I just want to know if anyone else thinks that this particular work “thing” I’m annoyed about is a valid reason to feel annoyed.
During this work process (restructure) we were told by management that reliability and punctuality were not important enough to the business to consider as factors when choosing who would get let go.
Am I living in a nightmare? Are my values no longer considered important by businesses today? I am one of those people who is never late and hardly ever sick. I learned that to do these things to your team and the wider business is disrespectful. For me, it basically means you don’t care enough about how your absenteeism impacts your workmates. And that’s wrong. If you don’t give a toss about the job, why are you there? I liked my job. I liked coming to work. These things did not apply to me. Yet, there are some people in the team who were taking so much sick leave they were in the negatives for leave allowance. And they are valued more than someone like me that never did those things.
Is this a valid reason to feel annoyed? I just don’t know any more. One thing I’m very sure of though is that I no longer feel like I want to be here. That feeling has gone. Now I guess I’m just like everyone else, the “status quo”… someone who just doesn’t give af. And that’s just sad ☹
