My company has me on IT because I know how to use Microsoft office.

Love it. Making $10.50 an hour (22K a year). In a busy week I'll put in maybe 5-6 hours of work. When the company got nuked I backed up our entire engineering and doc control data bases which are stored on my D drive as well as our cloud and a redundant external drive. Neither the owner or his wife have a clue what to do with that data so there's my job security. I do the jobs of a half dozen positions (including Linny's old job). Doc control, design/drafting, project management, customer service, operations, and QC. The owner's wife handles all of the money stuff. The owner spends his time on new business development and business relations with the banks and our factories - he's in China right now.

The added bonus is that the three of us (who prior to the nuking were already incredibly close - Sherri use to babysit their 3 girls when we first moved out here in the late 90s) have become like family. The company Xmas party last year was Jeff, Yvette, Linda, and me. (partied at Richard Blais's place downtown). Bill had to be at least $350.

eh love/hate

made some very close friends in my 3+ years here but ive been recently living with the "don't shit where you eat" explosion and my work itself has gradually gone from interesting and engaging to tedious over the past few months. actively looking but also trying not to make a lateral move

It's voluntary. For the record I was making six figures 5 years ago. We've all taken hits to help the company survive. Owner and wife sold their stunning home and moved into a small condo. Owner's mom and dad (who started the company) no longer draw salaries.

Except for my monthly rent of $700 and electric bill ~$50, I basically have no bills. Plus they're paying my insurance - which is a killer plan. The bill for my 5150 was over $16K (WTF) My out of pocket was less than $400.

my job is pretty cool for the most part. there are a few toxic employees who kinda ruin the whole thing at times and i'm like 80% convinced one of them is a sociopath....

but yeah aside from that i enjoy it. i also get a lot of time during the day to play around on the internet and listen to music so that's hard to beat.

Sociopaths tend to be really cool and friendly though. Are you sure he's not just a dick?

i'm no expert but he definitely matches the description enough for me to think it's highly plausible.

Nah sociopaths can be socially incompetent just like regular people. Just because you're manipulative doesn't mean you're any good at it.
