A man asked his wife what she’d like for her 40th birthday. “I’d love to be six again,” she replied. On the morning of her birthday, he got her up bright and early and off they went to a local theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park: the Death Slide, the Screaming Loop, and the Wall of Fear, everything there was! Wow! Five hours later she staggered out of the theme park, her head reeling and her stomach upside down. Right to a McDonald’s they went, where her husband ordered her a Happy Meal along with extra fries and a refreshing chocolate shake.
Then, it was off to a movie – the latest Disney and what a fabulous adventure! Finally, she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed. He leaned over and lovingly asked, “Well, dear, what was it like being six again?” One eye opened. “You idiot, I meant my dress size.” The moral of this story is: When a woman speaks and a man is actually listening, he will still get it wrong.
Did we go from a nation that could steel its spine for the greater good to a nation of complete pussies? we have taken a nation forged by hard men and women and made it into a latte-sipping, metrosexualized place where the slightest offencive thing is grounds for a lawsuit. Why is it that so many people idolize cops and soldiers who do whatever it takes to get the job done on the big screen and then endlessly complain about the men who do that dirty, tough and chaotic work in the real world?
And How did our political discussions and much of our culture become dominated by whichever pathetic wimps are fastest to cry out that they’re offended or that someone else is being insensitive? Whatever happened to manning up Whatever happened to taking pride in supporting yourself and your family? Whatever happened to the nation that rewards doers, not the people who are most creative about coming up with new ways to claim life is unfair? If America’s future is going to be as bright as its past, we need a lot more tough people who can solve their own problems and a lot fewer wimpy, whining children masquerading as adults.
From 1958 to 1962 the genius above gave an order called the Four Pests Campaign part of a group of plans to help his peons in his country move forward. The four pests to be eliminated were rats, flies, mosquitoes, and sparrows. I’m all for eliminating flies but sparrows really buddy ? So his slaves started killing sparrows by the millions. What did the sparrows ever do to hurt anyone ? Apparently they ate grain planted in the fields and this affected their food output.
So less grain eaten by sparrows and crop production increased exponentially. NOT ! since they started killing sparrows by the shitload another problem arises. Locust started eating all their crops like crazy. They ate so much crop product that it started the great famine that ended killing about 45 million Chinese. Things got ugly people started eating each other started eating rats. They would kill people to eat them. Some crazy parents would kill and eat their own children.
human body parts eaten during chinese famine
Eventually they figured out that the sparrows would eat locust and keep the population in check so the crops would grow. That was Mao’s bad so he then changed the campaign to kill rats, flies, mosquitoes, and bedbugs. It’s crazy how one species taken out of the food chain can affect things so bad. Some of the people that died were kept hidden from the government so families or friends could continue collecting their ration of food. The bodies would just start rotting away and hungry people would have to fight rats to eat the decomposing corpses. Eww that shit is gross but you got to do what you got to do.
The other day at work I lost it popped like a blister in the sun. For a year now stress has accumulated and instead of releasing the stress or dealing with it I just swallow it like a bitter pill and keep on trucking. This all started when an ex of mine got promoted as my supervisor. Yes I know the saying don’t dip your pen in company ink but the person who became my boss is Alicia.
Yes the very same one who has anger management issues. The very same one I have written several post about. Anyways to summarize a years worth of bs the problems that cause me a great deal of stress is my boss lack of experience supervising a shift. She is young and has not had a lot of experience. At my job my main responsibilities include answering phone calls and emails and doing basic data entry. That in itself is a full 8 hour job which is full of acceptable levels of stress.
I also take care of our AES department. We have the largest AES network in Dallas and we have expanded to several different cities in TX. That department requires about 8 work to accomplish several different task which include tech support,programming units,selling units, ordering supplies, selling supplies, checking the strength of the network , and many other things. This department will give you an average amount of stress.
Currently I am working 2 full-time jobs and only get paid for one. Here are the problems. Due to recent upgrades at work we now have to do more work by answering phone calls from other departments which cuts into the amount of time we have to deal with problems in our own department. Not only that I am working 2 full-time jobs in just one 8 hour day mixed with the bs of another departments phone calls. All this has increased the level of stress to near super saiyan levels.
I know what you’re thinking if I can’t handle the job then quit. Well I can handle my job what I can’t handle is having a boss who fails to motivate us and has anger management issues. The other day was the last straw man I powered up at work went beyond level 9000 punched the wall got tears in my eyes and thought about putting my 2 weeks in. We had 2 large orders from a dealer who wanted basically 10 of everything we sell. That’s fine we can do that but part of their order requested (10) 25 ft long cables that i have to measure and cut and crimp on connectors and test each one. doing 10 at one time takes about 4 hours but my boss wanted me to do all that shit in 2 hours.
Instead of helping me out she started bitching at me like she usually does and so after a year of bullshit that drove me over the edge. I sent her and her boss an email with a piece of my mind about 7 paragraphs worth of complaints. My boss is the type that only cares about their own self and will trow you under the bus to cover her own ass. Her lack of experience affects the ability to handle our department. Well anyways coworkers told me I should have involved HR. Nah if things get worse I will but overnight things have changed and if they stay that way I will be one happy camper.
You ever worked in a place where you enjoy your job but hate the people working there? I’m surrounded by perverts, druggists and brown nose folk.
Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy occasionally listening to a coworker talk about how she got so drunk on the weekend and woke up next to an ugly dude the next day.
The whore tales get old. Besides that’s unprofessional. We have the druggies who constantly talk about getting drunk and it getting high. Don’t get me wrong I am all for sin but stories of how my coworker got so high and drunk with his friends one night that they lost one of their buddies in a club so they start looking for him. Turns out the friend that was lost was with the group of friends the whole time.
What gets me the most are the brown nosers. Those people who will throw you under the bus in a heart beat. Those are the worst coworkers. Worst than coworkers that never shut up. People who lie and backstab you at work deserve a hard punch to the face.
So I try to ignore fuckers that get on my nerves and I mind my business but if those annoying coworkers left that would make me the happiest guy on earth.
