    If you have a job, likely you have some work place drama. Especially if you're a black male working with females or gay men. Either people trying to get in your business or trying you. Well this is a thread you can vent some of that out.

    [​IMG]

    I will start off with out a lot of backstory for this incident. We are just gonna get right to it.

    The one female in my department is black and we don't really interact for... Reasons. I figured out a while ago when she realized I her eye batting and chick high pitched whining had no affect on me that she stopped really dealing with me. I like realness in the ladies I am around.

    Our company has had a lot of changes and there were a few people let go. I thought it would be cool to introduce a little pick me up where one person each month would bring in treats for the office. I pitched it to my cube bro and they were cool with it. I go over to, we'll call her "Sasha" 's desk. She had on headphones and I don't the she was fully understanding what I said but I asked her if she would be interested in this idea. She said yes. But to her understanding it was her thinking I was bringing in treats for the hell of it. Upon correcting her misunderstanding, she hesitantly said yes but under the condition she'd be last. Thinking in her head, I assume, she could put it off for a year. I said that's fine because I haven't posed this to the rest of the department yet and I can just put her at the end if we get enough interest. She thought about it for 5 seconds and then said that she'd rather not. Saying that her finances were not set up for that.

    :ravetho:

    Pause.

    I have been working here over a year longer than she so I know pretty much what she's bringing in. She's not poor like that where she can't find 25 bucks or so a year to bring in donuts or bagels one time.

    Play.

    So I say that's cool. And walk off to my desk.

    At this point I'm convinced that she's a mooch now more than than ever. It was all good before hand but if she didn't want to participate she didn't have to lie. I guess that was her trying to save face after she was initially all for this 30 seconds earlier. But still.... I am not a woman hater at all but chicks like this get on my nerves. She's always trying to get other people to bring shit in but not offering to do so herself.

    So now I'm just not gonna ask her about anything that involves office team chip money in because "oh! well you said your finances were not where you wanted them so..." just keeping it 100dap

    I just know if she reaches for donuts on my day, she's gonna get the petty stare of judgment.

    Also i am totally out of fucks at work so I couldn't care less about playing nice with the team. I don't plan on being in that department long and my bosses love me. :youngsabu:

    Last year I had problems because I kept to myself and they tried me to get to talk and participate in their convos, not so much. Today though, I was doing something on Franchise Content stuff and I thought it was annoying since I usually work on other thongs. I also hating working on Macs with a passion and I'm sitting there look at it..like, "Go Away."

    I saw some new recruits today...one of them had blonde hair....lights lights guy. I gave him the side eye...

    The “totally out of fucks” is what’s real.

    For the longest, HR and corporate culture taught go along to get along. In the end, coworkers don’t sign checks. Like you, I tried all those morale boosting, team exercises and shit; bringing snacks on my own dime, trying to help others with their (not very heavy) workload...then I said fuck it. As y’all know, I work with overpaid federal government shits who make WAY MORE than our civilian counterparts. Yet these bastards are always whiny and miserable as fuck. So after nearly ten years of trying to placate people who don’t have my drive, worth ethic, or alacrity, I just said fuck it and stopped talking to coworkers altogether.

    Now, I get more done, I’m more positive, and amazingly, I found I don’t even need to listen to music at my desk anymore. Silence truly is fucking golden (to paraphrase Rob Blagojevich lol). As long as the boss is happy, I’m happy. Remember, coworkers don’t sign checks, give bonuses, or promotions. Strive for positions where you can deal directly with management and be left alone. That team shit is so 20th Century. As Patty McCord stated, good workers want to be part of teams of peers with similar work values; good companies know to ditch weak motherfuckers so that high performers don’t suffer. I recommend her book to anyone that wants to be an adult in the workplace and leave sorry ass lame mofos behind.

    Well I think its common knowledge I can't stand many of my co-workers.

    I don't mix well with ghetto unprofessionalism in the work place.

    Update ... I think she's probably just salty because no one joined in on her potluck idea but most of the team is all for my idea. Matter of fact, it's starting tomorrow.

    I could have told her, had she asked, that

    1. Men are lazy. Most of us would rather outsource food versus cooking it (or having wives, side chicks boyfriends cook it), lug a dish in and bring it back home.

    2. Not everyone is the same on kitchen cleanliness and food handling safety.

    I just want to see her reach for one of these Krispy Kremes tomorrow.

    This. I’ve always just brought shit from Costco to these things. That way if anyone gets food poison, sue corporate America not me lol. I look at some coworker’s desk and I can imagine what their cooking and food cleaning rituals are (insert butt scratches and cigarettes here)...

    I had these two women try me one time. I was talking about a past relationship but making a very general statement and Chick A gone say, "oh, it was a girl?" like trying to insinuate otherwise. She like, "oh, my bad, I never heard you talk about girls." Ma nigga, I don't talk about anybody because I'm AT WORK....a couple days later, Chick B that's friends with A, randomly told me," hey I have a question." I had to run off but when I came back she was like nevermind. At the end of the shift, she gone hand me a piece a paper and tell me not to open it until I leave. I open it up and it says, "Hi, takeyourmeds"............like what bitch?

    They were purposely toying with me. What made it even worse was that it was the only two black chicks in the damn place. Everybody else minding they business except them. Chick A was like young 20's with a kid; B was in her fucking 40's with a teenage son and they were both ghetto and childish af.

    I stopped speaking to them after that. I don't have time for the games.

    This. Most of my complaints about working for the gummint is the low quality behavior of black women in these positions. Their work ethic, grammar, gossiping...even the ones with grad degrees. It’s tiring and embarrassing.

    And, of course, deez wemminks they’s all be sanctified by dee Lawd, boogity, boogity....




    And my stupid ass white Becky boss lets them get away with it. Of course, if I dare criticize their waste of taxpayer dollars, it’s “sexism” “misogynoir” or some other excuse for half-stepping...

    In corporate America, all the black women I worked with were Michelle Obama / Condoleeza Rice types, a couple of black female execs were bosses. It was good to work for and under black women who were intelligent and allow you to be your professional best. They need to take their ghetto sistren in the back room and school them ...

    DUUDE! I fell out laughing at ''oh, it was a girl?'' Lmao!
    At that point I would have just stopped, looked at my watch and said excuse me, then walked away.
    There is a Chinese wall between my work life and personal life, and with the way folks gossip at mines I would be a fool to say anything personal.

    Venting here because the thread exists, LOL.

    The unattractive older fem gay Black dude at my job throws playful shade left and right... until someone throws it back at him. Then suddenly the “jokes” are fighting words. SMH.

    [​IMG]

    Not to mention the constant fishing for details on my personal life...both in private and in front of the entire team.

    This isn’t the most unprofessional work place, but it def gets a nomination.

    Same gay dude told the Project Manager something I said to him privately about me getting extra last minute work due to a co-worker getting injured. The work isn’t that hard and normally I wouldn’t mind but I’ve been the guy they turn to for the “drop what you’re doing, we need you to stress out and finish this other thing ASAP” stuff at least 4 other times since I started this client.

    Now PM wants to have a “team meeting” at 7pm to clear up some things based on what was said to him. FUCK DIS SHIT! I’m leaving at 6:59pm on the dot.

    [​IMG]

    They don’t pay me enough for this office politics bullshit, LOL. I chose to be self employed for a reason. One more month, then thankfully I’m done!

    (For anyone that forgot, my day job is in media and advertising production).
