Jamari, I Need You To Come (I NEED YOU TO COME NOW!)

no_more_mr_nice_guy

2016 taught me something.
hell i think my life has all come down to this lesson.
one i had to keep learning over and over:

You can’t be nice to these pineapples

they will take your niceness for weakness.
in the jungles,
the weakest animal is usually a target.
once they do that,
they will drain you for all that you have.
as soon as that’s done,
they will toss you to the side and look for a new supply.
you see the other animals don’t try no fuck shit with a lion.
a little fox tho?
yeah.
my job has done it all that,
but today,
and i had to get them right


so they asked me to come in this weekend to do a project.
it would be paid overtime,
but my weekends are my time.
i told them “no” earlier this week.
they must have not taken that seriously.
foxhole…

you know my boss sent me an email,
CC to mr green and other bosses,
demanding that i come in.
tumblr_inline_mvxhy6GVnF1rt9yvxhe didn’t even ask me nicely either.

“hey jamari,
if you are available,

can you come in on the weekend for us?”

hell off me some incentive.
something!
naw.

“i need you to come in and work.
co worker isn’t coming in and you need to cover.”

just like that.
so i replied back and made sure to CC all of them:

“i’m sorry,
but i have made other plans on my weekend.”

i don’t really have plans,
but that isn’t even the point.
you can’t treat me like shit and then demand shit from me.
the fuck i look like?
i say “yeah”,
go in,
and lose all my self respect in the process.
i got no response from my email.
peace out homie.
i hope they try and let me go over some dumb shit like that.
they will have nightmares over the thor hammer i drop on their ass.

  1. It’s funny how they want to nitpick everything wrong you’re doing but then come rushing to you when they need you to do something for them smh

  2. J, I wish you would have told them that you are still not 100 percent you can barely walk with your back, tell them that it is getting worse. You really need to keep pressing this because they are really going to try to come for your throat now that you have told them where they can go. Be ready now for death match with your boss on Monday. I hope you have been preparing some complaints or been back to the Dr to take FMLA on their asses.

    1. ^he finally replaced my chair yesterday.
      i can’t even play the “back” game since it’s not at my desk.
      it’s okay because got all my paper trail in my personal email.

  3. What would it have hurt for you to work this weekend. You said you were getting paid. And you didn’t have anything to do. I hope you haven’t forgotten the hundreds of post you wrote when you didn’t have s job and was struggling. and didn’t you say you didn’t have anymore days to be off, but you took the day off anyway. Don’t you need that money. I agree, don’t let people run all over you, but don’t be a rebel without a cause, or worse a rebel without a job. I write this with concern not hate.

  4. Yay, the deviant colleague that takes no shit period!! These people flip flop on you and I told you they go crazy without you. Be sure to turn off your phone ASAP. Yes, I see the HAHN got an effect on you.

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
