Rocky


People always tell me that I work for a very bizarre company.  The two owners are brothers and definitely march to their own beat. From what I see and am told, the company does pretty well.  It’s just getting over the weird behavior with the brothers/owners that is the hurdle. The brothers are nice.  But […]

He’s So Clean


I work for an office cleaning company.  Therefore, I’m in and out of several buildings every single day.  There is one company, in particular, that I hate cleaning.

I work for a pretty big company.  I won’t share the name, but definitely a brand you’d recognize.

Toilet Malfunction


I hope you’ll consider publishing my story.  My boss seems like an OK guy, although I’m not always sure what exactly he does every day.  We work in sales.  My job is to source the leads and start to build relationships with the potential clients.  Then I’m supposed to get my boss involved when an […]
