I recently found out that several of my coworkers have their work email on their phone. We're hourly employees. If I look at my work email, I will get paid for it.

I had a work bully and was told the same thing by the manager, learn to get along. I got along just fine, the bully was causing the issues. We worked together all 5 days, same shift, and it was just the 2 of us. It caused health problems: Migraines, stomach issues, constant bowel movements at work, nerves being shot to the point I couldn't eat, my arms would feel heavy, tingly and numb. The manager kept doing nothing, so I told the owners. The owners needed to "investigate", but I'm the one who had to make changes, I had to switch days, shifts, and only get 4 days a week cuz they couldn't force anyone else to change their schedules. I got 2 full & 2 half shifts vs 5 full, while bully got to keep her 5 full.. So I quit, days before their busiest week of the year where we'd all get overtime...and they had to work even more cuz I quit. I told the owners why I quit. After the busy week, bully and manager were fired.

I was a teacher for many years and left education 2 years ago. I was used to 60 hour weeks and still not getting everything done. Since I went back to the corporate world, I've had two jobs. In both, I feel like I have nothing to do. It's part of the reason I left the last job. I was bored. Now at my latest job, it's the same thing. I mean, I have stuff to do, but I can and do get it all done in like an hour, maybe 2 or 3 on a busy day. My boss is great, and I get nothing but praise and great feedback. I'm told I'm rocking it, and they're really impressed. It's like they think these things take days to do, and I'm just blowing them away by getting it done sooner. I feel like a fraud. I mean, I'm definitely competent, but I'm not THAT good. Is this normal? Are most corporate jobs like this now?

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.
