This also makes me so angry.

One of my managers is trying to get me more engaged.  Unfortunately, the way she is doing this is by having me do really menial tasks.  This, of course, disengages me even further.  Tonight she has me color coding her calendar for the entire month.  I can’t even describe how miserable it’s making me.

On top of this, we had a big admin meeting this morning, and it turned into the same old bitch session it always does - everyone wants more money and less responsibility.  I want to stand up and scream “SHUT UP!  IF YOU DON’T LIKE YOUR JOB, QUIT AND GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!!”  The admins here are spoiled rotten.  We get paid better than almost any admin job out there, I can guarantee it.  Ever since I put my resume online, I’m getting spam from recruiters, and all the admin jobs start at $35,000.  We all make WAY more than that.  They want promotions, they want stock options, they want reward trips - good god, we’re fucking secretaries!!!!!  Get real!!!!  Be thankful your boss isn’t making passes at you with you not being able to do anything about it.  Or, like I said, shut up and quit!

I’m leaving in a few minutes to meet some friends at Planet Rose, the karaoke bar in the village.  I think I’m going to sing the saddest songs I can think of.  “The Sound of Silence”, anyone?


  1. I dunno—personally, I think all employees should ask for as much as they possibly can, especially when working for a major corporation. Keep their feet to the fire, I say!

  2. Some one beat you to the saddest song last night, Cat’s in the Cradle…
