Taken for Granted

How often do you feel you are taken for granted? I imagine everyone feels that way at some point. I have noticed it particuarly in the workplace.  A manager may not feel like staying late, so he or she asks a subordinate instead.  They want their freedom to go places and do things so suddenly the underling is appointed in their place.  Of course the worker staying late is being taken for granted.  They probably need the job, the income, the health insurance, etc.  They cannot afford to lose the job and while they are looking for something better, they are stuck. Sometimes the manager will even take credit for their work which is extremely unfair.  Although, statistics lately are stating that when people change their positions they are receiving a significant raise in pay. I think that is positive.  Being taken for granted in the home is a commonality. As mothers we are always taken for granted by our children which when they were young was a good thing. Now that they are adults it is another matter.  I saw on “The Pretender” a mother complaining about her adult son who was living in her basement. Of course the was taking advantage of his mother. No question about it. As a paralegal, I see adult children using their parents and then in the end cheating them. You don’t think about it yet the first time I was exposed to it I was mortified. I kept wondering why and how could they do it.  Yet, the sad part is that it is more common than you realize. It doesn’t matter the gender either. It can be a son or a daughter. Both are equally skilled at pulling this dastardly deed off. It makes you wonder, doesn’t it? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
