"The best way to appreciate your job is to imagine yourself without one." - Oscar Wilde
I came across this quote recently and believe it says a lot. There are lots of people out there who have lost their jobs or on the verge of losing one, on furlough, hours cut etc. They're living everyone's worst nightmare.
I work with WHINERS.....lots of them. It doesn't matter what they're given, it's never enough. I work for a County Government and I really can't complain too much on the pay or benefits. For my area, I'm making good money for office work, I pay very little into benefits - the County pays the majority. The insurance plan is a good one and doesn't cost me a whole lot.
So what's there to whine about? Well......shift transfers, cereal, milk, peanut butter, bread, cottage cheese, apple butter....... We've recently started a monthly Staff Council Meeting and these are the main topics that I have to sit and take minutes on for a two hour period. Yep, I'm not kidding about the food part either. There *are* items that are brought up that are considered safety issues - and therefore are actual complaints.....but some of the stuff I'm just sick of hearing about. GET OVER IT!!! I'm also sick of the "I, I, I" whiners - most of these haven't even worked there long enough to whine!
