Donkey

Figuratively my boss kicks me like a donkey, oftentimes in group email chain. Do something, do it faster, what’s the answer? And like a donkey I stop moving, stubbornly shutting down. I’ll move again when I damn feel like it.

For the life of me, I can't understand why Marxian economics is being discussed again…

There are so many business begging for reliable help it should be easy enough to leave those bozos behind you in the wake of your boat.

The planets just aren't that in to you. Like much of pseudoscience, astrology counts on subjective rationalizations of abstract claims. There's no valid science behind it. It makes absolutely no sense to read daily horoscopes in newspapers. There is no rational way to explain how 1/12 of the population will inexplicably “meet the woman of your dreams” the same day. It is just smoke and mirrors. The people who write that nonsense basically overshoot and try to lay out multiple guesses for gullible people to believe. Most the time it doesn’t hit anything and when it does most people are like “OMG! How did he know!?” and right away completely ignore that 99% of the time it is wrong.

So…

Playing devil’s advocate for a minute…has it occurred to you that your boss is responsible to ensure sure the employees are actually doing what they’re supposed to be doing? Maybe you’re not performing your job up to acceptable standards? So if your immediate response to being told to act on something, do something faster, answer a question, etc, is to shut down stubbornly, you’re displaying a major problem with authority. Maybe your boss has poor communication skills, but unless you address your own lack of communication (or other) skills it isn’t going to matter where you work because you’re going to find the same issues in other places. If you really can’t handle having a boss then maybe you’ll need to go into business for yourself.

Yes but as those types love to do they'll make them pay for leaving in other ways. Nothing like attacking someone's character for these types, to as many people as they can of/c.

Agree in regard to horoscopes and to some extent popular astrology that considers only the Sun, Moon, and Rising signs.

I was being flippant about the Taurus thing, though the OP’s statement is resonant with the Taurus archetype.

However, astrology gets fascinating when you look at the totality of a natal chart in relation to a person’s character, transiting planets in relation to major global events, transits and secondary progressions in relation to major life events, etc.

Used correctly, it can be a great tool for gaining a better understanding the self and the world.
