My job at the Venetian

As you can see, as of this morning, there are more changes to the appearance of the web site. I have been diddling these changes in my head a few days now and finally assembled them tonight. I was able to make a lot of chages to things I want to …. on this site and others.

It’s been a long night. I am at work right now and looking at the last hour ticking by. My job right now is a “show up and collect a paycheck” kinda thing. I am still working on my directions as I struggle to get direction in life. My passions with cooking are probably more personal than career? I’m not thrilled with this IT Department… the place I work at kinda sucks sometimes. BUT, the job is pretty skate on the Overnight shift anyway.

At this job when I work day or swing shift people are pretty upfront about treating me like a complete dumbass. People in this department are rude, condescending, arrogant and often pathetic. I have worked in IT almost my whole working life after the military and never have seen such a dysfunctional environment.

It’s not my problem. I said it already, I show up and get paid these days. Paid well, too! So, how can I kvetch too much?

I would like to find the dream job. It’s got to be out there because I had it before. When I worked at a web company in L.A. I had the best job with the greatest people. I still think back to the people I knew there and occasionally get to talk to them on-line. Mark, Michelle, and others. There was a guy named Garo who I was certain would end up in prison on a rape or stalking charge???? He was/is a nice guy but was a bit of a ‘tard with women. And there was Frank who I just recently found out from Mark that he was killed in a drive-by shooting. SUCKS!

There are some people here at the Venetian I really like that I am currently working with! Not all of them are assholes… at least the people at the Help Desk (75% of them) stick together and comizerate over the other butt-heads.

Why haven’t I started looking for another job? Well, I got my resume started. The reason I am not rushing out the door is because I have it pretty good as a worker-bee here. 8 hours a day, 1 hour paid lunch, they feed me, and on the over night shift I have to interact with a minimum amount of people.

Oh well… it will all come together. Cheers for now…. and tell me what you think of the changes!

  1. Garo is engaged. I’ve never spoken to him since he was let go, but I think things have worked out well for him 🙂 I certainly hope they have. And yes, obviously I still read your ramblings! OMG, I’m a goth guy???!!!
