I have to vent for a second - I can't stand when people don't use the easier way with technology. I sit here and create things on our website and in the database and they just consistently do it the old, hard way. It's fucking annoying. It's taken me five years to get a lot of the older people here to move with the times and yet it feels more like we've moved just an inch.

I've been at my current job 8 years and my boss made it crystal clear from day one...work smarter, not harder.

This is my world. We can email exams with our company, people still want faxes, or even worse want hard copies. Really? I can get it to you in 5 seconds and you'll wait 2-3 days via the fucking horsey express?

oh man, hard copies. fuck that shit. It's the same here. "can I get a copy of x?" sure I say "can you print it off?" NO. Why do we still need to waste paper when 5 seconds is all it takes to have it in your Outlook, on your computer and your phone. Dumbasses.

I seriously feel like this guy half the time:

Fuck my life right now. Shits going down at work and I hope I still have a job at the end of the month. Certain people have been told our store is closing, while others haven't been told. I can (and should) be transferred to a different store, but it worries me that I haven't been told by an owner the store is closing. I'm Union and have 17+ years with the company. I hope to everything the company isn't going to try to screw me out of a job. I've been trying to get in touch with my Union rep and he's always in a meeting when I call. He gets out of his meetings while I'm at work. I just need confirmation from my Union that I can't be screwed out of a job.

The fucking fat bitch that I work with in our office shits horribly 2-3 times a day. We have a decent size office and it smells the whole place up. She gets REAMED by my dad all the time. He tells her to go home, go to quiktrip, go anywhere other than in the bathroom here.

This fucking fat bitch dude JESUS. She is the epitome of fat america. Shes fucking always complaining about not having any money yet she shows up to work at 7:55 with Hardees. And she always gets a 2 for whatever. So she has a sausage egg and cheese biscuit at 8. Then she will go back in to the back and make 2 pieces of cheese toast and grits at about 8:30. Then she will finish off that second biscuit at like 10. Thats when Julie comes in, and she purposely buys a 2 for whatever of whatever she gets for breakfast to give to Bonnie, who says "I'm full right now but I'll save it for my breakfast in the morning". 5 minutes later that shit is gone. ALWAYS. The come lunch time she goes and gets Taco Smell or something terrible like that, gets multiple shit off the dollar menu along with 1 of the more expensive items and tears it up. This is at 1 oclock. Then the nurses start to pour in. This is an everyday occurrence too, I love our nurses they are really cool chicks. They work in all sorts of different parts of the city so they are constantly trying different places for breakfast/lunch/snack. So they will come back to the office with like Candied popcorn or fried pickles or some sort of special bread from this crazy ass bakery. And they always set it on Bonnies desk and tell her to share it with everyone else. BOOM about 15 minutes later its gone and everyone else has maybe had a taste. One of our nurses found a popcorn store that she fell in love with and goes there all the time, atleast 2 times a week and always brings back a bag or 2 for the office. These arent small bags either, they should last a few days even with 4-5 people eating them. The passed few months shell get everyone their own bag and shell give them to Bonnie to pass out when we get back from lunch. By the time I got back today, She got me peanut butter and jelly, my fucking favorite, it was half gone. FAT FUCKING CUNT. I swear shes had 5000 calories today. This bitch was like 300 pounds at one point, dropped down to about 150 and is pushing 250 again.

I caught someone from the 5th floor being a fucking tourist today in the bathroom. I glared as they made the shameful walk back to the elevator.

This means war.

Test her.....go to Krispy Kreme and get a dozen glazed donuts. Spilt them in half. Then go buy a couple pounds of bacon, a couple pounds of sausage and a couple pounds of cheese. Make 12 sausage, bacon and cheese breakfast sandwiches and tell her to share. She'll either share or eat all twelve and drop on the spot. Of course it's up to you what to do.

I have considered both of the above. My dad went to a speciality cupcake place a few weeks back and bought a dozen different cupcakes for about 30-40 dollars. She ate 7 in the span of 30 minutes. He was not happy, I don't even think they were for us, pretty sure they were for my daughter and niece and nephews.

Be sure to use the chocolate flavored ex-lax squares (if they still make them). For extra cruelty, hide all the TP in the bathroom from her to.

same here. It's caused me depression, anxiety, and relationship problems with my girlfriend in the past 2 years. I am ready to quit my job without another one and even make a career change because of it. That's how much of scumbags they are. I'm pretty sure they even violated some workplace safety laws when moving us into our new building too.

Combine this with long-term family problems and I just don't enjoy life anymore.

Working in a call center. If I ever said on the phone how I feel about the company I represent (and do not technically work for) I would be dragged out of the room by Feds before I could hang up the phone.
