I’m just saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah busy

May 4, 2017 // 0 Comments

When did it happen? When did such a travesty against humankind take place? When did aioli replace tomato sauce as the go-to accompanying condiment for hot chips? I know there are probably heaps of pro-aioli people shaking their heads in disappointment at the lack of complexity in my condiment choice. But hey! I’m a simple person. And I fucking [...]

The 4 types of ‘Horrible Employees’

March 1, 2017 // 1 Comment

For all these years of my corporate life, I’ve complained, then I’ve moaned, then I’ve whinged, then I’ve sighed, then I’ve sarcastically learnt to deal with my issues with work by writing about them on a public blog like some corporate-martyr. I’ve always felt that it was ME who was getting the raw deal. That it was just me against [...]

I’m bored, I’m bored, I’m boredom boredom boredom

November 10, 2015 // 1 Comment

You know you’re bored at work when you spend an afternoon rejigging your To Do List and then write down “rejig to do list” on your To Do List and immediately cross it out to give you some sense of having achieved something. [as an aside, I’ve now managed to confuse myself as to whether I double space after a sentence ends or do I usually [...]

The Official Dictionary of Management Speak and Office Jargon

August 13, 2015 // 1 Comment

  Have you ever just wished for once, just once, you could know how loud you are when you blow your nose? Seriously, it’s like one of life’s little mysteries. You’ll never be able to know how obnoxious (or blissful????) your nose-blowing could sound. And for self-conscious people like myself, the lack of knowledge I have about my [...]

Using the mysterious power of silence to win arguments

May 6, 2015 // 1 Comment

I’ve always just assumed that I downright suck at conversation. It all started when I was five and whilst on the phone to my dad, my sister punched me in the arm whilst I was on the phone [for no reason at all…well no reason apart from the fact that I had made a hole in the wall which I promptly blamed on her] – ever since then, I’ve [...]

Where are all the mediocre women?

April 23, 2015 // 6 Comments

I feel like I’m lucky enough to be living in a renaissance for women in the workplace. Now there are millions of books, forums, active networking opportunities, dedicated to progressing women in various workplaces [notably some workplaces being more progressed than others….*erghm* every closed shop medical profession]. It’s awesome and I do [...]

December 12, 2014 // 0 Comments

I’m officially 3 for 2 – no that’s not the English Cricket Team’s average score over the last 6 months –I’m officially at my 3rd full-time job in 2 years. Yep, you know how at most workplaces, they give you a pen or cufflinks for being there for 5 years, to mark one’s loyalty to the business and commitment to [...]

How to be the perfect bell-curve shaped employee

August 26, 2014 // 3 Comments

So I wouldn’t really say I’m a “morning person”…whilst I’m not averse to the odd 7am rise [mostly due to an ongoing battle to this fucking annoying piece of shit magpie that loves to squawk to you know, warn me from taking it’s piece of shit-kicker baby magpies… “gee relax bro, I don’t you’re your baby magpies”]…truth [...]
