Boss on Another Planet & Team Not Much Better

Location: Virginia
Job: Office Assistant

I’m so happy to have found a website where people can anonymously talk about workplace FRUSTRATION. I hardly even know where to begin. I never loved my job to begin with, but it paid the bills and was doable. I’ve been there for several years, but things really hit the fan when we were assigned a new boss recently. This guy has zero people skills, and, I’m not saying this to offend anyone that may have a learning disability (especially because some of my relatives do), but I really think that despite his ivy league degrees and nifty sounding job history, he has something along the lines of Asperger’s Syndrome. It’s fine to even have a boss with that as long as they are being medicated, but whatever this dude has, nothing is remedying it.Continue reading

 

Get Your Shit Together

Location: IL
Job: Consultant

So about a month ago I took on a second job as an independent consultant for a tech firm. What should have been a relatively easy smooth going assignment was nothing but pure chicanery and incompetence. Ugh where do I start… Well let’s see first there was the training process which I really didn’t mind as each firm does things differently, however the process took about three weeks for which there was no compensation. Then came the non-negotiable contract which I didn’t mind and went ahead and signed as the salary was nice and the production totals reasonable. The real problems started during production. We had to use an annotation tool provided by the company, however the tool was wrought with bugs and errors from the start. The tool doesn’t work so that means you can’t make production and if you don’t make full production then you don’t get the wage for that day…Continue reading

 

Lube?

Location: Oregon
Job: Retail

To all of the idiot douchebags at work who call in sick way too often and are not being held accountable, not to mention the dipshits that manipulate the boss any way they can…FUCK YOU! Stop making the rest of our lives miserable. I don’t enjoy being called in on my scheduled day off just to cover your ass because you don’t feel like working for whatever whiny ass reason. I don’t give a shit about your fragile feelings. I don’t give a shit about your sore back. I’m a VET with multiple mental and physical problems yet I come to work, do my job with a smile most of the time, and step up to new challenges often. You lazy ass fucktards need to either shape up and fly right or get the fuck outta dodge cause some scary shit is headed your way!

 

No Space

Job:

So today was a personal disaster where FedEx and Dyson royally messed up and potentially could have lost a very costly item. They have been messed up for months, making everything harder. The only times that any of these people are open is during my work hours. They completely waste my time and make me furious – I’m down playing this to an extreme. I’m in a terrible mood and it’s obvious that I’m not ok. Does my boss back off and come to me the next day? Fuck no. She fucking descends on me the moment I get to my desk. Yeah, we can adjust my time for the time I was dealing with personal issues, no problem, but did you have to come at me the first fucking moment you could?

She does this shit all the fucking time. And then she follows it up with whatever she thinks I’m “slacking” on because her “instincts” tell her I am. Fuck you. Seriously, fuck you. I’m the first one in, last one out, and I have the most difficult assignments out of the entire team, but I never complain and my work is pristine. You have a personal issue and it’s like a god damn candle light vigil at your desk. I seem anything less than fucking cheerful and you descend like a fucking vulture. You can take your micromanaging and your “instincts” and shove them. Get away from me. If you crowd me anymore, I’m going to be fired because I’m going to punch you in the face.

 

Of You

Job:

I understand how you would have so much time sending long emails and making long phone calls to a supplier who will terminate you as you are a director, therefore your performance is not assessed by productivity at work and there is no need to justify how you’ve been harassing the staffs. I would love to ask you to go for therapy but we are not really allowed to be unprofessional and it’s likely to be of no use because if 30 or 40 years of living has not been able to teach you basic manners and decency, just look at the mirror and it would be what you see. Unpleasant to the core. I really don’t know what your parents were thinking in raising someone like you.

 

What the What

Job:

I don’t know what the hell just happened. I just got back from a mini holiday. It’s Tuesday. I checked my email, nothing crazy. Tell me why there’s a walk through of our managing attorneys and there was ZERO notice? I am completely freaking out. We are a huge national company and these three divided up and handle the entire United States. They don’t live here. You would think that these people flying out here would warrant an email. None of us look homely today, per say, but I just saw one of us in what looks like a sweat suit. We can get away with a more laid back dress attire because no one important to the company actually sees us. Then my boss brings the Big 3 to my GD desk to introduce me and all that I do. I almost had a stroke. Do I look like a hobo? Is my desk straight? I had no damn clue in that moment. Then, one of these corporate gods got close. I got up to shake her hand and we ended up hugging. It wasn’t awkward, I think. We are cc’d on all the same emails and I’m forever looped in with all of her projects in the states that I handle. It seemed fluid and totally natural – she even smelled nice – but I still wanna vom. What if it was super terrible? What if my boss, who was standing there, thought it was upper inappropriate? I had one GD earbud in my ear and my phone was on the desk because I just took it out of my pocket to change the song. Dear sweet lord. Thank god I didn’t accidentally skip my perfume.

 

Office Drone

Location: Hell
Job: Worker Bee

Worthless meetings wasting everyone’s time, everything you spew can be e-mailed. But with your power trip you would rather inconvenience everyone. “We hired so many more people…” Really? Then why are you calling me begging me to cover a shift after 2 doubles in a row? Because you’re a liar. You and your idiot towel boy think you can treat people any kind of way and not worry about it. See how it works? Now you want to toss your burdens to your lower management and forget about them. Causing people that got along fine to despise each other. A company worth hundreds of millions and you’re cutting back on benefits, hours and pay? Then you expect us to go above and beyond?! Yeah… Good luck without us loyal drones you took advantage of. Have fun with the people that complain about the keurig location, let alone a last minute shift.

 

The last

Location: daegu sk
Job: I work at a ramen stand

I mean everyone calls me the charmer of this stupid ramen stand but all I want to do is punch everyone in the face. What is this salary?? Like 3000 won a day. Nothing at all. I’d make more money as a hairstylist. That reminds me to apply for beauty school. Annoying.

 

Contract after contract

Location: Toronto
Job:

Big companies making so much and being so cheap on employees. Making employees work harder than ever, paying them less and less, no benefits, no sick days, no vacations, renewing contract after contract. Sucks.

 

Do you want me to quit?

Location: Virginia
Job:

I can honestly say I think my boss is a nut job. She constantly comes to me and tells me how I’m the hardest and smartest working employee she has. Always tells me that she can only trust me with certain projects. Then she proceeds to micromanage and gaslight me wherever she can. She would tell me to my face what she wanted me to do and that I was doing a good job and then freak out on me a week later for doing exactly what I did the week before. She’s calmed down with this and now somewhat believes me when I tell her, “nope, this is what you told me to do. I have the email/note right here.”

The thing that gets under my skin is the petty small bullshit. I kept seeing all these other people on my team wear a particular kind of outfit. It seemed very comfortable, fashionable, and I happened to have higher quality items that would constitute that look. I come in and she sends me home within the hour. Everyone on her team wears what I wear but less, but I’m the one that’s singled out. No one else seemed to notice anything wrong with my clothes, and I got compliments the moment I walked through the door, but then there she is. That’s fucking annoying, then she clocked me out while I went home, pretty much making sure I couldn’t properly have lunch that day.Continue reading
