I don’t know what to do

Location: United States
Job: Science lab

My boss recently got offered a job at a better university, and wants to move the whole lab there. But I don’t really want to move. I am not looking forward to feeling the isolation I know I would feel when completely uprooting. People like to say that ‘I’ll make new friends and branch out’, but I’m very uncomfortable with new people, so I don’t really see that happening. The fact that I have any friends is somewhat of a miracle, but that’s besides the point.

It’s not just the lack of friends I would have there. I just moved closer to this job so that I can work more efficiently. And as everyone knows, moving is a pain in the ass. So to have to move again in so short a time, I feel, is somewhat unfair. I know the neighborhoods around where I live and know where to get a cheaper place to live. However, at the new location, everything is so expensive, I almost can’t afford to live, even if I share with roommates.Continue reading

 

Detached from reality boss

Location: Australia
Job:

I’m approaching 60 and have NEVER in my working career had to put up with the idiotic BS of my current boss.
I’ve had bad bosses, good bosses and now this total TWAT.
This place is a cross between Sheldon Cooper world/Brittas Empire and Fawlty Towers.
He bought the business I was in, but it would have been better if he never had.
Me – qualified electronics tech, software engineer, field service for global players like 3M for 20 years plus, inventor, entrepreneur, part-time genius.
Current dickhead “manager/owner” – best off in back room production, as far away from people as possible. Good at production, hopeless in the real world.
No people skills, talks down to everyone – staff, customers, family, BUT thinks he isn’t!
Prattles on about high standards and low standards, then LIES to his own wife on the phone (more than once) how the “shop is full and can’t talk now” when the shop is devoid of customers.
High standards there Bud…Continue reading

 

10 idiots, 1 day

Location: United States
Job: Tech Support

Things I want to say:

1) Don’t do exactly what I said not to do.
2) A warranty doesn’t cover stupidity.
3) Getting a new machine won’t fix a software problem.
4) No, you are not hacked.
5) Don’t forget the password you just set 5 minutes ago!Continue reading

 

Online PA. Crazy lady has me working like crazy (and refuses to pay me)

Location: USA
Job: Online Personal Assistant

Ugh, so this lady employed my services to be her online personal assistant. We agreed she’d pay me 7 USD/hour (like that’s a lot *insert eye roll*) for no more than 10 hours a week. She gave me a task and didn’t specify how much time she wanted me to work on said task. She sends me incomplete information. Once I finish my task (scheduling 49 fucking posts for her Insta) she wants me to make changes because she forgot to mention she wanted me to add a description to the pictures she sent me. I write 2 stupid WordPress articles for her because her stupid blog was incomplete.Continue reading

 

Stop complaining!

Location: USA
Job: Push carts

All my coworkers and I do is bust our ass and the higher-ups fucking complain about how the lot looks. THEY HAVE THE BALLS TO COMPLAIN! When they aren’t scheduling enough people and it’s hot as hell outside on top of it! They are in the goddamn AC for 8 hours while I’m in the blistering heat. HAVE SOME GODDAMN EMPATHY. I need to get a new job quicker than I thought. People are just plain rude.

 

Learn basic math!!

Location: USA
Job:

How are you in your 30s and you can’t understand the concept of percentages or even simple addition!?!? I’m embarrassed FOR you. You need a bumper sticker that says “I’m proud of my 3rd grader! He helps me with math!” Idiot. And of course the dopey ASSistant manager thinks that’s acceptable. Meanwhile I smoke your ass. Get over yourself. Looking at you and listening to you makes me regret eating before work.

 

Stop playing favorites (Oh yeah, and drop dead!)

Location: USA
Job: Bartending

It was SO professional of you to have your underlings fire me and conveniently be gone that day (doesn’t surprise me since it’s common knowledge you have no spine).

I felt SO valued to be questioned daily on stupid meaningless monkey tasks, then given the eye roll when I was truthful and completed said tasks.

I SO enjoyed getting the blame for other employees laziness and never completing their tasks (I’m not a teenager and only an asshole would relate to their staff like they do to their spoiled ugly entitled bratty offspring).Continue reading

 

Omg

Location: Little Italy
Job: Marketing

OMG this basic white bitch just spilt her pumpkin spice latte all over my Louboutins… shits about to get real up in here.

 

What’s wrong with how I dress?

Location: USA
Job:

I don’t get my job. Like I don’t know why my manager has it in for me. She is such a bitch. Go back to the ’70s with your glitter rompers. Better yet send me back to the ’70s to Studio 54 so I can get as much blow as I want. Anyways….. so I got in trouble today because I was wearing leggings and a t-shirt to work. We work in a call center and nobody in the public sees us, so what’s wrong with wanting to be stylish? Apparently there have been complaints that the leggings were thin and you could see through the butt of them. I didn’t know that, but if you are offended just don’t look. Or look and don’t complain because I have a great ass and they’re just jealous. God I hate this job. I hate people who think the world revolves around them. Fuck em all!

Why does anyone say “real quick” at work? Especially when they know it will be anything but really quick. Most annoying phrase ever!!
