Day 24 Asshole coworkers watching porn at work?

Is it just me or is this website slow? Any who, day 24. Not much new going on. I have been very busy with 14 units at school. I wish I could say the same for work. I have been working in construction with this particular company for the last 8 years and I couldn't be more excited to finish school and leave. The longer I remain sober from Marijuana and Porn the more I have grown apart from my coworkers. They are truly terrible people. I am so sick and tired of how they constantly put down everyone, rudeness, racist remarks and so forth. They show little respect for anybody who crosses their path. And when your around miserable people, it makes you miserable too.

For the most part I have been able to bury these feeling of resentment because I have been collecting a steady paycheck, enough to pay my mortgage and school fee. But in recent weeks Construction has literally come to a halt out here. I have had several days off this week and instead of expressing my anger towards the company I have been keeping it all bottled up inside me. I try to not waste energy being upset with the company and instead use these days off as motivation to finish school faster. The things I would give up to collect a nice salary and not have to deal with moronic, rude,racist behavior on a daily basis. I should note that just about all my coworkers suffer from a series of addictions. They all smoke Marijuana, binge drink after work, smoke cigs, porn etc. These guys will literally pull up porn ON their smartphones and prop it up on a table nearby to watch WHILE they are working. Does anybody have coworkers like this? How do you deal with it? Part of me just wants to quit but I will have little luck finding a job that pays enough to pay my mortgage until I finish school, or at the very least, economy picks up.

Serenity now!!!

Complain to HR

Given the inherent hazards of construction work, isn't having distracted co-workers a safety risk? I'd file a complaint with HR or whoever is in charge of personnel at once. (Since you need this job, use the word "unprofessional" instead of "offensive".) Somebody over your head won't want to keep signing paychecks for people who are watching porn instead of doing their jobs.

Good luck.

Sorry for the spelling in

Sorry for the spelling in this response as I am writing this from my phone. My boss does not care, in fact he finds it hilarious. My boss may be the most rude of all my coworkers. I would not go to HR or anything of that nature because it willend up biting me in the ass. Even if it was possible to be anonymous that would suspect its me because I am the only one with a brain in this company. I know the only real solutiin is to finish school asap so I can get a better paying
