Just wow. Seems like everyone is having a bad start of the week. Poor Boom, hang tough man. I feel the same way about my job as you do about yours. Only my problem is I work for my dad. I just got bitched out yesterday because I’m not a good salesman. He wants me to step it up next year, but everytime I’ve tried I’ve been shot down. I did try to be a good ‘rep’ and sell a customer an ESI to replace their Piece of shit Partner, and I even asked him to put a bid together for it.
Does he do it? nope. And I’m the bad guy.
Two weeks ago I was sent out to a guys’ office where he’s set up his HQ while running for mayor. I get there and it’s a WIN.
- it’s improperly set up.
- the lines are fucked up.
- the phones are fucked up.
- the cards are in teh wrong slots, but I didn’t know this since I AM NOT TRAINED ON THESE SYSTEMS as far as setting them up and building them.
Remember my “My day of driving” post in the picture lounge? That was that day that I didn’t get home until 6 pm.
I get back to work 2 days later, and bobby lays into me about how I fucked it all up and I left the customer hanging.
a. had the customer not been a fucking BITCH, I would have cared.
b. had Kathy and Jeremy sent BOBBY back out to finish the fuckup he started it would have been fine.
c. I had a really, really fucking boring day that day driving back and forth and I was already pissed that I had to go finish Bobby’s bullshit, and then I call him for advice that day at 3:55 and they’re sitting in the office fucking DRINKING.
d. I’m sick of always having to finish what he starts, because it seems as though anything and everything I do is never up to fucking par with his Godlike persona and ‘workmanship’ bullshit.
Then Bobby bitches me out because he had to go upgrade an ESI since I’m not trustworthy after not doing a WIN up to par with him.
Make sense? I could install and program an ESI (with no wire runs and I don’t hit any snags…) in under an hour.
Fuck WIN. Then I had to take this stupid fucking WIN test without ever being able to study for it or even have the slightest inkling of knowledge on the shit I NEVER MESSED WITH.
Fuck if I know how many PRI/T1 slots and channels can be held on a WIN 440CT, fuck if I know what a UBOX can do simultaneously. I NEVER MESSED WITH THAT STUFF. Jeremy always took those jobs.
They want me to learn it, but they never take the fucking time to teach it to me, they just run off and do it then expect me to do it as well as them. They want me to ask questions, but I don’t know what I’m supposed to be asking! If I ask a question it’s a dumb one and it’s irrelevant, if I ask a smart question I get a joke from it. It’s never-fucking-ending.
Then when I call in for tech advice they jump my ass because I’m asking questions, an hour after they said call us if you need any help.
It’s fucking bullshit. Your job may suck, but Christ. Try being me and working for my AA personality father and brother.
I need to get back in college. I want to do something else other than be subpar for the rest of my pathetic career life.
