Every summer, I’m forced to work with a bunch of the employees kids. It wouldn’t be so bad if these kids weren’t so stuck up, rude and felt entitled to special treatments.
They complain that the work is boring.
They complain when they are told to get to their seats and do some work.
They complain about anything, from not being able to socialize with each other to being “bossed around” by none other than their BOSS.
The other day, they were all standing around talking to each other, their boss, also my boss, walked to them, all the while clapping his hands to get their attention and told them to get to work.
They then complained, along with their mother “who the hell does *boss’s name* think he is treating them like that?”
Well, he is their fucking boss and had they been doing what they were supposed to, he would have never approached them in that manner.

The reason for this niggling is this.. (Oh did I mention, they get paid ELEVEN dollars an hour to do simple tasks, like filing papers, doing excel spreadsheets.. etc..)

Some Americans are willing to work for much less than people from other countries

How much less?

No one in Italy, the Netherlands, or Egypt would accept less than $5 for an hour of work. In Germany it was $3, in Australia and Britain $2, and in Canada $1.25. Americans accepted by far the lowest figure: just 25 cents.

TWENTY FIVE fucking cents? Oh how those poor people would love to find out where I work, kill those kids and apply for that job?

Still, it serves as a useful reminder: the minimum wage in the U.S. is $7.25 per hour, and some argue it should be higher. But the reality is that, especially given the current downturn, many Americans will work for a whole lot less–and sometimes do.

This article made me so sad, that I want to go into work tomorrow and punch them in the mouth. I can too, cause 3 of them are over 18.. so yeah.

Though, I’ve learned not to blame them. Instead, I blame their parents. Because I was the first person to start the summer internship program at this company. Been working there since I was 15 (24 now), they hired me full time once I graduated High School and NEVER once, did anyone have to ask me to do my job, stop talking, or just plain plant my ass where it needed to be.
The reason for that are my parents. I am forever grateful to them for teaching me to listen to my elders. To do what I was told when in a situation to be told what to do.
Most importantly, I am grateful that my mom didn’t raise me to think I was “the shit”, but instead she instilled in me that I could be “the shit of all shits” if I worked hard for it.
Granted I didn’t but that’s because i don’t want to be “the shit.”
I just want to to go to work everyday, do as I should, get paid my money and go home drama free.

But these kids, they don’t give a shit. They think they’re doing this company a favor.
I keep begging them to go to the local high school and ask the principal to pick out the kids that really need the work and experience but these assholes insist on helping kids that need the help (none of them have rich parents or else they wouldn’t be working there) but they (the kids) insists that they can do better. Even though, no matter what job they have, they still complain about it….

Sadly, most of them can’t spell at an 8th grade level.. (trust me, I wish I was joking). So why company I work for, why are you helping people that doesn’t want your help?
I say we give that $ 11 an hour job to someone who will be grateful for it and appreciate it. Is that so hard to grasp?????
But one thing I noticed, no one listens to me until its too late. Then, they pull me in the office and say “wow niggler person, I wish we had listened to you before the shit hit the fan and took cover like you did.”
Then I say, “well, that’s my mama” LOL (that is a very lame Peter Griffin joke:)

6-21-11 8:24 AM Edit: I forgot to mention a little niggle last night. First, its not ALL the kids that act like assholes. Second, the most important words to describe them is that some of them have NO work ethics.
My question? Is it society or the parent’s responsibility to teach these kids work ethics? I’m leaning towards the latter but I’ve been wrong many a times….
