At My New Job

I seriously do not have to do any work before lunch. I have like 16 projects right now and everything I have to do with them can be taken care of between the hours of 2 and 3 in the afternoon.

This is ridiculous.

Also, my boss planned a meeting with me. And then he didn't come into the office that day.

You KNOW how I get pissed off when 1) my boss doesn't bother coming to work 2) people don't show up for meetings that THEY schedule.

What's really extremely strange to me is that I have people come to me with the stupidest projects and when I get them done, they're ecstatic. I'm not kidding. They're projects that require a single email or a single phone call. I pick up my phone. Dial. Speak. And suddenly there's a party.

For real. I've had like a dozen of these already and one of the account managers wrote an email to my boss talking about how great it is to have me here.

I can't decide if I'm being overpaid or I'm just very, VERY overqualified for this job.

Some people might enjoy a job where they get paid to pretty much sit around for 8 hours a day, but I don't. I can be bored and waste time at my house. Or, better still, I can use my time for something productive elsewhere.

And the more I think about it, the more I think that I'm doing my career a disservice by staying here. This is kind of a step back and while it will flesh out my resume a bit, it could also undermine the management experience I already have.

There are good things about working here, but seriously? I might have to update my resume sooner than I thought because this shit sucks, yo. For reals.
