When I was in the Military Chief S was in charge of our section. He'd been a medic on many black ops in Nam and had grown vocally disgruntled with his lot in the military.His unguarded protestations reached the wrong ears and while we were scrounging around an empty ward one night we found Chief S. in the dark with his throat slit from ear to ear.It was called a suicide, and my friend that reported it was discovered to have drug laced bloody syringes under his rack. He was dishonorably discharged.

lol, do you work at Walmart?

This is like the norm there, I've been working there for about 3 months and when you need to get work done, it comes down to tracking down the nearest cart, pallet jack or whatever else you need and taking it. Of course, that's slightly overblown, if the first cart you see is being loaded by someone else, you can't very well hi-jack it, but we often end up "searching" other departments for carts and pallet jacks when we need them.

It's not unusual to get tools lifted from your workspace when you turn around either, today I left a cart inside our cooler (I work in the Meat Dept) with a few boxes on it, when I got back, someone had unloaded the boxes and taken the cart.

Anyways, the nearest incident I can recall was a few days ago, I was going on with my work and I suddenly hear the raised voice of the Grocery Dept Supervisor, I wasn't paying attention, so I'm unsure what he said, but it must have been work related and I heard the other guy reply "Don't yell at me". I couldn't tell if it was a serious exchange or not, I just went on about my way, but it's kinda stuck with me because I've already heard from another guy working in the same department that their supervisor had it against him and he'd had trouble with the guy because he'd wanted him to do an insane amount of work that he couldn't possibly get done.

I was an electrician at the time. I've since quit and am currently unemployed. I worked at a Monstanto corn-husking plant in Remington, Indiana for a month, and a little over a week at a FedEx near Raleigh, North Carolina. At both locations, I was working alongside the guy I mentioned. He's been an electrician for almost two years, but green-horn me showed up and he started acting like he didn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. By the end of my first week in Remington, people were swearing up and down that he was the green sparky, not I. He would've been run off, but there wasn't any electricians to spare, and his welding skills were valuable.

I worked at a company that was making a machine to reduce risk of a nuclear meltdown for another company. I took over the project when the temporary engineer left and determined that there was a flaw that required a 60% rework of the machine. Boss told me that all the money was spent and we were not going to rework the project but lie to the company so we could get paid. I quit

when I was training to be a high school teacher, the teacher who was supervising me was making me writing a false accusation claim about a misbehaving student... like exaggerating the bad behaviour.


It was so unethical, and I couldn't do anything about it because I didn't have a voice, it's like you're a newcomer to a workplace and even if you say something, NOTHING will happen because nobody's going to believe a "new" staff over someone who has worked there for 10 years.

So it was such a toxic experience for me; I grew up believing that teachers are supposed to be people we look up to and can feel safe around.


But being in the staff room made me feel really uncomfortable; they were calling their own students "idiots" and so unfocused on making creative assignments. I didn't study teaching to be put in a place like this.



Anyway, it wasn't just that one place, there are many other schools that are like that. To the point where I feel like for every 1 decent teacher, there are 3 indecent ones... and it makes me feel really uncomfortable. And by indecent, I mean people who don't even enjoy being a teacher, making lesson plans or enjoy the company of children...



Dear lord, that really sucks.Makes me wonder what the teachers in my school talks about in the staff room.
