Monday Rant – What’s Your Gripe Today?

June 24, 2013 by Lady Unemployed

It’s back! I’ve been on a semi-hiatus lately, because of an increase of stress in my life and that has just taken up my focus and time.

Anyways, I’m bringing back Monday rant, so bring your weekly gripes and complaints to me and we will bitch and moan together.

I’m dreading this week a bit, because I’m supposed to be covering someone’s desk on Thursday and Friday. I keep having conversations with them and others on how much of a big deal it is and how overwhelmed I’ll probably feel those two days. I don’t like being set up for that exactly and it makes me want to pull away from the moment completely. Maybe I’ll get lucky and win the lottery this week and never have to go back.

I’d also like to ask if anyone wants to co-host Monday rant with me. Let me know in the comments or send me an email if you are open to it!

Anyways, what’s your rant this week? What are you dreading the most? Has your day started off on the wrong foot? Do you have long meetings ahead of you? Are you looking for work and you just are struggling with feeling hopeful?

Let’s share our gripes together!


  1. As an unemploymentista, writing from Australia, I can empathize with you regarding covering someone else’s desk/job. I’ve done many long-term and shorter term temping jobs in the past where colleagues would go on and on about someone elses big shoes that I had to fill and what a stupendously wonderful perfect person they were. You can only do your best, stay cool, and keep chocolate close by. In one role, I recall filling in for someone while they went on extended holidays in the UK. And even though I had stepped in to fill that role, and was more than capable, qualified etc, they persisted in micro-managing me via email from the UK. It became very strange. Good luck with it and hang on in there.
