I liked mine better when it was primarily tech work in the communications lab ... me, computers, tools and test equipment .... peaceful

this whole project management part is a nightmare primarily because we don't get to develop our own projects ... we are given things created by a special group of management butt remoras ... and rarely do these plans make sense

they do have pretty graphics in their slideshows ... but even those are a 50% fail as they have nothing to do with the actual tasks

I like my job now, dealing with the mental health population has been refreshing compared to your everyday common asshole.

My attitude toward stupid/incompetent people is just the worst since I started working as a pharmacist.

I believe I work with some folks who could use the services of an organization like yours, but they are in denial of their issues

How about, I love my job, but I hate my boss?

I guess I don't hate him, I just hate pansies that can't deal with conflict except to sweep shit under the rug or pass it off on others.

Is he new? Confrontation in those situations as a manager can be difficult, especially with pompous individuals that push back (not saying that's you). It's definitely a skill that takes time to learn; I couldn't do in my mid-to-late 20's what I'm doing in my early 30's in that regard.

New, no, he has 30 years in and is "retired" but hasn't left the building.

So he pushes all the confrontation under the rug, or lets me deal with it. The good part is we have good people and they can see it so they appreciate me more.

My boss is a jerk. He makes me work 10-12 hour days when I get busy.

'course, I'm self employed and work a seasonal business.

Laid off as in you'll at least get unemployment?

I think so, but I have no idea how unemployment works, so I don't know. I have until May 6 to figure life out.

The job has just continued to suck and the county I live in, it seems it is OK to commit crimes. There is no deterrence and peeps are not scared to go to court, they do not worry about it at all.

Had a detention today for 2 car thieves. A witness IDed them to police as they sped down the street. He saw them get out of the car and walk to the housing projects. They are seen on security video coming from the area of the cars and into the projects.

Granted these kids were arrested mid morning and the hearing was mid afternoon and that witness could not get here. The officer explained what the witness saw and what she saw. Descriptions matched what the kids were wearing.

The fucking judge, who said this was very suspicious, did not find probable cause that these kids committed the crime.

Probable cause = Probable cause is a level of reasonable belief, based on facts that can be articulated, that is required to arrest and prosecute a person in criminal court.

REASONABLE BELIEF!! Not preponderance!! LOWER proof.

This is fucked up.

Fuck that Otis. The world is seriously teaching people actions have no consequences. PC = a crime was committed (car stolen), and it's probable the suspect did it ( id's by victim, and video). That's how we teach it.

My job has been crazy busy and for me it's probably going to continue through football season. I personally don't live to work. Knowing until probably Feb I am going to have to be a workaholic does not appeal to me.

Well another day, another punch to the groin.

Client on home confinement, charges pending are Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault (Rape) and Child Porn. I have over 4 documented incidents where violated his home confinement. The police dept asked for a warrant for this dude due to an Agg Battery and Mob Action offense (victim was able to tell police this was one of the assailants). Dude comes to court, Asst State's Atty doesn't even attempt to get the Judge to sign the warrant, that is typed and ready to roll!! Judge doesn't ask how the asshole is doing on home confinement!!!!!!! The mother fucking criminal walks out of the courtroom, FREE.

Not only has he been accused of the Agg Batt/Mob Action shit, he was arrested in another county for Possession of Stolen Motor Vehicle and Resisting Arrest. WTF more does the State need?????

Needless to say I have ramped up my efforts to get the fuck out of this job. I don't even get pissed anymore, I expect the worst to happen. come to my county if you want to commit some crimes and get away with them.

I was going to pop in and bitch about another episode of Managers Gone Dumb, but after reading what some of the rest of you are going through, I don't feel I have the right to complain about working in a Dilbert environment.

Otis - damn dude, that last post is seriously messed up ... I understand courts are backed up and whatnot, but by your description, they aren't even trying ... I feel for you man

Well, without being exact, you never know what Judge or State's Attorney may get on here (they would know who I was after reading my rant though), I live in west central IL.

Today's WTF moment - guy misses his second court hearing in a row. He has been given notice, so there should be no excuse for his absence. No warrant sought and they will just send him another notice. It is like come to court when you effing feel like it.

Funny you should hashtag that wab. Went in there for the first time in years last Friday night. It has been thru some change of ownership, multiple times in the past 20 yrs. It got to be one place to avoid. It hasn't change thru all the owners.

Well, well, well, guess who showed up in court today? The dumb fucker from above. Guess what? The Asst State's Atty actually had the warrant.

As I am telling the court reporter why this little fucker needs to be locked up for a long time, the judge looks at me and says, " Wow, you sure have an attitude about this guy." Somebody needs to.

The kid's atty and the State's Atty have conversation in the hallway. They come in and the pussy ASA quashes the warrant :frustrated: :angry:

He agrees to release him back on home detention, which he has violated numerous times (including being arrested twice while on it and away from the home) to his 85 yr old great grandmother who has dementia and the court knows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I walked back into the probation office, told the secretary I was sick and would not return today and probably not tomorrow either. Our judicial system is fucking worthless. The fucking judge knew this kid had violated the home detention order previously, by committing 3 felonies, and he has no problem going along with the agreement. WEak ass mofo :frustrated:

well shame on you ... you obviously do not have the concerns required to assist this troubled youth [/sarcasm]

this mirrors a case near me ... 16 year old, suspected gang ties, busted running a mobile meth lab, given home detention and 2 weeks later is a suspect in the murder of a member of a different gang (I'll try to find the article to link to ... it was in my local paper, not the Post)

with all this noise about cracking down on drugs, I would have thought the mobile meth lab involvement would have gotten him serious time ... the fact the vehicle was registered to a different person (who they are still looking for) played a role I guess whether it should have or not

I had two of the best weeks at my job in years Otis. My buddies and I took two home burglars and a murderer off the street. The murderer ended up in one of the craziest stories ever. I can't talk about it but it's insane.

I know Otis the system can frustrate, I see that more the not. However occasionally we win.

I am starting to hate my job as well. Just being a retail manager sucks balls. Have a manager that is obviously on drugs that nothing happens to him. Now I have to cover his shifts so he can get into a program which means working Sundays until his return. Been 2 months now. Pisses me off.
