Uneducated and entitled; part 1

I genuinely believe this is the start of something I will be doing frequently. I have repressed all frustration and anger as a result of a job that I can only describe as a fairytale gone bad. I work at an Embassy in a third world country. I cannot disclose more for fear of being reprimanded. First things first, it was my dream to become an employee at an Embassy. I always wanted to work with diplomats, since in my

Escape the rat race

Work sucks. We should pursue our dreams. It seems as if we are trapped and sold into slavery. We can not live our lives or chase our dreams because we have to go to work tomorrow. Or we dont have the money right? There is a solution! I am forty years old and I have had over 100 jobs since the age of 15. They are all pretty much the same. After spinning my wheels for twenty years I finally

I apparently can’t handle sweeping

I work at McDonald’s, it’s by far one of the worst places to work I’ve had so many dumb issues with them, from them using my break to smoke to having to apologize to costumers because my manager went off yelling at them because she was having a bad day. Today was no exception and just proves how rude and how unprofessional McDonald’s “crew members” and managers are, I swear we have zero morals when it comes to hiring new

I am not here because I care

I am only working at this crap hole of a job because I am a single parent and this job is 3 miles from my house and kids school…. that is literally it. every day I’m given something to do and then constantly being asked… “is it done? did you do it?” umm okay. either YOU learn how to do it or SHUT THE HELL UP AND LEAVE ME ALONE. I’m DOING IT MORON. If you’d stop bothering me I

Screwing to get on top

Well… title says it all. I left the job because my boss was making it pretty well known that he was having some sort of office affair with our HR. That was just the icing to the cake. There’s much more to the story here. Cooked books. Backstabbing. Gossiping. Blaming other. The list goes on… Who could I complain to? HR? Oh wait, nope! Me and him worked great together until little miss priss got hired 4 months after i

Laser skin qualifications and legislation a mess

don’t go to laser skin workshops with cowboy colleges offering 2 day workshops on how to practically use a laser on skin for $2,200.00 its a waste of money. legislation will be soon changed for only dermatologists to use them. not nurses and not beauty therapists. that goes for botox and all other cosmetic type treatments. don’t have chemical peels done they hurt and can cause injury. don’t get tattoos done. don’t get botox. just save your self and keep

medical bully disable woman

I just want to warn people about medical workshop scams going around. There are some weird ones. Look you really can not teach a novice how to draw blood in a 2 day workshop, it might be fine if they are a nurse or medical person working in the some medical job but largely 2 days is not enough time to train you properly when there are 6months and 12 months courses in it. These guys got my money, I

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 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!
