Dear Boss,

your employees are human beings with lives and needs beyond maximizing your profit. We are not merely overhead. We are not a resource to be consumed and discarded. You can't claim to be a healer when you are content to damage the health of employees while in the pursuit of the million dollar practice.

Please get you out of there.
Honestly you would look swell in Red t shirts and khaki pants!

That's why I detested it so much when, years ago, companies changed the name of their Personnel departments to 'Human Resources'. . . It just betrays all too clearly the way they think of us. . .

Michelle,we all feel that way about our employers.even those that do not work in the for profit world.

Craver Vii said...

Not all of us, Mike. :-) I enjoy my workplace and bosses. They're cool enough to put up with the likes of me.

Don't give up hope, Lime. I pray that God brings change for you. At least, that the folks in your office would make the environment a more healthy and wholesome place.

yet another reason why i love working for myself

Jazz said...

As Craver said, not all of us. Some days I hate my job, but generally I like it a lot - as I do the people I work with. And I am immensely thankful for that.

Methinks it's time to update the resume and start sending it around.

I'd pay you just to be you, if I had a million dollars.
:D

Love you.

Start looking again, girl, you deserve better.

Dear Office Drones:
You are cattle. You serve no purpose other than to serve the will of your keepers. It is only through our munificence that we deign to endure your kind in our presence. Get back to work or your trough will not be filled.

God bless you. It's rough being inside of a cage and told not to say things when you're a bird who likes to fly free and sing. For what it's worth? No matter what day it is, the weekend is always coming!

You will NEVER covince them.

Jocelyn said...

No, really, it's time to go--even if it's to an even worse crapass job (at least you can look that in the face honestly for what it is). This is killing your soul.

Incidentally, I'm sorry I've been scarce lately. Blog time has been near nil...but I think of you every day. For reals.
