Zero-Hour Hell

Right now as I write this post I am sat at a desk in a call center. I have lost all motivation to do the job and will not book any shifts next week. I am rebelling from the powers that be and refusing to play the game.

In this employee hell which I am living, I no longer choose to be the prawn in this game of psychological chess.
