This is a discussion on The (stream of conscious?) venting thread for INTJ. within the INTJ Forum - The Scientists forums, part of the NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects category; Originally Posted by uplander How'd you get her to sit still long enough? I have to constantly remind her of ...
I can't stand it when you're in a debate with someone, and no matter how many times we go over why Proposition P is false, they bring it back up five minutes later...
Ahhhh, I just posted a "beautifuL" post over in the "what pisses off INTJ's" thread ... but now that I've vented there, I'm done. Lol, it came out a bit more angry than I expected, but I was really pissed off today. And every day. That's why it's in that thread, and not here. (Well, that, and, I didn't see this thread first. Oops. Still new.)
So it's now 3:40 in the morning and I'm awake for some unknown reason venting about drama to other INTJ's. *Sigh*
Makes me wonder why I ever accepted the promotion ... but then I'm right back to "it's a pay raise *and* it's more hours" ... and I couldn't pay rent and bills without it. And at least now I only have *one* semi-incompetent superior and 4 (out of 5) semi-incompetent "equals." If I was still a crew person, it'd be *6* people who think they have the right to tell me what to do just because their paycheck is bigger than mine!
Although on a positive note, I've discovered patience eventually pays off. You don't have to "brown-nose" (kiss ass) to be appreciated ... once your "rival" leaves. While she's still there, forget it. There goes your raise! But once she's gone, you've "my favorite manager!" Where's my 6-month raise now, huh? Why was I the least appreciated when I was the one (after she left, that is) who scored a 92% on my first mystery shop, when on my first full shift alone in the store? When the store manager herself didn't pass? All the sudden I have a lot more confidence that I'll be the first manager to pass our SOR (short operations review). All I have to do is just keep tabs on our problem areas ... times on the cabinets, times on the dress table, old product in the walkin, service times, following charts.
I do so wish more people understood that not everyone thinks raucous good times are a good way to overcome jet lag... and what's with the security people in the Netherlands, anyway. They are just plain mean.

Why do I have to bus out to the goddamn suburbs to pick up a package? Damn you purolator, damn you.
Today my boss had what looked like a mini stroke. He couldn't speak for over ten minutes and he started limping. He also became very confused.
The first thing that went through my mind was, "if he's having a stroke and is impaired... I'm going to give myself a substantial pay rise"... O.o
God damn I think I'm messed up sometimes
...oh and btw, he seems fine... just a weird migraine thing, though I do think he should have been bought to the emergency room.... half a morning gone.. sigh.
