The battle with the department bully is futile. She continues to get away with unacceptable behavior and our manager is obviously afraid of her too and so she has become the teachers pet. I went to him once for her bullying and he told me I'd better learn to get along with her or he'd transfer me. Over the last 10 years I've seen many people come and then go because of the bully, and the higher ups including corporate don't do a thing.This is where I want to work. It's close to home and I'm planning to retire soon, so I'm not going to allow her to bully me out also. But I'm afraid it might eventually make me sick. I might need to talk to a therapist for how to handle the anger I have inside all because of her (aka Satan).

It really pisses me off when my clients don't pay their employees overtime. This one in particular. I've been telling her for so long that she's paying her tipped employees less than the minimum wage, and not bothering to pay ANYONE overtime. It just pisses me off. She won't listen. And now, one of her employees is stealing from her. That she knows of. I expect there's more, just by looking at the books. Hmmm, I wonder why her employees aren't loyal to her? And of course, she's crying to me about it. Well, honey, you've been stealing from your employees (not paying overtime, not paying minimum wage) since they started working for you, so.... yeah. Not feeling bad for you. At all. Trying to figure out how much she stole from them, and how much they stole from her... it's gonna be a math nightmare. And I'm gonna bill her for every single second that I work on it. Because this shitstorm IS going to court.

There are like 8 people out with COVID right now at our factory. They refuse to shut down because they don't want to lose out on any money (we manufacture nonessential consumer goods). I seriously hate our CEO for being such a dick. Also he is a Trump supporter and thinks COVID is no big deal now. I just want to pull out my hair and scream.

For real? It's bad enough that when you come here to work... you don't know what the fuck you're doing and can't do anything other than make a letter-sized copy. BUT! Lo and behold, you're here on your day off! (Another common occurrence that I hate) Why are you here? Well, to use the scanner! (Something you have no fucking clue how to do! Yay!) So I have to explain to you how to use it, then when you fuck it up I have to come DO IT FOR YOU! And this is not work related. Not at all. But my boss wants me to be nice to you because you're old and he won't fire you because he figures you're going to eventually retire. But I'm not convinced. I think I'll be calling 911 when I find you dead on the toilet here at work. Fucking annoying. I have actual work to do.

Housecleaner here. Boss always knew this was temp for me until I got a job in my industry. I did, the week before quarantine, so it's on hold indefinitely. I recently posted my resume online, tailored to my industry, but was contacted by employers for other work I've done. I ignored them. A headhunter called me last week with a GREAT job. Interviewed yesterday and got it, so I put in my 2 weeks' notice. My boss is pissed. She'd said before that she'd let ME tell my clients when I was leaving, now she won't let me. I think that's unfair to the people I've built a rapport with. She also never gave me my six-month bonus and is now refusing to, saying it's only for "long-term employees." That's NOT what she said when she hired me. And PPP? I lost 70+ hours and she only paid me for 8. Yet she still wants me to work for her on weekends. I'm so angry!

It's really frustrating working with community partners. They will happily partner with us when we lead workshops for the members, ask for incentives, and we share our partner contacts for them to receive even more freebies, but when we ask for their help with outreach and promotion they are not willing to help us. Wtf, I'm so tired of working these one-sided partnerships.

In response to a confession. YES! Thank God, somebody other than me is dealing with a coworker who should KNOW better! So sick of it. It's never-ending.

In response to a confession. Yes, you really do need to set these boundaries. How do you do it?

In response to a confession. Funny--I was trying to check my work email on my phone and it usually works. This time, I got some weird error message and I thought for sure that meant I got fired and they took away my email access without telling me. I've been stressing about it since I found out it happened. I'm pretty sure it's fine, but it's a good reminder that you need to set boundaries between work and home.

I tend to rush through stuff at work because I always, always feel like I'm being pressured to hurry up and get stuff done. I make mistakes I shouldn't make and the only advice anyone ever has for me is "slow down and be more careful". But I guess I don't know HOW to be more careful? I am terrified that if I don't get my ducks in a row and start making fewer errors that I'll get fired.
