I Really Like My Job

No! No! No! No! No! I can assure you, that I’m not going crazy only because I have been off of Prozac for close to two months already, or because I am trying to suck up to my employer, manager or even my supervisor. The hell! I’m not even delusional! But it is true, I really enjoy my job. You see, for the last twelve years of my life, I have been working as a customer service representative for a large publicly held company in New York City. I have to add, that I have worked in three different departments, but they have all been under the customer operations umbrella. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had my ups and downs, but I really can’t complain.

You see, my work days are from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, but I usually get there at around 7:00 am and 7:15 am. Yes! I do have a crazy thing about getting to work early… and it has been like that my entire work life. On the other hand, every Friday I get a schedule from my supervisor through email, which tells me what I will be doing the following week… unless circumstances change, which sometimes they do. The whole thing is that 3/4 of the time, I get to take my breaks and lunch at whatever time I want to. I can also take as many smoke breaks as I want to. Plus I don’t have my supervisor breathing down my neck all of the time. The thing about my job is, that as long as I don’t make constant mistakes and I do all of my work, there is no need for me to interact with my supervisor, even though she works a few steps way from my desk. What I am trying to say is, that I have a great job with good pay and good medical benefits. What else can I ask for!

With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!


Workplace Bullshit

Right now I’m 48 years old, and out of those 48 years, I’ve been working and paying taxes for the last 32. Throughout my 32 years of employment, I have learned a lot of things. Out of those things, the one that I always keep in mind is “don’t get involved in workplace gossip, bullshit and nonsense”. This is the whole thing about me not getting involved in any of that bullshit. Throughout my working years, I can’t tell you how many times co-workers have come to me, talking shit about other coworkers, supervisors and or managers. You see, the whole thing that they never knew or realized about me was, that I have never and will never give a fuck about what they thought or had to say about other employees. It’s just none of my business!

You have to understand, that the way that I look at works is like this. I go in for eight hours a day, from Mondays through Fridays. Whatever work is given to me, I try to do by the end of the day. I follow orders from my supervisors, managers and higher up. I get along with my co-workers and I help them whenever I can. But when it comes to office gossip and bullshit… my coworkers can go fuck themselves. Why? Because when the shit hits the fan, I’m 100% sure, that I will find myself with shit up to my neck. In other words, when a coworker starts talking to me about someone else, I listen… but only because I am a good listener. But even if I agree with the person, I stay quiet. Why? Because I get paid to do a function, not to talk shit or complain about others. That’s management’s job.

With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!
