    BACK Stabbing Coworkers

    I worked at a large hotel chain that fired me for a very stupid reason. Well I did get my unemployment but after it started the ex employer tried to stop my benefits, unemployment disagreed. I am a hard worker and have been all of my life. What I wanted to say is that the GM...

    My Body Image Manifesto

    My body is not the enemy. It has the greatest impact on my happiness and quality of life than anything else. I must love it, imperfections and all. Since we only take care of things we love, it is even more crucial that I quit trying to beat my body into submission. Hating the...

    Working With Idiots

    I actually like most of my coworkers. There are two that are trying to get me fired. Out of 20 or so, I guess that's not bad. Let's assume they are right and I make too much noise. Given the fact that I have taken GREAT PAINS to be as unobtrusive as possible, only doing what I...

    This Is The Way It Is

    It's this insane idea that continues to plague my workplace. The idea that, out of all of us, only -one- person is absolutely correct, and -everyone else- must be wrong and out to get them, is like a billboard on my building's floor. It's this paranoia that drives my boss crazy...

    Learning to Ignore Insults

    I suppose feeling aliented is inevitable when I am a young male working in a building of old women. It used to infuriate me on a daily basis how disrespectful some of my coworkers are to me. I keep to myself and don't bother anyone. Most of them refuse to be polite to me and seem...

    Picking Up People'S Slack.

    Why is it that this generation does not do their job? I clearly do not understand why people call out of work weekly...leaving me with picking up their slack. It is completely uncalled for. I literally work with a bunch of lazy people who just do not care. God Bless America.

    A Coworker Drinking Game

    I'm assuming my office wouldn't be too cheery with the idea of me bringing booze in (maybe when I quit I'll do that on my last day), but I'm working on an office drinking game that is based on the annoying, grating, and occasionally outlandish proclivities of my coworkers. ...
