Being a nanny is not all au pair dreams movies sometimes it is a nightmare

I was a nanny/au pair and governess and my advice is always before starting make sure get past nannies references about the family you are sitting for. It swings both ways and its just as wise to know who you are looking after and why they left and how many they had and getting the families references because the richer they are the meaner the cherubs are. never again. firstly don’t always just give them what they want. any parents

Bad Employee Morale

I work for a pretty good company but there are some aspects that are just so bad for employee morale and make several of us hate our job. In my department, there are 3 separate teams. Each team has a team leader and team coach. Their jobs are to just sit there and make sure all the regular employees are doing what they’re supposed to be doing. That’s literally all they do, plus team leaders are always off in some

Lawyers are dumb as hell

I work at a law office so you’d assume a prerequisite to that would first be to know how to fucking read, but apparently about 4 out of 4 of the attorneys here just simply cannot do that. They ask me to read shit that is CLEARLY on their calendar and it answers every little dumbass question they could possibly have but still ask me…like why the fuck am I doing this in detail if you’re just gonna ask me

The Future is Freelance

For the past couple of years, I have carved out a reputation as a writer amongst friends and community, and have managed to earn a semi part time living from it. I have worked for almost nothing, sometimes zilch just to build a name.

Life of a Designer

A coffee mug sitting on the table; drips of it dry and crusted to the sides, some still streams down like rain. A sluggish rain, almost like time has taken a back seat and decided to go at its own rate.

What a Bitch

I come in and wear the costume, it was a huge fur suit, a huge furry head, and hooves for my hands and feet. It was also ridiculously hot, and the store was packed with people due to the sale.

The Story Behind the Rants

Years ago, I was bitter and hated going in to work every day. My friends hated their jobs, too, and we'd often tell our horror stories. It felt good to vent. One of us came up with the idea to make a website where everyone can share their anonymous job tales.

We found this epic website name and we threw a site together. It was clunky and ugly and awful to maintain, but it got the job done and we had a lot of fun hearing from frustrated employees worldwide. We even started to appreciate our jobs (a little) more. At one point, we ran out of time and motivation and the site was abandoned and offline for many years.

Recently, I decided to resurrect the beast, but with a different focus this time. I got a little tired of complaining and commiserating and decided to see what I could do to help people in crappy job situations, thus the new freelancing advice section was born. But the foundation and soul of Work Sucks is the rants, and they are back in all their glory. Enjoy.

P.S. Don't forget to share your rant!
