Things pissing me off today….

Oh were do I begin. Ok here we go, I just need to rant:

-Yesterday while updating my Contact IV, which is our client tracking system, I realise I am now at 56 clients with no sign of things slowing down. At this rate I will have 70 clients by summers end. Oh and the next co-worker down from me who is also Full Time has 30, so yes, I currently have 26 more clients then anyone in the company. This pisses me off, cause were paid the same, we should be working equally as hard.

-This morning I get to work at 9am, we are supposed to open the centre to the public at 9am, this is not my job. I had client appointments to prepare for that were scheduled for 10 and 11. However, the centre is not open and there are people waiting outside. So once again ( this happens ALOT) I oppened the centre and sat at the desk for 10 minutes until the dude scheduled to work the desk comes in. This guy is ALWAYS late and leaves early and no one says anything to him and it pisses me off. What if I wasen’t here, we just open late all the time? Pretty sure that our funders would not be fond of that. We are funded to provide a service after all.

-Sitting in the kitchen at 9:30 having a drink of water before my 10am appointment, talking about husbands and money and how I have none. A co-worker (READ: really nasty hateful women through and through, just layers of meaness) tells me today is payday and I say, yes but my mortage is due on the 15th, as is my student loan and life insurance payments. Thus $1100.00 comes in and $1050 goes out the same day, leaving me with no money. She starts talking about how I make more then her (Yes WELL I have 6 years of university under my belt, so screw you) then she says your just lucky, they should have never started you at that salary, no one else started at that salary. I am SO PISSED at this fucking comment. Bitch, who are you to decide what I am worth? I have two languages, 8 years experience and alot of post secondary education, I am a damn hard worker and damn good at what I do. I am not making much more the people comming into this job with no education. (I made 45k in Toronto, here I make 37.5K, my co-worker mentioned above has 1 year complete of her degree and the same amount of experience but has been with the company 6 years and she make 38k) I am worth MORE then 37k, so bite me. It makes me sooo angry how Education is becoming so undervalued. Do you think it was easy? I studied damn hard and I have 40k in debt to get to this level of knowledge and you tell me it means nothing. That I should get paid the same as someone with no education. Why bother getting an education at all then? We should just all become uneducated as a society, no one goes to post secondary anymore and then other countries will kick our asses because we will to stupid to matter. Like really. I worked so hard for this, recognize bitches!!!

-Then my co-workers start talking about babies, and how my boss started feeding her baby pablum at 2 weeks old cause he was hungry all the time, and the doctor told her not to and she said to him, your not the one waking up feeding him every 3 hours???
Then they talk about how formula is not good (agreed) that baby’s raised on Carnation milk and sugar with vitamin drops are just as healthy. Carnation milk is half the price of formula and all that. Not one mention of breastfeeding and how breastmilk is FREE and way better then milk from a cow’s tit instead of a human, stored in a can, processed in a factory with synthetic vitamins added. When they did finally talk about breastfeeding they were like, oh well there are these people who nurse their babies after they have teeth and that is just crazy. I spoke up and said, my friends nursed babies with teeth and just taught them not to bite. They just felt this was crazy and once a baby has teeth it can start chewing solid food and dosen’t need to be nursed anymore. I realised there was no changing their minds, despite my thinking babies start teething at 3-4 months, are you gonna quit nursing that early?

-Then I see my clients, all is well, I go pee before lunch and some fucking moron wiped menstral blood on the damn wall of the staff washroom…..WHO WOULD DO THIS? Oh let me just change my tampon here, opps I got blood on my fingers. Rather then rinse them or use toilet paper to wipe them, I will smear it on the wall for everyone’s enjoyment. ARG!

Ok that’s all for now. But that’s plenty. I am bitchy today. Happy with my husband and new bebe and home and garden, and guests comming this weekend…but work is making me GRUMPY as hell. I need to start thinking about alternatives and keeping my eyes peeled for other opportunities after this bebe’s mat leave is up ( January 2011 πŸ™‚ ) I know it’s far away, but I deserve more. I need to get a job in the Government Office and make 3x what I do now, I am so done with settling in my Career.

Ok now back to happy thoughts. πŸ™‚ thanks for letting me vent. Hope I don’t offend anyone, I just needed to get that off my chest.

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. And dude, the menstrual blood on the stall wall? That is fucking disgusting. What. the. fuck. That is like insane asylum shit right there!
    Totally reminded me of Marquis de Sade and how when they took away his pen and paper and everything else in his cell, he’d write with his shit on the walls. Except, you know, without the brilliance πŸ™‚

  2. Phew, no wonder you are considering finding another job! Seems like you do twice the work for half the pay! I am like you – strong work ethic and hard worker – I thikn it’s even harder on us when we work with lazy, unmotivated, self-entitled colleagues :/
    I fully trust you’ll find a position that fully utilizes your potential and youre compensated as such after mat leave is up.
    But I can’t help but squee in excitement over you being a mom, the best job of all πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    • I REALLY wish there was a way my family afford for me to be at home for 2 years at least. It’s not possible for now, at least I get 1 year of paid mat leave that will surely help.
      Secretly, I wish we could move to Moncton, 3 hours away, to be closer to my family and they could help soooo much, but I know Dave would hates Moncton…and I am not a huge fan myself, but cost of living is less and then there’s as I said, the huge family. Maybe someday I can convince him to sell and buy there.

      • Hey you know, once bebe#2 is here, he might change his mind, you know? So much changes when a baby is born about your perspective, it’s like your eyes OPEN finally. Especially after a loss. Not only do they open, but the fog lifts πŸ™‚
        I know how you feel, because we had planned on me staying home for at least a year… but now with these changes happening, I need to go back to work. Fortunately, I will have my mum to help out with Sofia otherwise I don’t know what I’d do.

      • Only thing is Dave dosen’t make enough to pay the mortage, car payment, gas, grocery’s, various insurances, and also cover my studen’t loan..which i can’t get interest releif from bc Dave earns to damn much, if I was single I could cause I would not be working, but they look at family income. I hate that catch 22.

  3. Fucking coworkers, such assholes. I don’t know what’s wrong with anyone, sometimes I feel like the majority of people are crazy and there are just a very select few of us who aren’t. But I guess that makes us crazy.
    Sometimes education works in the opposite ways though. Like this girl at my work is 21, has her MBA already but no experience. But because she has her MBA she’s getting 70k+ a year.
    I don’t have a B.A. BUT I have 10 years of experience, and I had to fight to get a bit over 40. It’s such a ridiculous society.

  4. God, these people make me want to destroy things. It feels like you’ve described my typical day. Working with a bunch of ignoramos and having to deal with clients that do discusting things in the washrooms. I feel your pain Jaime. *hugs*

  5. Ok, the blood was just gross. *gag* I just don’t get what would motivate a woman to do that.
    Rebecca’s first tooth broke through when she was six months old. No way was I going to stop nursing her then. If it is worth anything, she is almost 20 months old now and we still nurse twice a day. Carnation milk… ew.
    I hope your day gets better. =)

  6. ZOMG, Jaime, don’t u know mai menstrual blood on that stall waz ART!!!!! like, for realz, yo!
    LMAO
    Uh-huh. How fucked up! At least it wasn’t poop?
    Also, I’d have snapped my head off — Carnation milk? Whoa. Formula is bad enough, but at least someone took some kind of time to make sure it was “safe” and balanced right. Ugh. Making your own formula is just… So fucking irresponsible (and um, stoopid. Breastmilk = free and better!)

    • Ya i guess back in the day people would do this.
      No one else seemed surprise, Carnation Milk, Sugar and Vitamin Drops….
      I just had no idea.
      Also as I said. Breastmilk is FREE and always warm and ready.

  7. carnation milk? are you fucking kidding me? there’s like, nothing good in carnation milk. these people have kids?
    anyway, had to get that off my chest. im sorry you had such an annoying crappy day.

  8. HOLY CRAP what a day! glad you got all that stuff out. good lord!

  9. Oh God, just picturing menstrual blood on the wall is making me gag over here.
    Hope your day gets better! Give ’em hell, and all that.
