The Wow Man


My boss makes every single decision based on if a woman is involved in the deal and if so, how beautiful she is.  We all laugh at him because he always says the same thing about every woman too.  “Wow!”  This has been going on for years. It is usually, “Wow, she is hot.”  Or, […]

Dancing With the Boss


I’m a younger guy and have only been out of school for a few years.  I guess you could say that I’m still learning the workforce and where I want to go with my career.  I currently work for a non-profit and for now, it’s a descent job for me. The organization employs mostly younger […]

Unanswered Calls


I used to work for a mid-sized nursing home.  Since it was the healthcare industry, as you can imagine, there were various ‘on-call’ practices that had to be in place for several company leaders at night and over the weekends. My boss, who was in charge of the nursing home, always forgot to send around […]

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 […]

He Had A Dream


The owners of our company decided to renovate the building that most of us worked in.  We are in manufacturing, so there is a plant there too.  We are a smaller company and the original plan was to spend $7M on the renovation.  That seemed like a lot of money at the time, but the […]

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 our President uses had more than $10,000 in charges to a local retail store on it. Once he was informed of the fraudulent charges on the corporate […]

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 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 […]
