15 Reasons Your Coworkers Are The Worst

15 Reasons Your Coworkers Are The Worst

You thought your college roommate was bad? Multiply that by 10.

Many people are blessed with awesome coworkers, but some people aren't so lucky. Even if you love the people you work with, chances are they do things that grind your gears more than you'd care to admit. With all of the clashing personalities that come together in your office space, is it any wonder you want a drink after you get home from work?

1. They come in late every day, yet never get in trouble for it.

But God forbid traffic makes you five minutes late twice a year - you will NEVER hear the end of it.

2. They heat up stinky food and it lingers in the air all day long.

I know last night's shrimp scampi was SUPER delicious yesterday, but reheating garlic-laden seafood is, like, the biggest no-no in the history of work etiquette ever.

3. They talk really loudly on the phone, whether it's a business or personal call.

And then they laugh. And laugh. And laugh. Nothing's that funny!

4. They don't say "bless you" when you sneeze, or "thank you" when you say it to them.

Regardless of your religious beliefs, it's just common courtesy to acknowledge someone sneezing in the office. And it's common respect to say thanks when they acknowledge yours.

5. They don't say hello to you in the morning.

Well fuck me, right?

6. They leave the kitchen counter a mess.

You're not at home. I'm not your mom. Did you spill the thing? Your lunch left crumbs? Wipe it up with a paper towel like an adult.

7. They keep their rotting food in the fridge.

Either you have the weakest sense of smell EVER, or you really don't give a fuck that the fridge smells like week-old egg salad and rotting meat.

8. They leave the toilet seat up.

Dudes, this one's ALL on you. ~quit being selfish~

9. They don't replace the toilet paper roll when it's finished.

It is literally in a cabinet. In the bathroom. Where you're sitting. Staring at the cabinet. Using the bathroom. Argh!

10. They leave the front door unlocked when they close the office for the night.

Now, I'm not saying a murderer is going to camp out in our office and kill me when I open up tomorrow morning, but I'm also not *not* saying that.

11. They take extended lunch or coffee breaks while leaving you to pick up the slack.

I'm pretty sure you don't get a breakfast break, a coffee break, a lunch break, and a snack break, but okay sure, see you in 20 minutes! Again.

12. They use your condiments without asking permission.

I get it, coffee tastes better with cream, but could you at least ask before using half of my bottle?

13. They don't contribute to company-wide potlucks or luncheons.

I know you make more money than me, but somehow you can't even afford to contribute a $5 box of cookies from Jewel? I see you can afford to eat the appetizers I made, though... *sips tea*

14. They never respond to emails even though you know they're on their computer screwing around.

The email tab is literally sitting open on the side of your screen. We get pop-up notifications that an email has come through. Just click respond, damn it!

15. They leave early to "work from home," but in reality you know they're done for the day.

Because so are you.

To The Parent Who Chose Addiction

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.


When I was younger I resented you, I hated every ounce of you, and I used to question why God would give me a parent like you. Not now. Now I see the beauty and the blessings behind having an addict for a parent. If you're reading this, it isn't meant to hurt you, but rather to thank you.

Thank you for choosing your addiction over me.

Throughout my life, you have always chosen the addiction over my programs, my swim meets or even a simple movie night. You joke about it now or act as if I never questioned if you would wake up the next morning from your pill and alcohol-induced sleep, but I thank you for this. I thank you because I gained a relationship with God. The amount of time I spent praying for you strengthened our relationship in ways I could never explain.

SEE ALSO: They're Not Junkies, You're Just Uneducated

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

The amount of hurt and disappointment our family has gone through has brought us closer together. I have a relationship with Nanny and Pop that would never be as strong as it is today if you had been in the picture from day one. That in itself is a blessing.

Thank you for showing me how to love.

From your absence, I have learned how to love unconditionally. I want you to know that even though you weren't here, I love you most of all. No matter the amount of heartbreak, tears, and pain I've felt, you will always be my greatest love.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for leaving and for showing me how to be independent. From you, I have learned that I do not need anyone else to prove to me that I am worthy of being loved. From you, I have learned that life is always hard, but you shouldn't give into the things that make you feel good for a short while, but should search for the real happiness in life.

Most of all, thank you for showing me how to turn my hurt into motivation.

I have learned that the cycle of addiction is not something that will continue into my life. You have hurt me more than anyone, but through that hurt, I have pushed myself to become the best version of myself.

Thank you for choosing the addiction over me because you've made me stronger, wiser, and loving than I ever could've been before.

My Strange Obsession: Bibibop Addition

I am obsessed with Bibibop.


I am obsessed with Bibibop.

Sounds strange, right? But it's true.

For those of you who have never had the opportunity to experience Bibibop, Bibibop is an Asian Grill set up similar to Chipotle. You're able to go down the line of food, choosing a base (always go with the purple rice), hot toppings (they all slap), protein (the tofu is to die for), some cold toppings (a great way to try kale for the first time), and a sauce (if you don't get the Yum Yum sauce, you're weird.)

And, let me tell you, the final product is always delicious.

I hadn't been introduced to Bibibop until this past year, but once I tried it for the first time, I never looked back. Now I am constantly craving the taste of the Yum Yum sauce. I usually hit up Bibibop once every two weeks, but if I was rich, I would probably eat it every other day.

Though, admittedly, the prices are pretty good. And they celebrate meatless Mondays with 20% off to anyone who doesn't get meat in their bowl.

Plus, it's pretty healthy. Unlike most restaurants, like Chipotle, where your somewhat healthy meal can instantly become bad for you with the addition of something on the menu, Bibibop's entire menu provides nutritional value and offers gluten-free and vegan options.

Basically, Bibibop is the most underrated and most delicious restaurant in the world, which is why my obsession with it runs so deep. Although I would usually admit that obsessions are unhealthy, I think this one might be okay.
