Poison Workplace

I like my job, but not my workplace.  It seems to attract administrators and managers that are more interested in psychodrama and personal power than doing quality work.  The thing that keeps me going is the fact that I'm smart enough to leave and move on to something more healthy before the place swallows me up.  I just don't have any patience for silly games.

I have run my race, but still like to work.<br />
The young guns where I work get so caught up in this me thing.<br />
And the same thing the whole environment is spoiled, and quality<br />
and real communication goes by the wayside.<br />

I feel you on that one. Here people want to be all up in your business. They are more concerned what some one else is or is not doing and then want to go tell on them. I had one girl try to get me fired I told the owner she said she wasn't. There are favorites up here. I work hard and well and I get treated like crap. The others who don't do anything and have a bad attitude with the guests and co workers get a pat on the back. I did apply for another job that I am going to love. Just have to wait. It is a state job. People try to get others fired. I don't have time for that. I do what I have to do and go home. I don't get treated right here. It is all good. Because when I leave they will miss me and then realize how much of an asset I was. I have guests that tell me that all the time. I had one guest call me from Iraq. I make this lady alot of money. Let me change that. God uses me and I make the choice to still do a great job because if it was not for God I would not be working at all so what I do I do for Him Amen

Go for it, cuz I feel the same way and the only thing we can do is move on. And its for the better. Good Luck keep your head up

You shouldn't have to play headgames with co-workers or bosses. That stuff should be behind you in the adolescent years. *Sigh* I guess it's proof that a lot of people just don't grow up.<br />

There are little social circles at my place of employment and there's always a power struggle between them. Because I've already declared myself a neutral party, I'm always a prime target for this. It takes everything I have sometimes to not let it get to me.
