I'm in the process of validating Excel sheets for a project at work. I find it strangely hypnotic. It appeals to my OCD and I could easily do it for hours straight. I kind of like Excel anyway--I love to think of cool logic and conditional formatting to make the sheets super easy to use and fairly idiot proof.

I just saw a post on PostSecret. It said, "I'm bullied more at my job than I *ever* was in high school." What the hell is wrong with people? Why can't we all be adults and get along? I'll never understand it. I treat people the way I want to be treated and I can't believe how some people can be mean to others.

Just got approved for my unemployment since my former boss didn't have anything to validate his claim of misconduct. I wasn't worried about it, I was just super pissed off that he did that.

In response to a confession. I used to work for a very well-known, global company. We had a very strict call-out policy. Three "sick" incidents in a year would get you a write up and on probation. Any calls outs during probation would result in termination. That being said, I had a coworker who was approved to take FMLA for her chronic sinus infections due to the nature of our job. She didn't abuse it, but she did end up getting fired when she went on a short trip to a third-world country with friends on her days off, and got sick and couldn't fly home in time for work. The company accused her of lying so she could stay - alone - in this country a few more days.

OP fired for "misconduct." I had no written or even verbal warnings. The only thing ever said was about a year ago when my boss told me to "work it out" with her. I'm wondering if he's just had too many employees leave and file for unemployment (which reflects poorly on him) so he's using that as an excuse. He's probably kicking himself for letting me go and not waiting for me to say I was leaving, like I had said I was going to do if it happened again. In any case, it was a wrong move for him. Schizz is about to hit the fan.

After more than a year of being verbally abused by a coworker - with the full knowledge of the boss, who has witnessed it with me and her other targets - I was let go after she unleashed on me again. That's right, *I* was let go. But I was fine with it, because she actually led me to a breakdown a couple months ago, and I'd told the boss the next time was the last time. I went to file my unemployment and saw that my boss wrote that he fired me for misconduct. I. am. seething. He allows this behavior in the workplace and just replaces my position when people quit or are let go because they can't take it anymore.

Just spent a few hours making a budget tracker on Excel. I never really used the formula function before, but it was actually really fun and seeing the end product was quite satisfying. Now I feel like budgeting my personal finances.

Positive vibes, please! I'm applying to my dream job (which I did before kids). The application process is much harder than it was back in the day and I'm sweating. I really want and need this! Thank you <3

If you could start a side hustle, what would it be? I'm thinking of starting one around health & wellness.

OF COURSE I had to go and develop a crush on a teammate. And he’s either very friendly or interested in me too. I’ve dated a coworker in the past and seriously regretted it when I wanted to break up (I hung in another 3 months until I got a new job) do I really want to risk that again?? I already know the policy at work... we could date if we wanted too...
