"Ask A Manager" Update: The Hellmouth is Still Open

Remember the LW whose job was situated over the Hellmouth? Like every day is a new apocalypse?

This AAM Update Is So Good, It'll Make Your Day Better

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.

Whine About My Spouse (Updated) Whine About My Spouse (Updated)

I have delivered two children. One c-section, one vbac (during which I tore, including ~inside~).

I Just Got Six Seven Robocalls in a Row

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.

I Forgot It Was My Anniversary... VOTE!

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.

Creepy Stuff to Watch & Request for Recommendations

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…

AAM: Dayum. Uh. Thoughts and Prayers?

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.

Ask A Manager: The Boss is Banging the Intern, Isn't He?

Either he’s paying his mistress or this is the best 2-day-a-week “unpaid” internship on the planet.

Random Work Stuff

- Colleague is back (background available here, here, here and here) Haven’t talked to her yet. I hope she’s well. I also can’t wait to give her work load back. Miiiiiiight be a while on that, though.

Can We Talk About Dirty John?

I just recently binged the podcast (which was fantastic) and now Bravo has dropped the trailer for their limited series:

A Deep Dark Confession... (/s, obv)

So... someone that I am kind of close to (A) is dating someone (B). By all accounts and first-hand interactions, B is a legit super nice, wonderful human being. Like, in every way, B is good people.

My Work Situation: A Mini Update

The colleague, she is still out on “leave”. No return date yet. No official comment on “why”, which puts it squarely in the realm of “HR” so it doesn’t take a rocket scientist.

Who Loves Wedding Drama? I Love Wedding Drama

Is this real? Probably? I mean, it’s almost too ridiculous to be true but there are FB screenshots, including replies so...

For the Ask A Manager Readers...

Over on Slate, Alison Green has compiled a list of the the 8 worst bosses in her column’s history.

That Awkward Work Situation May Have Come to a Head

I’ve posted before about a coworker with anxiety that’s so bad I literally had to go alert my boss about her slurring her way through a meeting with a Project Manager. Well... she is now “out until further notice.”

Awkward. So. Awkward. Have to unload this.

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.

Brookstone Filing For Bankruptcy, Will Close All Mall Stores

“The mall and airport seller, best known for massage chairs, quirky gadgets, and travel luggage...”

Just me or are a bunch of new users shit-replying lately?

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.
