Talk to your boss and see why you haven't got an promotion yet? But by the way at least you have a job :)
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 **** 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 least if things go south you may have something to fall back on. If they offer you a promotion or raise, decline it. You now know that no matter what happens the only way you can progress within this company is by threatening to leave. These people have nothing more to offer anyone.
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.
He shouldn't be your responsibility. But there has to be a way to at least improve him a little bit.
