Okay, I'm not sure if this should go here or in the "water cooler" section, but here goes. It's not even really an "atheist" topic, but it is "community" I guess. I just have to vent somewhere and I trust the Nexus more than gossipy facebook. (And even though I live in New York, I don't think any of my work friends are on this network.)
Here it is. I run a small company and work my ass off during this recession. I'm the top biller and I'm here almost every weekend. Of course I'm the boss/owner so I believe I SHOULD be working harder, but here's the bottom line. I recently had to come in on my daughters' birthday, (one of the ONLY personal days I take), because I found out half the fucking staff wasn't in on time to take care of a very important client.
I'm sooooooo fucking mad. I'm generally a nice boss, but I feel like firing every one. (15 employees). It's really hard to explain this feeling to people who haven't run their own companies. I know a lot of bosses suck, and are greedy lazy egomaniacs. But I give my employees good benefits, free fucking lunch, parties for people's baby showers and birthdays and shit. And this is how they fucking repay me!!! I take one day off and more that 50% of them show up almost an hour late!!!
Jesus. (Sorry, the lord's name in vain just works for me. Even if he isn't the lord of anything.) But what do I have to do? In a capitalist system do bosses just have to be assholes? Do I have to curse at everyone and threaten them all the mother fucking time? Don't they know how lucky they are to have a fucking job these days!! Jesus fucking H. Christ. (There he is again! I guess he IS all powerful!)
Seriously, any other Bosses out there ready to vent? I'd love to hear other stories. Or if anyone knows a "bosses" forum somewhere. Let me know.
PS - I don't mind hearing views of NON-bosses too. Despite the bile above, I actually like to see the other sides' viewpoint. I really want to scream at everyone Monday morning even though it's not everyone's fault. In the past I'm always afraid of "lowering morale". But it's about time they give a shit about MY morale. You know? I'd really love to hear everyone's thoughts.
