I have to work a certain amount of Saturdays in the call centre, and the last few months my department has been required to sit at other desks. This is because the department downstairs is required to sit upstairs with us, so they are given our desks! That’s right. We have to move elsewhere so another department can sit at our desks! And boy, have some of them been messy.
We’ve had dirty cups and dirty tissues left on the desks. I’ve had rubbish left in my draws. My department colleagues have had things removed from their draws and tampered with. Chairs have been altered when there is a notice asking for them not to be. And there’s even been chewing gum left under the desk.
These are people working for the same company. Some of them seem to be dirty scrubbers. We shouldn’t be thinking of our work colleagues in this manner, but if they act like it, then…
What is it with this country now? Why are people not taught manners or consideration for others? Is this the fault of their parents? I don’t think so. Adults know right from wrong. These people are dirty and lazy.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, both human and non-human.
