I'd Rather Take the Red Pill

If I can understood things perfectly, I’d suggest that everyone in the office is not what they appear to be. I know my boss is super temperamental and like to show a symptom of temper tantrum from time to time. But I believe that’s not my boss being mad, it’s just a project manager that is being mad, and she should be when she saw her staff not meeting her (or should I say, the company’s) expectation. She is not being herself, for she is just representing the value and standard of this company. She wears the mask of a project manager to get mad but other than that she is a nice person.

How can a job change human’s personality so drastically? I always wonder if it’s the fault of the system that force people under certain kind of standard in which they must follow. The system shapes people into whatever they need and people simply can’t resist it. Well, actually they can, except that it will make them disposable in the eye of the system. I am one of the people who resist on how the system is trying to shape me and without doubt I am met with so many resistance, either from my co-worker or from my boss. One of these days, I just can’t stand it anymore, and I’ll decide to quit. I guess it will be sooner than I thought.

However, I will never regret the opportunity to work in this place. Other than a ludicrous amount of money I get every months, I was allowed to meet with so many people I hate and I was allowed to understand why I hate them. My position on working becomes solidified that I understand perfectly: the nature of human is not to work, but to create. To be creative and not to be mechanic. I would not let people say otherwise.

Nobody is happy in the workplace, like seriously nobody. Everyone has to be someone they are not and everyone have to do something they don’t like. Everyone is Squidward and some people will be Mr. Krab, but no one is Spongebob. We are all miserable and we always beg to stop doing this. Most of us just won’t do that because it is too risky. For me, though, I’d rather take the Red Pill.
