Handshake, fist bump, elbow tap, other? What's your jive?

When I was a cashier, we made up handshakes for when you answered a customers question - no matter how small.
#WouldYouRather shake hands, elbow tap, bow, something else? #aboutmyjob #watercooler

I was so pissed I walked out in the middle of the interview...

I wanted to slap the interviewer, but instead I just politely said "sorry, this isn't the place for me" and walked out.

I interviewed for a retail management position (AT A SPORTS STORE) and when it was time to talk about my work experience he interrupted me and said "personal training isn't real experience, tell me about your real jobs."

EXCUSE ME but how the HELL is personal training not a "real job"?!?!?!!

We are certified industry professionals who work closely with clients to transform their body and lifestyle!!! It's hard work!

Did I overreact???

My boss is pressuring me and I'm conflicted as hell.

So here's the problem. I work as a bartender and have for years. I've been at my current job for 4 years and my boss REALLY wants me to be a manager. I appreciate that he has faith in me and my ability to be a good leader, but I don't know that I want to be a manager.

I know it'll be good for my career development but I really enjoy being a bartender. But he's been asking me every single shift....

Advice? Thoughts?

One interviewer asked me what was my favorite book. I paused and thought wtf did this have to do with the position or my qualifications. I politely answered Great Expectations by Dickens and the mf acted like he never heard of the book. Wished I never had answered that dumb question.

3 bizarre work from home jobs

I found this list of strange #workfromhome jobs that people actually work. Would YOU work any of these jobs?!

  1. Fortune cookie slip writer
    With 3 billion fortune cookies made annually, this job is a great option for creative, inspiring and philosophical minds.

  2. Gumologist
    Enjoy chomping gum? Being a gum tester could be the perfect job for you! The only thing you need is the ability to distinguish between various flavors and write down your thoughts.

  3. Apology expert
    For some people, apologizing can be tough! Finding the right words can cause a lot of stress and anxiety. As an apology expert, you will send a formal apology on the behalf of others.

Your at ur desk all day, but u have 3 spreadsheets to list what u do as u do it and the length of time it took u to do it.. THREE.. doing this keeps u from actually doing ur job. At home sick n they ask u every day “r u working from home “.. SICK, then have the nerve to ask “why did u only work 5 hours today”. When u return to the office, they ignore u..completely. We’re all adults, not in grade school. And these are “professionals”? Not really.
