So I'm sure that most of us have those days at work that you just want to punch a co-worker in the face and walk out....then the reality hits us that we have bills to pay. some of use have kids. i have those days a lot. i just want to scream and wake up from this nightmare i call my life. how did i get here? why am i here? how can i get out? a lot of my stress comes from work. i'm not a difficult person to get along with but i expect teamwork and when i don't get it i get frustrated. I have a co-worker that when she doesn't get her way she just won't talk to anybody. i mean literally. how is that professional?? so tell me myLOTTERS!! have you had any bad experiences at work? what were they? or do you just have a co-worker that you want to shake the belly button lint out of?? share please! i have plenty but i need a good laugh so share with me!

I felt exactly like you; however, I was frustrated with my manager. He would walk around the office (when he wasn't playing golf or getting his eyebrows waxed) laughing and gloating about how he didn't have to do anything because he had people like me that would do whatever he needed. It made me sick. After three years, my office manager and I finally got so fed up with the manager, we just walked out. That was the greatest feeling ever. I have now started a new job that I love very much. So far I get along with everyone there, but I'm sure that one person will come along... Keep your chin up and good luck!
