Sometimes people will ask where I’ve been or why I don’t post on here much or take pics… most people have no idea that I was working one of the worst jobs I could ever imagine. One day I was telling a friend about my job and I said something before I even processed the gravity of my words; I said I had never been so unhappy in my Life, including when my Mom died.
I said it and it blew my mind that my job was pushing me that close to the edge.
This was the job that I would work so late that security would turn the lights off on my side of the building because nobody else had been anywhere near where I was for hours…
Another down side to this job is the fact that all I did was sit and eat garbage all day lol… I know for a fact I’ve never been more unhealthy physically or mentally than I was while working there.
What’s that you say? America is playing in a huge World Cup game? Cool beans, get to work lol
The absolute worst thing about this job was the fact that all of your individuality was stripped away, and it seemed like a power play by management constantly. “Listen, we’re gonna have some people in from the New York office that couldn’t give a fuck less about you or your department, nor will they even venture to your side of the building, but I need you to take down anything from your desk that gives it character or makes it unique to you. Thanks.” It was some real Office Space type shit.
And all this while making your boy dress to the 9s smh
I believe in looking at the bright side of everything though…
I feel like the struggle of that job made me a much stronger person mentally. Seeing teammates get fired for making mistakes in a single email signature (true story), witnessing the building staff slowly get laid off before culminating in a cut of almost 60% of the remaining staff (can’t make this stuff up), and being assigned massive special projects with impossible deadlines (and still beating the deadline by an entire business day) really makes you realize you can catch anything that’s thrown your way.
Thanks (sincerely) GCG, without you I wouldn’t have this intense knowledge of Excel, wouldn’t be able to throw together a flawless email, and wouldn’t have the professional confidence I have. Thanks for the friends I made, thanks for the Life lessons learned.
A job that stressful deserved a chilled glass of Patron for lunch on the last day…
It’s really hard to take pics or put together posts when your job literally takes everything out of you. Straight wiped me out. I thank God I’m out though.
