Cyber Monday is that one day a year where all the little lies you’ve been telling your boss are finally used two fold, and you realize that although your job technically involves other responsiblities, you, after so many years being under the thumb of a tyrant, fully understanding that fuck, yeah, you’re a goddamn master at pulling the wool over your boss’ eyes.

“I enjoy shopping, but I’m constantly feeling like as hard as I try, I don’t look polished enough. Nothing feels better than looking good, but style is not innate to me.” Really? Nothing feels better? More
A teenage student of mine has a problem – she is involved in the worst unpaid internship in the world. More
Sometimes, people do things that are not technically “ethical” to get ahead in the workplace. Does that make them sociopaths? Or fun, cool people it would be interesting to talk to? Take this case: More
After readingJen Dziura’s fantastic piece on Productivity Unicorns, (an improvement on productivity ninjas) I started thinking about legendary creatures that inspire our work personas. Those are all very well, but for sheer effectiveness in reaching their goals, I don’t think anything can beat a zombie. Obviously.

It’s happened more times than I can remember: you walk into the office in your cute new purple blouse only to see that five of your coworkers inexplicably also decided to wear purple that day. Just like women who work together sometimes end up with synced menstrual cycles, some of them also end up dressing alike without any planning or coordination. The Morris + King Company, a public relations firm in New York City, noticed lots of coworker dress-alike incidents. That inspired two of their employees, account supervisors Katie Smith-Adair and Jen , to start a blog called Did You Get the Memo? On the blog, they post pictures of coworkers with similar outfits, from plaid shirts to striped ties. We spoke to Jen and Katie about how their work project became a full-on obsession. More
I have been fired twice, although the second one might not count. The first time was when I had a summer job at Gap Kids in high school. I let one of my friends use my discount and got busted. More
Office Secret Santa gifts are often as stressful as putting together a presentation for your boss – you don’t want to get somebody a gift they’ll hate, but you usually end up pulling the name of the new girl in marketing who you don’t know anything about. Might we offer some suggestions? More
Did you have a shitty first job (or second or third job)? I definitely did. I worked for Mandee, a cheap, semi-crappy, clothing store for teens. I got the job right before I started my senior year of high school, … More
