aggggg, boss is now acting like ive done it wrong
how the fek can i get printing wrong?
you either tell me to print the right documents, or you dont, there is no way i can possibly missinterperet the instruction print XYZ, i’m right, unless the instruction to print XYZ was wrong, in which case its your fault.

Jeeze, there’s a ‘kid’ here really getting on our nerves. All ‘la di daa’ ‘cos he’s been to ‘uni’. Thinks he can stroll in here and take all the interesting jobs it’s taken us 20 years to get to. Well, he can stuff it if he thinks he’s gonna come in and take his pick. The only way we can keep the little fecker quiet is to make him print stuff all day and he can’t even get that right!

We get lots of recent grads thinking they know it all and are to good for filing etc. It useally takes them about 3 months to actually realize that uni is not a good preparation for a profession and they dont know as much as they think – they then generally shut up.Posted 8 years ago
I was one of these ‘back in the day’ as well i have to admit.
I’ve spent 4 years at uni, doing a degree so i could do this job, but all I get feking given is printing! Can you print these, can you print those, yada yada yada yada!
Half the stuff doesnt exist, for which I seem to get blamed, despite all you’ve given me to do is feking print it.
give me a break, the office is busy enough, there must be soemething more interesting than pringing FFS.
If it wasn’t so well paid, and there wasn’t a recession on I’d quit.Posted 8 years agomtMember
thisisnotaspoon – I do feel for you, most of work can be pretty boring but it does get better once they let you get you paws into a major project. When you have signed of your first job and it’s all going wrong in the Yemen (or similar) and it’s your design work so you have to go and help put it right, printing will seem pretty good work. Have a look at some of the old guys round your office. You know the who they are “been there seen it dome it all”, there not sixty there only forty five. Sitting round a table 200 miles west of East Jesus while 20 engineers form the customer wait for you to explain why it ain’t working, ages you. Good luck to you for being an engineer.Posted 8 years agomuddy_bumMember

What I wouldn’t give just to be allowed to do a bit of printing.
10 years I’ve been ‘ere and I’m still only allowed to stare blankly at broken fax machines.
Comin’ in ‘ere with their bloody diplomas.

Hardly the brightest idea to post this on a public forum. If someone at the company saw this it would be a doddle to work out who you are (the new graduate employee who rides mountain bikes and is given the printing to do), and in fact if you worked for me and had written this during work hours you’d be looking for another job right now.
“But I didn’t write the company name!”, you might say – well, you’ve given out more than enough information for someone who works at the company to recognise you.
You could do to be a bit more grateful that you have a job at all; there are a lot of highly qualified people out there struggling to find work that will even cover their mortgage, let alone other bills.Posted 8 years agosamuriMember
Just wait till you show some initiative and get yourself into a proper job.
Not showing any initiative? aaah….
If you’re taking all the printing jobs you’re given and just doing that and nothing else then you’re just another grad with attitude. Got to shine. Show an interest in the business, ask those doing the cool work about their roles, find out about how things work in the company and learn from people who have plenty of experience. Put in extra time to get involved. Identify areas of improvement and create plans to make things better. Take them to the appropriate people. Even if they’re not accepted you’ll be showing you’re wasted where you are and can be utilised to better effect.
You’re a graduate, you must be really bright and enterprising…..Posted 8 years ago
