Feel free to complain here, or vent, or whatever you want to call it.
My job. I am fairly good at what I do but I constantly suffer from people getting the wrong impression and then telling everybody else about it. I am tired of it and I was ready to give my 2 weeks notice yesterday, without having anything else lined up. My boss was actually asking me to lie to a customer. When I told the customer the truth, that there wasn't enough time to get everything done, they didn't like it and fired the email off to my boss. He told me to tell them I would get everything done, and be more positive. I told him I was positive that I couldn't get everything done. I am positive, but I am also realistic, and honest. Those seem to be undesirable traits now a days.
I drove home feeling nauseated and broke open my knuckles punching the roof of my van.
When my wife saw how angry I was she said she would support any decision I made. Including, staying at home and taking care of our daughter.
I take 3 days of FMLA during the summer to care for my daughter when she is not in school. My problem is, insurance, finding a new job where they would let me do that, and making enough money to get by. I can always go on my wife's insurance. Since I am not working full time during the summer, I make less money anyway. I am not concerned about the money as much as feeling more fulfilled. I work my butt off here and nobody appreciates it. If I got a job helping special needs kids, I think I would feel much better as far as feeling fulfilled. I have since calmed down and not sent any of the emails I wanted to, but I trying to find a light at the end of the tunnel. Most who know me know I am not an angry person, quite the opposite.
Prediction: I will die at work from a heart attack or a burst blood vessel when a person says something so incredibly stupid that my body rebels. I can't work for stupid people.
Example: when the company put GPS on our vehicles. One of the Boss's said it was for our protection.
Right. It is clear to me that they do think we are that stupid if we would believe that. I can't work for people like that. My head hurts.[/Rant]
