Alright, so we have a janitor that cleans our building and the surrounding buildings everyday, like a janitor should.

She is an okay person, sweet enough, but besides hi and bye I don't really say much to her.

Well, this past Christmas, our entire office had to donate money to her and sign a card.  I was like whatever, you know, maybe she had some sort of crisis or emergency but no, we just fucking gave her $500 in cash for Christmas...for being the janitor.

Alright, whatever, even though if I was the janitor, I probably would have refused out of pride, I can let that slide.  Once a year, no big deal right?

Well, she's now nominated for an organization wide award that's worth $2,000 in cash for "going above and beyond" your job requirements.  Alright...I get it, nominate the little man out of some self-serving pride complex because we sit in nice office chairs and she cleans trash.  But...she fucking ASKED to be nominated!  THAT'S NOT HOW IT FUCKING WORKS!

The worst part?  She stands right next to my desk for 30 minutes each morning with her big trash can right next to my face and makes it smell like absolute shit.  She asks me for money ALL THE TIME...I brought in a muffin to work AND SHE STRAIGHT UP ASKED FOR HALF OF IT.  The fuck is this woman's problem?

AND SHE NEVER CLEANS MY DESK AREA...NOT ONCE IN MY ENTIRE TIME HERE.  NOT. ONCE.  She cleans the offices of my bosses, but then never cleans our area.

Also, she has HER OWN BREAK ROOM IN ANOTHER BUILDING.  The department took a storage room, cleaned it out and gave her her OWN FUCKING ROOM.  Not even the CEO has their own fucking break room.

So today she's interviewing for that award and I was told by my boss to drive her to the interview in the company car and pick her up.  THE FUCK?  WHY?  They wouldn't do that shit for me!

Look, I understand life as a janitor sucks.  The reality is that some people need to be fucking janitors.  And when they're janitors, they need to do their job and get paid like everyone else.  I have no problem with a nice gift for Christmas, but holy shit, she's not a fucking hero because she cleans our trash especially because SHE DOESN'T FUCKING CLEAN THE TRASH.

If she's hot, everything else shouldn't matter. Maybe she's trying to get your attention to use that trash can for something else?  So. Boss. Is She Hot? If not. Tell her to buzz off.

makes you feel any better, our cleaning people never clean our floors or offices. I think all they do is empty trash every day. They probably get like 11 dollars and hour too.

She's not hot, she's an old fat black woman.  And yeah, she gets even more than 11 an hour, I'd say she's been here long enough that she's making like 12-13 bucks an hour, with benefits.

We have recent graduate type people here that make the same amount of money as her I bet, but if I were to say we should all give them $500 just for making 12 bucks an hour I'd get laughed at.

And who asks your boss to be nominated for an award?

I've also talked to my bosses several times about this.  I assumed maybe since I'm black, they'd be like "well fuck if the one black guy here is saying we don't have to have some sort of self pity on the fat black lady maybe we can just go back to treating her like the janitor" but no.

Yikes! You just gotta be mean man, especially when she doesn't have a clue how annoying she is to you. You can do it very politely, but it's kinda weird she's asking for handouts, WTF is up with that? She's not homeless is she?

She does know she's annoying to me.  I literally don't say one word to her and have even told her straight up she needs to leave because I need to have space and be on task.  She left for one day and now is right back standing next to me every morning, asking me for food and money.  She will just straight up ask me for five bucks for no reason.

I am assuming she's not homeless because I know for a fact she's making over 12 dollars an hour plus benefits.  Yeah, I get it, that's not rich, but my point is we have young and mid 20 something entry level people here making the exact same amount of money and if I were to propose us giving them $500 bucks in a Christmas card I'd get laughed at.  She makes more than a fair wage for her job.

She is probably one of those fat fucks that go to walmart and get a motorized cart to do their shopping. She probably also is pampered from the government. (nothing to with skin color) just being a lazy fat bitch asking people for money. I'd probably do the same thing man, I'd give in just because I'm too nice when shit like that happens. Is there someone you can complain too? Although doing that (going over her head) that might piss her off to do something to your office/space or something when you're not there. People that cleaned got caught stealing shit from people's desk on a regular basis. Luckily, we got cameras around now.

So I just picked her up and on the way back, I turned into our garage in a "one way street", which is just this entrance that's exit only, but not really if you have an official vehicle.

The first thing she tells my boss is "THAT BOY CAN'T DRIVE HE WENT UP A ONE WAY STREET"

well, you're welcome for the ride bitch and also she got the award...and I looked into the award and she was running against like attorneys and directors and stuff like that.

And I have spoken to several people about that but they all act like I'm an asshole or something.  I mean shit I get it, she's a janitor but we have much harder working people in this office (not saying me) that should have been nominated.

I'm sure there are OTHER janitors or groundskeeper types that are more deserving...it's not the fact she's a janitor (although honestly it should be very hard for a janitor to WIN this award) it's that she's not even a good janitor.  It's just like "oh she's the poor janitor, let's throw her a bone".

I literally ignore her for the most part.  Like do not say a word or even look at her and she just stands next to me for 30 minutes each day.  I have a big boss she calls "mama" that she sucks up too, but it's mostly because she just annoys the fuck out of me.  If she stood next to my boss for 30-45 minutes each morning I know this office would be singing a different tune.

she shouldn't have that much time to stand there for 30 minutes. Is nobody else back there to see she's fucking around killing time driving you nuts?

IN all seriousness man, I brought my bose headphones from home and I put those on. If you can do that, maybe she'll really take the hint you have no interest talking to her. Jam to some AC/DC and block it out.

I have a customer that keeps asking me for his OS-114's that I prepared for him four years ago.  I don't keep copies of state quarterlies and I give the finished product, plus a client copy and prefilled/stamped envelopes to them.  It's their responsibility to send it out and maintain copies.  I simply prep and sign them.  Yet this fuck face keeps coming back saying that his new accountant needs them.  Well your new accountant can call the fucking state and find out which ones you did and did not mail in.  He can then ask you for your fucking bank statements and qualified deductibles so that he can prepare them himself.  You'd think after being told this for an entire year that he'd get it through his thick fucking skull.  Or is your "accountant" one of the 18 other illegal immigrants that live in your home (he didnt think I'd find out about that.) that also work for your landscaping company for which you bought workers comp insurance on the basis that you only made $60K and had two employees despite the fact that you make over $300K and have 10+ employees.  Fucking asshole, I swear.  

When I get to the office today I'm going to have to deal with his shit again.  And he still wonders why I stopped doing his paper work for him and told him to get insurance elsewhere.

Out of all of the people in the school system here, I think the most of our Janitors,    some of the other schools just have Special ED dropouts but I pretty much have the jackpot of solid guys who just ended up a janitor,   one of them has a martial arts history that would make Chuck Norris say DAMN!, runs a successful dojo in his off time, one is about 70 years old and starting to work on his computer skills by taking various microsoft classes..

The one that impressed me the most is gone now, but he came in about 3 years back when the recession first hit,  he ran his own business and it came crumbling down, the man never took a second to pity himself he just took the first job he could find to keep his family supported, took pride in his work and eventually moved on to something bigger..    that was a good guy.

Elitist tone?  She is a janitor who's qualified to be a janitor.  She does her job to standard and gets paid accordingly, plus healthcare and retirement.  I'm sure there are harder working janitors than her and I am sure there are people who need $500 buck Christmas cards and $2,000 award bonuses for a variety of reasons over her.

There's nothing elitist about understanding the only reason she's getting these things is out of pity and some sort of reaffirmation by my bosses.  She does her job okay, but not well.  She never cleans the front part of our office and has cleaned my area a grand total of 0 times.  I mean, I don't give a shit, but if you're a janitor, that's part of your job.

If she asks for it and they give it to her, you can't blame her. You could break her hands though and make janitorial work impossible for her. Then she'd just get disability.



Looks like you're gonna have to kill her, I'll get the acid to melt her down later

I can't blame her, but I also can't act like everyone else in this office and feel inspired about it.  She's not an inspirational story, she's a janitor.  There's nothing good, or bad about that.  That's her job.

I'm a janitor over the weekend at my current job, that job sucks, but I always go 110% on the job... sounds to me like she's barely pushing 70%. I deserve that 2,500 more than her and I'm only a janitor 2 days of the week. -_-

The expectations are of her to come in, clean the place, and go home right?  And she doesn't even do that completely?  I 100% agree with you.  What does she do that's "above and beyond" her role as a janitor?  And why did she get her own break room?

Our custodians don't clean either.  They'll move my keyboard, mouse, and phone everyday to make it look like something was cleaned, while allowing dust to collect on the back cabinets in my office.  My expectations are that my janitor has some type of cleaning schedule.  Even if she can't get everything every night, everything should at least be touched in the course of the week with other areas such as restrooms being done daily.  That's the expectations.  Going above and beyond would mean having breakfast ready for us when we arrive.

Everytime the janitor at my elementary school would see me throwing out garbage, he would stop me and say "How would you like it if I put my junk in your can?"
He was bread to hate, but that should be the yeast of our worries.

Every moment and every event of every man's life on earth plants something in his soul.
