You can tell, when you have found your calling in life, by the fact that you really don’t want to do anything else. Which is a wonderful thing..trust me.
However, I also believe that when you are working somewhere (that is not your calling), whether it be for necessity (you need to pay the bills) or the fact that you’re just too comfortable and too lazy to go after what you really want in life, the littlest things irritate you and you actually seek out these irritants. When this happens, this is your mind’s way of telling you to get off your butt and go after what you really want in life. Unfortunately, most of us ignore what our mind is telling us and we give into the irritations that we have searched for. When this happens, you become what the scientific community calls, Homo Whiny Ass Bitchy Employee Neanderthalensis. You can tell you are at this stage in your development, when you find yourself saying things like…
- "Management don’t care ‘bout nobody!"
- "I get written up fur breaking da rules that everybody breaks!"
- "This companies so (insert curse word here) cheap!"
- "I got me four job offers this week and I’m so outta here (yet, you’re still here)!
- "I’m so tard of this here place!"
- ..and so on…..
All of these may be ligament complaints, however if you don’t have the wherewithal to do something about it (get off your butt and change your situation), JUST SHUT UP!
By participating in these daily, "bitching out loud" sessions, you’re just making the situation worse. You’re especially making it worse for the other employees around you, who are just trying to make the best of their situation. They actually may like where they’re working. Maybe they just want to do their job, the best that they can, enjoy their day and go home. But, NOPE!!….they have to tolerate your whiny ass bitching sessions, EVERY FREAKING DAY!!!
Do the world a favor, fix your situation or keep your miserableness to yourself.
