Draining

The meeting is a staple of Corporate America and it makes sense that it is. Where else do you gather a bunch of people who talk in circles, accomplish nothing and still pat themselves on the backs like huge strides were made?

I am the lucky lady who gets to attend yet another one of these stuck in the mud gatherings.

I wonder if anything will get resolved, oh wait, I know, it won’t.

I wouldn’t mind attending if there was some sort of productivity, but these are just a waste of time. I hate when other people waste my time. I can waste my own time, but when others do it, it drives me insane.

I wish myself luck in this venture today and hopefully I don’t completely freak out. I’ve been a bit on edge lately. This should make for an interesting mix.

High School Land

I finally figured out why I can’t really get into this Corporate America culture and it is because it is a mirror image of high school. It’s been a minute since I’ve been in high school, but I remember my overall feeling of utter hatred for that time period. I was a teenager then, I am an old lady now, why on earth would this sort of set up translate better now then twenty years ago?

In high school you have to be respectful of the teachers and administrators or else you get in trouble. In corporate, you have to be respectful of your bosses and any other higher up muckety-mucks or else you get in trouble.

In high school if you cause any problems, display poor behavior or have an altercation with somebody you get written up or suspended. In corporate if you cause any problems, display poor behavior or have an altercation with somebody you get written up or suspended.

In high school there are cliques and levels of who you can and can’t talk to. In corporate there are cliques and levels of who you can and can’t talk to. (God forbid a maintenance person speak to some shitty manager from some department, career suicide.)

In high school the alleged “cool kids” thought that they ruled and that they were better than the rest. In corporate the alleged “cool kids” think they rule and are way better than the rest.

In high school I had to answer to people who were complete fools and I was far intellectually superior to them. (not saying much considering I’m not that bright.) In corporate I answer to people who are complete fools and my I am far intellectually superior to them.

I can’t take this anymore. I hated high school because of all these retarded rules and regulations. I hate eating shit when I have to bite my tongue. I’m at a crossroads. I’ve been doing “Fake Ruth” for the last few days and I’m exhausted. I don’t know how people do this? This is torture to my soul.

Forced

I’ve learned something interesting about Corporate America, they force you to accept diversity. Why should they be telling their employees what to believe? My example of this mandatory acceptance is the current month is Pride Month. I don’t care that it is all about Gay Pride for thirty days. However, it bothers me that they are plastering things about it everywhere.

Maybe there are people who don’t agree with homosexuality that work for your company. The company would never so forcefully endorse anything anti-LGBT. For that matter, they wouldn’t promote anything that would be considered to be more conservative ideology.

If the company wants to do charitable things with the LGBT community, that is fine. However, I don’t think that they need to insert Pride Month promotions all over the office building.

By the way, if you are reading this and think I’m homophobic, you’re truly an imbecile and have missed the point completely.
