Feeling pretty shitty right now. I have a bitch of a cold coming on, just like half of the people I work with. Due to the change the bastards made with the sickness policy I think we’ll have an epidemic on our hands. In their infinite wisdom, the company I work for has decided it would be a fucking great idea to not pay people when they are off sick. So, rather than taking time off, people who are infected with the flu virus are coming into work and spreading their germs amongst the healthy population. On my team of eleven there are five people who feel just as shitty as I do, but if we take time off we don’t get paid. What kind of bullshit is this? Fuck ’em. If I get too bad I will take the time off and the fuckers can rot if they dock my pay. I decided to start looking for something else anyway, so if they fuck me over on this it will just be another nail in the coffin of my continued employment.

Maybe it would be good for me to change. They (who the fuck are ‘they’?) say that a change is as good as a holiday. Personally, I think that’s bullshit. I’ll take a holiday over a change any day of the week (like Miami in four weeks, babay!!). But still, getting out of the shithole I work in now might be just what I need.

Everyday I get more and more frustrated. I spend half of my day helping out someone who gets paid more than me for doing the same job because of his inability to learn new stuff. It’s beginning to seriously piss me off, the fucking injustice of it. All I want is a fair wage for the work I do. I work just as hard as the rest of my team and I get paid less than the rest of my team. The company talks about rewarding performance and it’s bullshit upon bullshit. How the fuck is my performance being rewarded when I am paid SEVENTEEN HUNDRED POUNDS less than the chimp without a clue at the desk nextdoor? I think that if they fixed that I would be much happier. It isn’t the money, it’s the fact that they all get more. Ugh!

Maybe Sy getting this new ECON (that’s employee consultation to you and me) representative role will help. he’s in the same boat as i am and the whole team understands and disagrees with the shitty state of affairs we’re in. We deserve more recognition for what we do, and I don’t mean some uptight bastard telling me “well done”. I mean a fair wage for a fair day’s work, not this double standards policy where people who happen to have worked their longer get more.

To top off another shitty day I’ve had this fucking shit to put up with. This is a lesson in how not to get a staff position on gamingforums:

i sended you a message earlier about the “Moderator Position” And you still havnt answered, so i hope to get a answer from you about the moderator position….

My reply: “I apologise if I did not respond within the timescale you required, but I was unaware that it was necessary to send an immediate reply to a question that has no easy answer. I’ll give you a choice. Either accept the easy answer:

There are no positions available.

Or wait for me to have a look because running the staff of a forum this size isn’t exactly easy. I apologise if I have inconvenienced you in any way by the delay in this response.

Bugging the only guy who can give you a position with numerous messages each day is not going to get you in favour with him. All you do is piss him off and make him not want you on staff.

The only way things could get worse right now would be for a fucking aeroplane to land on my house, Lockerbie style, actually, that might be an improvement.

  1. Arrgh, I used to always worry an aeroplane might fall on my house, but I lived in a high rise flat in London and the planes did fly quite low.
    You get paid how much!!! Corr your rich, you just don’t like your job, its obvious. Live to work, Work to live. If you are going to spend the majority of your life in a place, then think the money for the measley time you have left will make it better, youre obviously gonna be sad.
    Find a place that feels like home, where you don’t have to pretend you like people, where you can get up and leave the office whenever you want and overall you know your not making yourslf miserable. I know your thinking “as if”, but if you don’t look you won’t find it.

    Anyway, I don’t know why i just bombarded your “shit, fuck, wanker bastarding” cos I know thats quite fun. so bye.


  2. It should have said “seventeen hundred pounds less than”, I have corrected the mistake.

    Anyway, feel free to ‘bombard’ whenever you are in the neighbourhood. 🙂
