Oak Park, IL is the asshole Coworker who stresses you out that much that if something happens to them you really don’t care.

I recently heard news about this ex-coworker of mine who died early at 37 due to cancer, wait before you start with the condolences this dude was a dick, much like the boss from office space. The organization that I work for had him in charge of Operations, to Quality Assurance, to Training and Development this fuck was everywhere in the organization because he was a kiss up and yes man.

But the jerk was soooooo incompetent that he did not grasp the essentials to do the job, so he was literally training people wrong and getting them in trouble for not knowing procedures when they came out of training. He is the reason I am studying Training and Development because if his ass oversaw a department for it, then I can do it too, easily. As the director of Quality assurance, he was a fuck up, the stuff he marked people off was head scratching to the point the management staff got pissed off at him. Why? Because the management, in turn, would have to use “corrective measures” on employees to make sure it did not happen again, therefore employees were given verbals, written warnings and even fired due to his asshole behavior.

When confronted that he was wrong on the Quality Assurance reports he would argue it even if you had the policy HE wrote about the how to proceed in that situation which contradicted it. The point is when a friend told me the news I was not even sad, I have lost friends and family to cancer before however they did not go out their ways to be total fucking dicks and in essence, worthy of sentiment.

Fucking with people is the way of Oak Park, IL in the same vein. It is why when shit happens here, people in neighboring suburbs and the City of Chicago, really do not “feel” for the residents or victims of Oak Park, IL. Changing one’s attitude and not imposing your ridiculous standards upon people i.e.: not being a douche bag will most likely get you some sympathy or “get better cards” or even a helping hand. With all the crime that is occurring in Oak Park, IL a change is needed and a helping hand is necessary. But I think much like this ex-coworker the problems here will persist until a major problem arises, and there is nothing that can be done about it. If you gave me a choice of pissing off an entire organization of people and going out at 37 or maybe learn how to work with others to get something done and maybe tack on a couple of years, I would pick the latter. Hopefully, Oak Park, Il will one day choose the latter but I doubt it.

PS: I own up that it is a shitty attitude, but there are times when organizations or people push you to the point that you have nothing but apathy for them.
