10 things I have learned this week:
1. When someone says to you “I’m not having a go at you because it’s not your fault, BUT….”
Generally means “despite this issue having nothing to do with you, and it being no fault of yours at all, I’m going to shout and bawl at you anyway….because I can”.
A manager at work has used this twice, he basically just comes into my office when someone pisses him off to bawl at me because he doesn’t have the balls to confront the person who is actually in the wrong, who IS actually at fault. He likes to take his anger out on those who haven’t done anything to deserve it….and I can’t say anything without pissing off his best friend (my supervisor).
I would love to tell this nob-jockey to fuck right off!
2. Michael Jackson had an amazing voice! ….
…I know people have a lot to say about his personal life, I know what he was accused of, blah blah blah. It isn’t about that. He was a talented songwriter and brilliant musician! End of.
3. I have excellent support when it comes to my new project…
…my family have taken a hell of an interest and my other half is helping with the setting up process for the website/social media! There’s a lot to do, it’s really scary and exciting….and I have plenty of people who will kick me up the arse if I try and back out of it.
4. When I’m tired I really can’t deal with bullshit…
…Not that I suffer fools gladly you understand, but when I’m tired my brain just decides it’s having no part in the discussion and my mouth will invariably tell the other person to fuck off and grow a pair. I know this will probably end up getting me into trouble, as it stands at the moment it’s helping me show I’m not a complete door mat at work!
5. When a manager says “I’m better than this”….
….I automatically think he’s a twat. Try being the Admin person you give pathetic tedious jobs to, the one who picks up the shit storms you create because you don’t have two brain cells to rub together!
You THINK you’re better than this mate, I KNOW I’m better than this!
6. The Dental Services don’t read shit….
…So I finally heard from them….Another letter whinging about the “false claim” that was actually an admin error by the dentist. Doesn’t matter that I submitted a ton of paperwork stating that I want to pay the bill, that it was an error, that it wasn’t something I’d done, etc etc etc.
Seriously – THIS is why the NHS is fucked up! The amount of bureaucratic bollocks that goes on there is ridiculous.
Let me pay the bill damnit!!! (I’m going to put a complaint in about this).
7. My OH and I share political views…
…so don’t argue about that sort of thing (my ex and I used to have incredibly heated arguements about it. We both know that politics in the UK is shit, we know that whoever we vote for will lie and cheat their way through their terms without representing us in the working class.
I vote because it’s a right that was battled to get….but I have no faith in my vote at all.
8. I am so much like my father that it’s scary!…
…we share the same life views. Neither of us will ever be happy working for other people, we both throw ourselves into our hobbies, we both know that we should live our lives as we see fit! We share the same personality, sense of humour and love of motorbikes/scooters.
It’s very peculiar, but very awesome too!
9. Some people have real issues being overtaken on the motorway…
…mostly van drivers! They rag the shit out of the van to try and get alongside you just because you’ve overtaken them! What is up with that? Seriously?! If you can’t go faster than 50mph in 70 zone then don’t get annoyed when people overtake you.
10. Put a group of managers in a room with a buffet and it’ll look like a group of 5 year olds had a fight in a biscuit factory…
…there will be food everywhere, it will be a complete pig sty, and they won’t lift a finger to tidy up because they’re that sodding lazy!
What they don’t realise is that I will get my own back….I’m not a skivvy and will not be treated as such!
PS – todays song of the day is:
Michael Jackson – They don’t care about us (Bit of MJ!)
