Why are people so damn LAZY!!!! Work related rant!

Ok so I get to work this morning from a very peaceful day off watching football and just well relaxing from a tough week. I walk into the store and NOTHINGS been done. I mean less than nothing, it appears that whatever was left over from Saturday didnt even get accomplished on Sunday.

When Im at work I make sure that whatever I start I finish, whatever I take in trade or cash gets cleaned and put away or gets displayed. Theres some F-IN trash on the floor, things scattered about...you know like you walk by something accidentally knock it over but just keep walking!!?!?!?!?!

Place wasnt cleaned, counters werent wiped down AARRGGHHHHH. Im going to have a LONG LONG talk with the weekend crew thats a fact! Dont you just hate lazy ass mo-fos. Honestly time goes by faster when your working....

Re: Why are people so damn LAZY!!!! Work related rant!

Yes, its irritating. My field crews (not all, but most) are the laziest bunch I've
ever met. They spit sunflower seed shells in the floorboard of the work trucks,
leave rotting foot inside trucks, newspapers flung everywhere.

1 guy was the "root" of the sunflower ordeal. So, I had my shop guy sweep all
the shells out of the work truck and into a bucket, took it out back to his personal
truck, and tossed them on his floorboard.

He keeps his personal truck locked now?

Sounds like they harvest.....sunflowers.

Back in the day I had a crew of 8-10 guys and usually there was always that one extra lazy bastard that slowed everyone else down. I used to get so irritated back then...on top of it the owner of the company would rag me about these a-holes he hired.... Id get so mad I would punch out my trucks windshield and claim road hazard. In a four year span I have no idea how many windshields I punched out haha.

Im very mellow these days, some say to mellow.

Re: Why are people so damn LAZY!!!! Work related rant!

Unfortunately, more than lazy work habits are wide-spread.

I'm like you, I go into my office, I know what needs to be done, I get it done. That's what I am being paid to do so that is what I do, work, perform my job description to the very best of my abilities ensuring continuity.

I have worked with some seriously lazy non-working mofo's, and most of the time end up doing their work for them anyway since it NEEDS to be done, or else none of us will work.
I recently started working for the Federal Government. Within my first 4 hours on my very first day I was able to deduce that Federal Employees have two work speed's... SLOW and RETARDED, at least where I am.
For "Orientation" I was handed a stack of paper work to read and told there were a few "Quizzes" at the end of each section, then I as left alone for 8 hours when they then returned to pick up the paper work... no one to ask a question if I needed to? Taking the quizzes I found the same question not repeated twice but three times verbatum, in a row! Of course there were at least 30 different people who were paid large sums of cash to put this paper work and "quiz" together... wonder where your tax doallars are going?

I'm a Therapist so my job is basically 3% patient interaction and 97% paper work... I don't even want to get into the amount of paper work that is needed with this new gig!

What's coming out into the work force these days has no sense or urgency, or sense of anyting else but themselves... very scary!

Jeff thanks for asking....my day went from bad to worse haha. I guess sometimes you should let the little things slide by because you might just be in for an avalanche.

Yeah right vacation. It takes me 3-4 days to just really relax when Im on vacation knowing what kind of sh*T Ill have in store when I get back...then a couple relaxing days...then back to thinking about the store.

But if I didnt like what my day to day is I would just start another business or get a real job. Just a vent day.

My bro works for the FAA and he used to complain to me about all the dumbass people he had to put up with. The government was hiring not by how qualified you were but more concerned about affirmitaive action. On the bright side when your working next to a bunch of lazy mo-fos you can really shine and in a perfect world get promoted faster.

I understand this is going to sound like some kind of crazy BS but my bro has actually hopped on a plane, flown to an airport thats having system problems only to find the new equipment not COMPLETLY plugged in. lazy, lazy , lazy.

I found out soon enough that the best way to get away from these lazy morons was to go into private practice. Granted not something everyone can do but now when I work for someone else it's "under contract". I ALWAYS make sure I have an "out" when I negotiate a contract. If I find that I am stuck with a stupid, lazy staff, all I have to do is give 30 days notice and it's... NEXT!

I didn't think the story you told me about your bro and the FAA is B/S, not by a long shot. Funny how I had a completely different view of government employees before I actually started working with them! I also have a buddy who just started working for the FAA, he write's program. Now I'm not saying there is something wrong with people who work for the FAA but my bud just bought this...

Re: Why are people so damn LAZY!!!! Work related rant!

Are you talking about the FAA down by Smithville, NJ? LOL I know 3 guys that left my company and went down there, they are all very happy employees. God I can get a job there..

I tell you what, I'm in work hell.. I took tomorrow off to either play golf with the boys from the office or kick it around the house my 2 13/12yr old kids ar off of school.. well, I'm getting calls and emails from people tell me I will be working from home tomorrow now.. LOL.. Because that's what I tend to do each and every weekend! Like saturday when I got 5 phone calls while @ diner with my wife and 2 sons..calls from russia, local, managers..wtf! "are you busy?" "can you leave dinner early?" "how close to home are you?" we need to build software for Alltel now! LOL.. because I'm evidently on call 24x7.. i've been working 55+ hours a week for 8 months now and it's just unacceptable..I hope this economy gets better so I can get a new job..

Plus the Eagles suck, and Pittsburgh played thursday so I had to suffer through sunday

It very well may be the FAA down by Smithville, NJ? My bud was working with another group that was contracting with the FAA and then the FAA picked him up as a full-timer just recently within the past 3 months. My buds name is Paul C.
He has a KILLER axe collection but sadly can't play very well, but he tries!

I stopped working those crazy hours years ago, my moto "I work to live not live to work". I recently had a meeting with a local hospital that wanted me to come in as a consultant and run their crisis hotline program. The person I met with was some 20-something kid fresh out of school, obviously "overworked". She made me wait 1 hour, then I saw she made me wait so she could go to Burger King... Very unprofessional IMO! She then proceeds to tell me she needs me to run the 3pm-11pm shift... umm sorry cupcake but I don't work nights, matter of fact I don't work weekends or holidays either! That meeting ended very abruptly. I actually waited longer than the actual meeting that took place!

Gave up on my Eagles YEARS ago!

You just have to give up or go insane if you aren't the big boss. It's very frustrating and yet another reason I hate being in the middle (not the bottom and not the big boss either).
