Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: I refuse to contribute


So the day by day continues, yet still he does not see.
In previous posts I mentioned in one way or another the mentality and actions of one of my co-workers. I will add to the painting of the imagery of this man. So in hopes it will help those out there with the eyes to see and the ears to hear.
This man goes about reading the Bible, yet talks about things not found within the Bible. Most at work, both sinner and saint see him for what he is. A sham. A phony. A hypocrite. A lukewarm.
However he sees himself as the “select,” the “chosen,” the “few.”
I once told him about Ephesians 6:5-9, and how when we go to work and how we work is for God. We are the light the living witness of Christ unto the world. His reply: I was ignorant. Not realizing that when he said that he called the Word of God ignorant and so that God Himself was ignorant.
Now that the painting has been made clearer. I will address the new issues.
We are allotted a set amount of time to accomplish our jobs at the place I work at. Each person in his/her own tasks, but sometimes it is required for other to assist in the other persons work.
I have one of the latter jobs. In it the person in question is assigned an hour to make it possible for him to assist me so I can accomplish my assigned duties.
So I check my jobs time to time to make sure I am staying near my limits since each job even though the same has issues that can arise to throw the time needed off.
Well anyway, I saw this job and it was WAY out of range. So I check the time usage. Mine were right where they should be. His contribution six hours over.
He just doesn’t get it.
When you call yourself “Christian” all we do is for God. ALL WE DO!
So when you ride time like this it is not against the co-worker, the employer or the customer that is being abused. IT IS GOD!
We answer directly to God. God is our employer, and when this abuse takes place it is Him we are denigrating.
I refuse to partake in this. I will not contribute to his open insult to the Lord God Almighty.
When possible I will tell him I will not allow him to add to his sins against our Creator. For I honor God and refuse to continue to insult Him.

The privileged few ….. government employees


I live daily knowing that if I mess up, commit a false action or steal from the company I work for I will be fired. There are those that do not live under this threat and so that is exactly what they do. They mess up, the commit false actions and they steal, DAILY. Who are they? Government employees.
They actually have laws that make it so they cannot be fired. This is wrong and is something that needs to be changed as soon as possible.
Recently in California, a lawsuit allowed people to be judged on their merit not on how long they worked for the schools. This is the best thing that has ever happened.
I have worked in a union and the worst employees are those that have worked the longest. They know they are untouchable so they mess up and do nothing because they know nothing can be done to them. This again is wrong. If you mess up you need to be fired.
Most of those in the United States live with this over their heads every day and they do their best, for the most part, and keep their jobs.
Now we have those in the IRS and the VA that cannot be fired even though it has been proven they have broken other laws. They need to be fired and/or jailed.
