    I would recommend trying to get a different job. I had stressful jobs in the university setting until I let go of that as an ambition and now have a peaceful job that is a good match for my personality, although my earnings are less without much upward mobility.

    Many jobs have cruddy people, and many locations are full of politics, but not every place. It is worth making changes using as much intelligence and information possible until you find the right fit. Otherwise, environments can erode a person psychologically and physically.

    Just like... I can't solve these kinds of problems and manage people's feelings at the same time. And nobody cares that I do the former. People make more stupid, careless mistakes, but they never get reprimanded, because they can control their rage better. Actually, I was cleaning up after someone like that when I got dumped call, and the person on the other line.. I'm doing that constantly, and I have to deal with that, and if my tone is wrong, while cleaning up after someone else's mistake, I get reprimanded. But the person in question gets rewarded for doing and gets achievement awards because they're a "positive influence."

    I have to massage the egos of overly chipper mid-western ladies day in and day out, and it gets exhausting.

    Customers are ok, I guess. I'm used to them being crazy and clueless. Most of them leave it at that and are content to let me fix things. Other emplyees though, ask me questions, then feel defensive about not-understanding things or realizing they made a mistake. Half the time there's a customer-waiting on the line, and I have to be soothing for them. I can only take so much of this. I have to provide explanations only to be told "Oh, I'm not a technical person. I'm going to bring the customer on." I tried to get the customer on my line before... but they want to drag it out, and they never understand anyway. It's not even like my explanations are that technical. I don't use jargon to sound more impressive.


    And also, have you smoked pot before?
    Yeah... but sometimes, just made me paranoid.

    Agreed.

    Good to know. I tend to think this is inevitable.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    You should hit her/him up to smoke some time, if you haven't tried it. It's great stress relief for a short amount of time, if that's what you need. Although it will probably have the side effect of temporarily making you less intelligent and more lazy, so a Friday would be best. Unless you want to see whether anyone would notice if you were the opposite- really pleasant and not very competent.

    Any way you could like work little breaks or like mini enjoyments into the day? I know that really helps me. Just like slipping away for a minute, going to the bathroom, getting out on lunch, getting a coffee, whatever.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    My INTP has had people dumping their responsibilities on him at nearly every job he's worked at. One time one of his co-workers even told me they knew they didn't have to do stuff they were supposed to because they knew he would do it if they didn't. He usually made sure he knew almost all of the ins and outs of whatever business he was working in.

    It got him in the political toilet when he was managing the mail room at the Bible college we attended. Admissions had been sending out personalized letters as bulk mail, which is illegal. He told them that it was illegal and after that they couldn't pretend they didn't know (assuming they actually knew) and it hurt their budget. The director of admissions was a better ass-sucker than my husband and the administration treated him like crap after that.

    He isn't here for me to ask him what he does about his anger about such things, but he does drive a truck now, which is mostly solitary (though stuff still gets pushed off on him without any extra pay). I know he cusses and insults other drivers a lot because he's butt-dialed me from work before.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    It might not. It didn't happen to me the handful of times I've done it.
