Tired of people doing their job half-assed and not caring about their work. My work today took twice as long to do because I had to fix so many errors. Supervisor has shown them how to do it the correct way, but I guess they just don't care because they know I will fix it. Going to either stop fixing so much so managers can see how crapppy their work is or just continue to tell my supervisor when I find mistakes.

It is generally a good idea to have backup/contingency plans in case of a system crash. Clearly, this is not the case with my employer as I have been out of work the last 3 days and had 2 half days of cleaning the office and dumb team building activities. Can’t wait to see how low morale is going to be when we return especially since it appears we are going to either be forced to make up all the time missed or use a decent chunk of next year’s vacation time as no one has any left for this year.

Someone decided to turn the heat wayyyy up in my part of building. Not only is it uncomfortably hot, it is making me feel sleepy and queasy. One day it was so bad that I got a migrane from it. Just one of several things making me unhappy with work right now. Want to say something but I honestly believe no one cares that much or will take me seriously.

Once again having Sunday nighy anxiety about going into work...can’t sleep and don’t feel great. Morrale has been really low the past few weeks and I suspect it is going to get worse as my employer refused to pay us for the one day last week we were closed due to the weather. I ended up taking the day without pay as I didn’t want to waste a vacation day and they didn’t give us enough time to make the time. My employer is incredibly stingy when it comes to benefits and perks and it is making for an unhappy work environment.

Morale is pretyy much at rock bottom at my workplace right now. My workload is so light and about to get lighter that days there just drag on and on. It is so bad that the other day during lunch I was on my phone looking at job openings.

That has happened to me in my current job. Is that how the company operates? Being overstaffed or will they be getting rid of someone?
The company is just run so poorly from top to bottom. A few weeks ago we had a huge snowstorm here and te company made people either take time off with no pay or use vacation time. I chose no pay as I am not wasting a vacation day on that. Every other company I have worked for has paid us for snow days without question. There are no incentives, no rewards and management doesn't do anything special hardly ever. A longtime employee had her last day on Friday and the company said or did nothing! Feel bad as she was one of the few upbeat people there.

Right now, my area is being battered by very high winds. Lots and lots of power outages around town. I bet if the power is out at my office that they will make us go in anyway.

Each day my apathy towards my job grows more. Today is especially bad..not feeling great today due to a migrane, it is gray, gloomy and snowing here...again. I just don’t care because there is no incentive for me to do my job at this point.

I am so fed up with every aspect of my job right now. Such a depressing place to be. My prior job has its issues and the boss was nuts but I would rather be back there than where I am now because there at least I was busy, actually cared about the work and even though the boss was nuts as I said, I know she appreicated my work and I was nicey compensated for it. Now I spend much of the day on my phone because I don’t have much to do and the work I do have I really don’t care about. This company does nothing for me so why should I knock myself out for them.


*sorry for the rant, it has been a really crappy few days and I needed to vent*

you're in the right thread and should feel no guilt.
Thanks! Yesterday was rough plus I was feeling crummy also. Doing a bit better today.

Sometimes it is the little things than can be most annoying in an office setting. No one in my office seems to know how to refill the paper in the copier, feels like everytime I go to print, it is empty, ugh!

I was actually semi-productive this morning but now that has faded. I am not as productive after lunch most days and definitely won’t be today. Plus everyone in the office seems extra grumpy today so that does a number on my motivation.

So glad that my employer thinks that having a “spirit week” of dressing up in different themes (all of which are lame by the way) is going to boost morale and make things better. Uh I don’t think so. Especially when there are some people here in the office who go out of their way to be unfriendly and miserable. I don’t really care about my work right now and this is not going to make me care!

Totally uninterested in working today...moreso than usual. I am tired of the monotony of the job and the little responsibility I have plus there is a big story locally happening this morning that is much more interesting than my boring job. On the phone way too much today reading stuff!

Nice! I used to work for a real life version of Michael Scott...that was fun times!

Each day I grow more fustrated with this place...for many reasons. The time is rapidly approaching that I need to say something to my boss...no idea how to do it though. Will probably be a spur of the moment type thing

My struggle to have any kind of motivation continues. I have concerns about things, as I am sure others in this office do as well. We are supposed to have weekly meetings to discuss things but the boss is never here to do them anymore. She emailed today to say she is off the rest of the week after being here only a few days last week. And the week before last she was on vacation! The lack of communication from the higher ups in this company is stunning.

Actually having a semi-decent and productive day. First day in awhile...I think it has something to do with the fact I was able to go outside during my lunch break and just walk around the building and it is actually warm and a bit sunny today. A little thing like fresh air and warmth can make me feel better. But it will be cold again in a day or so and the boss should return next week and I sense something might be going on behind the scenes with all this time off she has had recently and other people just acting weird.

Yesterday was decent...today not much. I am uninterested and unmotivated today. And someone keeps turning the friggin heat up...it is uncomfortable today. I would ask the boss about it but she is never here. *sigh*

Really weird vibe in the office today...moreso than usual. Maybe it is just my pessimistic nature at play here but something seems to be going on behind the scenes. Boss returned today after being off again last week and she didn’t acknowledge the staff.

Yep! some progress today...she sent a email today! But a big deadline is coming at the end of the month that will affect my and other people's workload and there has been no discussion about it.

the team can delegate tasks amongst themselves and stealthily go behind mgr's back if they are mature enough:nerd::boogie
Might come to that or I can just continue to milk the one job I do have right now. Yeah it probably could have been done or close to done by now but since I have no idea what is coming after it is done, I am taking my time.

Ugh...today is going to be unproductive. Really disinterested plus I have a bad migrane.

Finally had a meeting with the boss and I am actually feeling somewhat better about things now. At least I know my job is secure despite the coming changes although still not sure exactly what I will be doing. But I am not the only one in the situtation either. And despite my less than stellar work ethic recently on this project, my boss told me I am doing a good job and gave me praise!

We are in the midst of a “spirit week” here in the office...each day dress in a different theme. Not my thing but others seem to be partaking in it and it has made the morale around here improved.
