I’ve become so paranoid lately. Every glance or scowl makes me think they’ve talked about me, or laugh about me when I’m not around. It seems the more they talk about me, the more I become just like the sort of alien they describe–antisocial, angry, unfriendly–an outsider. I can’t trust anyone and I keep to my business, but the glances and mutterings and false smiles as they greet me bother me and make me nauseous. I often feel like vomiting. Are they all laughing at me? I’m afraid to get close to anyone who seems nice because what if they start to get outcasted just for being associated with me? Or I’m afraid that they’re just pretending to talk to me, but are really just putting on fake smiles while believing all they hear about me. Why should it even matter? Why does this sort of thing make me feel like I’m suffocating? All I want to do is work peacefully. But everyone seems afraid of me, or avoidant, as though I have leprosy. I can’t breathe. They all talk talk talk talk talk. Talk about me. Talk about each other. Talk about bosses. Talk about things that don’t even concern their work, like “guess who’s divorcing who” or “guess who’s still single even at 30”.Continue reading
Job: Medical clerk
Hi I work at a hospital as a medical clerk. The first thing I noticed was the environment. No windows – I feel claustrophobic. It’s full of people. When I first started this job I didn’t like my boss, she shouts and is annoying. The coworkers are backstabbers gossipy chatter boxes that don’t shut up for a second. I keep getting mountains of workload and this coworker who all she does is sit and be lazy keeps ordering me what I do. I had enough of this shit hole, it’s the worst job ever extremely depressing. The patients all they do is complain and are nasty.
I am so fed up with this job. Minimum wage, yet I have to take tons of responsibility because the director keeps failing to take his. If I’m missing receipts, because she loses them, or gives them to me six months after the financial year has been closed, then she always rather blames me for it, ‘oh I’m sure I have given you this’ etc. I very rarely make mistakes, but when I do I own up to it, and she goes blue in the face and becomes rather angry and swearing. Often these aren’t even mistakes, they are spanners in the works because I could not get her to clarify why she keeps messing up prices. She also becomes angry if she thinks I’m turning up late (but forgot to tell me to come in earlier) and assumes it’s my fault regardless. I actually feel sorry for her sometimes because I think she’s going to have a heart attack, but I’m fed up and I don’t want to be bullied. Lastly, he always complains about his ‘cash flow’ but he never thinks of our wages that are two months behind. Not to mention his creditors that are six months behind. But this is just his way. Surely ‘deep down’ he is a Buddha. I want a better job. It’s so bloody hard to find anything good these days. I wish the roles were different, i.e. that she needed me more than I do. And, I forgot to say his partners in crime are terrible too. They do nothing all day (they run four companies), chat and watch videos, go out for meals instead of working, and they put all their private expenses through the company. Very frustrating.
First of all, fuck you Ian you fat pompous twat. This company is fucked up. I’ve had enough of every one of you. The company’s logo should be ‘I’m alright Jack’. So called supervisors and managers don’t give a fuck about the bullshit and hard work that you have to go through just to get the fucking job done but hey, as long as they’re ok. This place is a fucking mess. I’m going very soon, job or no job and you can do the work yourselves, if you’re capable. Better still, get some other mug to put up with this bullshit, while you sit on your arses not giving a fuck about anyone else, that would suit you better. The future IS bright, knowing that you need me more than I need you. Bring on the bad attitude meetings!
I hope you write everyone up that is late twice in one week consistently…must be nice to pick on folks because they called you out about your lack of being a gentleman.
