It seems my employer has (without discussion or notification) decided to kick me off the company Facebook page as its sole administrator. This along with the Twitter account and the LinkedIn company profile.
I may be signed off due to illness but that hurts, that’s personal. I have done absolutely nothing wrong. In fact I haven’t even touched the pages since being signed off in March/April this year due to Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy, severe depression and complications from my type 2 diabetes.
You know, I am so glad I spent hours of my own time creating, developing and maintaining these. Instead of playing with my kids or reading them stories, or spending time with my wonderfully supportive wife, I used my own time to design Version 1 and then update it to Version 2 once the new company look and feel was finally decided on. A process that took the board at least 10 months! They had absolutely no clue when it came to utilising social media, or even the benefits of networking local and national businesses. It was like it was a swear word!
You should also know that I didn’t do ANY of this work on Company time either! Did I get any recognition? Any commendation? Any reward? No. Not even a “thank you for your fine efforts and hard work”. So rude.
But then not ONE of my colleagues has even f**king bothered to enquire how I am! No text, no phone call not even a quick visit (I live quite literally 5 minutes from the office in a leafy suburb nearby)!
But then, I have been signed off since March/April – out of site out of mind eh?
I guess being a 1st class c**t is now a pre-requisite of working there.
So, the question is: Are they being arse-holes, or is this just a reflection of society now?
I mean, when was the last time you had a proper conversation with you next door neighbour? Do you even know their names? What about there kids? When was the last time you did anything nice for anyone? Held a door open for someone? THANKED someone for doing something?
I was with someone once who pulled over next to an unsheltered bus stop when it was absolutely pissing it down with rain, and she offered the folks standing there a lift. There faces said it all. They were like ‘What the F**K!” here is a stranger offering me a lift! Two of the 3 people said yes, and jumped in. They were so thankful that one of them remarked that it was so nice to see an act of human kindness, the other agreed and stated that it is a rarity these days.
My response to them was “pass it on, do something for someone else this week”. They both agreed heartily.
I for one am sick and tired of the crap going around.I don’t care about your religious, sexual or musical preferences. Just STOP BEING SUCH ARSEHOLES PEOPLE!
