Welcome to the end of my tether
I'm feeling under so much pressure at work and am getting absolutely no support. Yesterday though really took the proverbial biscuit. I was told that I shouldn't really complain about the new office assistant not doing his job properly and being surly & rude because 'he is really intelligent and has a degree in philosophy so it must be very difficult for him to have to do such a menial job'. I'm sorry but this is rubbish. Why take the job if he thinks it is so much beneath him? Big deal that he has a degree in philosophy - its a harsh fact that this isn't going to have prepared him much for working life and will probably (like most of us) have to work his way up. There are lots of parts of my job that don't involve using my brain but I didn't realise I was allowed to opt out of them by waving my degree certificate around.
