I once had a boss 14 years ago who was so awful that when she went out for two months for Lyme disease treatment, we were overjoyed to have that monster out of our lives temporarily. We went out to dinner to celebrate and I made a toast "to the tick who bit her". Yeah, that sounds awful but I meant it!

That's how I feel when my boss goes out on one of her mystery medical leaves, I celebrate getting at least a temporary break from her.


It's unfortunate. The company overall is pretty good, they offer some decent perks compared to many in this country. I have no problem with the work I do either. It's just this miserable woman that is the problem.

I like my boss, but my coworker (who is not my boss) gets pretty bossy sometimes. She thinks she should be in charge because she is older and has been with the company longer.

We have problem with our photo stock account. The subscription has been expired since Monday and I reported it right away. And the responses? The management passed the buck on each other. I reported it like everyday with the same responses until yesterday. I ended up using the existing pictures and free stock to maintain my task which honestly downweighed me.

My supervisor finally get his butt in after he needed it for his own task (I reported to him since MONDAY, WHAT THE HELL DID HE DO?). I don't really understand how and why, but now I'm tasked to email the photostock's customer service (along with the invoice). THE HELL is it? While our department use the service as our resources, seriously it's not my job and beyond my authorization. It involves the invoice from the finance department and several confidential documents, which actually should not be accessed by junior staff like me. Moreover, I also need to work on my OWN job task....

I'm aghast right now. If it a cartoon, I must dropped my jaw to the floor.

No paying job here but I'll gripe anyway. I am recovering from rotator cuff surgery and am doing great, PT is going great, awesome mobility no pain meds needed anymore. I still have to be mindful of what I do because I do not want to F anything up. Yesterday I couldnt take the dishes anymore- I had to do them, then the counters. I mopped half the floor because people had to keep using the other part of it going in and out the back. I did some wash. I baked cookies. I ran the vacuum and the stove- oh my did it need to be cleaned. I did great-very productive. But hubby came home from OT and had to work in the yard and hardly noticed and neither did the kids. Like a baby I wanted praise for doing all that in spite of my surgery. I didnt hurt myself so no martyr business here I just felt unappreciated even though I know I am not. It was all totally me and not them.

We got a new manager at work and all my coworkers absolutely despise her because they think the position should have gone to someone who was there a lot longer. I actually donít mind her though. Sheís pretty nice. I know my coworkers complain bitterly about this job but if I can leave each day basically stress free, and the job is good for my mental health, then I donít think I should worry about whatever issues they are seeing that Iím not.

Seriously irritated. I sent my invoice to the person responsible for processing it. Apparently she had a few questions, but instead of just asking me, she sends a long email to the President and Artistic Director with all her questions, etc., and turns my invoice and proof of work into a community discussion. I responded that the invoice was processed on a certain date, and most of her questions pertain to activity that happened after that date, and that in the future, I'd appreciate it if she'd address these questions to me first.

She apologized as did the Artistic Director, but this is like the third time in a week that this group has done stuff like this, where they need to just pick up the phone and ask me a question and instead they run away with something and I have to deal with fixing it or addressing something blown out of proportion. And yes, it is threatening and upsetting to have three people commenting on my invoice, especially when I'm not happy with the contract as it currently stands (due to some new developments) and I am going to restructure the contract with them or quit. (And I've already tried to quit twice.)

Honestly, they are **** at communicating, and it's making things very frustrating for me, along with their disorganization. I don't have time for poor communication or disorganization, especially when it creates more work for me.

I keep trying to remember that it's a relatively easy side contract, and it's mostly just the headache of their disorganization that bothers me, and not any real problems with getting the work done. I think I will set up a filter on my inbox to make their emails go to a special folder that I can check at my leisure instead of having to deal with as they come in. I have difficulty NOT seeing messages in my inbox, but if it filters to their special folder, I will see there are new messages but be able to deal with them when I can be patient with them and not trying to deal with my life.

I think my coworker has kleptomania. Iíve seen her put the pen we use to clock in into her pocket before, and today I went looking for my gloves after break and I left both of them on the table but I only found the right one. I looked all over the floor for it but I didnít find it. I saw her near my table though when we were heading to break. What a weirdo.
