Smiles and positive posts are all well and good, but sometimes I need to vent a bit. How about you? That’s what The Monday Peeve is all about, a chance to blow off a little steam at the beginning of the week, so then we can go merrily on our way once again (hah). I’ll pick a topic that’s on my mind, but you can vent about whatever you please, here in comments or on your own blog. Grab the photo, use the #TMP tag, and link back to me (or not ~ I dgaf), and Bob’s yer uncle. I do reserve the right to delete any links that offend my delicate sensibilities. So far, none have, but it could happen! I have feelings!
Just the other day I worried I wouldn’t have anything to peeve about because I wasn’t going out much and getting annoyed. But then I logged into LinkedIn! Omg, that site is more irritating than ever. I know I’ve complained about it before, but it has not been an official TMP topic ~ now it is. My specific gripe is that it’s turned into FB lite. Not content with giving us space to post our resumes/profiles, connecting us with others in our fields, and helping recruiters find a way to contact us, LinkedIn now has this increasingly non-job related “feed.”
Just as you would expect, people are dumping garbage into that feed, stuff that has absolutely no relevance to anything career-related. Forex, this jerk I’m a first level connection with had all these “likes” and reposts of typical rightwing bullsh*t conspiracy theory articles. What the hell does all this have to do with working? Nothing! I reported some for being inappropriate. I also muted that guy. But I did not delete him from my contacts because I have only a very few number of connections to begin with. What if (Gd forbid) I have to look for a new job someday? Employers apparently care about this number. It’s dumb, but so is everything now! 😡😡😡
