The Inside Job


I work in Accounting for a mid-size company.  Recently I was reconciling some charges on one of the corporate credit cards and noticed something funny.  One card, that only certain Executives have access to, had more than $10,000 in charges to a local retail store on it. Once he was informed of the fraudulent charges […]

Office Hide-A-Way


Although he’s not my direct boss, I have to tell you about the president of our company.  He’s literally in love with the two girls that work in sales.  It’s great and makes the office grapevine so freaking awesome.  Basically, all we do all day is talk about the president! For instance, when the president […]

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 2004.  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, albeit short-lived, story. At our company, several of us actually created new business cards for our President.  However, he doesn’t know they exist because […]

Was I Here Last Night


My boss is the Controller of our company.  He’s a little quirky, but overall, not a bad guy.  Once in a while, we have to travel together for work. Whenever we travel, my boss has his routine.  It’s always the exact same thing.  Go to meetings, then find a bar to play billiards, then drink […]

Please Hire Her


The 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 the women […]

I Love You More


My boss is a very unique lady.  She’s very eccentric, especially when it comes to the relationship she has with her husband.  For example, they have to talk on the phone at least once every hour throughout the day.  Sometimes it’s multiple times every hour.  Interestingly, that doesn’t even include her constant texting and e-mailing […]

Her Life Story


My boss is the kind of person who will tell you her entire life story in the first five minutes that you meet her.  Literally.  Based on the industry we work in, we are out and about a lot; and it’s mortifying when she starts in on her ‘story.’ Imagine this.  You meet her…you introduce […]

Hard Sleeper


I work in a job where I have to travel all the time.  I’m literally on the road three weeks out of every month.  It’s not a bad job and I love the hotel/airline/credit card rewards.  I fashion myself as a traveler similar to George Clooney in ‘Up in the Air.’ My boss is not […]
