Stupid Peasants(RANT)

At work, about 15 minutes ago, some ass-bag lady in a suit demanded us around to do things that she should have been doing, as if our purpose in life was to wait on her every request. No "thank you", no "please", just straight orders. She gave a look that said it all: "you are here to do my bidding!", nevermind the fact that we were running around like nuts trying to please everyone, and in the middle of all of it, we have this ***** treating us like slaves, pions, peasants, etc. God I hate these people!

Feel better now? Isn't the Internet great? Just go punch the old keyboard; instead of punching the wall like in the old days.

Punched through a wall once...in my sleep. I woke up when my parents came into my room to see what the noise was. I think I could really mess up my keyboard if I punched it.

Back on topic, sound like you could use a quick visit to Dilbert.com. It really does help a little bit.

One of my friends told me one of McDonald's better policies is to require managers to use please and thank you when giving directions. He was told in training he was not obligated to obey an order if it didn't include "please." It helps remind the managers, many of whom have issues, that the fact that they don't have to wear a stupid visor all day doesn't actually give them absolute power.

I've had to deal with these folks before....one actually called me a moron for not knowing how to do international shipping (hello b----, I'm MANUFACTURING....-NOT- shipping)....well finally I snapped after about 30 mins of constant remarks, thrw on the voice recorder on my phone...recorded her talking about my "vertical family tree" and got her fired.

Honestly I'm amazed someone in as nice of a job as her would do something that stupid....suits never impressed me though...same "hairless monkeys", different wig.

It's probably just swelling Merton. It goes away when you leave it alone for a while.
