My last month at the nonprofit is this month. I can't wait to stop being the lead. Some days I don't feel like leading and would just like to not be bothered while I get my work done. I had 4 coworkers ask of something of me yesterday in a span of a few hours from our team of 12. Take a moment to breath and figure it out before bothering someone else. It's really not that hard.

I am considering a career change and going back to college to become a Funeral Director. Anybody here familiar with this field? Insights?

In response to a confession. I agree. I'm lucky enough to have a boss that only cares about job performance, but some co-workers are so annoying. They passed around a sign up sheet once to take a headcount for going out to dinner. They wanted a reason if you weren't going. I wrote, "I don't want to." The silver lining to keeping to myself is that I literally NEVER get involved in office drama. A woman once went to my boss and tried to say that I said something snide to her. My boss was like, "I know you're lying. M doesn't talk to anyone." She then thanked me for my "quiet strength." So, there's that lol.

I'm just going to say it. Working in an office environment where you have to do a lot of interacting with people is just harder when you're a major introvert and even if you're good at your job, you won't get any recognition because you suck at schmoozing and having relationships with people in the office.

It really pisses me off that I have to show you how to send a fucking fax from your computer. Again. And it also pisses me off that next time you have to send a fax I'm going to have to show you again. I'm just so sick of this place, with you in it. It's you, actually. I'm just so sick of you. SO sick of you.

I hate how exhausting my boss is sometimes. She's very sweet but her questions are just...exhausting. Sometimes it's hard to know what she wants to know; other times I just want to teach her how to use our software so she doesn't keep asking us to look stuff up for her.

Favorite new thing to say to clients: "It's just math, we'll figure it out. No worries." I dunno why, but reminding people that all this complicated computer stuff is really just a fancy way of doing math seems to ease people.

I did it! I finally got OSHA to investigate our building! I work in an old factory that was converted into a huge office space for hospital administrative duties. Everything is covered in fine, black dust that looks like fibers. We're constantly wiping our desks down. Everyone in the building has developed breathing problems. After complaining two other times, I finally sent OSHA some really good photos and I received notice that they're going to formally investigate. Maybe I'll actually be able to breathe at my desk without coughing all day.

How many days should you take off after an appendectomy? Is 2 enough? Because I'm sitting here at work in total pain and discomfort with a giant pile of shit to do, feeling like 2 isn't enough.

I am so much more productive since I returned to my work site. Maybe WFH works for some people, but not me!
