The perfect thread for me (even if it's a bit old):
I've moaned a bit about my job in "Annoying things" but this seems like a better place for it!
(I'm not gonna name anyone because knowing my luck, one of them will come on here)
I work in a (quite decent) solicitors as a secretary/typist, and it is THE most boring job in the world! I'm sat on my arse all day and somehow that tires me out
I almost started crying yesterday because I was getting so depressed about it
I used to work for one of the women in the Conveyancing department but she already had 3 secretary's. Then a woman joined from another solicitors and needed a secretary, this is in the Wills/Probate department. I loved it for a while (conveyancing is so boring it hurts), but recently I've been feeling like I'm wasting my life!
I got pissed off the other day REALLY badly! The woman I used to work for sits in the next room to me, which I share with 2 of her secretarys and another conveyancers secretary.
Anyway, I was talking to one of the other girls and the woman came out to sort out her post and said "You've got a loud laugh Louise" so of course, that made me laugh, then she said "All i've heard this afternoon is you talking and giggling!", so I said "We're all talking, I just talk a bit louder than them!", then (and this is the bit that pissed me off) she said "I don't mind people talking, I just prefer it if they're working at the same time!"
Seeing as at that very moment I was flicking through a file, how DARE she accuse me of not working, I nearly said something but I managed to bite my tongue!
I've been late to work every day for last few weeks because there's nothing to motivate me to actually go to work. I'm starting to hate everyone and it doesn't help when you find out people are talking about you. I usually manage to handle it when people talk about me, but when it's the same girls who ask you how you are and what you're up to at the weekend, and basically are really pally with you, it really does hurt!
Anyway, the point is, I really my job, but I think you've gathered that much.
If anyone wants to offer me a job, please do
PS: Hope this all make sense and sorry for rambling and sounding like a wet blanket! Just HAD to get this out!
