It's Spring Break and I see my fellow teachers on social media at unmasked indoor events. After Winter Break these are the same teachers out with covid, sticking us with subs and a lot of chaos. Teachers are regular people. I know a lot of regular people attend unmasked events and travel at this time of year but some of us are careful and I have a feeling we will be picking up the slack for the ones who haven't learned their lesson. I took a covid test today. It was negative. Because I'm not trying to get or spread covid!

It all started with people somehow being so fucking stupid that they thought fucking *rump would be a good idea for president. People have just gotten exponentially more nasty, vapid, and stupid since 2016. I really believe that. I think covid made it worse, but I really and truly believe that motherf*cker ruined everything. Nice job, morons that voted for him. Life in general has just gotten so much more shitty. For everyone. I suppose, however, that none of this would have happened if our educational system wasn't a tragic joke. Not blaming teachers. Republicans did this. They LOVE their uneducated people. They don't try to hide it. It's the idiots that vote for them. They are well aware.

I'm tired of students hitting me. For real. If you're thinking, "Why are you letting them hit you?" come down here and try to stop them. I'm not LETTING them do anything. This year's kindergarteners are DIFFERENT and I have never in ten years of teaching seen so much outrageous behavior. Some parents want to scream that it's because of masks or because the big bad teachers union kept the schools closed during a GLOBAL PANDEMIC- I swear some of these children are such a mess because they spent more time with THEIR PARENTS last year. I never say this but some of these folks need to PARENT THEIR CHILDREN. There are kids who will straight up say, "I don't want to!" if you ask them to participate in learning. Where did they get this idea that this is an acceptable way to speak to adults? I love kids. I just need to vent. I got punched, kicked, and slapped in the face today. If you know a teacher, hug a teacher! We are not okay!

Also- this is the only place I can talk about my job (nobody wants to hear this shit - lucky ya'll) so I post here a lot. And not a lot of other people do, so there's a whole lot of me here. Also- I really can't leave this job unless I want to go from a ten minute commute to commuting a few hours a day. To go to a job where people will also be vapid idiots, and I probably wouldn't be paid as much.

People will be stupid wherever I go. I've been doing this kind of work for a long ass time and I can tell you straight up- people are dumber than they've ever been. And what gets me is that they don't care! They refuse to listen, or follow instructions, they ask me to help keep them in compliance and then do the exact thing I tell them not to do and then they blame me when their shit is all fucked up. There is a really disturbing trend of willful ignorance. Which is basically fraud. And there's a mean-spirited-ness that wasn't there before. There is literally a dog-eat-dog mentality EVERYWHERE and no cooperation at all. Anywhere. Employers are more selfish than I've ever seen. Employees feel hopeless and helpless. And meanwhile- business is BOOMING and business owners are making money hand over fist! I feel like the whole fucking world is upside down. This covid shit has changed everything. Everyone is different. Not for the better. Including me.

In response to a confession. If you're the OP always complaining about how awful your job is, can't you look for a new one? Not trying to be snarky, just curious. It seems like you're miserable and hate it.

I'm in my office talking to myself (or to a client's paperwork), "Why? Why would you do that? What the f*ck?" And I can hear my coworker in her office doing the exact same thing, "Oh piss on it, he's gonna do what he wants anyway".... this used to be a fun place to work. Once upon a time.

My sciatica is BAD right now. Every day at work I average 6k steps and 12 flights of stairs. Please send healing vibes my way because I've had this off and on for a couple of years and I feel like it just isn't getting better this time.

OMG the words "I ordered checks for that savings account in November but I didn't write any checks" just came out of his mouth. *headdesk* Really? You ordered checks? For your savings account? Oh my god. I need a drink. And I have nobody to vent to so whoever's reading this website get to hear all about it.
