In no specific order

- Health and Safety reps
- HR Consultants
- Time and Motion analysts

"Hate" is a bit strong though - I'd say more "similar discomfort to an ingrown pube" (if that even makes sense).

Health and Safety reps because the majority of my exposure to them is when they wander around a site picking holes in every thing they can find that is barely relevant to the task at hand OR suddenly go ostrich like when a very real and significant danger is identified and it's down-tools time. Work at heights and you're suddenly presented with a brown rainbow of every sweetcorn flecked flavour of H&S bullshit.

HR Consultants - underhand shits to a man.

Time and Motion analysts - if you're so good at pointing out how the job could be done quicker, then you do it you whinging fucker.

My apologies if you're actually a nice person trapped inside a shit's body and your forced to ply your trade in the above professions.

Twenty years as a teacher doesn't make you an able manager; managers are either born or taught or both. Willingly going along with a government policy which denies children a decent education but produces lots of lovely data just shows how spineless and/or unimaginative you are. While you sit in your office polishing numbers - your big fat salary cheque in particular - the social structure which the school should have is in meltdown because you won't back up those minions who really care and can see what's going on.

Damn, I'm not even at work. I'm being bitter in my own time - sod this for a lark.

Military HR incompetents
Some background, I work for the armed forces and was assigned to a remote area abroad with my regiment some time ago, (we have been there a while) I am not allowed to specify where exactly, but you can probably guess.

As part of the ‘peacekeeping’ effort we were assigned security duties outside of the main city and tasked to A. search suspicious vehicles and people going into the town that could be involved in insurgency directly or supporting and B. given specific targeted locals that we had to detain should they happen to try to get through our checkpoints.

Operating out of these conditions is extremely trying and hugely stressful as the threat is constant. We have little opportunity to relax as the local culture is a little outside of our experience to say the least and we are definitely not encouraged to mix! We are constantly tired and judgement gets eroded under these conditions.
After one long patrol, I was called into the commanding officer and charged with dereliction of duty as some local insurgents had apparently passed through our checkpoint without being detained. I had no representation to defend me against this despite having the right to have HR involved (we are getting progressive these days but it is a veneer only) I was made a scapegoat as the orders and intelligence we had been given were so non specific as to who were to detain the upper echelons were covering their arses as usual.
The other point is that the similarity of dress and appearance makes identification extremely difficult and the local language can lead to you being very confused and influenced especially as a lot of them have beards. I had absolutely no recollection (as did my squad) of this happening and doubt that it even took place.
I feel shafted first by the officers In charge and also HR who did nothing to help or support me and feel very disillusioned as a result.
None of this was taken into account as the insurgents had escaped to another province to continue the insurgency and have disappeared from those who are desperate to locate them before they do any more damage. I really don’t feel that this was my fault!

In short I was demoted and reassigned to a new military project far away from my mates and am awaiting to find out what my new duties will be when we become operational.
Yet another SNAFU but hopefully it will be a cushy assignment as we are far away from any trouble here in Alderaan.

It's a bit cheap to hate phone monkeys earning less than minimum wage, however, I do enjoy handing the phone to my 4yo daughter when they call.

Tax Refund Arseholes
This might just be a NZ thing, but I'm sick of getting accosted at the mall by someone who guarantees me a massive tax refund if I simply give them my details. The one time I was suckered into giving over my personals I received a bill from the taxman for $150-odd. Yet whenever I tell one of those pricks that after their spiel, they always pause and say "Well...that's very unusual. It certainly wouldn't happen with us!"

Whatever, cunt.

Most of you do wear women's clothing, though.

Television House Decorators.
I know that won't be their proper title, but I buggering hate them. They go to BEAUTIFUL houses with all sorts of interesting and wonderful things happening and make them ALL THE SAME.

Decorator 1: Oh yes! Here we have a beautiful old carved door. Whatever shall we do?
D1: Oh yes! I see your visions, my friend! Let us also take out anything nice and put a small grey bowl in that corner!
D2: FAB!

Stop ruining houses! They're not canvases. People have to live there! Homes should be comfortable, liveable, lovely and ace. Not white and black and empty with a patterned wallpaper on a ceiling nobody knows about finished with a small pebble from an Indian road that once lead to a tree! That's stupid!

Human Resources
They're not there to assist workers - they're there to assist managers in building cases against workers to keep them in line or get them fired. They wear fake smiles and are always so interested in how you're doing. Fuck em, they exist to maintain the bureaucratic hierarchy that makes modern corporations so successful (at the expense of their workers' individuality and self-respect). If any of you lot work in HR, I apologize, but I've yet to meet an HR worker I like.
