We Fooled the Government

Today my supervisor needed me to help her (and then she got distracted considering her mental health and ADHD issues) because she basically fooled the government. There are caseloads of confidential information from March, April, May, and June that were not “finalized”, but she managed to make it look like she completed the work. 

So what are the consequences if I rat her out? Management is always buddy buddy with each other, and sadly, management is incompetent.

Why The Losers are Unpopular

We have this luncheon at work were people hate attending, and no one but my supervisor cares about. She went down the list where people RSVP’ed “No” and asked why they weren’t coming. She was upset that we had a guestlist of about 30 people, instead of 100. 

Instead of taking the time to reflect on why people aren’t coming, how about she takes the time to actually complete her work, which has been backlogged for about a few months. My supervisor uses these luncheons as an opportunity to talk about herself. Seriously, she spends the whole 2 hours speaking about herself, and then wonders why we have to follow up like losers and beg people to come to our luncheons. Sorry old white lady (or unladylike person), but no one cares. People around her don’t care, that is why she is lonely, and spends time at the office to avoid the reality of her miserable life.

The Wonderful Absence

So my supervisor has been absent for a week, and the office isn’t falling apart at all. In fact, people are extremely happy because we can be productive, efficient, and get work done in a timely fashion. That is probably why my supervisor won’t retire at all, she knows the secret. The secret is that she doesn’t do anything, and if she leaves, it is not like the company will suffer. In fact, we will probably thrive.

Work Hard, Break Harder

My supervisor has been in trouble a few times for not allowing meal breaks or a 10 minute break in general. She keep explaining to me about the tasks that I was going to complete. You know, the tasks that are so easy that she can do it herself but she chooses not to? Since I was overdue for a short 10 minute break, I told her I needed to go on break. She continues to explain the task to me, and I repeated myself that I needed to go on break. She screams that she heard me the first time. Ok, so you if heard me the first time, then don’t continue to talk to me about work. No wonder her husband left her. And no wonder people at my job hate her. 

Well, time to go file a complaint with the government so she can get a notice in the mail for violating meal breaks…again!

Bad Bad Work Ethics

So my supervisor seriously delegates all her responsibilities to me, so she doesn’t hold herself accountable if something goes wrong. I noticed that within the older generation that I’ve worked with. And they bash us younger generation for lack of appreciation for our jobs, but from observation, I find that we work much harder to prove ourselves. There’s a woman I worked with, who would pass on all her difficult cases to other staff. Her age is early 40s. Someone would walk away from their desk, and she takes her challenging cases, and puts it on that persons desk while they’re gone. Same goes for my supervisor. She’ll have me make calls to Directors, Investors, etc, because she doesn’t want to bear the responsibility herself. Fortunately for me, the important people like me because I’m not a problem.

Another thing that my supervisor did is that she sent an email to upper management stating that work is done, while I was in the process of doing data entry, and the truth is it wasn’t done. An employee that she copied an email to informed me about this. So I forwarded the email that she received from my supervisor, to her SUPERVISOR, and stated that work was never done in the first place, but I’m working on it, and it’ll be completed by deadline. My supervisor saw that, and she tells me to next time don’t send any emails to her supervisor, let her do it. 

So are all old white women this unethical and lazy??

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?

Bank of America Intern (not employee) Dies

When I saw the headlines about a death of an intern, I was in complete awe and shock. It is believed that the cause of death is sleep deprivation, and it’s unfortunate that this kid was only 21. I really hate the fact that it is currently an “Employer’s Market”. Everyday, I get the “be thankful you have a job” spiel. Because of this economy, it gives management (especially mine) the ability to abuse their power, make everyone do all the work for a small check (and in some cases such as an intern, NO CHECK).

My condolences to his family.
