Tumblr Post: A Flight Attendant's Wildest Stories

There's no doubt that it's been a historically difficult year, and some professions have had to muddle through this storm of overwhelming chaos more than others.

"Not My Job" Moments of Dubious Professionalism

It's easy to say that "straight line painter" isn't in your job description as a "line painter," but that decision makes for some very creative looking roads. These impressively unprofessional "not my job" moments may be poor excuses for well done tasks, but they're definitely spectacles. If nothing else, these "not my job" moments sure got the job done-ish.

Work Memes to Blunt the Daily Grind

Work sometimes feels like a total racket, but it's something we all have to do, so at least there's that. In addition to knowing your coworkers have to go through the same thing, there's also work memes to help get through the day. Do work memes make work easier? Not necessarily. But they are a pretty decent alternative.

Work Memes To Get Through The Day

The problem with having to feed yourself is that it costs money, and people only give you money for doing stuff they don't want to do themselves. Even if you like your job, it gets tiring. That's why it's at least nice to know that it's a feeling everyone has, and a handy dose of work memes can deliver a shot of catharsis in an otherwise cumbersome situation.

People's "I Don't Get Paid Enough for This" Moments

At some unfortunate jobs, your boss doesn't pay attention to your job description, and will make you do whatever you're willing to do. At other jobs, you're basically a punching bag for mindless customers. There's so much a person is willing to take for ten bucks an hour, and there are times when we're compelled to say "screw this, I'm out."

"Not My Job" Moments of Questionable Professionalism

Most of us pride ourselves on being at least halfway decent at our jobs. Sometimes things get forgotten, done too quickly, or done by exactly the wrong person. What we get are "not my job" moments of quality unprofessionalism. The world is populated with crap infrastructure, stupid signs, and painted over spiders because somewhere along the line someone said, "eh, not my job."
