The world is full of shitty people and things and I love reading about those from the safe distance of advice columns, including Ask A Manager. Allison Green is not only great with her advice, she often posts updates.
I have delivered two children. One c-section, one vbac (during which I tore, including ~inside~).
One per minute. I never answer them but I also don’t usually get more than 1-3 in a day. Six in a row now has me concerned that this will be my life.
So focused on breathing in and out of a paper bag between now and the polls closing that I didn’t remember it was my anniversary until my friend (yes, she has Rain Man levels of retention for dates) texted me.
As is my annual tradition, I spend from ~09/15 through Thanskgiving watching as much horror/creepiness as I can stream for free. I’m open to recommendations (note: I’m personally not into “Hostel” levels of gore, prefer true crime and ghost stuff). Assume I’ve seen most of the big name stuff like The Exorcist and The…
I’ve got some awkward work stories but either this job really is situated on a hellmouth or they need to get some cameras in to record a for real “The Office” because it’s A LOT.

Is this real? Probably? I mean, it’s almost too ridiculous to be true but there are FB screenshots, including replies so...
Over on Slate, Alison Green has compiled a list of the the 8 worst bosses in her column’s history.

I previously posted about a colleague who suffers from anxiety and had a meeting where she was basically falling apart to the point that I said something to our boss afterwards.
“The mall and airport seller, best known for massage chairs, quirky gadgets, and travel luggage...”
I’ve gotten some seriously snarky, downright rude replies lately. I’ve dismissed several replies in the last 24 hours. I can’t remember the last time I felt compelled to do so. I also flagged someone yesterday (they weren’t replying to me but *repeatedly* posted) for inflammatory comments.
