Some of us come in when we're feeling sick because we don't have the luxury of FMLA that a few privliged ones do. Our absences count against us.

In response to a confession. For similar jobs in my state with the cost of living being about the same, I make $20K a year less than what most companies pay. However, most companies would want me to have a PhD for my job where my company doesn't require it, so maybe that's where the decreased pay comes in. I do have a bachelor's and a specialized master's but no PhD...I still think I'm a bit of a slacker because I only put in about 45 hours a week and not 60 like some people put in. I think the people who work a lot of OT are hourly though and get paid for it. And our CEO wonders why we have high turnover at this place....

I wonder constantly if I'm working hard enough at my job. I get all my stuff done, but I don't have time to work on many of my long-term projects. Also, a lot of stuff gets delayed due to things I can't control, so I can't work on things I want to work on. I dunno. I just feel like I should be working harder. Although...I feel less bad about my pace now that I discovered I'm underpaid by about $20K a year and I'm salaried, so I don't have any motivation to work overtime.

In response to a confession. I enjoy these posts, lol. I would love to spend just one day in your office to witness these shenanigans!

The one time of year when you can be of use to me... and you can't show up. Fuck you.

You haven't even been here five minutes and I'm already on chitchat venting about your dumb ass. What the FUCK? You roll in here at 1030 when we open at 9, I give you all the fucking information about all the phone calls I had to deal with because YOUR ass can't be bothered to show up, and when the phone DOES ring, you can't answer a simple fucking question of 'did we get this document?'... YES, you dumb motherfucker. It's in your fucking inbox that you don't bother to look in. I'm so sick of you. You should have retired 15 years ago. If I have to show you how to open a fucking excel file ONE MORE TIME... I might shoot you in the face with a bazooka.

My work stress is through the roof. Just completely overworked. Two weeks overdue on a report for a program that's struggling. Got the promotion with no raise. After 9 days no sugar, then binged on chocolate chip cookies from stressful day. After work, took a 4.5 hr nap, then was awake for another 4 hrs.

I started a new, part time job on Dec 2. Flexible, make my own schedule, pick and choose the jobs I want. My boss portrayed herself as a strict and efficient businesswoman. She's anything but. She tells me to do something, I do it, but then she comes back with, "Oh, it's different with this client, you can't do that with them." I tell her my start time is 9am, she assigns me an 8am, 40 minutes away. I was told there was more than enough work for me to get the hours I needed (20), but one week I had only 5 hours, and one week I had zero. My last check was short; my current check that was supposed to have arrived on Monday hasn't even been sent out yet! Sorry lady, I can't survive on one small check a month. I just had to put two big bills on my credit card :(

Well. I haven't burned the place down without my coworker helping me this last week. I have a feeling he didn't actually do much anyway?? The main things I've had to do now are just reviewing things and taking care of change controls. All of which take me an extra 6 hours a week. I know he spent like, most of his time chatting with people. I tend to just, well, work when I'm at work.

I would go bonkers if I didn't have my amazing coworker on our team. She is really supporting me through all these insane work challenges. Also, grateful for our office manager who brings such calm to my day.
