    New Jersey 101.5 FM - Grumpy Co-Workers Top Workplace Annoyances

    I'd say those are my top three as well. What say you?

    co workers are such a hassle....all it takes is one person being hateful to change the mood of the whole staff....

    poor computers or phone lines on the credit card machines....we had a total credit card machine failure at a time when we needed to just be processing credit cards...i had one man scream at me....that i would do anything to keep him from skiing....strange..but that was a customer...

    anytime equipment fails you are just screwed to the wall...there is no quick way to process that many cards the old way now. hell the younger staff memebers act like an imprinter is a fossil...they brought it to me....asking..."do you know what this is" i had to show them how we use to imprint cards and use the phone to call the transactions in....they were amazed

    Happily, none of these affect me. I'm glad I don't have these 'co-worker' people.

    Nothing pushes my buttons anymore. I don't sweat it.

    I have co-workers that get upset because the boss spends all day on the computer and nothing gets done in a timely manner.

    One time one guy in my shop got upset because another turned him in for one of his rants. I think the guy is Bi-polar. It's just something that happens every once in awhile...the f-bombs start flying and he storms out of the meeting. It's a common occurrence.

    When we eat lunch one guy on one side of me keeps asking me if I'm gonna eat that. The other guy on the other side starts whining when somebody text msgs me during lunch.

    I don't have any buttons to push right now but some of my co-workers do obviously.

    Ha ha. I went to 7-11 once and their cash registers were down. They wouldn't sell anything even with exact change. They didn't understand the concept of WRITING it down.

    I spend 90 percent of my day with teens who complain constantly. But my advice to my younger co-workers is "Don't sweat the small stuff". There's plenty of "big stuff" to worry about. They may as well not put themselves in an early grave.

    Ah Its Monday. I wonder if we'll have heat today. Lol

    Advice to new moms; No one needs to hear about poopy diapers and spit up at lunch.

    Advice to new teachers; the copier breaks weekly. Get over it and have a Plan B.

    Let's see, a boss who reminds me of a 300-pound bitter man-hating female version of Monk with Tourettes - and a coworker I have to work with closely who's even worse and also her sister. I've had some lousy jobs before, but there's nothing worse than working for and with a cabal of controlling broomriding bitches. Anybody got a job opening? :lol:
