Cart pushing sucks

I’m a cart attendant and have been getting shit on for the last four years. Every day I think my job can’t get any worse, and yet somehow it does. I work at Sam’s Club, and I’ve been miserable ever since. I just can’t wait to fucking quit. Being alone sucks, especially during a weekend where it’s busy as if it’s a Thanksgiving-Christmas holiday or some shit. I struggle, can’t manage to keep up because too many goddamn people just

Fed up

I work as an admin assistant, supporting a sales team. There’s a bunch of things I would love to say to my boss/colleagues but can’t because I need the money and can’t risk being fired. Firstly, there’s a lot of things which are the fault of other branches/departments but which somehow morph into being my fault because I ostensibly don’t discover them early enough. A) it’s not me who has made the fuck up in the first place and B)

Call Center

I was a shift lead in a call center for prepaid phones. A female coworker smiled at me one morning and a 30 year old brat gave me an obnoxious temper tantrum over it. If anyone had been on a call, their customer would have heard his tirade. I went to management with this as I felt it was not my job to take it. More hostility and hate. Turned out he is her favorite little boy under her skirt.

Manipulative low-minded fuck- brains

Why do you both get to use the air? You spread misery, poison and liquid shit with every breath. The world would be better if you both stopped breathing, but I know that’s too much to ask. Maybe just stop fucking talking. Ok, that’s too much as well. How about you stop talking shit about other people? Surely that’s possible. I have just been on holiday for two weeks and I met and spent time with a lot of people-

My paranoid narcissistic boss

I work for a narcissistic paranoid boss who never admits he’s wrong. Always yelling, especially when there are people around to show that he’s more superior than you. He’s always swearing and cursing, making sexual remarks that can definitely get him fired. He is a toxic person to work with, always finds fault in everyone but himself. He is a racist, favoring people who have the same nationality as him, thinks he’s funny when making fun of people. I hate

I hate my job so much I started drinking and hiding the bottles from family. I had a job and boss I liked but left for greener pastures. Big mistake. I hate my boss, my work and my commute. The time drags and the days are without end. Any given day I am told this project is top. Drop anything else. Then in the middle something else goes to the top and the project stops. There are 5 admin but

Upper Management are Driving me Insane.

I work at an opticians and I really enjoy my job, I’m decent at it and get on great with the people there. I’m alone most the time but I talk with the people in the shops nearby. It took me months to get this job after being made redundant at my last one, despite getting interviews daily there were always hundreds of other applicants, and most had multiple stages so I was getting “into the top 10” and “down

Journey to Get Sick

Tilted, Disgusted, Disturbed. I have felt tilted and sick of this job for ages while working in the office. I thought nothing could get worst. But then, this shit hole has beat me to it. I’m being made to do something out of my job role. Something that is not even in where I am assigned to. I was moved from the office to work from home to the warehouse. I thought how shit the office is, how I need

My boss is an asshole

I’ve been working in my company for almost 3 years and I honestly don’t know what crawled up my boss’ ass this year. He turned into a complete asshole. His communication skills have been reduced to yelling at me at every chance he got. He has been a complete nightmare to work with. He is a micromanaging, resentful, disrespectful bully. He keeps on bringing up trivial mistakes that he does not let go of at every chance he has. He

Graphic Designer being told how to design

I work for a community college and have 2-3 superiors over me depending on the day and what I am designing for. This project was to showcase a new bachelors degree program we are getting in the fall and I created this beautiful social media post after doing hours of research to see what the new trends were in design. Broken and split text is very popular right now so I incorporated it into my design. and just bc my

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.
