Black to Blame

What’s aggravating lately are the Ferguson protest… it makes me wonder why certain races are always quick to defend their own kind despite overwhelming criminal proof.

I think bias and stupidity occurs in all color, shapes, and sizes. Going back to what this blog is about, it’s about my dead end job. People look at my resume and scoff because I work at a non-profit, which makes me hard to hire. But I should be thankful for a dead end job.

My supervisor is an old, wrinkly, dumb blonde. The receptionist we have is an angry black women. Luckily these ungraceful women have personalities to clash with each other…sometimes. The angry black women, who is lazy as well, passes a phone slip to my supervisor…and she passes the buck to everyone. My supervisor has me walk the phone slip back to the receptionist with a message, which I relayed to her. Then the receptionist comes back and asks my supervisor something, which I already relayed the message, but the receptionist said I didn’t. I wanted to punch and kick her. She is black, poor, and miserable, the justice system would have been against her anyways.

Another annoying thing that my supervisor does (well she is annoying everyday which is why her husband left her) is that she writes a post it note telling me to make a phone call in addition to a script. In the time that she wrote the note, she could of have made the phone call herself. I ignored the first request because I was busy, then she writes on the post it notes that she needs the call done ASAP. Then do it yourself you wrinkly dumb blonde. Well, being that she is miserable and everyone around her has left, she can spend her pathetic Thanksgiving herself.

Stressing (Stepping) Down

My supervisor gives me a load of her work, and her reasoning behind this is that “the workload is too stressful”. All the work really entailed was making a few phone calls, connecting the dots with those phone calls and scheduling appointments. This position she holds is too stressful for her, to the point where her office is extremely messy and she lacks time management skills. If her work is supposedly too stressful, she should consider stepping down. It is her job to do her own work.  Being that she is extremely lonely, and spends nights at the office (I am talking about not leaving until midnight), stepping down would be a blow to her identity and ego. A co-worker pointed out that she walks around the office thinking she is some upper class person, when she isn’t (look at the car she drives, and the same clothes that she wears every day). 

Now imagine the president of the United States handing his duties to others because it was too stressful for him. Now this is why our company fails at everything and has a high turn over.

The Owner’s Pet

I worked for an owner of an extremely small company a few years back. On the first day of the job, she had me sign a lunch waiver form, so I had days where I worked a whole 8 hours (or more) without a full lunch break. She was also extremely cheap. There was only a staff of 4, and she never gave us health insurance, but stated she provides “disability insurance” just in case we get injured. This was all on minimum wage salary.

We were also her dog watcher, which was not part of my job description. No where in her job posted did she say “must be comfortable with animals”. One day, her dog urinated all over the kitchen, and when I informed her, the response was “SO WHAT, THEN CLEAN UP THE MESS”. Then she proceeds to tell me I don’t have a good work ethic before I didn’t clean up her dogs mess on the spot.

Am I in the wrong?
