Its Tuesday and I want to rant a little.


-I want to bitch about the people that have caused such a mess in the city. Now, I know not all of them are like the people I am about to mention and I am all for the little guy. But if you have been in a job for 20 years doing the same god damn thing you were doing when you started and making a great salary why rock the boat. I am all for people getting raises and having better health care and if the company is doing well they should give a little to the little guy, but they dont have to. To me that is more of an insintive to go and better myself so I could be on top with the big dogs. I am currently going to school to so just this, I do not want to be a disposable worker doing something a trained monkey could do. And yes any job that these grab ass retards do can be done by anyone with little training. These people think they are not replacable and that they are the only ones who can do their job. A little wake up call is in thier near future. Their strike will go on deaf ears and these uneducated and ungratfull people will be without jobs. I have worked with people like them, they are not motivated to better themselves in there current position. They get complacent and bitchy, they are only qualified to do a few things and they think their company owes them the world. You want the world, you had better be ready for a blood sacrifice. They want what the people in upper management have but are not willing to do what they did for it, and hell alot of companies give tuition reimbursment. Mine does, it is not much but its something and seeing how the other half lives is more than a motivator for me to try and get my degree. I cannt go to school as much as I would like or take as many classes as I would like but I am plugging away slowly to better myself. I do not want to be doing the same thing in the next 10 years, I am always on the move and aware of what is going on around me. People should always be read to lose there job and know what to do if it does happen. A back up plan should be part of your Y2K survival pack, along with a strong bottle of scotch. And even with one you can still fail, but have the insight to know this and willing to give a little more to come back.
How do you think people come back form the edge to tell the story.....in thier new million dollar home, while others fall over once and are lost forever. Willingness to crawl through glass and ask for more, these are the people who will never admit defeat. I am willing to bleed and not willing to admit that I am broken, I will make it hell or high water. Waiting around and exspecting any company I work for to just give me my due because they have a surplus of money is never an option. You only get what you desirve when you go out and take it! Just because you have been somewhere for any amount of time does not garuntee anything. Other than that, the pink slip you get at 20 years will hurt more than ever.
So this is to all those ppl who think they desirve anything just becasue.......fuck off. You want a better job, go to school and demand it. And dont give me the exscuses, my mom did it with two kids working shit jobs in the the deep south(Go Alabama!). She went from working at the local car wash in redneck bumpkin land to being a LPN in government facility. Now she owns her home and she alone has bought it. So I dont feel for you and your exscuses because that all they are, a scape goat to why the world owes you everything. And yes I have my own exscuses to why I am not where I should be by now, but at least I am working at it and trying to keep my excuses from becoming my legacy.

Wow, quite a rant. I have someone in my office like that, always bitching when they give her more work, and always taking all her vacation and sick days to excess; and always thinks the company owes her a little bit more b/c she's older. I wish she went on strike then I'd just take over her job too, and it'd double my salary!

I am for unions to keep ppls rights held up but for the most part unions are only good for ppl that dont want to work and are lazy as shit....how many breaks do union workers get? And who said construction work is hard lol.

The company my dad works for forbids unions. They have a lot of the same mindset, if you want the job...you will work for it...

Great post and I'm feeling the spirit!

Or is that your hand?

hehe

Cherry said...

Wow, it sure is a mess up there. Unions sometimes seem to cause more harm than good. Especially in a case like this.

You go honkeie!!!! Tell us how it is!! :D

honkeie2 said...

Well if you want to call it 'spirit' thats all up to you, i have a few other names for it though lol.

Cherry said...

Hammy said...

Gosh, some seriousness raising it's ugly head on this blog. Can't say I disagree with anything you say and without fingering the MTA explicitly I think you have summed up the situation very well.

One of the more interesting rants on the subway strike fiasco. Even we athiests can enjoy a good preaching to occaisonally.

Rev Honk said...
