Yes, I hate you. I don't care if I don't know who you are, you SUCK. All of your opinions SUCK mad donkey dick. You're a useless cocking bastard/bitch with no sense of reality and you smell really bad. Your latest problems are nothing to me because I'm so much better and more important than you. You matter so little to me that I'm not even ranting at you, I'm ranting at everyone. You're not important enough to warrant your own little piece of vitriol. So here they are.

Ten things I hate about YOU:

There it is.

I want to work at a place where I actually like what I do. Is it that hard? Granted what I -know- how to do is be a receptionist/secretary but honestly the work is redundant, there's no excitement to the job. Usually more often then not, I can't stand the place I work at either or the particular company sells products or services that are rather boring to me. Places I've worked for as a receptionist include:

Brokerage Firm
Law Firm
Electrical Insulation Supplier
Natural Stone and tile
Metal stamping shop

When I was 17 I used to work for a veterinary clinic. Which you would think would be exciting to get to see all the animals that come in, but I found it more depressing then enlightening and enjoyable. Watching animals die, watching animals sick, watching what they go through before and after surgery, and watching owners put animals to sleep over trivial things.

But you know if you look in a paper there's never anything cool like "Rockstars Wanted!". But even then, just something that provides some sort of brain food. Brain food like where I come to work, find the work interesting, enjoy taking on projects, etc. They say you need to go to school and get a degree if you want to do that. But why can't you find something before 2/4/6/8 years of schooling? Is it impossible?

I'm not asking to be a Rocket Scientist or even the Rockstar. Just want to find a job that doesn't fit the mold, where I don't dread to go into work every morning cause I know what lies in store for me when I get there.

Granted, the job that I work at now, I have a really cool boss. He's laid back, never demands things, doesn't get up in your koolaid over things. And while my attendance is less to be desired (for tardiness), unless I'm like crazy late all the time, I don't get a word spoken to me about it. All that is rather cool to have, less stress is a bonus. But I make jack shit in pay. So what I have for having a laid back boss, I lack in pay.

I barely make it paycheck to paycheck because not only do I lack in pay, but I get about 50 bucks out of every paycheck taken out for my contribution to my own health insurance. That, and they only do pay raises once a year (I work for a company that has a corporate office in Atlanta and a ton of branches across the states). Apparently you have to be working for the company for a year before you're up for one. When Januaray (the time they do them) came around, I had only 3 months in. So I was passed up.

I have to wait till next January to see if I'm even looked at for a raise. At that time I'll have had a year and 3 months in with the company without any raise. So I'm faced with, do I stay cause I have a cool boss and coworkers? Or do I look for another job that pays more money and try for a job that's actually got more interest in it for me instead of working for a company like this (Electrical Insulation Supplier) where I have no idea about the products we sell, nor do they hold any interest for me?

This is my rant.

Ok right, so you're here. I think I've made it blatantly obvious what this community is and what it's about. If you're unsure, go read the profile for it... cause well, I don't know what else to tell you.

I basically did this for a spot for peeps to just rant about whatever they feel is important to rant about. No holds barred so to say. However, please do not flame other members and if you do at least be creative about it. If you're not creative, then you just suck.

So rant away, I'll come up with a rant at some point, I think I used all my braincells tonight in just figuring out how to set one of these up.
