The old man in my office has been ranting in my front for the past one hour.
He is angry, in short he is mad at the management.
He is talking about how there is no administration in this place.
Things have taken a bad turn in the organization, not financially but the administration abi is it management of this company is crazy.

Today is the 4th day of November and Oga Patapata has refused to sign our salary. Not that the company does not have money oh, according to the account person the profit this company makes is a
month is what some companies struggle to make in a year if not lesser. Oga Patapata just decided to do what she like and decided she is not ready to pay us yet. This is the major reason for the old man's rant, he has been with the company for the past 20years if not more. The annoying thing is he is ranting to me, a helpless me like him. I know I am supposed to be the one he reports to, he and two other junior staffs. But I am toothless dog who cannot bite. When Oga Patapata has spoken, nobody dares cough, especially not me the young lady(na wetin Oga Patapata dey call me). She has barred the MD who is her child to stop signing any company cheque. As far as I know it the MD who is always in charge, but here it is the Chairman.

Oga Patapata does as she likes, treats people like slaves and really does not care about them. I must say she does not do her craze to me, but it hurts me every time to see the way she treats people, especially those who work for her. Annoying is that I can not do anything about it, even if I could, I can not fight for people who do not want you to fight for them. The people here have grown thick skins to the inhuman treatment here, I don't think I can ever accept this kind of life

I and the Self have become sad and depressed, I am tired of complaining to friends, family and to you people. I want to resign from this place. Some of you might not understand, until you experience what I am talking about. I want to leave at the end of the month but ma said I should wait till the end of December. I am yet to decide on that because I cannot imagine spending 7more weeks in this dead place. I really do not care anymore, even the thought of been unemployed does not scare me. Yes I know it is hard to get a job, as my friends who do not really know what I am going through say, but I believe I need to get out of here as fast as I can.

My colleagues say it is because I have parents to fall back on, yes I am grateful to God for that, but I do not think I can stand half of the shit this people have come to accept as a way of life.

There is no career development or growth, people have been working in the same position for years. All my career aspirations that I discussed with the MD during my interview is sure not going to be accomplished here. Like one of my colleagues said the management would say to woo you to their company.

There is this woman who left her comfortable job, even though they were paying less to come here. To say she is regretting her decision is an understatement. When she just joined, they treated her like a queen, and she self was doing yanga, saying she is Oga Patapata's eyes. Them don show am pepper and now she is coming to the level of those she was doing yanga for.

Now I envy my friend who earns way lesser but works in a friendly environment. Now I know that when job hunting next time, a one man business even though a lot of them are LTD in disguise is a no-no.
3weeks or 7weeks more, I am not sure, all I know is I would not be here in 2011.
Ciao for now.

Hang in tight, sorry about your situation my friend, it must really suck...Don't quit until you find something, times are really tough now and except you have enough savings, manage and then quit.
