They made the sacrifice to cut loose friends so they could score A's and B's on their tests.
Now they have a title with their name and it is now time for them to apply for a job, at that company, that they drove by saying 'I will be employed there someday, you just watch'.
Finally they get the job.
There are people who work in that same department who feel threatened.
They have been their several hundred years it seems like.
Then somebody full of energy starts working there, putting the lazy worker to shame,
Because they are eager and ready to work with no complaints.
Now the new person can't understand why the others in the department are treating them bad. They can't sleep at night because they are not used to being treated like this.
They want to quit and give up, but they tell themselves that they are not going to give others the satisfaction of chasing them off.
But the unpleasant work environment is getting to be too much to handle.
Please remember, there will always be someone who feels threatened by your abilities and the performance that you bring to the situation.
I had to remind myself, 'I have a job to do, whether they like it or not, they are NOT paying my bills'.
By taking a stand, who knows how many other workers are waiting to get free from the intimidation from these bad attitude workers who have been there 100's of years.
I decided to enter the job with a smile on my face, in spite of what they say about me.
Who knows, I just might be their boss someday or get the training I need to start my own company.
