Do you find it difficult surviving the workplace ?
With all the different personalities in the workplace, particularly in an office, do you find it emotionally draining? Have you ever been sacked because a boss didn't like you - nothing to do with your work or how you got on with everyone else?
It most definitely is! I had a woman claim that I created a hostile work environment and claim I was slandering her all because I wouldn't ask her out and she got angry... It was ridiculous.
It is difficult to survive in the workplace and it is emotionally draining... while I've never been let go, I can see how that could happen. I think the key is to keep you cool and to try to let others get to you or to take things too personally.
I'm finding it difficult (once again) and will probably try to start another thrift business just to get out; much to my financial detriment. Right now I'm suffering from "multicultural fatigue." Corporations are globalized and Canada's immigration policy is out of balance. Learning all the different cultures, personalities, languages, English/French accents, etc. is starting to take a toll. I work in a job that involves constant communication; and many people I speak with would have at best a 4th grade reading/verbal level in English. Still doesn’t prevent them from getting the college degrees and jobs though, which I have always found to be a mystery. I also have to keep up to date on all the latest gadgets and gizmos. It's simply impossible for an ordinary person to keep up. We need to move back to simpler times; and we need to move back to simpler times soon. This is getting too convoluted; it's a house of cards that will collapse.
