Toxic bosses, office romances and garage makeovers

I love the quote from Laura Mayes. It applies to my life so far this year

Life is so… Lifey.

Let me save you from these melodramatic posts as I work through my midlife existential meh. In the meantime, I share writing that might actually help your life.

Bad Bosses

Over at Women and Co., I worked very hard not to share my own experiences with my own toxic boss. Oh, man, that guy was a jerk. Instead of ranting about his jerkiness, I channeled that rage into some measured help for your own new maybe-toxic boss.

Date Smarter at Work

Here, at the super-helpful Women and Co. site, I encourage you to date your co-worker. I encourage you to do it the smart way.

Definitely avoid dating up or down the chain. Having a romance with your boss or your employee can be grounds for harassment charges, as the perception that the relationship isn’t equal puts the company at a greater risk. More >

Garage Makeover

On the fantastic Go Mighty site, I share photos and updates about our Entertaining Library.

Here’s to channeling all our capital F Feelings into the good stuff.

Hooray for replies!
