In other news, I'm irate today. Nothing new for a work day these days, but there is some uncalled for nonsense going on, and I just can't tolerate it.
I suppose I have to tolerate it, at least until I've finished school and get a new job, but this madness is infuriating.
Without going into too much boring detail, I'm doing the work, and someone else is getting the recognition. Now, I wouldn't necessarily be so livid, if it wasn't an ongoing situation, and if there weren't monetary rewards involved.
The problem is, the person providing the recognition to the wrong person is so clueless, that they just take the other person's word that they are performing, rather than verifying, because verifying would require you know what you are looking for in the first place, right? Yeah. So that's what I've got going on. And on top of it, I keep getting more and more work piled onto my desk, while this person sits on their cell phone and visits at other cubicles, giggling, gossiping, and eating all day long.
I HATE office politics.
It really doesn't matter how hard you work. How much your customers (in my case bank managers and vp's) write in to say how wonderful you are, how helpful you've been, or how pinnacle you are to their operations.
You just have to be in good with the boss, and then you can slack off and do nothing, and get rewarded for it.
I hate working for tha' man.
Did I tell you I want to be my own boss? I want to open a small business. And I will, too. Wait and see.
I can't tell you too much about it right now, or you might be tempted to take my oh-so-cleaver idea and make it work for yourself. Oh no, padre! Not so fast. I've got plans,you know, and I'm going to work them out. Just wait and see. Just you wait and see...
