On the road of life...there are fucking huge roadblocks
so, time for an update.

i fucking hate where i work. its not so much the job...but the people who run it. i held a suspicion for a long time that we were inconsequential, that nobody beyond our help desk boss really gave a shit about us. all that has been verified. see, while i was gone, a friend of ours who used to work in personnel and now works in IT helped us a lot in getting raises we were owed but never told about. for working here for like 2000+ hours, we were supposed to go up in pay like a dollar and a half. so melissa, our friend, helped us get to that.

well first paychecks after this come in, and my friend chris isn't at my level. he's at the one below it, and that isn't right. for whatever reason, he has a meeting with our boss's boss, dick, who informs him that he is refraining from signing off on chris' additional raise due to his attitude. chris is like totally confused about what dick is talking about - as we suspected eric the motherfucking asshole who works with us (but doesn't know shit about computers) rats on us constantly, even if he doesn't know what he's talking about. so chris tells me this, and i'm not even sure its legal. these are not merit-based raises, they are owed to us strictly for working a certain amount of time. dick can't decide not to sign it if it has nothing to do with him. that was the first part. then i hear that melissa has been bitched out for helping us get the raises THAT WE WERE FUCKING OWED FOR A YEAR. that was just too much. its like they are intentionally keeping us at low pay and can't stand that we have outsmarted them. i couldn't believe it, i felt so bad when i heard that. like, thanks melissa for helping out, sorry you want another job now. :\

the good news is that since then someone from personnel has spoken to dick and from what i hear i'm right, its just not legal to withold that pay increase. gg cockmaster. i can't believe how we're treated around here. they can all suck my ass.

you could add to this the fact that we are somehow bringing in something like 40 new computers and 50 new personal printers and we get to set them up - but hell no we dont' get new computers here at the help desk. we just get to fix all the new ones when they break. seriously we scrounge up our machines from what we can get. its fucking ridiculous. asdlajsd ;lfkasjdfjasdfjasdjf;jsdf jsadjfas.


in other stupid news...i might actually get my transfer app to sonoma state in on time - like literally. on the last day. i've spent 3 days trying to get my transcripts overnighted from berkeley, and today i finally succeeded. first it was because they dont take Amex, so i had to make some room on the mastercard (i'm spending almost $30 to get this done), then i tried faxing last night and it didnt get through. so if i didn't get it today i was fucked until spring apps. so this is me tomorrow morning going to crc before work and finding out my college gpa.


on a lighter note, the Amon Amarth is sweet and they are touring the US this spring. own.

I agree, and Dick is also a pussy. I couldn't get anything done when he was "in charge" somewhat for our building. All he asks for from me is a stupid status report every week, that I havn't done for about 6 months. Basically it's a list of all the tickets I've completed and anything that would be a change request. Since he has access to Track-IT and he is at the change meeting, it seems redunant and a waste of state time imho to put all that info into a spread sheet, when he can just print it out or view it himself in the system.
