when your job makes you cry

i never thought i would cry at work but i did.
when i worked in fashion

I’d see white vixens running to the bathroom next to my desk in tears.

…and i told myself that would never be me.
fast forward a few years later!
many of us can relate to being broken down at work.
some of our jobs can be real abusive and we don’t talk about it enough.
i watched a video with a wolf breaking down on his break.
he didn’t even want to go back

“we aren’t supposed to live like this”.
we aren’t but we are forced to.
i don’t understand why we have to put in long hours,
be abused by our bosses,
deal with fake ass co-workers,
and when it comes time to be recognized for the hard work we have put in:

…for some fuckin’ reeses pieces and a starbucks gift card.


Have you ever cried at work?

  1. I applaud Beyoncé because that new track, you won’t break my soul should be everybody’s anthem at a bad job. You are not about to treat me like shit and turn around and give me a movie ticket, bag of reese pieces, 2 rolls of life savers, two pens, and some fucking keychains… for 27 years of service! You couldn’t offer stock options? You couldn’t offer a salary position. I don’t allow for any boss to raise their voice at me because one, they are not my parent and my parents don’t raise their voice at me. I will tell them in a minute, “don’t buck cause if I knuck, we gon have a problem!”

  2. Yes I cried at work before. Only once. It was because my boss kept telling me I didn’t do something even though I did. He just wanted it to be perfect and that just wasn’t possible. I went to the bathroom and cried.

    I only cried because it had been a few years since I stopped interacting with my asshole of a cousin so I had become soft to confrontation.

If you wouldn't say it on live TV with all your family and friends watching, without getting canceled or locked up, don't say it on here. Stay on topic, no SPAM, and keep it respectful. Thanks!
