Work

Have you ever had a day where you didn’t want to go to work?  Well, I think we all have those days.  Especially me.  I hate my job.  I despise getting up every morning and having to get ready to go there.  It’s boring and I am not getting the experience I need for future job opportunities.  I work at an accounting firm and I’m going to school for accounting (this is my last semester).  I have worked here for 2 years now and the sad thing is, is that they haven’t even given me any accounting work to do.  I copy papers all day.  I am an office assistant.  The bottom of the totem pole, is where I’m at.  I have done all the dirty work for this job.  I hate it so much, I loathe it would be a better phrase actually.

My life is at a stand-still because of this job.  They won’t even attempt to promote me.  I tried to ask for an internship, nothing.  The internship they said for me would be just doing what I’m doing already.  Nothing for accounting, which is what the internship is actually for.  I honestly could not believe it.  A waste of my time, to be honest with you all (not like anyone even reads this).  I just want a job where I like going there everyday.  I am constantly watched, I cannot do anything.  I have been threatened with my job more than once.  And to top it all off, I almost did not get my job back after I had my daughter.  I was told that I was unfocused the last 6 months.  Well, (1) I was pregnant, (2) I was in the processing of finding a new rental house and moving, and (3) I was in school.  I believe I had a lot on my plate that semester.  But he told me that he had to make an exception because there were two (2) other pregnant girls in the office.  I wish I would have gotten fired that day, I would have been able to get unemployment and not have to worry about sitters or work, just worry about my daughter and school.  Would have taken a lot of stress off my back, honestly.

Today is just one of those days.  This thought process started when a new girl was hired.  She just graduated Dec. 2012, has hardly any experience, and it just pisses me off.  I have been here for two damn years, no promotions, nothing.  And all of a sudden another just-out-of-school college student gets an accounting position.  Seems unfair to me.  I guess I will just see what is out there for me, job-wise.
