    The manager’s response to his offer killed me. “I don’t even get paid that much. Why do you think you deserve this much?”

    My favorite was the manager telling the employee he "gambled and lost" because he scheduled vacation in advance. That'll win him back.

    Anti work is always a good read. It could also be called anti management. My god having that person in charge of managing IT and they can’t even resolve a minor human request. I’m 100% positive the external they brought in charged them an asshole fee to resolve the issue as well.

    I find it offensive (among other things) that the company didn't just accept his $10,000 offer to fix the "state daily file," and cross-train the staff, but instead were over-emotional twats about it. What a dopey company.

    I was close to doing this with my company but they actually told us last week we get the day off when originally we didn't. We have employee resource groups that are supposed to help boost minority and underrepresented group experiences, very shallow if you don't give the bare minimum holiday off.

    There are roughly 20 of us on a call between our company and representatives of one of our major customers. One of the guys from the customer is a known blowhard who sees every conversation as a competition he must win. One of my employees is presenting - she's brilliant and well spoken, and she's a German engineer so she is detail oriented to the most minute level. He keeps interrupting her to shoot holes in her presentation and she keeps dunking on him deftly and concisely then moving on.

    It's like watching someone run headlong into a brick wall, get up, then run right back at it even faster a hundred times in a row. This is the most fun I've had at work all week.

    Izzy is back everyone. This happened today as she was coming into the office.

    Izzy yelling back at the open door of our office into the hallway: WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? I'LL FUCK YOU UP. DON'T YOU DARE DISRESPECT ME.

    Izzy walks into the office to everyone staring at her: This guy on the elevator called me a douchebag. I'LL FUCKING KILL HIM

    Jeff: Wait, what just happened?

    Izzy: I was in the elevator minding my own business and this asshole next to me mutters under his breath "douchebag"

    Jeff: Wait, that's it? How do you know he was talking to you?

    Izzy: It was just us in the elevator, who else was he talking to?

    Jeff: He could have just been thinking out loud.

    Izzy getting upset again: You don't know. You weren't there. I'll fuck that guy up.

    Our building is two stories. One office on the 1st floor and 2 on the second. The odds of running into this guy again are extremely high.

    She will "fuck you up"! Maybe I am sheltered, but I've never heard of calling a woman a d-bag? CF3234 is there a chance you could interview elevator guy and report back? Any chance there's a picture of Izzy in the other office urinal? People want to know.

    Tell me you're fat without telling me you're fat.

    Seriously, in pre-plague times this was a huge peeve of mine at the courthouse. Especially because there was an escalator in sight of the elevator banks and still people would take up precious space to ride to the second floor.

    We have a cafeteria in my office and there’s an elevator that opens into it. There’s only 2 floors. People who come out of it are judged.

    Not that it’s any better, but it’s technically 2 floors up. The garage is below the 1st floor.

    cringeworthy in a different way, but one of my employees has had some health issues and mentioned having to have a biopsy on Friday (wasn't sure for what), so when she returned to work yesterday I called to ask how she was doing. Biopsy came back negative thankfully, but she proceeded to give me way too many details of what turned out to be gynecological issues and what her further treatment was going to entail.

    Tried to sound unphased and sympathetic but I felt like my face was melting Raiders of the Lost Ark style

    The one good thing my company spent a bunch of time on before I was hired was at least getting these dozen of apps all tied to one single sign-on through Okta so we don't have passwords for each.
