Job Rants Thread – 2/1/2019 – Great Walls of Fire

 

Hey, all; Happy Fr–

So…I can’t speak for anyone else here, but apparently my company actually expects their employees to get work done when they’re on the clock; can you believe that? It’s almost like they think they’re paying us, or something.

Yes, as of this week, employee internet access is apparently restricted to anything that can’t be considered useful or necessary in the execution of our positions. Shockingly, that also includes our beloved Avocado. I’m not sure what exactly prompted the change, and in truth, I’m a bit hesitant to ask; with the amount of time I typically devoted to this site on any given day, for all I know, I might have had something to do with it.

Now,  while I’m sure you’ve already started wailing and gnashing your teeth at this injustice upon my person, it’s not like it means I’ll never be on here; (you’ll notice that you’re currently reading something, written by me, for this site) it just means I won’t be able to dick away every non-job-related minute on the Politics or Gaming Threads. (and deep in mourning I’m sure they all are at that) Honestly, it’s probably for the best; as, while I might not, in the strictest sense like my job, it doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t strive for the height of professionalism, regardless. You yourselves are of course free to disagree.

Where was I going with this? Oh, right; job rants. Well, there’s mine for the week but, as I sat at my desk stewing, it got me to thinking: Surely, I’m not the only one among us whose employers take a dim view of extracurricular browsing on company time. Surely, there exists a fellow Workado or 12 who are just trapped, and just as annoyed.

Assuming of course, you can actually answer, go ahead and share those stories; along with anything else which might be bugging you, this week. While I might not be able to contribute much, I still look forward to reading them later, once the whistle blows.

As ever, have a safe and productive rest of the day, safe trip home, and a great weekend. And rememb–
