Job Rants Thread – 10/12/2018: Viva Lost Wages!

 

Hey, all; Happy Friday-

 

So, by the time this goes up, I will likely be in sunny Nevada: seeing the sights, taking in a show, having my fingers smashed by a pit boss, the usual Vegas routine. But that doesn’t mean I’d forget about you, my little wage-slave malcontents; you all make make my Fridays suck just that much less, and I thank you for it I even though an appropriate topic, given my current situation: When, on this job or any other, did you take a gamble that you wouldn’t normally, and it paid off in your favor?

It can be anything: Taking the first steps towards a promotion, letting your boss have a piece of your mind, playing hooky and getting away with it with no repercussion, whatever; so long as it was a beneficial risk.

Of course, for those of you who don’t feel like doing that, (“playing it safe?”) feel free to just rant away about what’s bugging you. In the meantime, I wish you all a safe, productive afternoon, safe commute home, and all the professional luck in the world.

And remember: In the end, The House always wins.
