unfourtunate circumstance just learn to take the good with the bad.

ResistanZ December 21 2006 4:54 AM EST

Anyone who knows me in real life can testify that I've never lacked self-confidence. But when multiple people sudden change how they react towards you it's very easy to notice, especially if it's for the worse.

Find ways to make each and every person there hate life, that should keep you entertained until the new year!

i agree Jim, dont mess around, Swingline is a good stapler and yes i own office space, BUT i must tell you that if nothing gets done and people slack at your jobplace then its up to your boss to maintatin order/control, if he cant then he has failed at being a boss, you as an employee can only do so much like get your stapler back before you quit and burn the place down

"too many episodes of Scrubs in the past few days"

I d/led every episode and watched them all back to back :)

Godpanda December 21 2006 8:35 AM EST

TheHatchetman December 21 2006 3:36 PM EST

And the 'work to rule' idea sounds great. What are they gonna do, fire me? I'm supposed to be there a half hour ago, i called just now and the conversation went like this (in cb chat format):

<Christine (my manager)> Dollar General, how may I help you?
<me> Hey Chris, I'm not coming to work today
<Christine> Oh, hey Andy. Are you sick?
<me> Andrew, and no, im just not scheduled a day off until Christmas, and my last day off was last Thursday, so i decided i don't want to go to work today.
<Christine> We really need your help here tho...
<me> You probably do, but I think I'm going to catch a movie instead...
<Christine>Well, are you gonna be here tomorow
<me> It's likely, but no guaruntees. I gotta go tho, so I'll see ya later. Bye
<Christine> Bye

Wow...I never thought I'd agree with you, Op, but that sounds exactly like me.
