Just a little bit of venting from me (written in GT for speed):

>be me
>apply for a programming job at a local company
>interviewer says that he's impressed with my resume and says that he'll call me
>one week later
>"hey anon, drop by our office, you're hired!"
>hot diggity damn!
>papers say that it's a help desk job
>"oh don't worry about it, it's just that we don't have a programming sector yet"
>wtf the job offer was for programmers but w/e a job is a job is a job
>start working there. Really mineal shit like fixing entries on SQL, resetting modems, etc.
>decide to write a couple of scripts for more mechanical tasks such as gathering .xml for the accountant
>everything is peaches and gravy
>one day the boss calls me into his office
>"hey anon, you're fired!"
>ask him why
>tells me my coworkers ratted me out on the scripts, says that I'm cheating on the job
>ni🅱️🅱️a wut???
>try to explain myself to him but he won't listen
>get fired after 4 months of being the most productive member of the team

That serves me right for trying to be good at my shitty ass job. Oh well.

    Heck no
    That's really the exact opposite of what it should be.
    What you described is basically...extra work just to be occupied - because screw advancements we made, right?

    @ElToastGrande basically that.

    Sounds to me like this company will be going under sooner rather than later with an attitude like that. You dodged a bullet, you'll definitely find a better job out there

    @Ixquitilis you will get s phone call in a few months, it will go something like this: “Hey lxquitlis, business has picked up a bit and we could really stand to speed things up a bit. How do we use those scripts you wrote?”

    To which you will offer to implement new scrips as a contractor for 5x your previous rate.
