coldhand25 Posted June 23, 2020 Share Posted June 23, 2020 So basically, thanks to the pandemic, the job opportunities for a university student were really scarce, but my friend managed to get his father to hire me for administration at his firm. I got placed into one of the places where they put together the devices the company sells. Now, I don't get a lot of money for this job, but it's still more than nothing, and almost the same as what the people earn who I work with - who are not only working here in the summer. The difference is, they are like 20 years older than me, and, well, aren't the brightest ones out there. This is only my second week, but I start to wish I was deaf (we are allowed to use only one "ear" of headphones, to hear if they are calling for us) because of the constant stupidity I hear here. They talk about everything, including politics, law, economics - all the while they pretend they actually know what they are talking about, and while I'm not someone who has much knowledge in law, I'm studying economics, and I actively take part in political stuff, so I know that they are factually wrong in like 90% of what they talk about, which I wouldn't mind if they could stop being such racists and "know-alls". I don't know, I just wanted to get my thoughts out here, because I won't go against all my coworkers, as I still have 5 weeks of working left here, but I start to already have enough. What's your go-to tactic to ignore stuff around you if you can't just listen to music to not even hear them? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
