Technical Service Rep

Let’s see. If there was ever a job that made you realize how fucking dumb the human race is, it’s customer service of any type. the next time I say press the select button and a customer says “press the power button??” I’m going to fucking rip my phone out of the cubicle and slam it on the fucking ground…. not to mention… when a fucking customer calls me an idiot and says that I don’t know how to do

Console operator what a shit boring job. Beep Beep another pump needs to be authorized. I stand behind a bloody counter for 6 hours a day doing the same shit different day over & over. Customers always in a hurry, rude inconsiderate and think you’re stupid just because your a console operator. People always complaining about the fuel prices when you have no control over it I wish they would just shut up & piss off if you dont want

Tech Support Kills Your Soul

I work at a company as “the IT guy” and a portion of my job is end user support, both onsite and over the phone. There is nothing more frustrating than dealing with people who are, you would think, too stupid live. People who think the desktop is their actual DESK. Idiots who call with the always popular “Nothing works. What is wrong?” Dumbasses that don’t know how to turn a computer on. Irritated know-it-all’s who get offended when you

2 of the Worst

I work in a small non profit with two of the worst senior managers I have ever had the misfortune to set eyes on. power hungry, micromanaging bitches both combined with a complete INABILITY TO MAKE DECISIONS. So I have ranting clients and a soaring caseload and SM is footling about on stuff they should bloody delegate to admin and finance. I despair I wake up every morning feeling sick about going into work. Somehow they retain the power (and

Soul Sucking Job

You can never go back to prison once you have been set free. I worked at a soul sucking job for two decades selling my freedom and integrity for a paycheque and dealing with energy sucking vampire managers. My spouse was tired of my last manager, who was not only draining my energy, but draining his as well since I would always be in a state of either dreading to go to work or coming home in a bad mood.

Harbinger of Death

Working in New York City is not an easy job to begin with. Try to work in a mom and pop jewelery store. Don’t get me wrong, I like the people I work with. However it is the manager that I just utterly hate. First of all the manager doesn’t no shit on how to work a computer. His only skills is checking his emails and talking on the phone about baseball events. Hello? What does that gotta do with

The Worst Boss

First off, I have the worst boss! She knows nothing about my job position. When I came to this department, my position was left vacant for over a month so I was thrown in to try and play catch up. Pretty hard to do when you don’t know what you’re doing! Plus she just couldn’t seem to understand why I was having a hard time with the work load. Um, some proper training would be great!! Did I mention there

Chronically Depressed Eeyore

There is this woman who sits directly behind me and she is the most irritating woman on the planet… she’s driving me insane!! She can probably read this, just like she reads everything else on my screen. Every other sentance out of her mouth is a whining complaint about her work, or an ‘Oh no’ or an ‘Ohhh god’ and when she isn’t making loud whining complaints she’s either sighing loudly, yawning as though she’s trying to break a record

I Am a Sucker

i am a sucker. i had a wonderful job in another city, and moved back home because my parents got sick. i took a job at the same place that my fathers work to help take the load off of him after he had a triple by-pass. Even though i cut my pay in half, i did this set an example for this company. it was on the verge of closing, and had no direction. For years i have given

Shipping Department A Hole

Why are all shipping departments breeding grounds for the mentally perverted or criminally insane? I feel like I have to gear up with kevlar, chain mail, and the Kentucky militia, just to ask this guy a simple question. When ever you are being civil with this guy, he BREATHS FIRE! (or spits while he talks) He’s always stomping around(literally)and making a racket. One of my coworkers was defecating in the bathroom, when this guy storms in and proceeds to sit

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!
