I'm going to vent.

I hate my desk job. I HATE IT!
I have to get it off my chest.
When I was first hired here I was told I was going to be doing all this stuff that I am not doing. I was told I would be able to go to live streaming in Waltham, Cambridge, and Boston. I would be doing tons of filing and scheduling. Do you know what I do? I sit at my desk and blankly stare at facebook, read blogs, and play spider solitaire.. while I get talked to because the kitchen isn't clean and we are out of creamer. REALLY? I DON'T EVEN GO IN THE KITCHEN!!!
You know why the kitchen isn't clean Aby? because I am the office manager.. not you're maid! You drink coffee everyday and just throw your mug in the sink and then get mad when there are six unwashed mugs in there. How hard is it to rinse it off and stick it back in the cabinet? Asshole.
He gave me two folders to label on Monday, and handed them back to me on Tuesday and told me he didn't like the position where the letters were... he couldn't read them clearly.
Are we serious right now? You can't read size 24 font typed out because its a little lower on the label then you like? And then OH AND THEN... he said to me "I don't pressure you with a lot of work... the least you could do is not do something half-assed. I don't want to redo them myself but if you are going to do work like this then just tell me." WHAT? WHAAAAAAAAAAAT? IM GOING TO HAVE THE LABEL SPACED TO LOW FOR YOU AND NOW I AM HALF ASSED? FUCK YOU.

I'm sorry for all the swearing on my blog.  I don't like to do that here but I am mad. I am very very mad... and two seconds away from walking out of this door and not coming back.
Anybody know of any place that's hiring???? UGH


  1. Desk jobs can be THE. WORST. I know, because...I currently have one, and have for the past five years. Thankfully I leave early to go art school...which is a blissful escape. But, I'm lucky enough to have tolerable co-workers...the co-workers can save you. I have a friend who's in a position like yours, and the other day I gave her this advice: Stay long enough to get hired elsewhere, then enjoy a new position with employees with souls! :)

    I was not meant to be a 9-to-5 girl, I just know it. You seem like the creative type, too, and I just feel like we're not meant to be office droids!

    Best of luck, and many wishes that your boss can begin to deal with a misplaced label. :)

  2. Thanks bethany! and its true! even if it were a 9-5 it would have to be something where I can be kept busy. I am a busy bee and although I like a small lull in a day to maybe catch up on some blogs or check my email I cannot take 4 hours straight of 4 days a week of it.
    I do hope I am able to find a place where I can use my creativity as well as actually interact with people!
