I guess I'm just venting.... I love my job and used to think I wouldn't leave it for anything. I work with adolescent boys with substance abuse. Most of them are inner-city, caught up in gang-banging and irresponsible parenting, and surviving the streets....some of them are suburban boys who are 'garbage cans' and pop anything they can get their hands on to numb the pain of divorced families and 'nothing to do.'
Recently I find I don't want to be here, and sadly its NOT because of the boys, its because of the STAFF, the MANAGEMENT, etc.
One staff accused of showing porno to the kids on his phone. And I don't mean professional, I mean, "Hey look what I did this weekend."...really!? Could someone actually WANT to do THAT to kids!? Who do I believe!?
Now I have to write statements!?
Another staff decides when she feels like showing up and receives NO consequences.
Another one hides in office all day, rarely showing their face, with their clients asking me WHERE and WHEN they can TALK to someone.
A higher up who does nothing but ask people, "What are we doing today?" and sees this as taking care of his unit....
And lastly the receptionist is supposed to be about customer service...but she happens to be the BIGGEST F****NG B**** I have ever met! And everyone talks about it!
How are these PEOPLE STILL WORKING HERE. SO MANY PEOPLE NEEDS JOBS. FIRE THEM AND MOVE ON. UGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
These poor boys. so many of them, I cant reach out to every single one.
sorry. bad friday I guess.
