Take This Job and Shove It, but Let Me Keep It

Have you ever been so motherfucking angry, that you wanted to walk away from a job you so desperately need to pay your bills?

That was me Tuesday. Oh, and Monday.

I normally keep everything in. One, because I’m used to the situation, and my boss. Two, because I have to have this job. In this economy I’d be hard pressed to find another one, especially at my age.

Three…I’ve been here for ten years.

This is all kinds of fucked up.

It’s not like I make a fortune. Hell, I haven’t had a raise in nine years, but the man helped me out a lot when I got in trouble with money, but…

I should know by now that he just he just cares about himself.

You think I’m kidding about finding his shit? You would be wrong.

I’ve been in Administration for over 25 years. I know what I’m doing. Why must he question every step? Why do I let him make me so mad?

Truth be told, who do I let him make my cry? I’m not a crier people. Old fucking Yeller doesn’t make me cry, but damn. So frustrating.

I know he does this every once in a while, you know like once a month. Huh, now, that I think about it…he has PMS! No he doesn’t.

He’s turning 67 on Thursday, he wants total control, even though he says he wants to turn shit over. 

I guess this time…he just got to me.

I just wanted to say, “Look, I’m going home now. Let’s see how you fair by yourself for the rest of the day.”

My home phone would be ringing off the hook. The man just does not realize what the fuck I do for him.

He did tell me today that when he dies, he wants to be in the casket with his cell phone, so he can bother me! I didn’t laugh.

This is why I drink. Well, no, no it’s not, but you get my drift, right?

Well, I feel better now. Fuck this shit, right? Right!?

I’m good.

Maybe you should make a VooDoo Doll of your boss and do horrible things to it all day long. Stab it, throw it into boiling water, stomp on it and whatever else. You'll feel better.

Jay: Or I could just skip the doll part...

Syrup of Ipecac in a milk shake would be awesome. He'll never taste it and the ensuing projectile vomiting will be a hoot. Cheers!!


Beth said...

Matt: True dat, my friend, true dat.

Knight said...

Fuck that shit. The man needs to learn boundaries and trust that you can do your job. My boss gets like this too.
Ipecac would be funny until he makes YOU clean up his mess. I say go with laxatives.

Beth said...

Knight: Suck doesn't it? Hmmm...laxatives. I'm on it.

MysteryChick said...

I'm with Knight, bake up some Ex-Lax brownies. Just make sure you eat from a different corner of the pan from where you put the Ex-lax.

Beth said...

Chick: The man does have a sweet tooth...I hope the hell y'all have bail money;)

Grow some tubes my friend and tell your boss how he makes you feel. My daughter said the same thing about her old job -- micro mangagement shit or something. I hate being looked over all day by my boss. Hell WTF did you hire me for? Leave me alone before and let me do my job for heavens sakes. Do what my neighbor said she did to her female sergant in the Army. A group of soldiers got together and knocked on Serg's door, throw a bag over her head and shoved her faced into the toilet. If you are the physical type like me. Cheers B!!

Bobby: Can you come to Ohio? Seriously though, I tell him to get away from me before I kill him all the time. He usually says, "okay". Unfortunately it doesn't last long:)

Control freaks are scared of something. Find out what it is.

He probably suffers from some form of mental illness. Can't quite put my finger on which one, though. Suggest getting him coffee or water and then start spitting in his shit. You did see "The Color Purple" - didn't you? Gross I know. lol! But whats' a girl to do? Cheers!!

Beth said...

Bobby: What he suffers from is "Im the most important person in thw world" syndrome. Ha! You're funny;)
