This is what I noticed.

It's so annoying too.

Isn't it suppose to be about teamwork?

Least I thought. But, anyways it's not.

Back to the crappy hours, and being the maid service, [What it feels like anyway]. Chit, if I wanted that job, I would have applied as an hotel maid employee.

But you know, when I vacuum and clean, it's like my release system, where everything that annoys me, I go in my set world where I don't hear anybody. That means everything. All the annoying people go away.

I guess it's good in some point.

Recognition would be nice, once in a blue moon.

Considering, cleaning the place, placed them 2nd in the district.

But, it will never happen.

I only work and clean when district is coming. So wrong. But that's what it feels like.

Just curious how managers get their jobs with such the attitude complex?

There is no need for it. Back in the days you could work with anyone without the attitude.

But, not today.....

If that's all it takes to have attitude to get a manager position. I am about to apply.

Like, seriously.... Unnecessary.

Gawd forbid if you whistle blow too. When I did it, I got written up twice but only once about it in the same week. BS.

How can new employees get more hours when I have been there for a year? Yeah, it's going to help with my school and all, but I need to survive too.

And people wonder why this American world is sinking in it's own demise.

Gee, I have no clue...

Maybe because you brought it upon yourselves.

I'm not going to cry.

I do believe in treating others, like they treat me.

My #1 rule.

Starting to think, I should be slacking on the cleaning aspect. You don't deserve to be #2. I'm taking my "Bleach Queen" crown back.

Going to be lazy, like everybody else.

Seems to work for them.

Maybe I'll get more hours too.

Starting to think school won't lead to me to a good career.

Considering, I can't do anything right anyways.

I probably should of put this in rant.

Did you get it all of your chest? lol

Work sucks, distract yourself as much as you can, don't allow capitalism's alienation take hold...

School pays off, if you end up doing what you enjoy...

Make money, don't let the money make you...

Make the money, don't let the money make you
Change the game, don't let the game change you
I'll forever remain faithful
All my people stay true

Stay true to yourself... that's the key in life. Don't work, just to work... work to create a better world.

Now, this is my job, I will not quit it
Pulled me out the depths when I thought that I was finished
Yeah I questioned if I could go the distance
That's just the work, regardless of who's listening, listening
Listen, see I was meant to be a warrior
Fight something amongst me, leave here victorious
Classroom of kids, or a venue performing
If I'd had done for the money I'd have been a ******* lawyer
Concrete, vagabond, van telling stories
Humbled by the road, I'm realizing I'm not important
See life's a beautiful struggle, I record it
Hope it helps you maneuvering through yours and
That's why we stay in the lab at night
I've been staring into this pad for over half my life
A true artist won't be satisfied
So I guess that's the sacrifice
And I say...

We're all artists, as we create the world around us. You want satisfaction? To keep it simple... Become better at what YOU want to do. Then it's family first, neighbors, then self. It seems counter intuitive(placing neighbors before self), but I swear it's not... I'd say it has a lot to do with sacrifice.

Quotes are from the following song:

Your song isn't working.

I tried to fix the link.

But you have everything that is required, but the last few.

But, yes. I feel better now.

Thank you.

Chin up manhater, i know your feeling. the best thing to do is like you say, treat people the way they treat you.
i've had a number of jobs and my parents brought me up to do the best i can, but like you i see everyone else doing the bare minimum in their job. infuriating.

now i do as others do in my job - very little.

i have a job that i get by on, paying as little tax to the evil empire as possible (i'm hoping to go self employed soon and pay myself a wage where i don't have to pay tax) i'm trying to do as little as possible and get away with it.

this is the way of the world now. i know someone will pop up and say "be the change you want to see".

this world is far too gone now for that crap. i sometimes wish my folks had brought me up to be a feckless lazy bumhole like the thousands around me. i'll just have to act that way before i explode.

Now you know why I drink.


My only release for what little time I have.

This semester is going to kill me, plus work.

I won't have anytime for drinking.

If Eminem was singing the song, I could probably believe it.

He rules.

I agree this world is # a lot of the time, which has led me to the bottom of a bottle plenty of times over the years.

When working gets to me, I just try to forget it all and focus solely on what I plan to do to the worthless little weasel that made me so mad. By the time I am plugging in the christmas tree lights and ripping off the duct tape I usually feel a lot better.

Don't let em get you down, that's what they want. You don't want them to win do you? Just keep your head up, and if it does rain everyday try to find a good umbrella.

I'm not all that into new age eminem, I still like the classics:

Eminem - Rock Bottom

I feel like I'm walking a tight rope, without a circus net
I'm popping percocets, I'm a nervous wreck
I deserve respect; but I work a sweat for this worthless check
Bout to burst this tech, at somebody to reverse this debt
Minimum wage got my adrenaline caged
Full of venom and rage
Especially when I'm engaged
And my daughter's down to her last diaper
That's got my ass hyper
I pray that god answers, maybe I'll ask nicer

I am, however... digging the new age Atmosphere,

No overtime pay no holiday
Months behind on everything but the lottery
Went around the corner guaranteeing that my car died
Wifey having trouble trying to juggle both the part times
My cup aint close to filled up
We trying to build up so we can have enough
And when I finally get the color
There won’t be nothing left to paint on
A friend of mine tried to kill himself to the same song

This song, is nothing short of EPIC!

So break my body
Break break my soul down
Just another zombie walking blindly through your ghost town
Pull up to the bar to politic and tap the power
Aint nobody really all that jolly at your happy hour
But I don’t want to go home yet
So I’m gonna talk to my cigarette
And that television set It doesn’t matter what brand or station
Anything to take away from the current situation

It's hard to get away from. Especially, everywhere you go, there is always one person to bring you down. If it's not family, then I have to go to work, to get yelled at. I so can't wait for school, but from the school load, feels like I'm going to drown. I have a lot on my plate. Studying between the two, just don't know how I can manage. And, keep my level.

I will succeed though.

Just going to be hard.

Yuh, I haven't heard that song, or lyrics.

Is that the video you posted?

Listening now though.

I know at one point he did hit rock bottom before making his Mokingbird song.

Not sure though.

I think school is a good choice, and that you have what it takes to make it in the world. Although people might not appreciate you in maid service, maybe there is a chance that they will appreciate you in the technology industry, isn't that where you are going into?

Maybe you need to get a job where your intelligence can be appreciated, instead of your cleaning skills. I highly recommend it. I think there is hope, just don't give up and remember that.

Sorry, I don't like this singer. His words are sound, but if Enimen did it. It would be his words plus 10. Don't know how to say it.

I just, can't get into his beat.

Eminem says it.... Those previous actors/Musicians are killing me slowly.

I don't agree with lil wayne video, I agree with only Enminems aspects of the video.

Something I noticed from one Eminen's videos.

Why was Jesse Jackson in it?

I do not trust that guy.

Watch the movie "Office Space". Your whole world will change and work will probably never have the same stress factor. I work for myself now.
