Mr. Nurse on Line #1


I work as a nurse for a pretty large hospital system.  Within the last year, I bid on and was accepted for a position in the Emergency Department.  My boss, the head nurse, is a real piece of work.  Or maybe instead of saying he’s a piece of work, I should say that he’s a […]

Reply To All


I work for a pretty big company.  I won’t share the name, but definitely a brand you’d recognize. While most people complain about the lack of communication at their jobs, my company actually over-does it.  There are memos and notes going out all the time.  The President says he wants people to know everything, which […]

He’s The CEO


It always makes me laugh how the CEO of our company has absolutely nothing to do.  It’s hilarious, but also maddening at the same time.  The company is doing terrible, financially bleeding, losing good employees and (as it would seem) on the verge of shutdown.  But the CEO walks around like he has no cares […]

She Trumps Them


I was hired into the sales role at a staffing company.  My boss laid out this wonderful training plan.  It was probably the best and most organized orientation plan I’d ever laid eyes on (on paper at least).  My entire year was all planned out in advance. Fast forward two months.  My training was going […]

Raise Raise Go Away


The company I work for has not given raises since 2002.  As much as I hate that fact and the company, I continue to work there.  People always ask me why.  The real answer is proabably because I’m stupid.  The better answer is because it’s so ridiculous there, that I stick around to see what […]

The Business Card Heard Around the World


I’ve always enjoyed the part of the movie ‘The Social Network’ where Mark Zuckerberg’s character gets business cards that say, “I’m CEO, bitch.”  I love the fact that it’s a true story. At our company, several of us actually created new business cards for our President.  However, he doesn’t know they exist because they aren’t […]

Please Hire Her


The Vice President of my company insists on hiring women for every position that comes open.  However, it’s not only that.  As someone who works closely with him, I have to listen to everything else that goes along with his perverted hiring decisions. It’s not only that we can’t hire men, but it’s that all […]

Pizza Degenerate


I work at a family owned pizza shop.  The guy who owns it is a gigantic pervert.  It’s a college town, so he likes to hire all young girls.  Needless to say, his wife, who I would describe as the most jealous person I’ve ever met, doesn’t take this very well. Thus, a normal day […]

Cash Flow


My boss is probably one of the most worthless human beings in the world.  He doesn’t care about much.  We work for a huge globally known company and he earns $700,000 per year.  He’s been there for years.  The simple fact that he earns that much money for not doing anything makes me physically sick.  […]

Sicky


My boss called in sick 72 times last year.  How is that even allowed to happen?  For the record, he wasn’t even disciplined to my knowledge and he only had 10 days of sick time available. We don’t work for a mom and pop shop.  We are a reasonable sized company with descent revenue.  But […]
