2, It sounds like nepotism got the kid the promotion. In which case, the original poster is in between a hard place and a rock. It happened all the time, at my last job.

What I just learned, that when they hire family members, if one of them quits/is terminated, the kin will follow. But it really is annoying. Everyone bitched to me about it as if I had some sort of control over it.

If he doesn't like it he should quit :) in all reality he has options if he isn't happy. But jobs are hard to come by, either he sucks it up, confront his boss, or quit. That's all, but he should be grateful he has a job though.

20, No, he should be happy and consider himself fortunate for having a job when others don't. He should not however be grateful, as clearly he is being taken for granted and having his skills abused. People shouldn't be grateful to those who fuck them over just because there are others in a worse situation. FYL, now give up on this wreck of a business and start looking for work somewhere that you will be appreciated. When you find said job, leave on good terms and don't look back. That way at

It's life, nobody died, lost their job etc so why complain? Move on and keep working. As long as Op has a warm meal on the table and a roof over his head. Nobody is pointing a gun to Ops head and forcing him to work there... As my mother would say "stop complaining and do somthing about it." agreed :)

That logic is flat out stupid. Why not extend it out, it isn't the end of the world, so why complain? Oh I dunno, maybe because someone is being treated unfairly, and by complaining they are able to get different points of view and make decisions about how to best handle the situation. Unfortunately they also get idiotic comments like "you should be grateful" and "why complain?"

And by not complaining and doing something about it, OP should take 78's advice and look for another job. Yes, the job he has now pays the bills, but it shouldn't make him miserable. OP, my dad has a saying for this type of situation. Move up or move out. If you can't get the promotion, and they keep treating you like that, then keep working there only long enough to find a new job.

97, that's your opinion :) and I have mine :) that's what makes the world go round dear. If we all thought the same, it'll be a boring place... But we don't. I respect others views, even yours, everyone who voices their opinions because it's free speech and I love it :D you like to insult people, I don't. But that's you, because it's free speech and I like to see other stand for what they believe in, regardless if they agree with me or not, or insult to get their point across.

Chances are the kid is either part of, or married into the boss's family. As long as his failures are minor, op can work at keeping the moron under the radar for years.

This kid doesn't have what I am assuming is the experience you do, but I am sure that he's not pulling the salary you are - even with his promotion. And yes - you are going to be fired or let go within 90 days. I'm sorry.

Or he's doing his job perfectly and his employer would rather keep him there than have to train a new person to do the job he already does flawlessly. Sucks, but it could be the case.

I take it your boss is a real "wenchfucker." I can't believe that would happen... That's total bullshit! I'd quit if I were you.. It's like the one dude from the previous FML that had to train and hire his new replacement... Bottom line: quit!
