> Be NLA, working for a chronically mismanaged company.
> All internal systems are cobbled together shit made by Indian yes men who understand what is being requested maybe 15% of the time, but always deliver _something_. Just never anything that works.
> Upper management manages via spreadsheet, can't even visually ID anyone at the top these days due to regular turnover. Middle management exists literally to massage numbers to meet whatever goal upper management has set for the month/week/day/picosecond. Lower management is a polar mix of "THE WORD FROM ABOVE IS HOLY" pains in the asses and "I don't give a fuck, just, you know, fix the customer's problem" pragmatists that actually keep the place semi-working.
> Pull literally hundreds of hours of unsupervised OT mostly watching netflix because I stopped caring much over a year ago and figured out that once the knob-slobbers think you're a hard worker they don't do anything more than look at a couple numbers on a spreadsheet before passing it up the chain.
> Got bumped to a self-supervised position because I'm so proactive. Downside is that I don't get to see much of the handful of full coworkers I used to work with.
> Most of them quit within a few months anyway because the company is shit, so NBD.
> Do shit that shouldn't exist in the first place because proper organization and the right scripts in the right place could handle 98% of it, but it's easy and fast.
> Do a day's "work" in about 45 minutes almost every single day. Get annoyed when actual customers show up, but that's my actual job so I do that bit right.
Fast forward to recent history:
> Management: So we've just taken on double the workload because we want Americans screening the customers from the other companies we work with that outsourced shit years ago. You don't have access to any new tools and can't really do anything but call the same fuckups that the customer would have been calling previously. Oh, by the way, we're at 4/5 staff and we're not hiring.
> Management proceeds to cut a couple of the best people for stupid reasons. Doesn't backfill those positions either.
> Watch shit pile up further, but don't give a fuck because I'm technically meeting the requirements of my job.
> Long term relationship dies hard out of the blue. Other things in personal life go to shit at the same time. Now I'm sitting on a stack of cash I'd earmarked for things that aren't relevant and truly have no fucks at all. Can't even be bothered to show up on time, but nobody's there to notice.
> Management decides that now's a good time to implement policies where everything has to be tracked 3 different ways so there's a ton more pointless work. Sends mail about what should be high priority now, means a ton more actual work for me.
> Lolnope. Can't be fucked, got enough money to be unemployed for years, zero motivation to do anything for myself -- let alone these assholes. Job is just handy for making a paycheck and the schedule works for me as long as I don't have to do actual work.
P. sure I'm gonna be unemployed in a couple months, but I don't care anymore. Every day is a struggle just to get out of bed, and the rest of the day is another struggle not to toss my pack, rifle, and a few cans of ammo in my truck and just drive until the wheels fall off.
