Katy Perry is hot! Marry me!
Lately my work has been screwing me around and I’m now thinking of quitting. They have asked me to apply for three positions lately, the latest one they said I was definitely top of the list. But I will explain the whole story.
Originally I applied for a position where I would be in charge of a group of people across the state, which I was extremely excited about. After the interview the guy who was currently in the position decided he didn’t want to leave, so I lost that role. Next I applied for the job this other guy was supposed to move into, which was even better for me than the original position. I had an interview for this second position only to find out another person in the office was bored of his own job and wanted this one. So again my interview was for nothing. Then I asked, well if Leon is doing that job now, can I apply for Leons old job? But no because Zoe is going into his position because she knows it already.
However, they assure me they want to use me somewhere but are unsure where they will slot me in. Meanwhile I’m seriously sick of being dicked around and I’m finding I’m wanting out.
What annoys me more than this though is the fact that now they want me to go do work that I don’t want to do, and for less money, to ‘prove’ myself to management. But I have ALWAYS done what I’ve been told. I have gone away to country locations at short notice, driving four hours, working six hours then driving another four hours back home, all in one day! Ive done that on numerous occasions now. I went interstate with less than twelve hours notice for two full working days in order to help them out. I am always doing my share of work and on time, often doing someone else’s work too if they are behind a bit. I have done more than enough to prove my worth and frankly I’m sick of putting myself out, either time or money, in order to help them out or to show them I am worth having around.
It looks to me like this will be a never-ending cycle, they will just keep moving people around to try and make others happy while ignoring the ones who truly are valuable workers. I know I would be better off moving on, but when is enough really enough?
From my experiences I am finding out that feeling, you know when enough is enough because your mind and body just scream out and tell you not to put up with it any longer. I am almost at that point now.
I am a very frustrated worker.
