Leah is PISSED! Talk about disgruntled. She would love to slap pretty much everyone and I certainly support it.
Hater: What’s your job title?
Leah System Administrator, Web Services
Hater: Why do you hate working in general?
Leah: I don’t hate working. I strongly dislike certain tasks that take over the things I do like about work.
Hater: What do hate about your current job?
Leah: I hate that I am smarter, more educated, well-liked, but I make the least in comparison to my male teammates who take month long vacations in a middle of a project and/or work 2 hours a day and then disappear in the middle of the work day.
And then all my colleagues ask every 10 minutes, “Is __ here?”
So my job which is suppose to be design website and maintain IT system has boiled down to all admin stuff and answering the question of where my 2 colleagues are every 10 minutes.
Hater: Alrighty then- I feel like you have told someone off at work. Have you?
Leah: I tell everyone off at work…daily and then report myself to HR
Hater: I’m cracking up over here! Have you ever been written up?
Leah: I have had things put in my file. I have never been written up.
I think it’s b/c I don’t hesitate to throw around my minority status in this very super white organization. I had one coworker tell HR that I refused to help him build his standing desk that he bought from Amazon. I told him that I wasn’t Jesus, and my background is in web design not carpentry. That wasn’t very well rec’d.
Hater: If you could slap anyone at your job right now who would it be?
Leah: It’d be a collective slap of several people lined up…starting with the Senior managers
Hater: Do you fantasize about quitting?
Leah: No. I spend every Friday applying for other jobs and improving my resume. It’s not fantasy; it’s reality.
Hater: AHAHAHHAHA! Thanks. Would you like to remain anonymous?
Leah: Yes please until I find another job then you can put my full name with a picture of me shitting on the energy industry
Hater: Okay, will do. I am literally laughing out loud! I can’t stop
Leah: Alright…now I am leaving to go on interview.
