Just a rant

Location:
Job: IT

We’re workers, not robots. We do not work 24/7. If your screen is dead at 3am, don’t call us. It is NOT an emergency. It’s a goddamn TV screen not a bypass surgery. We gave you our numbers because we do want to provide good service, but not for being called at 3am because there was a power trip.

We also do not work on weekends, so that thing you want to take down or upload on the weekend, we are unable to do BOTH on weekends. Not just unable to take down, but unable to upload too, because, HELLO? WEEKEND! NO WORK!

Note to colleagues. All of you, my colleagues: I AM BUSY.Continue reading

 

I need to rant

Job:

My company is fucking crazy. They take employees as robots. The first day that I went to work (I was new to town and didn’t have my apartment sorted out yet) I bought a pillow on my way back from lunch, since I literally just happened to walk by a sale, and when I got back I got scolded for “going shopping during work hours”. I thought it was a little ridiculous but I didn’t think too much about it. Little did I know that that was just the beginning. Since then I’ve got at least a dozen lectures for meeting my roommate downstairs for keys, going to the office gym for a 5 minute coding break, wearing shorts (we’re fucking programmers why does it matter), talking to myself while debugging code, wearing headphones, buying juice after lunch, checking Facebook, taking sick leaves, taking bathroom breaks… Yes, apparently taking a fucking bathroom break is a sin here.Continue reading

 

Why question or attack an employee’s face?!

Location: Sacramento, CA
Job: State Government Employee

I am a hard working employee and there has been alot of bullying and mobbing at my workplace. Fellow employees including managers are coming up to employees and verbally attacking them for “your face”, despite the employee not talking to them or thinking about them when they make their horrifically abusive remarks.

You all that attack people faces in public spaces used by employees can stick your face interrogation comments/attacks up your …….!!! In my opinion, if you you don’t like someone’s face or you are a racist, keep your mouth shut! Keep your judgements to yourself and respect other humans, you don’t know what they are going through and it is likely none of your business! What is your intent? Certainly not to help that person. Who do you think you are just because you work at a workplace? I would prefer less of your type on earth. Move to another planet!

 

Just because I can

Hey nasty bitch. Just wanted to let you know that other than being pissed off by your pathetic and catty ways, I could care less about you. BTW, I know you’re jealous B, your best friend told me. It puts a smile on my face. I hope I did ruin your career for bringing light to what we all endure from you, you deserve it! Oh and btw we are all aware of the porno you did with like some 75-year-old man you call daddy…. Guys think you are gross. You can continue to buy your $200 pair of jeans that you can afford because you have no bills because you still live at home and will always live at home. The jeans don’t make guys want you anymore. What are you? 15? You still look like fat trailer trash. Literally look up ugly hairy redheaded women and I bet your pic is the first one up there.

 

What a bitch

Location: UK
Job:

I work with the nastiest vilest passive aggressive bitch I’ve ever encountered. She’s teachers pet so no one can do anything about her as the manager protects her no matter what she does. She is so negative, miserable and sucks the fun out of every work interaction. She complains and bitches about everyone. No one is good enough, everyone else is stupid and thick and only she can be trusted to make decisions or do actual work. Which means we get the crumbs of the stuff she doesn’t want to do and even then you’re not allowed to get on with it as she’s keeping tabs. No autonomy whatsoever.

Our manager is so useless allowing her behaviour and worse, being influenced by it. He then dishes out the kicking on her behalf because he does what ever she says. She talks to people like they are idiots, cuts across and talks over them. No one else can be right as she always is and she’ll keep talking and doesn’t listen.Continue reading
