Stickin’ It To The Man.

via Daily Prompt: Overworked

Oh, hooooooow appropriate! Tell me if this has ever happened to you. You’re cruising along just fine in your job then new guy comes along. It’s new guy’s job to raise money. So now all the people at the top have dollar signs in their eyes and when new guy decides to push you around and you push back, all of a sudden YOU’RE the one taken to task for it. You’ve been at the job for 5 years, he’s been here for 6 months, throwing punches and stepping on toes the whole way. NOW all of a sudden, new guy decides he wants to create a new position, all the while co-opting you to do the work in the meantime. Then, big boss who has decided not to have your back after said 5 years of hard work, decides that you need to interview for said job, you know, the job that you’ve already been doing for 2 months. Now, here’s what remains to be seen. If you don’t get the job that you’ve already been doing, you will lose said job and join the ranks of the unemployed. I don’t want to be overworked anymore. I want to WRITE.

  1. That’s a really tough break. Stick around people who will support your decision to write who can pick up some of the slack if you fall into a slump. Otherwise, good luck on your path! Maybe this is the push you needed to escape
