Is one where you normally like the job, but hate the work ethic of those you work with. I'm in such a situation. In any other country this would be a dream job. I get paid a decent salary, I am trusted with responsibility, and mostly have control over my schedule. I'm depended on for the most challenging of tasks, and I'm never bored. My problem - and unfortunately, it's the one thing I absolutely hate about people in general - is the work ethic of some of those around me. Not all, but some. In my world, I look at the economy and think about how many people are jobless. I also look at how much the company pays me and can't help but want to carry my fair share. So I'm there EVERY DAY. I don't take vacation, because I'm always needed for something or other. I don't call in sick because I don't get sick and I don't whine about a headache or something; I take an Aleve and tough it out. If I'm not on the phone with a customer, not emailing, not developing something and/or not visiting a customer, I'm in the office working on new technology or assisting someone with a project. Granted - I'm single, no children...but I don't think that's any excuse. I'm fairly young, yet no matter where I go I am constantly confronted by people who just seem to drift through life. There are cats who sit on personal calls/text message/Google Chat/Yahoo Chat/AIM Chat/Facebook for at least 3 hours out of an 8-hour day. I'm talking people who walk IN THE DOOR, and their phone rings, and it's their significant other calling to ask how they're doing. Huh? Didn't you just see them when you woke up? Can't you wait until lunch/break? Or better yet, why aren't YOU at work? Then there are cats who take like 8 breaks a day AND a lunch break. Then there are cats who - and this drives me NUTS - will use speakerphone to dial someone who is literally 20 feet away. Cats who need to get a project or document to you so you can finish your job, instead of prioritizing that, will call their girlfriend and talk about absolutely nothing for 30 minutes. Mind you, this is NOT during lunch. Cats who are in such a hurry to leave early that they don't get you the information you need. Cats who don't know how to manage their own appointments, will tell you they don't need you the next day, so you schedule another appointment, then when you're there they call you in a panic because they desperately need you for some appointment that they didn't pay attention to because they were too busy talking to their girlfriend for 30 minutes. Cats who take EVERY MONDAY off so they can recover from Superbowl Sunday or parties or whatever from the weekend. Cats who send emails back and forth about band gigs or weekend parties yet can't respond to work-related emails from customers timely. Cats who can sit and talk about American Idol for an hour yet are incapable of booking an Outlook calendar appointment. Cats who can create a football pool in Microsoft Excel yet can't seem to figure out how to do any work-related documents in the same program. Cats who can tell you the first and last name and stats of every single player of every football, baseball and basketball team in the city, yet can't remember how to do a conference call on their phone. Cats where customers are figuratively throwing money at them, but they can't seem to find the time to get the customer the simple information they need. Yet they always find time to play some stupid YouTube video. I go on and on...but I seriously wish I could locate a job where I love the job AND I'm surrounded by people who are as diligent and dedicated as I.
