A Venting Session because why Else do I Have a Website

  • Is it just me or is asking for me to create some marketing materials, two hours away from the end of my work day, with a deadline of tomorrow, when I do not work in marketing and only work half-day Fridays, extremely rude? I have no idea what to do about this I’m just really annoyed by it. 
  • Relatedly, because I am not marketing, I do not have proper software and therefore have to create these materials using Microsoft Visio, which is just a huge pain in the ass.
  • I try to avoid ranting about my job but this specific ask really grinds my gears.
  • Do people still use the grinds my gears” meme? 
  • Sometimes I have dreams that I’m working at the bank again, or in retail, and I think, why did I leave here? Was the bank really so bad? I think I have rose coloured glasses about it now, but I did enjoy the simplicity, the routine of making everything balance at the end of the day.
  • I shouldn’t be so grumpy and ranting, I work from home and my job is actually usually pretty great, this was just a RUDE ASK at the end of my day and burned time I don’t have. 
  • Okay I’m done, here’s a here’s a cute Halloween illustration from Colby Bryant on BlueSky.
