This guy constantly moans about management and his co workers. Perhaps he should look a little closer to home tbh.
I'll constantly threaten you nearly every day and turn people against you and then blame you for complaining I'm sure you would cope really well. This is a thread about work colleagues why are you so surprised if someone is moaning about it?
I've suffered anxiety PTSD and depression because of it. If you don't believe that people can be evil then you're pretty naive. I've worked in several workplaces and never been disciplined or spoken to ever.
I did nothing wrong to warrant being abused other than working hard and doing my job.
If someone got shot twice do you say they must be doing something to deserve it? Some of my language and tarring all with the same brush may appear extreme but please try googling workplace mobbing or narcissistic leadership and try and learn about something you know nothing about.

Regarding alkies you have worked with, I was going to recount my ex colleague Neil but the thread is in gold so here is the Neil post.


Another favourite was Neil, a guy I worked with after getting a promotion of sorts. Neil was an older guy, most of the people there were in their early 20's. He was about 45 and when I first joined the team he was pretty quiet but he was always keen on a night out. This was because he had a drink problem. He wouldn't drink all the time but if he got started he didn't finish for days/weeks/months. He took a holiday once and didn't come back to work for four or five months. The company couldn't contact him and after a month or so sentthe police round to check he wasn't dead. He admitted he had 'a problem' and was allowed back. That's when the fun really began.
When he came back he was quite different, he was obviously on medication to control his urges towards drinking and it turned him into a walking comedy sketch. He would jive across the office, call everyone man and constantly, I mean constantly, hum to himself. I used to sit next to him and it was like sitting next to a radio constantly tuned to Jazz FM. "Dooo bee doo doo doo bap doo wop doo waaaah" for every second of the 8 hour shift. He would also talk/sing to himself about what he was doing, as Swampy remembers. So if it was his week doing the morning reports you'd get "doo bee doo be dobeee, ahh'mmm doooooin the morning report, doop doo dee waaah".
Eventually he'd take things that were said or mentioned and work them into his routine. So if someone said "Who's coming fro lunch? I fancy a sandwich" you'd get about 30 seconds later "Lunchy lunchy woo beee doooo". This was noticed and we'd deliberately mentioning things completely out of context to get them into his songs. One notable occasion was when a mate of mine stood up apropos of nothing and said very loudly "GLOVES" and sat down. Thirty seconds later "gloves, wooo hoo dop yeah, gloves yeahh"
Neil eventually left, the company gave him an ace reference to get rid of him. On one of his drinking benders (which continued despite his treatment) he saw our line manager shopping with his wife and kids and followed him around Tesco shouting abuse, probably like thisL "dooo bee doo deee doo you are a c**toooo".

My workshy colleague who I’ve post d about on here before is getting worse and worse. We’ve had a few staff members away on holiday the last two weeks so we’ve all had t pick up the slack and he is a dead weight in the team, utterly useless. He arranges meetings so he can try and palm off work to other people, when we have to give progress reports on work and investigations he just can’t do it, it’s embarrassing. We were in a call where was required to give everyone an update on some work and he had pasted information from an email and that was it. When asked for anything he just said “I don’t know”, offered nothing. Eventually a colleague and myself just said we will pick it up and took over the investigation he was doing.

He’s also a utter dick about things, demanding and needy and completely tin eared about how people are feeling. He will try and have a laugh with people who are clearly really busy and needing left in peace. He has claimed to management he is having personal problems but I think he’s making it up to get some slack.

Sorry to appear complaining but just calling it like I see it. Maybe it's from working in factories where management are a bit more full on than in an office.

Have seen really evil things where it seems like they are enjoying harming people.

I don't trust management anymore as a result.

This is a highly ignorant opinion. The Red Dragon Centre has one of the smoothest parking validation set-ups I've ever come across. 

One of the grabber machines at Barry Island is pretty good too. 

If I think of anything else I'll let you know.

Update to Peanutbuttergate. After tellling her how much I hated peanut butter, she then turned up the same day with toast and marmalade (still without a plate and brushing crumbs away). Think I'll stop picking her up.

people who are given a set time to be ready for and continuously fail to be ready at said time are the worst kind of scum.

There was was a group of guys from Perth travelling to stirling in a car share setup years ago who would take turns a week picking each other up. The oldest chap was a real old fashioned boy who wouldn't be a second late for work and if the boys weren't standing outside their house would just whizz past not even slowing down. It also meant that when the old lad stayed late the others all had to as well. They never spoke to each other in work so I imagine the drives were just awful.

Pretending to be useless and having everyone else run around covering for him? He should be running courses on how to work like a boss IMO.

Or, more likely, make a pig's ear of running a course, then getting you to do it for him  :P

You must realise that throwing a blanket over all managers based on one persons experience is a bit silly though?

It'd be like saying you don't trust all Muslims because a few of them have blown themselves up before.

Aye,  but having spent 23+ years in HR (Yes, OK...OK...)  and all of that in manufacturing and  at the shitty end of manufacturing too, I can honestly say that I came across way more unreasonable employees than I did unreasonable managers.  I'm not saying all managers are good and all others are bad, that would be a ridiculous generalisation to make, wouldn't it?

As a proportion, or absolute numbers? There are presumably far more employees than there are managers so it's natural more unreasonable people would be shop floor.

Yes, that is fair comment.  It's merely an observation based on my personal experience.   I'd even go as far as to say unreasonable people tend not to get promoted (I'm full prepared to take stick for this last comment!)

Was talking with a couple of work mates at lunch there as I'd had my first wet shave in about 5 years over the weekend. One of them cracks up that when he shaves (using a beard trimmer type thing) he goes outside. Myself and the other workmate looking rather baffled, we ask why? He says that it's easier to get rid of the hair. We then asked him to walk us through his process, and thus, I give you;
 

1. Puts on his dedicated "shaving jacket" which is apparently good for keeping the hair shavings off of his clothes.

2. Goes out into his back garden with his beard trimmer in one hand and a small mirror in the other.

3. Completes his shave and removes is shaving jacket, which he then shakes in the garden to rid it of any loose hair.

We genuinely thought he was at the wind up, but no, this is actually how he shaves. Not only that, but he was amazed that we thought this was so ridiculous, and it seemed he thought everyone must shave outside. The thought of him standing in his back garden with a shitty kagool wrapped around him, frantically shaving his unkempt beard, whilst his next door neighbour quickly hangs out the washing before returning to his house to tell his wife about the weird kagool wearing outside shaver that lives next door, has fair brightened up my day.

Any members of P&B match that madness for a shaving process?

I’m not quite as bad as that- I don’t have a special shaving jacket- but I do trim my pubes in the back garden, or I did, the register forbids me from doing it now.....
