Short timers syndrome maybe?
But my resilience to stoopidity is being tested HARD.
I don’t give a damn about working late, been “doing the job” for years, and when you are on tour, shit happens and sometimes you have to slap on a few extra hours of hard work to make sure the show goes on. No problem.
But do not tell me at the wrap up of a job, at the end of the day, you need me to travel 45 minutes to slap a frickin bandaid on a cheapskates gate and that I’ll be making Overtime to do it.
It isn’t the fucking money, IT’S MY TIME. I choose how and to whom I spend my time,,, and to lose a few hours of MY time to squeeze a little extra life out of a gate that should have been replaced/rebuilt instead of the slap a weld here, bend this with a come-a-long, grind this to fit,,,, yes, I can do that, in a pinch when security is paramount and turn around time for new is slow, but its jerry-rigged bullshit and pisses me off.
And the options I proposed made better use of My time, the crew I was working with today, and would save the company money in the long run. But, and the boss blew up, then when I was biting the bullet and headed out, changed his tune, called me back and acted like my proposals where HIS idea.
My patience is being stressed tested,,,
One week. I go away for a while, leaving all if this behind for a short spell. And in the interim, I am pulling all my personal gear out because I highly doubt that I will be returning there when I return HERE, and I have no idea if my return HERE will be much more than a pack up and leave trip. (Kittehs are staying here and my Da is looking after them while I will be gone. This usually means I return home to a half destroyed home as Mamakat likes to show her anger by rearranging bookshelfs, pantry, and anything else that she can hook a paw behind)
IF I return there it will NOT be at current rate. Period, full stop. Todays events showed me full well how ‘exploited’ I am and that there will be no improvement without a serious series of negotiations.
And why lie, I have no desire to negotiate for my own slavery anymore. You want my skills; heres my rate for welding, custom fabrication, diagnostic fees, etc etc etc,,,
Four more days,
I wanna see how much more I can stand before I blow up, and burn that bridge to its pilings,
