From the title of this post, you already know what this rant will be about.
Yesterday was my full three months of working at the accounting firm as an intern/assistant. My pay to begin with was low but I wasn’t complaining much since I got offered the job without any interview or anything really. But now that my “probation” period had just come to end, I find it extremely insulting and degrading with the new pay rate. I’ve never found myself to work harder at any job in the past, and these three months were the most intense I’ve had, especially with it being tax season and learning from the start. I find myself to be more upset at the insult of the new pay rate, rather than the pay itself. I know it is a tough economy out there and anyone else would gladly take my job if I whine about it for another second. But I guess that is human nature.
People are always going to complain and say how things could be better. But rarely does being appreciative and thinking on the bright side come to mind first.
For now, all personal luxury items will be put on hold. But i’m still surprising my grandma with a Burberry coat. Now I just need to find it. The deal would be way sweeter if there was a sale that’s coming up but that’s just rare.
Back to work!
