genuinely, the best advice I ever got at work was: slow down.
@jacethechicken find excuses to both walk AND sit down! Rest and exercise are both crucial to your mental health.
@jacethechicken seeing a lot of this shit on my fb TL and I’m sad that my family and friends can’t see how brainwashed they are.
Never do work you aren’t being paid to do.
@jacethechicken The thing about it that kills me is how it hijacks a communal work ethic for the benefit of the ownership class. "We're all in this together." Homie we are fucking NOT.
@sweetmercury @jacethechicken What if I like to do the job I am not getting paid specifically for? E.g., I once worked as a dev, and we were given a task "put the button on this page". My cw approved the page that was half-baked, and the button was in a shitty place. I didn't like the layout and tried to fix it. For me, it was an interesting job and I enjoyed doing it in the time, that was allocated for the first mentioned task. My cw said it was not his job, and he is not getting paid for that.
