Sometimes, I hear some of the most ridiculous excuses/insults while at work from those that probably make twice what I do. I do what I’m asked to do by my superiors, because I’m being paid. I don’t whine and complain if I’m asked to do something outside of my job scope. I wish others would take that same approach to the tasks they’ve been asked to help with.
While moving some desks, that weigh easily twice what I do, these are the replies I heard from the “help” that was sent.
Ewww, my hands are dirty. My hands aren’t supposed to get dirty at this job.
This ain’t in my job description.
Well newsflash, moving desks isn’t in my job description either, but things have to get done whether you like it or not, and if I’m asked to move stuff one day, I’ll do it. Next time, if you’re gonna whine and complain because you are too good to move something, get back inside, I’ll do it with or without you!
