Tuesday Expert Advice

Dear Cupcake,

I recently received an officially suspicious email announcing that I had been NOMINATED FOR INCLUSION IN THE PROFESSIONAL WHO’S WHO HALL OF FAME and I was wondering if you knew if I was being honored for that time my boss told me I was NOT getting a full raise because I was Concerned with being too fair OR if I’m getting an award for that time I ACTUALLY CRIED like Oliver Twist in front of the new CEO who had the moral constitution of a sociopathic octopus?

    I’ve cried more times at work in the first two months of 2012 than I have in a decade of PMS weeks. I’m waiting for Guinness World Records to call so I can be the champ of Weeping Workers.

    It would be more acceptable to go in to work and take a big poop in the middle of a meeting. But I stand by my little cry fest. Being marginalized, lied to and manipulated makes me cry. Sue me.

  3. My hands were shaking the last time I picked up a phone call from my boss.
    Shaking like a little baby b*tch.

    Now I feel doubly grateful for the boss I have.

  5. Favorite line from my last boss: “It’s really quite simple Meg, you hire the people, and then they do the work”. Umm, OK? When those people work in another part of the country. and I can’t even meet them or talk in the same time zone, then I consider that a slight issue. Sobbing.
