Ladies and gentlemen, boy and girls of all ages..welcome to the idiocy that is employment. I've been in the workforce for thirty..count 'em...thirty years and it just keeps gettin' more and more rediculous. I recently went back to work for a company that I'd worked for about five years ago. You've heard that people learn from their mistakes,I'm the odd guy out,or maybe I'm just a masochist, or maybe I'm just an idiot, who knows. Getting back to the subject at hand, I'm back at work for a company that just loves to lie to you. NOOOO..A COMPANY THAT LIES...NO WAY..Yeah I know, good ole naive me. First clue..they hired me in at one rate..then said they'd made a mistake and lowered my pay...GREAT CEASAR'S GHOST. Yup..I took the job anyway. I thought that maybe with time they'd increase my pay. Guess not. Can somebody please slap me. Now I'm told that my little benefits, you know, like health-dental-personal days won't start for 6 months, instead of the usual three months. O.k., now you're thinking, "hey Mr. Dumass, you're just lucky to have a job in this economy!!!". Yeah..i guess you're right. I just wish that being employed by a giant company, that does pretty well on the stock exchange, would'nt come at the cost of your pride, self esteem, honour, happyness, sixty three percent of your intelligence, 2 pounds of flesh and 60 pieces of silver ( not the usual 30). It just SEARS my butt.
