There is nothing more annoying than someone at work remarking on your comings and goings. Why does it matter to you that I just got to work? I don’t report to you and we don’t even work on the same team!  For you information, I’m suffering from severe allergies and not only do I get to work late I still get more done that my team. 

You on the other hand, since we started together had been late on our first day, had a terrible attitude and are wholly unsuitable for the role you’re  in - mind your business! 

Being Voluntold

One thing about the world of work is you’re frequently in a position where you have to do work that you’re not passionate or interested in. However, there are times when you’re given work in the form of a compliment to your skill or a training opportunity that you’re being told to do even when it has nothing to do with you. I’ve dubbed this being voluntold. This is where your boss needs something done that they don’t want to do and has delegated it to you. This happened to me last fall where I was asked to build a website for our team *sigh*. I was pretty annoyed and spent 3 months grumbling about it.

Have you been voluntold lately? If so, on a scale of 1 to 10 how much did you hate it (lol)
