Saddened that another coworker is leaving the org. He was truly my best friend. Ugh, not feeling motivated to work now that I've two close coworkers have moved on.

Our office just got two brand new, expen$ive copiers. We were so excited to learn about all the cool things they do. One month in, I fucking hate them. They don't do what they're supposed to. If I set it to scan docs on both sides, book style, it comes out with every other page upside down (calendar style). I set it to skip any blank pages - nope, the blank pages are in the scan. If I copy or scan a stack of docs, they come shooting out of the feed, scrunching into each other and falling out, so everything's out of order. And the one thing I hate the most: it feeds so fast that the printed or scanned document comes out slightly off-kilter. Crooked documents look SO unprofessional. I want our old copiers back!

In response to a confession. Doesn't every copier have a document feeder though? Seriously! Basic terminology. I know it's a pain to learn a new machine, but we've had the same copier for four years. If I didn't have any compassion, I'd be acting worse than to come to an anonymous website to vent about this.

In response to a confession. I've been working in medical records since 1999. I still have issues with copiers and fax machines. They keep changing the type of machine every so often and you have to learn it over again. Have a little compassion.

In response to a confession. Hang in there. My step-sister is an engineer. She graduated from a top school (undergrad and grad) at the top of her class. She was recruited by several firms and accepted a position at one of the largest firms in the major city she lived in. After hire, they basically told her she was a token and would never get any real assignments other than planning parties. They treated her like shit. But she was being paid a ton of money. so she sucked it up. She saved enough money to start her own firm. It's now 15 years later, and her firm is one of the best and most recognized in the country. She is routinely tapped to speak at engineering conventions. She's been on the cover of countless trade journals. Basically, she's kicking ass. And that firm that originally hired her? They're out of business.

I am fed up to HERE with young cocky men who don't want to respect me or my knowledge. I'm technically their boss, but they are also supervisors and act like they don't have to listen to me. Plus I have to deal with the maintence crew and they are all older men who REALLY don't think they need to listen to me. I knew being an engineer would suck when it comes to this sort of thing, but I wasn't prepared for how shitty it would make me feel.

In response to a confession. You have posted multiple times about this CW, but you keep enabling the situation by helping her or doing for her. She is just playing you. Stop letting her get away with this. If she can't do the job, and you stop doing it for her, maybe they will fire her, or she will get frustrated and leave.

Holy shit. Elderly CW is at the copier and cannot reduce legal to letter size. My God. She's been at this office longer than I have. She's been working in offices longer than I've been alive. And I just had to explain to her what a document feeder is. On a copier. Mother of pearl. *headdesk*

I got named Committee Vice Chair of an important committee. Was reluctant to tell my husband. If I wanted to take yoga that would be fine, but this kind of thing doesn't go over well.
