Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I am convinced that those of us who are intelligent and competent are at a disadvantage

Seriously, we are all expected to be patient with people who take extra time to understand things and accomplish things. If we don't, we aren't compassionate or friendly or whatever. We aren't supposed to say anything when they take all day to accomplish anything. HOWEVER, when I breeze through MY work and am caught up and waiting for the next "wave" of work, I am informed that it looks bad for me to not be doing anything. It looks like I'm wasting time. Um, I'm doing the SAME AMOUNT OF WORK AS EVERYONE ELSE and am more organized than most of you too. It's not my fault you are slow and you take forever to get your work done. And NO, I am not going to volunteer to take anyone else's work just because I'm caught up on mine. I'm sick of hearing, "You're really smart so you should help everyone else." Don't penalize me and give me more work because I'm competent.

Vent complete.

The lazy person does twice the work.
I can never tell sometimes if people are just not efficient, "slow" etc. or just plain lazy.

I quit arguing with someone on here earlier because they couldn't comprehend basic psychology. I just gave up, they lowered themselves to calling me names lol.

 I do have one coworker that, I'm convinced, goes so slowly so she doesn't have to take more work.

Who cares? Just work. If you're done, find something else to do.
