"Putting In My Two Weeks"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This song is about a job that I left in October 2002. For two years, I worked at a movie theatre called Silver City. I worked hard, but in the weeks leading up to my quitting my job, I was given a lot of door (ticket taker) shifts. For these shifts, I would stand behind my podium and wait for people to come to me so that I could take their tickets. Aside from that, I would have to find my own work to do, all the time knowing that I was capable of much more. All this waiting made the days go by extremely slowly, and therefore took the fun out of my job. I tried to save my job by talking to Jason, the manager in charge of scheduling. Jason is the most unpopular manager at Silver City and obviously could not care less if I was unhappy. He said he would do something about my schedule, but he never did. Instead he would just lie and make up excuses. This song explains how I feel about the whole situation. I have censored the explicit lyrics.
Have you ever been pushed around or just not listened to?
Well, I have - for months now I've wished that this isn't true
I'm so sick of being pushed aside, look at the times
Sick as the mind of one manager who leaves me behind
It just keeps going, me knowing there's things I want to be throwing
All this gets more depressing, now he has got to be joking
Not taking nothing from no one, after I've worked my hardest
He kicked my ass and ignored me cuz he does not know who Mark is
Is he really paying attention or is he just plain dumb?
And what's been done for me? See, I couldn't even name one
Look at me now, I bet you're probably sick of me now
Ain't you Jason? I'ma make you look so ridiculous now!

Hey Silver City
I never meant to hurt you
I only wanted to help out
But today, I'm putting in my two weeks (One more time)
Hey there Silver City
I never meant to hurt you
I only wanted to help out
But today, I'm putting in my two weeks

I've got some offerings for what I could do and I've brought ideas to 'em
But before I said anything I just wish that I'd knew him
Cuz I would do none; I'll take you back to November last
Before I knew my time at Silver City would never last
I was a player, nothing more than that like I am today
That f***ot Jason must've thought that I'd have nothing to say
Cuz I'd try; I wonder why he never gave me a shot
You know what? It doesn't matter why he just played me a lot
I look around me, and I think, "Am I just wasting my time?"
Even if I hung around, I'd grit my teeth and I'd try to
Make it work with him and stop what's going on cuz I don't want to be gone
Sure, we're only human, but why can't he just admit that he's wrong?
What he did was stupid, no doubt it was dumb
I'd like to see that f***ot try escaping out of this one
To him I'm nothing - well, except for being a ticket taker
It's my job, I'd like to welcome y'all here to Famous Players


Now I would never diss my employer just to get recognition
But I can't believe he'd do this after all that I've given
Now I just want a new position; it seems that he's missin
The fact that I'm not asking much; man I just wish that he'd listen
Commission's not the thing that I just wanna see, dawg, it isn't
But instead the clock is tickin and I can't move a smidgen
The whole time that I've been here I've tried to give it my all
Put in some effort, that's no better cuz he ain't heeding my calls
Why y'all? Wasn't that the reason why you raised my salary, boss?
So that I wouldn't notice when you turned your back on me, boss?
Well, guess what, I know you better now, I can see what you're doing
I've got it all figured out now, who do you think you're fooling?
My confidence in my job now, I can't see it, it's dying
But you'll never beat me, you don't even know that you're lying!
See, what hurts me the most is you won't admit that you're wrong
This can't go on, how could you have troubled me for so long?
But how dare you try to take what you didn't help me to get
You f***in f*g - I hope you f***in burn in hell for this sh**!
Remember all those dead door shifts that you just gave all to me?
Well, guess what, I'm dead too - dead to you as can be!
