Okay. I’ve always been told that weighing ones options is a good idea before making any rash decisions. Ya’ll wanna help? Let’s list the pros and cons of my new job and see how things stack up.
2. Close to home
3. Free coffee
4. Good bathrooms. There is a really loud exhaust fan that automatically goes on when you turn on the lights – this makes for a poop-friendly environment. Go ahead, bust a grunty – no one can hear!
1. It is sucking out my will to live.
2. Cube farm.
3. Cold calling and computer sales. (yawn)
4. Have to clock in and out. Can you imagine? I’m salaried for Pete’s sake.
5. Office politics.
6. The location sucks. Sure, it’s close to home but it’s not close to anything else. Seriously, we’re in a warehouse next to a trailer park.
7. I am trapped in a room with the same 6 people every day. They are nice people, but I am still stuck day in and day out without seeing a new face. I have been here 9 days and pretty much know all that I need to about each of them.
8. I fucking hate office work. Mind numbingly dull.
Well, there you have it. Double the cons over the pros. I am going to give this one more week. If in one week things don’t dramatically improve I will collect my first paycheck and simultaneously turn in my notice. I owe my friend who got me this job the benefit of the doubt.
This morning I had a meltdown at the kitchen sink and poor Johnny just looked at me bewildered and helpless. We can’t start our mornings like that. It’s no good for anyone.
John and I are a team though and we’ll work this out. I intend to keep looking elsewhere for work. It’s easier to find a job when you already have one, after all.
At this point, I’m about ready to don a hairnet and ask folks if they want to supersize their order.
