Kinda fun to delve into some S'castic's humor and see what peeps jabbed about ........
I DID like the remark ............. "How was your colonoscopy?" ...........
Personally, IF someone asked .......... I would at once get out my photo book and show them IMAGES ........... "Here is my colon" ............... Here is the long tube .........
"THIS IS ME SCREAMING!!" .................. emoticon AND these are the words I heard the nurse say to the Doctor ............... emoticon ............

Anybody have anything to add? ..............

it is very frustrating when people do not get that I'm not being "mean"when I'm being sarcastic... I just should not always have to point out the obvious!

It is realy frustrating to deal with office politics: partically things that are unethical, illiegal or unneccesarily stupid.

This week was good for me for the most part. I was annoyed because on monday i felt like i had to spell out some oblivious things to idiots that never figured it out before. on the other hand they responed quickly so i was able to do some fun things this week.

Hmmmm .....

I spent about 4 years in HR before going back to training and my basic job was to keep my companies managers, both male and female, out of those kinds of problems.

Even though I told them and told them and gave them manuals to keep for themselves, it was always an adventure coming into work.

Taking the bathing suits back to Victoria's Secret just might be grounds for sexual harassment. I'm pretty sure it wasn't in your job description or mentioned in any sort of hiring interview - but then again, you can tell them and tell them and they still don't get it until they have to pay unemployment for a bad termination.

That Usually got my bosses attention, because it took money away from the bottom line with increased unemployment premiums.

Hi-I'm Sarah & new to this group. This thread caught my eye because I have an office job doing HR and well......do I need to explain anymore? LoL. A little work week venting always helps when the owners of your company a)Satan b)Husband & Wife. I actually had to tell my boss that he cannot ask a female employee if she is planning to have kids because it's illegal and he can get sued, and then I had to return 3 boxes of Victoria's Secrets bathing suits that his wife didn't want. Aahh, if only work was like the tv show The Office ;)

I currently work for the most difficult boss I have ever worked for - actually, I should say that I'm working for him again. Earlier in my career, I worked for him, and even though I learned a great deal, he was a flippin' workaholic and expected me to be one, too.

Hey, I had a family!

He was absolutely the best method of birth control I've ever seen in my entire life. Six and seven days a week, "You can do it", "think of how much satisfaction you'll get when the project is through"!

He wasn't going to give me more money. I was technically in what was a supervisory position - which basically meant he could work the h3ll out of me and not pay me any overtime. It was probably the only time in my life that I dreamed about belonging to a union.

Steady hours, a couple of days off, a vacation, all of those things were only dreams to him - and subsequently for me.

He finally sold the business and I got out of bondage - really! I felt like I had been a slave the whole time.

I showed him, though. I found a job with way better hours. Heck, I could do 50-60 hours a week standing on my head with one of my arms tied to one of my legs. I even had time for a vacation - and the money! I worked in a business that was closed on government holidays, and with the Monday thing got 3 or 4 or 5 three day week ends that I got paid for the Monday.

I guess when they say, "What goes around comes around" it means you are going to get what you got or catch what you've caught or something like that, because I'm working for him once again.

I don't know what's happened, but he's different this time. He's learned how to chill now. Things that used to drive him crazy ("Bob, if you're on time, you're already 15 minutes late!") don't bother him nearly as much. On time is good enough.

The hours are better, too. If we've had a really tense week, he sometimes lets me go home a few hours early - or better yet, I get to start the next day a couple of hours later than my usual time.

I'm sure we've all had a boss like mine sometime in the past, because my worst boss and my best boss were one in the same. They were me. I finally got to the point where I could really set and keep priorities - those priorities being my wife, family, church and friends and He who has blessed me with all of them, my Lord.

However my week was, I'm responsible for it. The only thing that's bugging me now is that with all the snow and thawing, my garden is too squishy to work in. But I'll get there - or not. It just depends.

Chris - wish you were at my office this week and let someone have it! I've probably had the worst week at a job in a good 3 years. I have learned how to handle people and stress but this week has been out of control. I basically had to work with someone who didn't like anything I did, made me change documents a zillion times, etc. Just like banging my head on a wall. Yesterday, he finally accepted the documents as what he wanted so now I just got to wait a week or so to find out what others think (it has to go through 3 more reviews by others). But at least I'm done dealing with that specific individual for a week or so. Apparently, he is known for being very abrasive etc and he moves from job to job so this is normal behavior for him. And he was treating me like a baby and blaming me for the schedule slip etc and not getting what I was asking for. Pretty funny though because I ended being right on several things. It just took a high high level manager to tell that to his face before he'd accept it. No way was he going to accept it from a newbie on the job (me).

Well I finally had enough of a person this week and let her have it, she was out of line and I'd had enough. I usually just ignore it hoping she'll get the message that what she thinks is of no consequences...... when all said and done, I told everyone that they should THANK ME! as it will now be very QUIET for awhile at least !
