That's why you're seeing me online right now. I'm just BLAH with my job this week. I don't think I need a vacation either....just a sabbatical or a new job

How are things going with your job otherwise, Susie?

At least you have access to a computer and can surf the net while you're at work. Certainly not the case when you work in retail like me.
post #8 of 27
Yeah, we're even allowed to surf the net, but I got sniped at for being online "working another job" which was an assumption because I'd minimize the page when someone came by, since people just don't understand a cat obsession... so even when I told them I don't even have a second job.. I wasn't believed.. they assumed I was doing transcription because I was typing. I was like, I don't spend any more time typing than all of you spend on personal phone calls.

Anyway, my job is super boring over the summer too... my attorney is out the next two weeks, was out for a week last week..... half of our department is out on vacation.. all I've had to do most of the summer is a whole bunch of nothing. I've even caught up to all my filing, rearranged all the filing at my desk, reorganized things, organized all my saved emails, etc...

Hi Susie! My job is super boring too! I'm glad you were able to sneak on TCS for a little while!

I come onto TCS everday at work...because I get so bored! My boss's think I am CRAZY- because all they see on my screen is cats!
post #11 of 27
Right now, I feel the same as you about my job. So, I asked my boss for the fiscal year off -- needless to say, he didn't share my sense of humour.

Precisely why I hid mine, lol. And the typing, you see, was me posting to TCS.

The job stinks Kenz, although the girls are starting very very slowly to let me into some of the conversations I've never worked with a bunch of more immature women in my life. I'm just keeping it until Jerry's surgery is over on September 10 and he's heeled and then I'm off to sending out resumes again. I do NOTHING all day because they all say they're too busty to show me anything. Try to look busy when your out in the middle of everyone! it's impossible. I am sure I'm not supposed to be looking at TCS or personal email or anthing, but at this point, I don't care! I've done all I can!

I sympathize...they must be sisters to my crew. I was about to quit four weeks ago and my attorney spent an hour trying to convince me there were other routes... although he said he'd give me a glowing recommendation.. I finally agreed to give it a few more weeks.

Do you feel like...well, it's like here, at this job, this is the only place I've ever been reprimanded.. they make me feel like I'm inadequate, treat me like I'm too stupid to keep up with them.. one will show me how to do something one way, and then the other comes along and says no no no no *that's* not how we do it, that's wrong! You should know your job by now.. do you get that crap too? I work with a bunch of backstabbing witches, ugh!

It is sad because we come to work to somewhat socialize in an environment we're suppose to enjoy. Then half the time we get the people that just never mentally graduated high school.

Unfortunately that's why I keep to myself most times. The last place I worked at was great socially. However here, if you think women are bad at backstabbing, men are 10x worse IMO. Women just do it because they're insecure. Men do it to get ahead in their careers.

I've found that generally men will backstab you as much as women, but the good thing about men is they'll do it to your face.. instead of the stealth and dagger routine...

Sheesh! And I'm working with women... one is over 50, one is in her 40's, and one is exactly 4 days younger than me (she's the department manager).

Well, today wasn't toooooo tooooo bad. It will be the end of my 4th week tomorrow......if they could just find more things for me to do, it would help. I can handle them not talking to me very much. I just hate being bored. At my last job, I was very bored too, but we had so much freedom there. TCS all day! Not here. IF I go on, I have to sneak.

We're actually permitted to web surf here, provided it's not overzealous... it's even in our handbook. We are not, however, permitted to check our home emails.

That's very true...I love sitting in the mostly male meeting and having information about my personal life getting brought up or my ideas being stolen I just suppress my temper at that point.

No TCS Freedom?! We have a department manager like that here. In fact his department is only one locked down because [before I came here] he thought too many people were surfing. It's actually funny [IMO] to watch the logs the day before he goes on vacation and the days that is his away. The 3 people allowed to have internet access basicallly triple their surfing time

IMO and being in charge of monitoring the Internet access, I agree. If you're going to a chat site or booking flights for your next vacation, I don't care.

However if you're watching a game on ESPN, I'll more than likely boot you off for 5 minutes.
