Lunchtime Poll: Tell me about your co-workers.

I didn't forget to post a poll topic yesterday. The truth is that I couldn't think of anything to ask about. Well, anything other than, "What should I do with my life?" No one seems to be interested in answering that one for me, so I figured I'd give you guys a break.

Anyway, this one comes from Megan and her office mates, who had the following conundrum:

Who pisses you off more - the people you work for, or the people you work with?

I really hope Megan's co-workers get the opportunity to leave a few comments, too, but leaving Megan's name out of it, of course.

There are six of us in my office, I dislike working with almost all of my coworkers. Especially the one I like to refer to as The Cryer. Yes I know it should be Crier. But it looks better. She cries a lot, at her desk. If it's not one thing it's another, this girl just can't catch a break.

To be honest, I like everyone I work with AND for...

there only four of us and outside the boss we all do almost the same thing, but due to me being at least 12 years younger than everyone i have to answer the phones, clean the office, run all the errands and buy and change the toilet paper, so NO i don't love my work fellows....

On the whole I like most of the people I work with. and for...but I'd have to say, more of the people I work with piss me off. But then again, I probably piss them off too.

i hear that! i am more educated than the women i work with, they are NOT my superiors, but since I am 24 and they are 50+, I am expected to do all the crap around here. (i.e. if the phone rings, my coworkers will just ignore it. if i also ignore it, they will glare at me until i answer it). I hate my coworkers, and I hate being a secretary. i am not sassy enough for this job.
i dont interact too much with my bosses. They are both over 60, so we have very little to talk about. sometimes we try to have a conversation, but it fizzles pretty quickly due to my inability to find a more appropriate response than the giggle and nod, or the sympathetic sigh and eye roll.

Um, I'll have to e-mail you an essay.

Until then, I hate the people I work with more, mostly because of The Cannibal, who thinks I'm gross for eating baked goods.

I hated my coworker (a LOT) until Monday, at which point she became my ex-coworker... because I got fired.

I hate the 20s. Ugh.

Sara said...

Bwahahaha.

I hated my LAST job. In this job, I'm doing actual productive stuff instead of bitch work. Plus, I work with a small team. A pretty sweet setup overall, I think :)

It's going to be OK! *pats you on the back, hands you a homemade oatmeal raisin cookie*

the only affinity i feel for anyone at my office are the people i have nothing to do with except after-work-working.

oh, have i mentioned that my job is turning me into an alcoholic?

it is.

Sara said...

My last job was doing that to me... quitting was the best thing I ever did.
