The work needs to be done!

Posted on Fri, Nov 4, 2016 at 4:00 AM

What the fuck makes you think you're so special that you get to leave on time while everyone else in the finance dept stays 2 hours longer every day? You're behind so when I asked you to stay until the work is done, you don't tell your boss, "only if you pay me overtime..."! You and your co-workers are on salary and we don't pay overtime. And I don't know what world you live in, but most employers don't pay overtime and it's typical for salaried employees to work more than 40 hours a week. It's our year end, so I asked you to come in on Saturday, you ask if you get an 'in lieu of' day off in the week! No, you're behind, and we needed you to work that extra day! What the fuck is the point of getting you in on a Saturday to catch up when you're just going to take a week day off??? Then you have the nerve to say no and that you're not paid enough to be married to your job! You're getting $30,000/year for fucks sake! Some employers pay their finance staff less than that, so you are lucky to work for us! You're the most self entitled brat. Some staff work 12 hour workdays here and some take work home, and do they complain? No! It's called having a good work ethic!! Get one, lazy ass! —Frustrated supervisor
