I don’t know if I’d have the balls to do it, quit a job I was qualified for just because it didn’t fulfill my needs. I’m way too focused on paying my bills, but according to The Wall Street Journal women in Japan are far more likely to quit a career if it’s unrewarding to them.

A whopping 74% of Japanese women with degrees voluntarily quit their jobs, far more than the 31% of Americans, according to a new study from the Center from Work-Life Policy, a New York-based think tank. But the more alarming figure is yet to come: The study released Friday called “Off-Ramps and On-Ramps Japan: Keeping Talented Women on the Road to Success,” shows that nearly half of working women in Japan throw in the towel because they feel their careers are in a chokehold. Meanwhile, compared with 74% of women in the U.S. and 82% in Germany, just 32% of Japanese women leave the workforce for childcare-related reasons, though the gap may be attributed to the smaller pool of working mothers in Japan compared to Western countries.

And, we’re not just talking food service workers, we’re talking qualified women with degrees! I absolutely couldn’t do it, I’d be too scared, and their economy is suffering for it apparently but still – have to give them credit for doing what’s right for them!

I’ve decided that I’m going to press charges against the computer chair at work. I’ll file malpractice! Why? Because it doesn’t do anything that it claims to do, and it’s unsafe – the proof is that I’ve fallen out of the damn thing at least three times in as many days! Lol.

I’ll take it to court and ask for the harshest punishment, and maybe then after my chair has gotten ‘the chair’ I’ll go out and buy myself a little pastel mint green retro, plush number to sit my fanny in. I so need a break from this chair.

Ugh, I hate working in customer support. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy helping people and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get a kick out of the idea that our support staff can handle any problem with a big, Disneyland smile, but some people are just not happy unless they’re ruining your day and that’s what I’m dealing with right now.

See, this chick keeps screwing up her email by going in via FTP and messing with the account files outside of publc_html, and every time she screws it up she comes to us with an “It’s broken” complaint. So we go in, fix it and say, “Do you know how this happened?” and her answer is always, “Well, all I tried to do was ____!” and it always means she’s renamed, deleted or corrupted something. Well, today I told her that for the sake of the server we’ll have to ask her not to mess around with those files, that they are the way they are for a reason and now she’s telling me that we’re horrible support, and that she pays for her space ( she doesn’t, she’s a friend of my mom’s so she gets it for free meaning I have to pay for it and her domain name ) and we should be grateful for her business. She even suggested that *she* tells *me*, not the other way around. ARGH.

Why are some people just so hell bent on ruining your day? I just…want her and her KMart Jacklyn Smith Collection outfit to stay the hell away from me, lol.

Ooh, I found a place to shop for gifts for Bossman! He’d love to think he’s an athlete and a huntsman, lol, and pretty much all he does is golf but I know for a fact he’d be giddy over all of the deer hunting products they’ve got over at H&R Business Mall like their Deer Feeder, because deer hunting’s such a big pass time out here in the boonies. H&R Business Mall ships factory direct, so all of the products they sell are the latest, newest versions and never the outdated or discontinued stuff.

Ugh, I am so tired. Blah. I’m tired of being tired, and of being redundant, lol. I’m just not sleeping well, I’ve got too much to do these days and I end up missing out on everything and anything that may have been fun or peaceful. On top of that crap my boss just unloaded three more projects on me, as if I have time to blog let alone work more. And what am I supposed to say, no? I’m not in a position to say no, so I bitcheth on my blogeth, lol.

Hope everyone had a great holiday season, I’ve still got 6 pagan holidays, New Years and Chinese New Year to look forward to so I’m still truckin’, lol. The nice thing about being a heathen, well amongst other nice things, is that we really never run out of holidays and so I can buy stupid things I don’t need ( hah, as if I don’t need the entire Enchanted Worlds collection! :P ) and call them holiday purchases, lol. I seriously need to make more cash, though, I rarely actually buy anything, so everything I DO buy I feel bad for buying, but since it’s the holidays I tried to put that out of my mind so I could indulge in presents for friends and family.

I may be working in the capital, though, come this spring or summer. They have an assistant job open that pays upwards of 30 large a year, maybe 35 depending on who, exactly, I work for. Either way it’s over triple what I make now, for less work, and I’ve practically been promised the job so, it’s just a matter of transportation.
