I’m Mad As Hell… And I’m Going To Vent About It

I don’t know if you’ve seen, 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.

Angry Journalist #193:

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.

    I’m pissed because I have to go pick up my boss’ brother from the airport. I don’t know when it happened, but I’ve somehow evolved into my boss’ unpaid personal assistant.

    I work with a real Kelly Kapor from the office. The young woman in the desk next to mine. The first 3 times she and her boyfriend broke up was cute. But I swear, today is the 7th time. I can’t stand to hear it anymore. Does that make me mean?

  • SoCA

    Who would have thought that trying to ACT BUSY could be more difficult than actually BEING BUSY. I swear, if this firm doesn’t get a new contract soon, I might quit before they have a chance to lay me off.

    One word: Winter!

    I guess most of you guys work inside in offices. Imagine working in St. Paul and having to make deliveries 6 times a day!

  • Anna O

    ..because there are 7 people total in my entire office and 6 of them called out sick today.

    One thing I hate is when someone asks you to do something via e-mail, then 2 minutes later, they call you to ask you to do the same thing.

    Drives me nuts!

    I was laid off in April. I have been sending resumes out like crazy. LOTS. A couple of stupid ass interviews. My bitch is that none of my resumes get in the hands of the employer. They are all channeling through these stupid ass recruiters some punk kid deciding if I am good enough to do the job. Seems I’d be better off knocking on doors. Anyone know how to go direct w/out calling companies to get
    the e-mail? Thanks- Licker 19

  • mad as hell

    Im mad because my so called best friend is a stupid, manipulative, two faced BITCH!!! She is secretly jealous of me because im trying to suceed in life and she always tries to make me feel bad. I cant fucking stand her ass. Im just to nice to fuckin tell her I dont like her anymore. She a stupid fuckin bitch.

  • Amused

    To the girl above me ranting (Has to be a female): I deal with you and your friend on a daily basis at my job. I get to hear all about your problems with her and her problems with you on a daily basis. Instead of bottling in the anger just stop associating with her. Can’t tell you how many cat fights I have to sit through on a daily basis over the dumbest topics. Sorry to sound so sexist but seriously, why do so many women insist on fighting over petty nonsense???
