I fundamentally do not understand how some people can fail to do their jobs on such a basic level and yet not get fired.  If I did something like, forget to attend a hearing or fail to timely file a pleading, I would be fired without so much as a tip to not let the door hit me in the ass on my way out.  Yet I’m surrounded by people who neglect even the most basic of their job duties and continue to collect paychecks.

What am I doing wrong??
