Sundays are the worst days of the week. It’s supposed to be the day of rest, but honestly resting is the last thing on my mind. Every week is the same story – anxiety, stress, and dread of the week ahead. I’m so tired of slaving away at my job every day and living for the weekend. Then when it comes to the weekend, I’m too exhausted to do anything. Or I need to clean my apartment and pay bills and run errands that I didn’t have time to do during the week because I work 60+ hours. I’m [living] half my life [to] throw the rest away (2).
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not afraid of hard work. I’ll get my hands dirty and do what needs to be done, especially if I’m passionate about the work I’m doing. I really like what I do, I’m good at it and I like my clients. It’s the company I work for that sucks. I hate being in an office, I hate having a boss. I’m sick of constantly feeling like someone’s looking over my shoulder waiting for me to mess something up so they can criticize me. I’m done with all the politics and making everything a much bigger deal than it is.
Companies try to squeeze as much time as they can out of you until you’re their slave. If you don’t work 60+ hours per week you look unmotivated, you’re a slacker. I’ve worked my ass off to get the job I have now. I’ve worked my ass off in my job to give off a good impression and to get promoted to the next level. I was not given the tools to excel, so I improvised to do the best that I could with an unfair situation. I was promised many things that my company failed to deliver. Now, they’re cutting merit increases, so after all the hard work I’ve done I’m not even getting a raise. My situation is not unique, it’s the norm. I for one am tired of being expected to accept insulting treatment from companies I put my blood, sweat, and tears into.
We worked hard in high school so we could get into a good college. We worked hard in college to get a good job (started from the bottom now we here? (3)). In school we were told that we could do anything we wanted. We were promised the world and the world under delivered. And I, for one, just can’t get by with my 9-to-5 (4). Let’s throw a coup de grace and #ConquerTheCorporation. Who’s with me?
And if I offended you, good. Because I still don’t give a fuck (5).
