Hi everyone! Started another one of my infamous at work thread here.

Tell us bout what you do (If you have a job or not), work stories, your colleagues, your rants, or anything else job related.

I work in a production facility lab setting. Since I deal with optics, I have to work in a clean room (not that it is clean clean, lol). I specialize in the area of thin film coating (for any of you science geeks out there who wanna know, lol). And the company I work for is Raytheon.

Yes, I get real bored sometimes in between production process because it literally takes hours to complete one sometimes. Since I got access to a computer, I'm able to lurk in forums during worktime (yeaaaa)! Well, that's bout it for a start. Let's hear what the rest of you all do. Oh btw if you're a student, that sort of counts as an occupation too and certainly welcome to post/rant here.

Well, work is almost done for me this weekend. Working night shifts on a Fri, Sat, Sun weekend really sux, especially on a 12 hr shift. Seems like serving some confinement or something.

It's interesting to see all kinds of excuses some of my co-workers used to get time off for work. This include stories such as my pet dog getting sick, my son broke his wrist, and I'm getting an MRI scan scheduled at 2:15am on a Sunday morning. It is hilarious that my supervisor and boss actually buys those stories. I mean everyone got their problems, but a job is a job that you need to be there to fulfil your duties. It is kind of strange that some ppl can actually get away with things like that.

Don't know what some of your opinion on work ethics are like. I would sure like to get some discussion going on here.

Hmm, I'd rather you not if it's not for real. That would be dishonesty. I mean even if it is real, there gotta be some limits set I think. That's what I wanna discuss here. I mean how far do you ppl think should the limits go with regards to excuse yourself from work? Surely I hope its not like I don't feel like working today, so I gotta think of some excuse to excuse myself from work. That would be dishonesty imo.

Eh, work ethics.

I think people who go on 400000 breaks and do nothing all day long are just stupid. What would you rather do all day? Sit and do nothing? Or work? Either way, you get paid. If you do nothing, there's a good chance you'd get demoted/fired. Actually doing the work assigned to you gets you promoted, and looks good on a resume. Large companies look for people with good work ethics, and the better your ethic, the more you get paid. ;3

There are people I know who will do anything to avoid work. From taking a gazillion smoke breaks to trying to waste time doing nothing to finding ways for a loophole in the system. Some even like to fein sickness and get doctor's note to be excused from work. Yeah, we all can see it and know what's going on but can't do a [Censored] about it. It's really frustrating because the bosses can't even get them because these people know the way to milk the company system and won't get fired for it. This pisses me off a lot because people are bending the rules and getting away with murder.

I used to think that hard work will get you somewhere and move you up the corporate ladder. It is not true anymore. It seems like ppl who don't do the work moves up the ladder instead, because they know how to play the system and politics. But is that gonna change the way I am gonna do things? No... I believe in retribution. You may not be punished for your dishonesty today, but one day you're gonna get it somewhere.

Then, I also know this person who knows dick all of what he's doing. Yet he knows how to quote big words from textbooks and act like he knows it all in front of the bosses. Because of his ignorant suckup show he can put on, he gets to sent on company trips to conferences and such, and thinks he's like the number one important person in the department with his cob held high.

Thanks for listening to my rant. LoL... Anybody else with other comments or stories?
