#wwydwednesday: Respect in the workplace

Respect now is hard to come by and I don’t understand why. Are people not learning manners at home? Are people taking what they see in the media seriously? Do they feel worthless so they are bring people around them down too?

This topic is important especially at work because those are the hours we need to take things seriously. Making money isn’t something to joke about. If I was the boss for some of the places I’ve worked at more than half the people would be fired. I don’t know if I have an old soul or if I genuinely want to be kind but maybe it’s a little bit of both. When you step into a work environment you should leave your issues at the door. Don’t bring your issues in and cause problems. When I come into work I’m expecting a fun day because I want to enjoy my job. Who doesn’t want to enjoy their job? If you have to work with people with bad attitudes or can’t respect you why should you feel uncomfortable and walk on egg shells around them. I’m currently in a situation where I don’t know how to address someone without being rude myself because they choose to be up and down with their attitude. It’s hard to address someone in a way without being the bad guy espiecally if you’re in a leadership position. Honestly it’s an excuse when I hear this person is young they don’t know better or they don’t do it around me. When you aren’t the manager it’s certain things you can and cannot say. I’ve came to terms knowing people aren’t like me but when are in the same workplace we have the same goal which is make money. So why is it so hard to respect the team you’re on and make that money? 

If you were wondering this post is also a ranting session for me but if I’m going through this maybe someone is to. Are you having these types of issues in your workplace? How do you handle it? Leave comments below.
