Team leaders who try to take credit for your work and then fail miserably because they aren't able to explain the substance properly or are missing other relevant information that they never bothered to consult you for or you told them and they're too stupid to realize the importance of what you just described.

Actually, that's just a temporary annoyance followed by immense satisfaction when I see them fall on their face and I look like a hero picking up the pieces making the team lead look like an incompetent amateur.

Useless meetings, clients with entitlement issues, co-workers with entitlement issues, Monday morning meetings before 10am, and Friday meetings scheduled for anytime after 1pm.

I've seen this happen with a manager trying to steal a sale. She was sweating once she went blank with the answers. went on 2 more months, then quit to pursue a Colombian Vallenato singing career. Not sure how that worked out.

People who act like they've done a ton of work but haven't done shat. So proud of themselves and their "barely getting by" attitude.

Paychecks bouncing.

Right now I'm already owed $1K from 2 weeks ago, and today was payday. Another $1500 I didn't get a check for.

Not happy.

Not exactly sure what to do. All I have is the full tank of gas in my car right now.

It's a family members company, I'm thinking about knocking his teeth in though that wont help things any.

He also still owes me for the 1,600 miles I put on my car in a week. That's another $700 or so.

Well having him swallow his teeth probably won't due any good. Is it like a construction company?
