im thinking about looking for a new job. right now i work at the zoo, and at first it was awesome and fun. but lately theyve been changing alot of things and making up new rules all the time and its getting very annoying. i feel like i get lectured for everything i do now. "hey cat, can you come into the office? i need to talk to you about how this other person didnt do his work, so youre getting in trouble for it instead of him." "can we talk for a minute? this person didnt vacuum the dolphin gallery, so youre in trouble." "this person wrote down on the closing sheet that this building was finished. you didnt clean the building this morning, even though the sheet said it was finished and its not your fucking fault, but im gonna blame you anyways and make you almost cry." "i really hope this is the last time we're going to have to call you into the office." yeah, thats how my boss sounds lately. im just sick of it, its not my responsibility to watch over the other employees to see if they do their work. i didnt apply for the shift lead position last year, because i dont want those responsibilities. i dont want to re-do everyones unfinished work, or tell them to go do this, and go do that. i just want to do my own job. im busy enough without having to keep an eye on every one else all the time. if they want me to act as a lead, then they need to pay me like a lead. im thinking about maybe doing housekeeping in a school, my mom does that and it doesnt sound too bad. at least my days off wouldnt change all the time and id be able to stay inside when the weather is bad. id miss the animals alot, though. thats my favorite part about working at the zoo, i wouldve quit a long time ago if there werent any animals. and in the winter, hardly anyone even comes to the zoo, and it gets realllyyyyy boring. maybe if i worked in a school, i wouldnt run out of things to do all the time. and i wouldnt have to deal with 20-30 new employees every year. at the zoo, they hire seasonals for the busy season, and every year i get to help teach them. i wouldnt mind it sometimes, but when its that often, it gets annoying. i told my boyfriend that if he wants to move closer to his job, we can. but hes worried that i may not be able to find a job down there. but everyone needs housekeepers. schools, hospitals, hotels, etc.
i'd love to learn how to be a piercer, but my shyness always holds me back from perusing it. i hate how shy i am, i feel like i miss so many opportunities because of it >< but piercers dont always make alot of money, at least doing houskeeping i know how much money ill be bringing home every month.
