Bought My Own Sponge

Really sick of the guys being such disgusting slobs. More specifically, I’m sick of them never replacing the paper towels, the dish soap and worst of all never buying new sponges. That’s why I took matters into my own hands and bought myself a sponge of my own. This sponge will be for my use only and I’ll keep it in a plastic bag in my closet so neither Blake nor Adam can use it and get it all dirty and gross like the sponge that’s been in our kitchen for the last 4 months.

See a problem here?
Maybe this is just the stress talking again, but WHAT IS THE DEAL with people eating oatmeal in an office break room, and not RINSING THE FUCKING BOWL!?!
I’ve run through a list of what this particular selfish slob could have been thinking, and there’s not a sensible excuse in the bunch—
"Oh, the girl’ll get it." - Sure, that may have flown up to 1980, but women are an equal part of our workforce now.  We need to accept this.
"Not my job." - Oh, no, of course not, YOU JUST WORK HERE.
"I’ll get it later." - The oatmeal’ll be CAKED ON by then.  Hell, most of it already is.  Why not just rinse it out, throw it in the dishwasher when you’re done tying the feedbag to your face?  You’re lazy enough to make the instant instead of the far-superior plain oats option, so don’t stand on your time-saving soapbox on my accord.  Asshole.
Is it too much to ask for a little responsibility around here?  Is it too much to request the same courtesy I give my coworkers?  I guess it is.  I guess I’m just the one who has the problem.  Why, because I live by a simple mantra that makes the world go round…
If it’s worth doing?  It’s worth doing RIGHT.

I think this can be said for a lot of people.  Do you stand by your actions, or do you gloss over them?  
My Dad says, “You can’t make a withdrawal if you haven’t made a deposit.”  Accountability.  It’s what separates us from the animals, and low-lifes.

Accidentally Bought A Woman’s Sweater

Swung by Dillard’s to browse some of the sale items and picked up what I thought was a pretty awesome sweater. Turns out it’s not for men. I just figured Preston & York was some new brand that I hadn’t heard of. Not sure why the clerk didn’t alert me to this when I was paying for it or why it was mixed in with the men’s clothes. Now I’m stuck with it since apparently there are no returns on sale items. Maybe I’ll just wear it and hope nobody notices.

Hey, Sorry

Maybe that last post was too harsh.  

I’m just, under a lot of stress lately, sales aren’t at an all time high, we have these big Thanksgiving plans… it’s lonely at the top.  Only a few of you will come to learn what that truly means, but for those of you who never will… I’m sorry if I was too harsh on you for your simple mistakes.

I’ll try to come from a point of understanding of your situation next time; and no, I won’t delete the post, because you can’t erase history; but you can learn from it.

But don't you think you should just ignore the random blogger instead of out smarting them and making them look stupid? I'm just saying for someone they look up to your coming off like a huge dick. Constructive criticism is one thing but insulting is another. - Disappointed fan

"…your coming off like a huge dick."

YOU ARE (or even YOU’RE) coming off like a huge dick.  C’mon.  

You almost had me until you slopped your way through such a simple typo.  People only have the words you write to judge you, and trust me, judge you they will.
