Pt. 1- I have been away from my worksite for a month advocating to make our system better for my colleagues and the people we serve. The day I come back I find out that two people I work with sent a complaint about me being away. Before I left one of them asked me "Why are they making you do this?" and I responded, "Would you like me to help you understand why people in our profession ask me to do this for us?" I'm so hurt and angry about this.

I've been at my job for about a year and a half and have yet to go to any work parties. I spend 40 hours a week with these people. They're nice enough, but I want to be home with my family during my off hours. I'm very upfront about this and it FREAKS people out. Several of my coworkers agree with me, but they're afraid of not going, for some reason. Like they think they'll get in trouble for not socializing. We're all hourly employees, who have no chance of advancing with the company. Stay home if you want to stay home! Sheesh.

In response to a confession. I'm happily married and I check out men all the time. I mean, I don't talk about it at work, but my gf and I talk about hot men and whatever smutty book we happen to be reading, at the moment. My marriage rocks and I think my husband hung the moon, but I'm not dead. I can see how that would be off-putting in a work environment, though.

In response to a confession. True...but where it gets uncomfortable is that we have two holiday parties coming up. Since we're in the same small department, we'll be seated at the same table with her and her DH. It's hard sitting across from this guy when all year long we hear her talking about how she would love to get this guy or that one alone. I guess it's joking/fanatsizing, but I for one would never disrespect my DH/marriage by constantly talking about other men. Plus she makes it known that there is a certain type of guy she's attracted to, and her DH is the complete opposite. And they've only been married for like 5 years. I sometimes wonder why she married him.

I am the lazy idiot poster. I stopped posting because it was the same stuff over and over..lazy idiots arguing, standing around texting, etc. Boss yelling at when stuff did not get done. I was just his secretary, not a supervisor. I tried talking to him about things and he just brushed me off.I went over his head, I worked in another department for 2 weeks and they let me go this morning.

In response to a confession. I don't think there's anything wrong with her behavior, as long as she's not acting on it.. Nothing wrong with a little fantasizing!

My coworker is married with young children. She's very bubbly, always laughing and joking around and is really fun. She always talks about her DH and kids. But something weird - I've never seen a happily married woman talk about other men as much as she does. Coworkers, vendors we work with, clients...always commenting on how hot they are, and how we need more hot guys in our office. Last week we were all talking about current books we're reading, and she said she only reads smutty books about cheating wives and husbands, She's not dumb - she has multiple degrees. I just find this odd and kind of off-putting.

I was leaving a meeting and chatting with my coworker and think I saw a former client from my old job years and years ago. We both made eye contact, but I didn't acknowledge her. She might have recognized me since I managed the program she was in. I feel really bad now.

Pet peeve - people who need to talk to me RIGHT AWAY, so they IM, text, email, and call (yes, all 4) over and over, as fast as possible. I get back to my desk after an hour long meeting and have 20 voicemails (and IMs, and texts, and emails)! Do people not understand what leaving a message is - that I will get back to you AS SOON AS I AM AVAILABLE! JFC, I am just a data person - I'm not saving lives, or catching bad guys, or anything. I run data, and people use it for analysis. Waiting a few hours makes no difference at all.
