I don’t know if you’ve seen AngryJournalist.com, but it’s been making the rounds on the interwebs this week, and I gotta say, I get a kick out of it. It’s like Post Secret in reverse: a place for journalists to vent their frustrations about their jobs and their industry.
You get pithy anonymous comments like this:
Angry Journalist #145:
I am upset coz Vista crashed my laptop and all my data is gone.
Angry Journalist #396:
Instead of firing the middle manager twat who was uselessly occupying space, they made him my boss.
Angry Journalist #142:
I’m angry because the only other viable option is apathy.
I’ll give you a few more of my favorite vents after the break, but this gave me a great idea.
Let’s try this ourselves.
We could, as an experiment, treat this post as an open thread. Go to the comments and tell me who or what pissed you off today. Tell me about your dumb boss, your dumb co-workers, or your dumb office. Maybe you’re just pissed cause it’s Thursday and the weekend is so close you can taste it.
Please no real names, even company names.
So, click through, go to the comments, and tell us all why you’re pissed.
It beats shouting out the window.

I hate that my ex-girlfriend is more successful than I am. I hate every single time I read the newspaper and see her byline. I hate it because I wish I would never have to hear anything to do with her ever again, and because I know that in my goodwell I may have helped — even if
indirectly — to get that job.
What’s worse, it worries me she may actually be more talented than I am.
Angry Journalist #184:
I’m angry because the dipshits at work all think that they are the center of the motherfucking universe. I don’t care if you don’t like me, that’s not your fucking job. Just write stories and shut the fuck up.
