Ever since we re-launched the Web site you guys have been e-mailing in your workplace gripes. I figured I’d take the morning off (and do some real work) and let you release some of your workstration!
"I wear a suit everyday and my female co-workers wear sweatpants. If I came in looking like I was heading to the gym, my boss would send me home…maybe forever." –Anthony (Pawtucket, RI)
"My 401K plan sends me a piece of mail every single day. I never understand any of it. By the time I retire, there won’t be any trees left." – Rosemary (Long Beach, CA)
"With all of the technology currently available, why are so many of us still chained to desks?" –B. (NYC)
"People need to understand that revolving doors are not motorized. You need to push the damn thing and not rely on other people to do it for you!" –Josh (Boston, MA)
"Sitting in a cubicle for eight hours a day, five days a week, should pay a million dollars a minute. The original creators of the corporate lifestyle should go play with a dirty needle." -Michael (NYC)
"Attention Corporate America: Would it kill you to pipe some music into your bathrooms? Do you think I like hearing Pete from sales in the third stall every morning making all kinds of grunts and splats? Cheap bastards." –Brian
"I hate when my boss says, ‘Now I just want you to know, this is no refection on you…’ Simply put, it is a DIRECT reflection on me! Just say it, you don’t think I’m fit to be a manager!" –Traci (Oceanside, CA)
"Someone needs to introduce my boss to a breath mint." – Mark (Orlando, FL)
"My favorite is when we have a meeting about setting up a meeting. Just say what you have to say and let’s get on with it." –Teddy (Reno, NV)
"I have a guy in my office who is constantly leaving anonymous signs everywhere! ‘If you jam the printer, fix it’ or ‘Please don’t clog the toilets.’ Meanwhile, EVERYONE knows who is writing them!" –Tom (Greenville, SC)
"I eat lunch at my desk, and everyday without fail, my boss has to ask me a pointless question two bites in!" –Jeremy K. (Mystic, CT)
