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.

Welp, I unexpectedly cried at team meeting today. Stressors are piling up, everything is getting to me, going through a Depression relapse and still have to perform in front of students tomorrow.

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, you really do need to set these boundaries. How do you do it?

Lazy CW wanted to leave early yesterday. She asked if I was leaving early and I said "I might take off a few minutes early at like 4:15 or so if it's dead" and she said she was thinking more like leaving at 3. I said "If you want to leave, that's fine". She begged me to leave with her. So I walked with her out to my car (I had stuff to take home anyway so I took all that stuff out to the car) and pretended to leave, but I just drove around the block and came back to work and stayed until 4:15. And I still felt guilty for leaving a bit early. She does it every goddamn Friday and I'm really tempted to mention it to our boss.

Dear Everyone I Work With, reply to your %$#@! IMs. I'm not sending them for my health, it's because something is urgent. I get that we are all working remotely right now, but that means that you are still supposed to be actually working.

I don't think I'm cut out for the working world. I'm way too sensitive to stuff when it comes to office politics. I hate drama and I just want a job where I can show up, work, and get paid for doing it. I have a more involved job right now where I am expected to be involved heavily with the company workings and I seriously wish all I had to do was just do my job. I am a total introvert and I know this makes it hard for me to interact with people the way I should at work. I fake it every day but it's exhausting.

Dear coworker: Perhaps the reason you have so many digestive issues (that are super obvious because of the proximity of my desk to the bathroom- yay) is because you eat so much junk and grease all the time. Your diet is abysmal (this is super obvious from the countless snack that you eat, and the lunches that you bring here, not to mention your lamenting about all the vegetables that you refuse to eat) and if you ate better, you'd feel better. And I would maybe get a break from your uber-frequent trips the to bathroom that are just.... gross. My desk the closest one to the john. And the walls are paper thin. And it's gross.
