i've had a lot of rage in me lately. i think it's partly due to sleep deprivation (because of kayla's night wakings - ugh) and partly because of the female curse called a bloody uterus. anyway, this blah mood of mine has caused me to neglect my blog and as i was raging on my way home today, i decided to channel my inner bitch and start a blog series stolen from family guy called what grinds my gears. i'm pretty pissed off right now so this should be a treat for you. welcome to the first edition.
for the most part of this week, my director has kept me isolated from the general public; most likely for the safety of the other employees. when i get like this, i'm like one of those cute monkeys that looks like a big ball of furry fun (not to say that i'm furry but you get my point) but is really just a raging sack of angry hate waiting to explode because the inkeeper has prodded him one too many times or the other monkeys keep stealing his bananas and and he's one nudge away from going beserk and throwing feces at everyone.
what really grinds my gears (i could go on about multiple topics but let's focus here) are lazy motherfuckers in the work place. i was just assigned to a project which i had recently transitioned away from because the company found a permanent resource. and, typical of the company, they need help because they're behind in a lot of tasks which translates to they can't get their shit organized and nobody on the project gives a fuck. when i was originally assigned, my job was to identify and streamline various processes in the company and then document the changes so it can be approved by the executives. when i transitioned to the permanent resource, i gave her everything i had.
during today's update meeting, i was given the same task with the exact same information .... that had not been touched since i did the knowledge transfer. after i wiped the what the fuck? expression off my face and asked why nothing had been updated, there was some mumbling about not having time because there was too much admin work.
uh huh. i see.
so what i'm hearing is that everyone is too fucking lazy to do their job and now they're up shit's creek because they deploy in less than a month and nothing's been signed off. awesome. hey here's an idea: you see that boxy thing on your desk? the one with the screen and that rectangle thing with letters on them? yes, why don't you fire that up and oh i don't know.... use it to actually do some work?
while i don't mind doing the work, i hate the fact that i'm cleaning up other people's messes because they can't or won't do what needs to be done. what i really wanted to say was: maybe if you stopped with all the fuckery or whatever the hell you do, you'd be close to getting this shit done. but i am a professional and if this project goes off the rails, my director would look bad so i'm doing this for him. me, i would rather spend my time on etsy or pinterest.
so yeah, lazy people.... that's what really grinds my gears. now i'm going to go chug a beer.
