Clarification

Just to clarify yesterdays whiney post a bit, it's not really the job I hate. As far as jobs go, it's not so bad. The boss leaves me alone, I never have anyone watching over my shoulder. The environment that I spend the majority of my time in while I'm there is what's causing my grief.
Could I look for another job? Sure I could but lets face facts. I'm 53 years old, I won't get the same pay somewhere else and I would have to give up 3 weeks vacation. I've been there 18 years and I highly doubt another job is in my future unless I either get fired or the store closes.

It's just time to put my big girl panties on and get over it. From time to time it gets to me and I need to let it out.

  1. I understand exactly what you say Ann...for time to time we all need to crib, feel sorry for ourselves and generally whine and whimper!! I just went through the phase myself recently but soon reality catches up and I am fine once again!!

  2. I think it's a big plus that you boss leaves you alone! I've had a job where my boss was breathing down my neck daily and even called me on my days off!

  4. Sometimes the people you work with are more than you can take. I so remember. Don't you just wish they would quit and be replaced by awesome people. Yes, me too.

    Have a terrific day. Big hugs to you and scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

  7. At this point is it possible to shake up the environment? Maybe some change would do everyone some good and I don't mean losing jobs but changing duties or roles (no pun intended), etc. Hopefully something helps make it a little more enjoyable to go to work but maybe it's because you just want to hurry home to Gibbs! :)

  9. Sometimes "venting" helps. I know we aren't supposed to complain especially when so many people are unemployed or homeless etc...so we should count our blessings but I do recall when I worked at my last job I felt much the same way that you do. I've been fortunate that my hubby was able to earn enough that I was able to quit working but it's been a very (tight) squeeze financially so I can relate to your dilema. I like the cute turkey punch you used here but I must say I "try" not to over indulge on holiday meals.

  10. Don't feel bad about venting. I get it. And you are certainly entitled to it. I'm in the same situation. I pretty much call my own shots, so it is hard to leave. But then there are those co-workers......ugh.
