Sounds like this place is a black hole. Super frustrating.

So glad I took 4 days off for Thanksgiving because this is by far the shittiest week of work in my life. Shitty by schedule, though, not really shitty work. Add to that my greenfrogs grandfather passed away this morning and it's just.... Feck.


But I did get offered a promotion today!

I don't understand how I'm supposed to muster the motivation to work hard when Christmas (break) is right around the corner!

You don't. You think your superiors want to work hard this time of year too? If they want you to do something intense, explain to them all the help/guidance// buy-in you need from them and watch them drop it faster than one of your blind dates

what? I had you pegged for a company man. Looks like that promotion, bonus and raise need to be rethought.

I went to each of the associates who were short of their minimum billables for the year. I explained that there was more than enough work to meet their minimum billables. The fact that they haven't gives grave concerns about their commitment. I also noted that bonuses and raises were not automatic and all compensation would be adjusted accordingly.

I am putting in my 200 plus hours billable, plus social commitments to our clients and my administrative work. The least they can do I make themselves marginally worth the money I pay them.

This lady sitting next to me is so fat she is spilling over into my seat and I'm trapped in. She also just turned the light on in a dark bus when I want to sleep and she started knitting

You are happy leeching off your parents and playing video games all day long and not contributing anything to society?

Who wouldn't be? Although I've never been a video game person. More like a book and old movie kinda drag on society.

I think the key phrase in his posy was "minimum billable hours.". They aren't even doing the minimum.
