1. Gullible officemates who
"fall for just about every too-good-to-be-true or too-stupid-to-be-true (etc) rumor out there and then feel the need to babble excitedly about it to everyone!"I'm quoting him. He gave me the idea for this post, btw.
2. Nonperforming co-workers who are tirelessly looking for excuses to escape the workload. This is during those times when they took the time to report for work and bless us with their presences. But don't get me wrong, they are actually helpful when it comes to some very specific statistics. Like they're great when it comes to contributing to the absenteeism rate.
3. Incompetent figures of authority who, at best, excel in fault finding and power tripping like its nobody else's business. And they've practiced it so well that they've become super ignorant of the fact that they're not helping. They're the same people who, at the same time, had the iron set of balls to tell you they're right and you're wrong, you're always wrong, and there's no way in hell you're winning an argument against them because they're already filing a report for insubordination halfway through your well-meaning and well-rehearsed defense.
They make you want to sit down and wonder what validation does a promotion acknowledge these days?
I heard she's no longer in the program though, and that is such an opportunity missed. I'd like to give her a piece of my mind. It's going to be an all-caps conversation without no keyboards or none.
4. I know this sounds like I'm agreeing just for the hell of it, but believe me when I tell you that you sound happier now that you have resigned from the office. You really do sound pleased, and I'm genuinely happy about the whole situation. Life goes on without you though, if that's your main concern.
5. To your friends that are still here, see number 4, nothing or no one really cares enough to keep you from resigning. Deal with it. So if you wanna flip the finger towards due process, fuck the last thirty days right?, just stop going to work already. Aren't you tired of making excuses?
6. Let me quote Mark Twain:
"When we do not know a person--and also when we do--we have to judge his size by the size and nature of his achievements, as compared with the achievements of others in his special line of business--there is no other way."So this means NO, the length of your stay in this here company is completely dead to me. I mean, I'm too old for penis envy. Line of business! Ha, what a beautiful coincidental phrase.
7. You know what you signed up for, and what your functions are, and that makes two of us. So if you can read, please do so between the lines.
8. Complaining has never been and will never be a bankable asset. So shut your trap and develop a set of good work ethics this early on.
