I have been working in restaurants, factories, offices, construction sites, buildings, condominiums, distilleries, contractors and other various places and from my own experiences I have concluded that there is NO PERFECT WORKPLACE, NO, NOT ONE.
No matter how you try to educate, provide benefits, praise or do large amounts of positive efforts, there are always lazy people taking advantage of others for their own personal advancement, cheating on time sheets, stealing companies time and resources, you name it......it's endless
I must agree.
I've been in every work environment you can think of. I've suffered through it all. The worst was 'hostile work environment'. Stayed there 9 years. The last year, we had a new person who didn't pull her load. She was supposed to be there solely for the purpose of helping me, yet when the customers would begin to come in behind each other, she'd have to be summoned from her 'office' or I'd find her outside smoking. I stayed constantly aggravated while this person smiled her charming smile with graciousness to gain satisfaction with customers AND the dogmatic boss. Her way of making amends was to be 'sweet & cute' so it would mask the real problem: wanting a free ride. After I finally left the company, she stayed on maybe 6 months, then quit when she didn't get the raise she declared was promised. Raise for what? Standing around looking gushingly sweet, cute, & petite?
Yep, freeloaders can be aggravating. Have em where I work now, but it's not the same. The issue is addressed properly.....
Now I'm off my high horse.
No matter the setting, people are people. The lazy are prone to always be so. The hard workers will perenially out perform the ones who just want to get by. We must learn to accept there are things we cannot change and move forward in the best possible manner!
I beg to disagree.
If you're looking for a place to work where you can enjoy yourself, then I would suggest you work for yourself, so you do not have to listen to a boss dictate what you must do.
Just a thought.
you have any suggestion what kind of business I will be starting to work for myself?
search online for an interest and skill set survey. the best self-employment opportunities will fall into a category that fits your individual interests and skills you already have (or that you are able to acquire).
Freeloaders are ass****ers by nature and the workplace is just a reflection of the wider society. Of course we could always just accept the imposed hierarchical manipulation of every part of our lives and bend over as well, then we can take our place in the nose to a*s conga dance that passes for business practice.
How is it that the Problem People's Persistence in the Place of work can reward them with Promotions and Perks while at the same time Preventing the endless Positive Possibilities of the dedicated hard-working employee?
Yeah, I've decided to work for myself...no more cause for me to work for someone elses benefit.
All the problems you describe should give you the energy and will to learn and work for yourself. I've never been happier than the last 3 years of waking up, turning on my PC and being at work.
Nobody to bother you, no boss, no drama, nothing. You just have to get outside once a day to avoid being a hermit and recluse.
you have any suggestions of business for myself? thanks in advance.
It depends on where you're passionate at and if you have enough knowledge on dealing with that particular business, and you're budget of course.

Yes, click on my profile and read my hub titled "Getting Paid For Writing Blog Post And Reviews". There is much more to learn, but it's a start. I once worked just writing blog post for others.
Now I run many websites and pay others to write for me. You have to pick what you are good at and go from there. But mostly you just have to study how making money off the web works. Good luck.
sounds like a cool suggestion, thanks.
Everyone has something that they know or are passionate about that others would gladly pay them for. There is a great free book on www.getpaidforwhoyouare.com that gives you ideas on how to market all your vast life experience. It is not my site, but I have read the book and found it to be very helpful and informative.
Just begin thinking about what you know and love. There is surely value there to be paid for.

I am going through an extreme soul-searching exercise and would like to have some assistance from my fellow hubbers.I have spent far too many years allowing others in my life to dictate how I spend my time. For instance, many years were filled with sports and school events for the kids,...
