getting a job is hard enough as it is.
it’s all unnecessary stress,
a resume has to have “certain keywords” in order to be picked
looking for a job is like a full-time job
you may have to go through 5 interviews plus a speed round
after 2 years of interviewing,
you finally land on a job that hopefully pays well.
it’s not until after the initial training honeymoon phase…
you learn your boss/supervisor/satan is similar to an abusive husband.
instead of clocking you upside the head for making chicken on a tuesday,
he/she/it is a real mentally abusive bastard.
coming to work every day feels like a damn chore.
you don’t want to breathe the wrong way or they’ll talk to you like you’re stupid.
i had to wonder…
Why are jobs so toxic these days?
i didn’t do anything to land the gig i have now.
i didn’t send resumes to anyone.
my head huntress called me for it,
i went to interview and they loved me.
i believed every word they had to say during the initial interviewing phase.
some of it was true.
it’s a pretty laid back gig.
i was typing this up there.
i watched one of the execs here cursing my supervisor out.
“you need to get your FUCKIN shit together.
who THE FUCK do you think this is.
i DON’T GIVE A FUCK what she thinks…”
…and he was directing that vitriol towards her assistant.
this is after the assistant ran to the bathroom in tears.
i don’t have much sympathy for those two because they’re shady,
but to yell at someone like that?
it is borderline abuse.
one of the assistants left because she damn near had a nervous breakdown.
she developed a nervous tick and everything.
i’ll admit i’ve fired back a nice/nasty:
my past jobs/ex friends/wolves trained me for this moment.
i didn’t go through alla that to be a mess now,
