I hate my job

3 05 2010

so it is 7 am and I am in work.

Nothing new there you might think, I am always in work at 7 am, quite often writing these blogs!

Well today is different it is the May bank holiday and as such there are only 3 people in the office and of course I am one of them, not only that but I have been told I have to work overtime.

This wouldn’t be a huge problem to me normally, in fact it isn’t really getting in the way of any plans today but it is the principal that is bothering me.

You see I was also here on Good Friday and Easter Monday, before that I was here on St Patrick’s Day, same for New Year’s Day, St Stephen’s day (boxing day back home) and Christmas Eve; in fact I haven’t had a bank holiday off since January 2008 .

I don’t want to sound bitter but some of my colleagues get every stinking bank holiday off and a whole bunch of public holidays that we don’t even really have an entitlement to.

When I have quizzed this in the past I have been told that it is because they are married or have kids etc. Well this argument unravels a little bit when you take into account that I have a longterm partner and she has a kid.

Geewizz I didn’t realise I was working for the Catholic Church here, at least their draconian views have some sort of historical precedent.

Happy fucking May Day

Her Idealisticness

You have to love being penalized for not fitting into the mold. I am sure neither of you feel marginalized or dismissed for not fitting their tidy little expectation of what family is. Fuckers.

Oh but of course not, there is nothing I find more wonderful then being told that I am less valid in my choices then others because I haven’t got a piece of paper from the church.
