Workplace Rant: The Burnout

Viewer Discretion is Advised!!!

Well ladies and gentlemen, we have reached the climax of my workplace fuckery. I have been trying to get a transfer from my department because I have some lazy coworkers. Not all of my coworkers, I have to repeat myself because I have a feeling that one of them might read this one day and I don’t have time for that conflict. Oh and lets not talk about “the leader”, bless him but, he’s the most non-confrontational leader I have ever worked with. He doesn’t want any confrontation, seriously, he has sent emails to a person that was five feet away from them. Oh and he’s lazy as hell, I just can’t  -_-. Then people don’t want to come to work, and I get it, there are days that you just need a day to yourself but don’t do it every pay period. Please don’t get aggressive when you get points and you’re close to being fired. Anyway, I went to a meeting on Friday for “the leader” because he was out (again). As I’m leaving the meeting, the supervisor, with his flunkies, I mean his friends that are other leads are still in the room and he makes the announcement that I’m not being transferred to another department because people need me. Then I told my supervisor that I was going through a burnout. Then this comment, the comment that made my blood boil. “If you’re going through a burnout, then you need to go outside to cool off.” According to Rescuetime.com Burnout is a psychological syndrome emerging as a prolonged response to chronic interpersonal stressors on the job, [which results is] an overwhelming exhaustion, feelings of cynicism and detachment from the job, and a sense of ineffectiveness and lack of accomplishment.” Luckily, I spoke with a training coordinator about it and was a listening ear and has been very helpful about getting me transferred. I still got pay my money back from my savings that I used to get back to school but I will be looking for other ways to pay it off early so that I can leave early.
