Been here before, I think. Holding, waiting to exhale, waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Restlessness, anticipation of uncomfortable change.

So many of my friends are having similar job-related angst. A lot of it seems to stem from similar conditions: simple lack of respect for them as a human being. Simple things, like common courtesy. SOmetimes more complex things, like realizing that a person is not a machine.

I have my own set of angstiness. I'm pretty aware of where it comes from, and I try to fixulate it. Doesn't always work.

But I'm finding myself stalling. Squirrel dancing, thrashing, being exhausted in every sense of the word.

Gah. Maybe I need to stop for a while. But I don't know how to.

Amen to that, brotha!!! Our company's attitude since I was hired 6 years ago has devolved into hard numbers. How many items per hour can we push through. It's even gotten to the point where we're now "talked to" if we are doing anything that is deemed as possibly slowing us down. Including: eating sunflower seeds, or playing DVD movies in the background (which have been seen previously & are merely meant to entertain us at work, not actually watched!!). I heard some talk about not using our IM very much also, as it is seen as being a production killer. And at our last meeting, we were told that we a) have to do more in less time, and b) utilize some new drop-down options which affect pricing for our customers (even though our dept. doesn't handle actual pricing)!!! It's rediculous!
