What the hell do I do?
I work at a University in the Student Services division. I *love* my job. It’s the first job I’ve had that I don’t dread going to every morning! However, my boss is the worst when it comes to gossiping/chatting/talking about everything non-work releated.
For example, yesterday I was working at my desk getting acceptance letters ready to be mailed. My boss (we share an office) was talking about vacation destinations with another co-worker. Her phone rang, and she said “Bakerbee, can you get that?” WHAT?! I’m actually working and you’re sitting there chit-chatting away.
The same thing just happened again today. Like 5 minutes ago. I can’t even stand listening to her drama-but to stop my work so I can answer her phone and handle whoever is on the other end so she can continue to chat?
Sorry. Rant over.

Don’t you love this? At my old job (which I hated), the three ladies I worked with did nothing but fuck around all day–play games, scroll through Facebook, etc. AND THEN they’d complain that they didn’t get anything done that day and have to stay late–which meant that I had to stay late, too. This was bs, since I actually got my work done by 5, and then I’d try to leave and they’d tell me no. Ridiculous.

@vorpalette: My boss does the same thing then complains that she didn’t get anything done. She also will leave for lunch (we’re only allowed 30 minutes per 8 hours) and she will be gone for an hour and a half…then come back and clock out for 30 minutes. If I did that, I’d be fired.
OH! And the past 3 mornings I’ve gotten here the office door has been shut and locked. She has the only set of keys, so I have to sit out in the hallway and wait for her to come back from “running errands (aka gossiping)” so I can get in. I’ve clocked in late all week because of her. Now I have to talk to the HR guy to get him to manually fix my time sheets.
