The Let's Bitch About Work Thread!


Recommended Posts

OMG. I just spent an hour trying to print a document. Every time something went wrong. And it wouldn't save any of my printer settings, so every attempt was starting from scratch. Thankfully, that particular project has a flexible deadline, because I either had to step back, or take a sledgehammer to the printer.

How's your work day going?

One of my 30 day goals for training is to improve the "health score" of my boss's database. Each client entry in the database is scored based on what information is entered - 20% each for having a full name, email, phone number, and address, and 4% each for a tag, social media profile, birthdate, company name/position, or lead source. And then the overall database is scored using some version of these numbers.

I spent HOURS yesterday adding over 100 emails to entries without them, and the STUPID METRICS ON THE WEBSITE ARE BROKEN OR SOMETHING BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T CHANGED!! It's still showing that 35% of the database is missing an email, but by my count that number should be 17%.

It always sucks having to be responsible over taking care of your mental health. That’s the ultimate trap of capitalism.

Tomorrow, I have to drive to the airport in my own personal truck to drop off an Amazon order of 200 laptop bags, because someone else added a zero to the quantity by mistake, and is sending back to Amazon.  All because someone doesn't want to pay Amazon $75 to pick up directly from our site.  How is this a) part of my job and b) my responsibility for someone else's mistake?  Answer: the fine print that says "...and duties as assigned," I guess.

If you are a white, male, middle-aged engineer, I probably hate you right now. What a bunch of whiners.

 

I swear, going to a ULA holiday party has the least amount of diversity of any place I have ever been in my life.

I think we all know by now I'm the afternoon girl and there's a morning girl... so, we're supposed to double duty the break room in a 90/10 split. I clean and sanitize it every night, and am responsible for cleaning the refrigerator out once a week, all because I'm the afternoon girl. All the morning girl has to do is unload the dishwasher when she gets in. One little two-minute task.

Monday night, when I turn the dishwasher on, I forgot to flip the little sign from "dirty" to "clean." So I get in at 12:30pm Tuesday and the morning girl tells me that the dishes looked clean, but without the sign flipped she just couldn't tell, and so she left it for me to do. She didn't bother flipping the sign herself so other people wouldn't use it, and I then had to separate out clean dishes from dirty.

Could she have texted me about it, the way she does every other question she has? Yeah. Did she wait for me to do it for her full well knowing that I'm under doctor's orders to not lift or bend? Yup.

Yesterday, I made sure the sign was flipped correctly before leaving. I get in at 12:30pm, and she hasn't touched the dishwasher. I'm left to take care of the whole kitchen again.

Joke's on her when she gets to do the whole thing while I'm gone. But I'm coming back full well knowing she'll just dump the whole job on me again.

I've been in a camera on zoom meeting for an hour and a half and not only do I have to pee but I really want a snack. Kids are at school and Katie's at costco and the cat is worthless, so I can't get anyone to get me anything.

My second job changed hours to the ludicrous 7 o'clock closing time when most places are reopening and starting to be open later. Not convenient for my other job. They needed supervisor support for the weekends. So to take one for the team I told them I would do it this passed Saturday but I want out of the rotation for the three month period where everyone takes a turn being supervisor on Saturday. Guess what. I got assigned a rotational Saturday on July 3 but no one let me know that they were going to send out those bids or I would be on it. 

Have you ever felt your job just doesn't give a fuck about you?

I'm working from home tomorrow because it's my first day without anti-inflammatories. And I'm off until my doctor clears me to go back, probably on July 6. I told the morning girl when I came in today and she looked PANICKED.

... I think everyone is going to miss me.
