My name is Lisa and I am a “Professional Hand Holder” (credit due to Karl)
You know, sometimes I wonder what I am doing here. Well, that seems so existential, doesn’t it? I mean I wonder why I stay at this job long past the point when I get anything meaningful back from it.
Yes, the money is quite good for the amount of work I do.
Yes, there is a lot of freedom.
Yes, mostly I sit and IM friends all day between answering calls and emails.
Yes, *most* of my cow-workers are bearable.
It is mind numbing work directing people around a site that is basically self explanatory. The same questions over and over and OVER. And not only that, but often times the caller is rude, abrupt, stupid and usually all three.
It wears me down to do this each and every day. I feel like all my energy dissipates when I walk in here.
This is a huge rant and for that I apologize. But I cannot take it any longer. I have to make a concrete plan to leave here and do it NOW!
