Some advice for the readers out there…

  • I can easily refute an argument that is formed in the comments, however, I was taught years ago not to get into a pissing contest with a fool; therefore, I don’t believe in getting into debates in a comments section so don’t even attempt it.

 

  • If you attempt to poke that bear and continue to leave comments that are trying to foster a debate or create posts on your blog to try and lure me into your pathetic ignorance, I’ll delete your comments and block your sorry ass from commenting on my blog.  — My advice, don’t poke the bear.

 

  • Just because you have a degree in a certain field doesn’t mean you’re a genius in that field, nor does it mean that you have any wisdom what-so-ever in that field of study. 

Believe me, I know A LOT of people who have doctorates or master’s degrees in a specific field…they’ve spent years working in those fields…but they never learned anything.  It’s all huff and fluff with not a shred of substance . . .in layman’s terms: “surface knowledge”. . . and it’s quite pathetic when they attempt to declare their so-called “wisdom” because it turns out to be ignorance and nonsense.  So, please take my advice… just shut your pie hole and walk away.  Don’t talk.  Don’t type.  Just walk away.    

 

  • Don’t try to assume or presume that you know me or who I am as an individual.  Reading my blog might give you a .0000000001% of knowing anything about me, but it doesn’t mean you know me so take my advice and don’t presume or assume anything about me just because you read one of my posts. 

 

  • I find it pathetic when people fail to recognize that they aren’t as humble as they like to imagine themselves to be.  Truth is, if you think your opinion matters and you feel like you just have to tell someone how wrong they are, you’re not humble.  You’re arrogant.  My advice…keep your mouth shut and fingers off the keyboard.  It’s better not to say anything and appear to have humility than to create more problems with your pathetic words.   

 

  • If you don’t like my advice…I don’t care, it’s my blog…not yours…and it’s pathetic to think otherwise.  (also, if you think my blog is here for you to voice your opinions…you’re wrong.)  

 

  • Pathetic is as pathetic does and I enjoy writing about pathetic.  If you don’t like that subject or think it’s divisive, my advice is simple…don’t read my blog.

Ethics. Does the Law Change When a Natural Disaster Occurs?

 

It’s two o’clock in the morning.  You’re sitting at a red light.  

There is no one else at the intersection.

If you decide to run the red light, did you break the law?  

Now, let’s change that up…

You live in a flooded city.  Your power is out, you have no food, you’re wet and hungry.

The city is being evacuated, but you don’t know how long it will be before they reach you.

You see a grocery store nearby and decide to wade over.  When you reach the entrance of the store you find out it’s locked.

No one else is around.  It’s just you.

If you break a window and steal food from the store, did you break the law?    

 

ABC news correspondent, Tom Llamas, and a group of police officers were patrolling an area in Houston when they came across a possible deceased person in the water.

At the very same time Tom also spotted a group of people looting a nearby store and made the decision to inform the police who were with him.  

The authorities called in the Coast Guard who then proceeded to disperse the people and made sure there wasn’t any further looting.  

Tom posted the event on twitter.

And the bullying began.

The bullying Twits didn’t take too kindly to Tom’s actions and vilified him for pointing out people who were breaking the law because they claimed those people had the right to loot because they were hungry or in need and Tom should have turned a blind eye.

The Twits called him names and chastised him for doing the ethical thing.

I find it odd how a group of wannabe’s in our society are under the strange impression that when a natural disaster occurs, the law somehow changes or becomes obsolete; therefore, they believe and rationalize that people have the right to loot, steal, rape, pillage, destroy and murder as long as they do it under the pretense that they are “in need“. 

I wonder if the Twits would still approve of the looting if a natural disaster happened in their town or city and people they didn’t know began looting from their homes and businesses?

After all…according to the bullying Twits, if a natural disaster occurs, that means the law changes and looting is okay as long as people are “in need”

Consequently, a natural disaster does NOT change the law, nor does sitting alone at a red light at two in the morning, nor does your social upbringing or monetary circumstances.  

I don’t care if you don’t agree.  

The law never changes for your convenience or needs because it’s there to protect you from yourself.  

YOU SHALL NOT” has never changed and it never will no matter how people try to rationalize it.   

Therefore, what Tom did by pointing out the looters to law enforcement was the correct thing to do.  It was the moral thing to do.  It was the ethical thing to do.  And I commend him for it!

We need more people like Tom Llamas in the world.  

– 

People who try to rationalize immoral, law-breaking behavior while vilifying those who don’t are pathetic. 

 

 

 

I’m Forming a New Anti-Hate Group…

 

I’ve decided to start a new group that will be focused on eliminating hate forever.  I call it, “Haters Against Hating Against Haters Against Hating Abominations” 

For short, we’ll just refer to it as:  HAHAHAHA.

Oh! The Irony…

Ironic how demoralcrats believe the information reported by the media is accurate and real, and yet they so quickly turn to a source where the information reported is a television show based solely on satire and jokes.

Ironic how over the past 70 years demoralcrats have pushed God out of schools, out of government and out of the workplace; and the results have been a drastic increase in the following:

  • sexual immorality, 
  • underage drinking,
  • illegal drug use, 
  • reported sexually transmitted diseases,
  • robberies,
  • thefts,
  • riots,
  • hate crimes,
  • vulgar speech
  • lewd conduct

(just to name a few).

Ironic how demoralcrats want to rush everyone down a path of immorality that leads to disease, decay and death; then try to make people believe how much they care about humanity by trying to offer healthcare coverage to those they know won’t be healthy because of the immoral lifestyle they so readily promote and condone.

Ironic how demoralcrats want to force God and the Bible out of their lives, but when they get attacked by someone on the right, they quickly spout scripture like it’s a second language.

Ironic how demoralcrats believe they are promoting freedom when they fight to remove the freedoms from other people.

Ironic how demoralcrats want to promote the use of windmills to “provide clean energy”; However…they never take into consideration that windmill farms…

  • a) require roads for maintenance vehicles and heavy machinery, which….
  • b) require that large areas of farming fields, natural prairies and/or grasslands be removed for said roads and installation, which eliminates habitats for wild birds and animals,
  • c) require numerous amounts of OIL (fossel fuels) for lubrication, and…
  • d) require solvents and cleaners to wash them so the windmills are kept in working order, which can also lead to pollutants in the surrounding soil.

Ironic that demoralcrats believe government will protect them from other people, but fail to see that government was created to protect them from themselves.

 

 

Lab Rat

My manager and I were discussing the reasons as to why so many pathetically ignorant people are promoted into management positions in my little vortex of hell, and then we realized that they never seem to leave.  

We actually named off close to 30 managers in my little vortex of hell who should be demoted or fired for ignorance and stupidity alone.  

Ya…that’s right . . . THIRTY! . . . and quite pathetically we probably could have named off more if we hadn’t been so rudely interrupted by a phone call from one of the managers we had previously named.

These so-called “managers” are very much like a nagging cough or stuffy nose that keeps you awake at night . . . Actually . . .that gives the annoying cough or stuffy nose a bad rap.  

I swear my little vortex of hell is cloning or breeding these people in a some secret lab, bringing them into our facility and placing them in management or supervisory roles and then secretly watching how the rest of us react to their stupidity and lack of knowledge.  

It’s like we’re lab rats or something.  

Anyhoo…

Yesterday I had this conversation with one of the aforementioned nagging coughs…

++++++++++++

Computer Manager: “Sooo, what did you find out about my computer order?  Will it be delivered tomorrow?”   

Me:  “I did find out that the order is still in production and hasn’t left the facility yet.  So no, it won’t be delivered tomorrow.” 

Computer Manager:  “Soooo…I’m not going to get it tomorrow?”

Me:  “No, but it looks like it might ship over the weekend and we might see it on Monday or Tuesday of next week.” 

Computer Manager:  “But that won’t work.  I need it delivered tomorrow.” 

Me:  “I don’t have any control over the vendor or the delivery company.  All I know is that it won’t be here tomorrow.” 

Computer Manager:  “Would you please look again?  I need that shipment tomorrow.”  

Me:  “Sure, I’ll check again, but I’m confident that we’re not getting the delivery tomorrow.” 

Me: (after checking status again)…“It’s still in the production stage, so no change.  We’re not getting that shipment tomorrow.”  

Computer Manager: (in slightly agitated and bewildered tone) “Are you serious?!?!  (sighs heavily) I cannot believe that they haven’t shipped my order yet!!  What’s the hold up on their end?”  

Me:  “Again…I don’t know.  I don’t work for the vendor, but let me contact the sales rep and see if they can shed some light on this.”

Computer Manager:  “Okay.  You do that.  And tell them I NEED that order delivered tomorrow.”  

Me:  ” yeeahh…I’ll see what I can find out.”

– 

— — time passes as I’m waiting for an answer from the vendor — — 

— — Answer finally comes from the vendor — —

Me:  “The vendor sent me an email to let me know that the order is still in production and won’t be delivered tomorrow.”  

Computer Manager:  “Seriously!!??!!  I can’t have that!!  Did you tell them I MUST have it delivered tomorrow?”  

Me:  “Yes.  But seeing as the entire order is STILL in production, it can’t be delivered tomorrow.”  

Computer Manager:  “That’s no good.  Give me his number.  I’ll call him myself.”  

Me:  “okay…here’s his number:  ###-###-####”  

— — time passes while I do other stuff that actually matters instead of waiting for her to contact me again — —

— — unfortunately, she contacts me again — —

Computer Manager:  “Okay…the sales rep told me that the order is still in production so it won’t be delivered tomorrow.”  

Me:  “yep.”  (color me surprised)

Computer Manager:  “what does the status “in production” even mean?  Does that mean it’s on the truck?”  

Me: (completely shocked (even though I shouldn’t have been) that question was even asked)  “Uuuhhhh…..no.”  

Computer Manager:  “Well, I need a tracking number so I know where it is, so if it’s not on a truck how do I know what the status is?”

Me:  “The vendor will provide the tracking number once the order ships, but since it’s still “IN PRODUCTION” and has NOT shipped yet, there won’t be a tracking number.”

Computer Manager:  “The vendor needs to be more specific about the status of my orders.  I can’t tell if it’s being shipped, in production or where it is.  This is so frustrating!” 

Me:  “Yes it is.”  (but I’m talking about her, not the vendor…fortunately for me, she’s too wrapped up in herself to recognize that)

Computer Manager:  “Well, stay on top of this and let me know the status once you have a tracking number.”  

Me:  “okay”

++++++++++++++

Folks, I couldn’t make this stuff up even if I tried, but this is the stupid and pathetic I have to deal with on a daily basis and it’s frustrating. 

Having to be a lab rat in my little vortex of hell is pathetically exhausting.    

 

Standing my ground…Dealing with inept co-workers

I work on a team of three people.  We had four, but one quit late last year because he was tired of people not doing their work.  

Well…let me rephrase that…

He quit because after almost ten full years with the company he grew tired of having to bail out ONE specific person who refused to complete their assigned work.  

Here’s the poop, each of us has specific responsibilities that we’re assigned to.  Responsibilities that aren’t very difficult.  Assigned by our supervisor.  That should be completed in a specific amount of time. 

Matter of fact…this is probably the easiest job I’ve ever had.  Unfortunately, for a specific someone on my team…they tend to make it more difficult, and for some strange reason that person can’t seem to understand the concept of getting the work done on time. . . or at all.   

For example, when a new request comes in that is assigned to him, he lets it sit in his queue for months.

There have been times where he will let work sit in his queue for up to a year or longer.  

Never acknowledging the request was assigned to him.  

Never updating the request with a status of where he’s at in the process of completing the work.  

Never contacting the person who made the request to let them know if there’s a delay or a problem or when the task will be completed.

Oh, one might think that he’s probably burned out and doesn’t want to do this specific job anymore, but if that were the case, he’d do more to make that evident . . .

which he doesn’t . . .

So I don’t believe that being burned out is the problem.

Two years ago when I first started this job, I began hearing from a lot of people about how bad this co-worker of mine has been over the years.  People were sharing their stories of failed orders, lack of accountability, communication, laziness, slacking and just down right unacceptable behavior.

I asked why they haven’t complained about him, but I always received the same reply…“we have!!  but no one takes our complaints seriously!  He’s been like this for over ten years!!”

Many of you reading this might be asking yourself if management knows about this person’s ineptitude?  

Incredibly, yes they do.  

Management has tried to move him to another team or even fire him; but since the human resources team here at my little pathetic basket of hell is afraid to do their jobs, he remains employed.

And of course, he always has an excuse for delaying the work or never completing the work.  

His reasons are endless, but after only a couple years of being his co-worker I’ve managed to figure out the two main causes of why he’s so inept:

  1. He spends practically 6 hours a day on Facebook and other social-networking sites.  
  2. Years ago he was trained by a lazy, old man who constantly repeated the phrase: “don’t get it done too quickly, or they’ll always expect it.” 

Neither of these are conducive for providing proper customer service or getting your work done in a decent duration of time.

That brings us to the here and now.

After a nice, long weekend I came in to work, opened my email and found an email from upper management who requested a status on something that was submitted over a month ago. A simple request to purchase something that would take maybe a couple hours to complete.  Sadly, after a month of waiting the purchase has not been made and the staff who requested it has not been able to do their job. 

Interestingly the email was addressed to our entire team and not just to the inept co-worker who won’t do his job and since the email was sent to our team, I could easily take care of the situation and complete the work . . .

But what does my co-worker learn if I do that?  

Answer: he learns that his slacking off doesn’t have consequences and someone else will always bail him out when the pressure mounts.

Therefore, I’m not doing his work.   

If he plans on being lazy, if he refuses to complete the work assigned to him in a decent manner of time; then he also needs to suffer the consequences.  He needs to learn that his ineptitude won’t be accepted by his co-workers.

And that’s exactly what I said when I confronted my supervisor about the issue this morning.  

I refuse to bail him out.  

It’s not going to happen this time.  It’s not going to happen in the future.  He must take responsibility for his actions, or in this case, his lack of actions.

I’m tired of working with inept co-workers.  

This workplace is really pathetic.
