I love what I do but I am disgusted with my job.

The job would be perfect if I didn't have all these people around me bothering me, asking for shit and fucking things up.

A friend pointed out to me that it is a employer's market and I should fire the inept and seek someone who can, at least, walk and chew gum at the same time. Personally I tend to lean on the old saying...

You know what you have but you don't know what you're going to get.

Attention to detail is a necessity at my office. I can't even begin to write about the idiotic errors that happen over and over again. Errors turn into a delay in money which makes me a tad testy.

I have a fall fashions to shop for G-d damn it!

Yesterday I took someones head off for losing me a very important client. Apparently this bitch of a client didn't like getting yelled at and hung up on.


To makes matters worse, my employee looked me in the eyes and told me the incident never occurred. A long standing client went to the trouble to complain to their main office and have a letter of complaint put in our file just for shits and giggles. Not buying it. Especially since I have received complaints about her attitude both on the phone and in person previously.

I am trying to sooth that over by kissing ass but why the hell should I have to get on my knees to these people? (To BEG. Get your minds out of the gutter) What I really should do is fire her ass but the problem is, the one person crossed trained in her position is going to be adding to the worlds over population in the next couple of weeks.

I've been seeking a new position for a while now. Something new and challenging. Something that will get my blood pumping again.

Something that has an entirely new set of inept employees.

Note to self: When you are looking for a cute header picture for a work post, be sure to google work and not job.

First, Gene Simmons has politely offered me his boots to use. Just tell me when and where. I'm glad I can't use the word fire but my word makes HR hop. I don't get mad, I get somebody else to do the job. I have important timelines and people waiting to get what they need to be done. Your right, you should have to kiss buns to get the job done. Loss of client in my book means loss of job. I like you last note.

Why people lie when they know there is proof of their wrong-doing is beyond me. Idiots.

Ugh! Fire her - and let her see how fun it is to find a new job in this market. I don't know how you put up with it. Grrrrr.

The Dish said...

I will come work for you. It has to be better than my current job. I am college educated, self motivated, intelligent, professional... What, I have to move? Never mind.

Seriously, Fire her ass. You are better off training someone new than losing clients.

Absolutely Dish and the owner agrees. Although he won't have to figure out how to cover the dumb bitches job until I find someone good.

You sure? Florida grows on ya.
