Comments: Ingrates

You guys are privileged that they chose to work for you. Surely, you could cater to them better.

Hell... your breakfast sounds like a damn good meal. Bitchin' about free food. *shaking my head*

Dude, you're a saint.

Speaking of cookouts, are you amenable to coming to Morocco, IN instead of Buffalo range?

You should hear of some of the things My wife and her fellow supervisors have heard while working at "Sam Still Lives we are not a Cult" USA and doing the whole be nice to your people thing.

Personally I prefer leadership through fear, intimidation and alochol.

Sounds like they thought they were at a Denny's rather than at their desk getting a special treat from the management. Bah.
I'm sure most if not all of them still ate it though even in it's non-perfect form, which I suppose in a way is a form of appreciation even if they didn't come right out and say it.
Hell, it actually sounds good to me - I'm getting hungry reading your post :P

Tell those freaking ingrates to come work in Michigan, where the employees kiss managements ass just to keep their measlely, underpaying jobs with no benefits or extra's.

When the recession hits the rest of the US maybe people will see how good they have it at their jobs.

You sure hear the bitching and moaning on the IAFF union boys at my fire station. Us lowly part-timers get paid loads less, no benefits, cut hours and NOTHING from the district for doing the same exact job they do. Yet they complain, whine, piss and moan more than anyone I have ever heard of.
You are a saint....

I recently entered the office environment and i have to tell you that none of this surprises me.

I work for the State of Indiana right now and it just makes my brain hurt. The staff here spends more time discussing their diets and the activities of their respective cats than they do working.

Let's take right now for example. I am at work and blogging...not because i am lazy or just choosing not to do my job, but because my boss failed to tell me she wouldn't be here today so i came in and have literally no idea what i am supposed to be doing. After making several inquiries with said staff and finding them to be entirely useless i decided to edit the memo i finished last time...again, blog, and head home.

Gotta love efficiency.

You are a SAINT!!! I would've taken the food away from them if they bitched like that. (act like a 3 year old - be treated like a 3 year old!)

Good grief I can't believe people. Well, I can, I just don't want to... *sigh*
