Today

Not alot going on today in the white collar world in which I live, I mean work. Ever wonder how much time u spend in hell(work) vs. home? I did once and never thought about it again it was to depressing. What I think I am doing wrong is how I have my mind set to the word work.....I work Monday-Friday any normal week about 40 hours, sometimes more to get a little OT. Then for 2 days I am off from work right.....noooooooo you are so wrong. Life outside of the office is work, ever heard of the Hunny-Do list? People with families, kids, wives and such have learned this. The weekends are fun and I love spending time with my family with all my heart but, I do love my alone time as well. So why do I cry about going to 'work' when I do the least amout of activity at any give moment at 'work' vs. when I go home. For example: Tonight when I go home I want to wash my car, laundry, clean the room(which is a never ending fight lol), get ready for the next day and anything the little woman can ask of me. And since I knocked her up I cannt complain too much about when she calles me. But the way i am thinking of changing my name and not telling anyone haha.
So when has work even been work for me. It is like a mini holiday really, at work when I get a phone call I can handle it personaly and in no time falt. At home I have to do the remote supervising thing and I am no IT guy and I have to really try to visualize what these guys are doing on the work pc's to walk them through something. It might take me 5-10 minutes to do it over the phone but in person 5 seconds. Mainly because it is hard to tell someone to click on the next tab to someone who has no idea what a 'tab' is or better yet how to maximize the screen. My company has sent a few reall winners to my post for training. This post we have requires alot of computer work so why in the hell would they send me someone to train that cannt even use a mouse and has no clue what it means to right click something????? I know not everyone is computer literate but they need to be in a place where they are walking a patrol or riding the want-to-be cop mobile. To be in the HR dept it seems common sense aint so common.
While at work I can teach(visually) and manage everything in seconds but at home I have to do it over my company nextel. I can sometimes get my point across in minutes flat and be on my way but my phone can go off at any given time of the day or night and I have to answer it. So work now follows me when I am home. But I dont get paid to do home supervising which sucks I do get a nice hourly wage though.
So to conclude this Tuesday rant work, for me anyway, is not really work. It is quiet time where I bullshit my my pc, push paper, do some pc work, do emails and reports from time to time. And even on my toughest days( Monday, Thursday and Firday morning) it is still clam and smooth. So why is this work called work, it should be called me time on someones dime. I dont get paid to mow the lawn, wash the cars, clean the garage, do laundry, food shopping or be the mule for all shopping outting. But you know what? I would take those day at home working for nothing anyday.
PS-Dont pay any mind to my errors I am typing on the fly...

Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn't
quite find what I was looking for. I'm looking for
different ways to earn money... I did find this though...
a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
I made over $900 last month having fun!

I remember getting stuck helping some of the saleswomen at the magazine with their computer problems.

"How do you print? How do I open Word? Can you please get rid of the 3,000 viruses I got on this computer while I use your computer to e-mail my friends and fuck around with my MySpace page?"

And the boss wondered why so many saleswomen fall down the stairs.

Work just sucks no matter what way you slice or dice it...you gotta live for the weekends!

You and Chris have so much in common. He whines to me about his "alone time." All he has to fucking do is shut his door and I will leave him alone, but he feels like I'm gonna freak out and cry or something if he does, lol.

You've got one up on him though, he won't lift a finger to do any laundry or clean in the house. That's my job as a house wife. Granted I wouldn't let him, he'd prolly just fuck things up. But he's not too keen on cleaning the house b/c I'm home all day. And I don't really blame him, if I'm here all day my house is gonna be fucking clean.

I don't have any kids though, I know your wife has kids running circles around her. Especially the little demonic one I saw a picture of, he's got to be a handful, lol. 8-)

Gutter: I could never work from home....my ADD would not allow it lol.

mmotb: cum back soon!

anon: For anyone who reads comments do not ever take a secret shopping job, its a rip off. My wife has seen first hand several ppl get ripped off. I dont really understand how they do it but end the end you get screwed big time.

morbid: I have banged my head on my wall at home when trying to tell someone how to look something up on the work pc. Mind u I know these programs inside and out.

Cinderella: Maybe u need a new job then. My job has it sucky moments but I cannt complain too much. And yes I am soooo liven fo da weekends.

Becky: Dont u know that is how men get out of doing things: do it wrong enough times and u will never have to do it again haha. It works too ;-). But I do clean, it is a mindless task and telling with all the work bs it helps me decompress sometimes. I love washing dishes by hand because it is almost like a mantra.
I love my alone time though

Hey Honk - you've just been spammed by anon. You might want to think about turning on comment verification if it becomes a problem.

Going to work allows you to forget about the problems at home. It's a bit more relaxing with a little less nagging. At least sometimes.
