That Sucker Punch Of Reality
I'm angry. I'm frustrated.
I promised myself I'd cut back on the work-related postings, because: a) it will eventually bore people, and b) I really don't want to be identified.
After all, I still need a steady paycheck.
I've been fuming for a few days now, and writing is theraputic.
Anyway, The Job.
Something happened.... an occurrence that showed me exactly where I stand.
I've never been verbally abused or distrusted at any job in the last twenty years, but at this company it's standard operating procedure. A daily sucker punch in the face.
Some of my coworkers who noticed my appalled reaction tell me I have thin skin. This is the way it's done here. Get used to it.
