I need to vent right now, so my apologies for using this as my medium.
Just got a call form a co-worker at a different site. 19-20 year old kid straight out of high school. He’s coming up to this site to take over the senior operator position, which is good for him. We’ve been with the company for the same amount of time. The difference? I’m studying to obtain 4th class power engineering certification, he has no interest. I already have a degree in Operations Management, and I’m 29 with a shit load more experience. They give the position to this fucking kid. Don’t get me wrong. I hold nothing against the kid, I’d take it if I were him too. What the fuck are these morons thinking? It infuriates me. Why did he get the position? Cause he fucking complained about shit. I do all the goddamn senior paperwork when I’m on shift, the senior does sweet fuck all, but because I consider it part of the job and don’t go over the senior’s head to management I get looked over? Fucking bullshit.
