My boss is SUCH a baby. Such a guy. He had work last night that had to be done after 5. So he was so obsessed with it that he failed to do the work that was done during work hours. Pawning it off on me.

He just likes to talk to people and fails to do his work. I am too freaking sick of it.

Work sucks like always. This week I had so many overtime that if we accumulate them, it could be 8 hours.

I don't know how many times I've said it, but I want to say it again. Dear Boss, I hate you.

Nothing really to gripe about today. I wasnít feeling good as usual but work itself was fine.

Kinda funny but now everyone is required to wear gloves and Iím wondering if itís because I told them about my infection. I know when I mentioned it to the manager she made some comment about the backroom being somewhat clean. I did not give any indication that I got the infection at work. But I mean where else would I have gotten it from. Plus a nosy coworker asked me if I got it from touching something so who knows what gossip sheís spreading around. I havenít heard anything about it besides the just wear gloves part.

People at work talk over me and are loud and large so they end up being noticed more. All they have to do is talk about something I did and it looks like they did it. When I try to say I did it I am ďtalking over themĒ. Makes me so angry.

I am really glad I got off work early since I felt like crap. Iím wondering why they have been so screwy with the hours lately though. Itís like from Drag Race ďis there no budget?Ē Last year at this time I was working 45 minutes more a day then I have been working this year.

My job isnít really understanding and I donít expect them to since I donít even understand whatís going on. I donít know why things are so hard all of a sudden when nothing has changed. Itís got to be my change in meds thatís making me feel this way.

The workplace goes from bad to worse. So many good co-workers resigned or gotten fired. The bosses assign even more work when they know I am overloaded. I hate my new manager, my boss, and my supervisor. I have to admit, that I'm starting to have some disagreement with the other manager. I have been searching for a new job, but I haven't gotten any interview yet. Meanwhile, one of the coworkers that I trust.... turned out to be a big liar, perhaps narcissistic.

Still feeling like crap. Work is still hard. Same **** different day. What I donít get is why I couldnít push through today since itís only 3 days this week and then a 4 day holiday weekend. This is really not normal for me.

The coworker Iíve been working with never takes out the garbage. When I come back from break heís piled the boxes so high and he just expects me to take it out. He doesnít understand English so asking him would be useless. Iím thinking of going to my supervisor about him. Towards the end of the day a nice coworker took the garbage for me I think because he knew I hadnít been getting any help all day. The coworker I was working with was also using my equipment too instead of his own.

My job is making me feel stupid and unemployable.

This entire year, I've had no real work in my area of specialization. I've been asked to help with other things (documenting content, mostly) because our content team didn't have enough resources to assign someone to a massive project that we're doing.

I want to cry. All the time. I almost quit today... our legal team reviewed the content document, and made changes in a crazy, chaotic manner that meant I spent the entire day having to compare each page to the old version to try to identify and mark changes.

I feel like my skills are just rotting. And yes, I know, I plan to do some soul-searching over my break at the end of the year and start trying to put together a resume.

(There's a lot going on in my life, so it's been stressful and hard to find time to focus on this - plus I think I may want to move, but I'm not sure, and that will affect where I start applying to.)

Thanks for this thread!
