Someone I work with just continually makes bad life choices. There are a million stories I could tell but none of that would be so bad if she would just STOP. TALKING. ABOUT IT. If I have to hear one more story about the totally charming guy that she met of Plenty of Fish (where decency goes to die) that ok doesn’t have a job or drive or have his own place and is probably married with 13 illegitimate children but he’s totally amazing because he paid for the nachos we shared at the pool hall, my ears will start bleeding and my eyeballs will roll so far back into my head that they will never come back out.

TGIF. Seriously.

I don’t necessarily want to hit anyone but I don’t want a lot of them to communicate with me at all in any capacity, although that’s impossible.

@Bazinga:  hahaha #3 is soooo the org I work for, 1000000458498 meetings but nothing gets done to the point where the executive director is creating incentives just so that work can be done on time. #4 is how I feel about my program director sometimes, she has tons of more work experience in general but when it comes to directing programs she’s all over the place.

I’ve had a lot of those co-workers in the past, but I have to say that I’m finally in a place where I work where I love my job, and I get along with everyone. It’s easy to work with these people, and I don’t have a single person (out of the 100 that work here!) that I don’t like or get along with.

OMG, YES!!  I’ve come home and quoted the scene from Pulp Fiction.  The one from breakfast, with Honey Bunny (I forget her name) “Any of you f&[email protected] pricks move, and I’ll execute every motherf$&#ing last one of you!’

That’s the moment where my fiance knows EXACTLY what kind of day it was. His response – ‘Which idiot screwed up today?’

EVERY SINGLE DAY!

 

Except, now that she has had a child my coworker only has to work 2 days a week. So most of the time I’m here doing the work of 2, and she comes in and acts like I should feel sorry for her. I don’t. At all. 

LOTS of moms work, I don’t feel sory that you have to work a whooping 2 days a week, and not even for a full day!

Oh my god! I just want to punch all of my coworkers in the face today! Knowing that I’m going to be working late on a Friday after, I’ve already put in 55 hours this week has me very cranky! If these asshats spent as much time working as they do having meetings, then maybe things would get done!

The other day a co-worker was clipping his nails at his desk (next to mine). So yes, yes I have.

I have one coworker who constantly gets on my nerves. He wears so much cologne I can track him just by smell alone.  He had a live in girlfriend for two years, and when she broke up with him, he announced he “got a divorce.”  Earlier this week, he came in with a disgusting runny nose/cough spewing everywhere, and got a bunch of us sick, including me.  I avoid him at all cost.

@Katie918:  Actually by the end of the day I was sick with worry that she’d report me to HR or something, but she never did. Thank god for small blessings, as she’d say.
