“Taking one for the team” again & again

Location: US

I don’t have to be talked down to by some sub-human entitled customer because our company does not communicate internally. I’m taking too many hits around here and I’m about to lose it. Why I stuck around when a competitor offered more money is totally beyond me. I thought loyalty meant something. Worst company EVER.


Lying manipulator

Location: Scotland
Job: Support work

Hahaha fucking ha. What a piece of transparent psycho shit. Colleague at work has been taking the piss since starting. Fake qualifications that were written ‘by mistake’. Four weeks sick a year. Is being pulled up for terrible performance in every way. Seeks sympathy from everyone else by bleating on about it. Tries to rope in the whole team by reporting sickness in a round-robin email designed to garner sympathy, with a fake apology for ‘being sick a lot intermittently’. Thing is, everyone is sick of the lies and sees right through them. No one cares, shut up. Fuck off and ruin a different organisation.


Suddenly they are interested in working!

Location: United Kingdom
Job: Charity

Lazy liar at work has spent the last 18 months avoiding work and lying about illness, stats, qualifications, timekeeping and casework. They have taken more leave than they are entitled to ‘by accident’. They arrive late and leave early, and would never volunteer to help anyone for any reason. BUT surprise surprise – a planning day held on a day they don’t normally work is scheduled. When we first talk about it, they ignore it completely. I think nothing of it. They find out someone influential is going to facilitate – someone they’ve worked hard to kiss ass with and SUDDENLY they are desperate to come!


Trained monkey can do it better

Location: United States
Job: Server

Never in my life have I seen such stupidity when it comes to management. They say, “If you have a problem, then come to one of us and we will take care of the situation.” What a fucking joke. The moment you do have something that needs to be addressed it’s, “I don’t know why you are coming to me with this negativity.” I don’t know, maybe because you are supposed to be the fucking manager, and if it is a problem, then it’s not exactly going to be a positive thing when I come to you now is it, you fucking idiot? I seriously wonder whose dick did you suck to get the position anyway?


Fuck work!

Location: United States
Job: Movie Theater Concessionist

Oh my fucking God. I have work soon and I am honestly dreading it. I work at a movie theater which isn’t so bad in itself but I am just tired. Sick of it, really. Tired of the stupid upselling policy in which we have to ask guests if they want to make their medium drink a large for fifty cents more. It just contributes to the diabetes and obesity epidemics in America. The food is overpriced crap. My co-workers are fairly nice but I’m not too attached to any of them. I get annoyed by the lazy ass ones who don’t do their goddamn job – they literally just hide in a theater on their phone or watch movies. Why go to work if you’re not gonna do your freaking job?Continue reading


More incredible excuses

Location: United Kingdom
Job: Charity

Wow! This one is very inventive! Caught out for ‘mistakenly’ not working their hours and unable to wriggle out of it this time. They try desperately to avoid having pay docked or to make up the time by trying to say they did extra work at home a few weeks ago so don’t need to do anything! This is a person who can’t manage to build up to a full working caseload in 18 months, and NEVER does anything like a full day’s work or finishes a task. There is no way they can possibly suggest they have been so busy they need to take work home.

The same person blames everyone else for their poor performance and complains about the team making them look bad for not performing as poorly as they do. They try to avoid supporting clients by saying they don’t have enough time to do the work, then cry when someone else picks it up to avoid clients being left in the lurch. They do half the work of anyone else, but still don’t find the time to clean up after themselves at the end of the day, leaving cups and plates for the rest of us to clean up. They have to leave 15 minutes early to go to the toilet…..that’s a new one. Watch this space…..they may be developing a new mystery illness…..


I seriously cannot stand you. Je hais toi!

Location: UK

Je la hais!

I don’t think you know how lucky you have been with all the shit that’s happened and yet you somehow manage to survive. How?

Don’t speak to me anymore. Stop banging on the tables whenever something goes wrong and stop behaving like a child. I think one day (and its going to be soon) I am either going to punch you, laugh in your face or simply tell you to f*ck off.

Oh by the way, it’s not just me who thinks this. Everyone in the section does and probably posted on here.


It’s a trap!

Location: United States
Job: Target (Food Avenue)

If I could have one do-over, I would not have applied for Food Avenue at my local Target. For one, it’s a thankless job. Everyone looks down on you – all your superiors, your coworkers, and the “guests”. I hate working there, it has gotten in my way of enjoying life. I am sick and tired of having to serve assholes subpar food that they’re just going to bitch about. Seriously… why do people go there if they just have negative things to say about the food? Also, we are short-staffed, thus making it damn near impossible for me to switch departments. I work in the most neglected area of Target! And my supervisors could care less. I always have to make up some lame excuse when my co-workers ask me if I can come in and cover for them, because though I know they are also suffering, I barely have the willpower to work my own scheduled shifts. Working in retail of any kind is miserable for me!!


I need advice. I don’t know how to handle this situation!

Location: USA
Job: Client Manager

I need advice. Sorry for the long post, I would really appreciate it if you read it. I don’t know how to get out of this situation? I’m writing this post because basically I’m lost. I don’t know what to do? I invited my boss’s sister to join my all-female group with a specific focus. My boss is always complaining that her sister is socially awkward and lost in life so I decided to invite her to join my group. I’ve worked there for the past two years but my boss doesn’t like me. She seems very uninterested and unimpressed with me. I should also admit I’m scared of her. She basically ignores me in the office and our offices face each other.Continue reading


Lazy lying person

Location: UK
Job: Charity

Having to manage a lazy psycho liar who loves to play the victim:

1. I can’t work these hours (stupidly I agree to change their hours even though it messes up the whole working schedule)
2. I can’t get to work on time (I allow flexible start time – but that will necessarily change the finish time)
3. I don’t know how the signing in and out sheet works (when challenged for seemingly disappearing at the end of the day at an unspecified time)
4. I made a mistake (after submitting inflated figures on work)
5. I got confused (after inflating qualifications on CV)Continue reading
