Workplace witticisms, job jokes and career quips; who says work can't be a laughing matter?
When You Have a Super $h!tty Boss
What to do? You have a job that you don’t mind getting out of bed for. Your commute isn’t all that bad. Your colleagues are good people – all except for that one Karen who karma dictates must be in your life at some point or another. The pay isn’t too bad, considering the hours and the energy required. You feel as if you are contributing to the world in some small or large way. You are lucky to be using the education that you are still making student loan payments on.
This morning, well it started out and everything was okay. I was fine until I noticed that they towed my car away. I was very stressed and didn't really feel like walking to work. Everybody driving by looked at me like I was a jerk. I knew all too well that I would be really, really late. I have a lot of things to do that I know just can't wait. I guess they will have to, until I make it there. I just saw my neighbor drive by, I wonder, does he even care? Only 2 more miles, I guess I needed the exercise. Next time I will wear athletic shoes. I guess that would be wise. Just a few more yards to go, I'm going to be on time! No, wait. It's 9:30, never mind.
First Day Freak out
Today so happened to be Jessica's first day at her new job as a clerical assistant. Jessica was setting up her new office with her family pictures and diploma on the wall. Jessica was having a great sense of pride when her Mother also called her on her office phone to congratulate her on her first new job and tell her how very proud she was of her. Jessica was on the phone and did not hear this is a test over the PA. and knew nothing of this routine fire drill.
If you see a Rat get the Rat but what if I am the rat.
During my first year in San Francisco, I started doing random promo gigs and sometimes mascot gigs. I found a well paying gig on Craigslist, which involved wearing a cheap Halloween Store brand rat suit. This costume was as cheap as it gets, it didn't even have a rat mask.
Fondling balls for money; an eight-year old’s success story
I was 8 when I made some real money off of balls. So much so, my business was shut down by ‘the man’ quickly and ruthlessly. This is my story.
I work at a hair salon in Alaska. I started in August, I just moved here, and all my life I always left jobs, my resume is full of jobs that I only worked at for six months tops.
Random tidbits from my past 13 years of being a handyman
Just a brief caveat before I dive into it: Most of the work that I did as a day laborer was back when and in between the times that my dad and I were with the union. We didn't moonlight at all.
Confessions of... a Careers Advisor
If you asked the average person to describe the job of a Careers Advisor, the words boring, humdrum, mundane and tedious would probably feature high on the list. You would be surprised. I was and I am one.

Stories of Customer Service
One of the best things that have come out of working in customer service is the stories that I got from dealing with customers and my coworkers. I have compiled some of the best memories that I have with them over social media, however, I think writing them out might help keep them preserved for revisiting.
How I lost my first job
So let’s get straight into this, As you can see from the title I started my first job when I was 15 so I’m working at a soft play company and these guys would give me the worst hours in the world like you will see in the next part why the hours were so bad. Yeah I get it, I was 15 on £4 an hour, anyway, they called me on my day off to ask me to come in for 1 hour and it was like 4 pm so I was chilling with my friends playing some Xbox doing normal kid stuff, what else are you going to do at that age right.
Waitress on Broadway
