We have a lot of different websites we have to use at work, and I'm always having problems with them. I'll change the status on a file, and the next day boss sends me an email asking me to change the status. I'm like, I did...and I look and it's not changed. I'll send X file to Y person from a site, and then find out it didn't send. I'll be going through my emails from the bottom up, and suddenly two or three unread emails pop up beneath ones I've already read. Sometimes I'll get an email, switch to another tab to check one of the other sites I need to look up the info, go back to that email and - that email has completely disappeared and the screen is back on my inbox. Then I look in every folder including trash, and I can. not. find. that. email. The worst part about it is that I honestly don't think my boss believes me, because he says he doesn't have any of these issues. :(

So I have a project at work where I have to develop a flavor for a product. I'm so ridiculously excited. I ordered like, 20 sample flavorings and I get to spend next week playing mad scientist and seeing which ones taste best. I have high hopes for a combo of tangerine and grapefruit, but I'm sure I'll get outvoted by the people who really, really want to try the blue raspberry. I feel like blue raspberry's everywhere. I also got a sample of "berry-type" flavor. And I just have to try that to see what exactly it tastes like, haha!

In response to a confession. I think employers need to stay OUT of employees' private business. That includes no employee physicals for most jobs, and if a physical is done, it should be job related. In other words, someone applying to answer phones for a utility company does not need a physical, especially if she is to be weighed and asked when her last period was.

Dear teammates: I took a personal day today, to do...personal shit. All of the things that have to be done during business hours and/or can't be stuffed into weekends or at night after work. It's on the calendar. It was mentioned at our staff meeting on Monday. I sent a reminder text on Tuesday. The emails you are sending me are auto-replied with "Out of the Office." Stop fucking calling and texting me. I'm sure you can handle your shit for ONE DAY!

In response to a confession. Still don't understand why you just don't ignore her, or tell her if she doesn't know her job, that is her problem. Why cause yourself the stress. Stop being a martyr for nothing.

I need some perspective, because I'm seriously aggravated at my boss. For Christmas, everyone chipped to get her a nice gift, like we always do. This year, she gave us all vouchers for an escape room, which we were excited about until we learned that the vouchers can only be used as a group, for a team building exercise. I'm pissed. I'm an hourly employee. If I do anything to benefit the company, including team building to help increase productivity that will help the company make more money, YOU NEED TO PAY ME. So, not only is it a fake "gift," I'm expected to gift the company my Saturday to do team building. I don't think so! It's probably no surprise, but I'm also the op whose boss gives M&Ms instead of bonuses. Am I overreacting?

A partner canceled this morning's meeting I had planned to attend with a colleague I manage. When I told her the news, she became really upset saying that I always do this. It's not true. Her sudden emotional outburst caused me to react telling her it wasn't on my fault, take a breather, etc, in a defensive tone. In that moment, I wish I just held back and listened to her with empathy. Still the outburst had me shaking because I hate confrontation especially when it felt out of the blue. She was gone for hours this morning missing our staff meeting, I texted apologizing asking if she was okay, she said she was picking up her stuff and taking a personal day. I feel really terrible for what happened, but don't feel like I was in the wrong. I just wish I simply listened without responding to her aggressive behavior. She hasn't replied all day.

In response to a confession. This reminded me of something that happened years ago. I had a new friend who was doing makeup at a HUGE 2-day event. I used to do m/u professionally, so she asked if I wanted to join her as her assistant. There was going to be another professional MUA there too. Then my friend had something come up, and asked if I would just take her place. I'd get $50 per face. So we get there, and I'm bangin' faces out since we're on a time crush. I was doing 2-3 faces for every one of the other girl's. Next thing I know, the director of the m/u team pulls me aside, says the other girl feels since I'm not a professional MUA, I shouldn't be making as much money as her. I was ordered not to do any more. Even though we shared a room (btw she was from out of town and I hosted her at my house for two nights), the other girl didn't talk to me the rest of the event, and THEN tried to have the room billed to me! My friend was so embarrassed about the whole thing she ended up ghosting me.

In response to a confession. I'm so glad our CEO gets this...I will get a $10-$15K bonus next year on top of my salary. He believes that it's the people that make the company a success and gives out amazing bonuses. I feel truly blessed considering that my last job gave out cupcakes (that I was allergic to) as employee appreciation gifts.

In response to a confession. I am the lazy idiot poster. The weird part is, the boss really appreciated knowing he could count on me at first. Then he turned on me.I dont understand why a boss would turn on someone who made his job easier. Anyway,I got a text today from one of my former coworker- a decent worker but he does have a bit of an attitude and little patience. He said he missed working with me. Anyway, at my next job, I will still be a good worker, but, like you said not work myself or anyone else out of a job.
