I love coming to my job everyday and dealing with shitty people. Legit, I love my job but as with any customer/public facing role, you see and work with all kinds of people. In general, people are pleasant and then there are those people who are just complete, grown-ass children. I got one of those today, I work in somewhat of an elitist community (see my rant about being pulled over in my shitty car like 50 times) and often hear variations of, I pay too much in taxes. I built a multi-million dollar home and this is absurd. I spend blah, blah, blah amount of money in this community. Basically, I have money (but no class or manners) and expect that I be treated accordingly. I don’t understand this mentality at all, perhaps because I have never had money to throw around but it irks me that this line of argument works on people who I perceive as having actual power. Power doesn’t come from money, someone can have all the money in the world and still be a whiny little shit. I understand the need to rant and having a moment but be classy about it and don’t throw around the money talk because it makes you sound uncouth and cheap. Anyway, it’s been a real peach of a day and that’s what inspired this holier than thou post. By peach, I mean bitch, it’s been a real bitch of day – see look at me ranting 😛
In general, I am a pretty decent human being. I try to treat everyone with the courtesy and respect that I feel everyone deserves. I think it’s fairly easy to just not be an asshole but some people haven’t got the knack of it.
A bit fat at a size 12 but I don’t have any chronic ailments and have a pretty great quality of life. Also, I am mostly joking with the fat joke, I love Lucy Wood and she uses this phrase often. I totally relate to her when it comes to being the size that I am.
On the heels of working a job that I hated for a toxic, inept manager at a cesspool of a company, I know that I am very lucky to now have a job that I enjoy getting up and going to each day. Even when I have to deal with shitty people, on the whole it’s a great job.
This might be something totally lame to be thankful for but I have many friends who do have a lot of student loan debt and I know it’s a struggle for them. The whole student loan debt crisis is scary, someday we’ll all pay for it but I am glad that I’m not right now.
I could go on for ages, but I guess my point is that there’s always something to be thankful for and most of the things that make me happy don’t involve money. Aside from my makeup addiction 😛
What are you thankful for?
