Silver Lining

  1. It seems there are lazy and petty people in every office, like total junior-highers. How can there be so many adults walking around with that level of immaturity? How do they even function?

    I don’t know. I mean, most of these people have families of their own, and are the parents. How can you be so immature and still raise a child? Isn’t that a recipe for disaster in the future? Boggles the mind.

  2. The one person that acts like an adult and tries to get all the work done on time is usually the person that gets dumped on. I feel your pain.

    It makes sense, in a sick sort of way. I mean, who else do you go to? I “lucked” into this responsibility, though; because I do the support for the system, ti became mine when there wasn’t anyone else to do it.

  3. I’ve learned from experience that people who work hard don’t necessarily get rewarded. Unless you count more responsibility as a reward. The more you do the more people dump on you. The less you do or the more slowly and stupidly you work, the less responsibility people will trust you with. Ergo, incompetence is rewarded in the average workplace. It sucks.

    Truly, it does. And this person’s not “incompetent” really, she’s just bilking the excuses. My boss and I laughed yesterday about how she’s literally running out of excuses one by one as she presents them and he can find solutions to the “problems” she’s offering up as reasons for not doing her work. Eventually (June 6th), she will be doing this full time, period.

  4. I feel for you. I hate it when people dump crap on you. I’ve learned, the more I act like I don’t know how to do something, the less people ask of me and I can give what I want…more some days, less others. It keeps me sane.

    Nice. 🙂 It’s good to have a system, y’know?
