When Was the Last Time You Got Upset at Work?

No matter your profession, your workday has the potential to be a land mine of conflict. A disagreement with a co-worker, a run-in with your boss, or an angry call from a client can ruin your day, or even your week. It's important to keep track of situations that unnerve, and upset you so you don't get derailed and you learn how to defuse disasters. When was the last time you were genuinely upset at work and why?

I got really upset a few weeks ago when I was on a extremely tight deadline and the person who was in charge of giving me the data kept changing the numbers. Otherwise it has been a few years since I've been that pissed at work.

Hmm, Its been a while. I mean, I have gotten annoyed by little things in my current position, but nothing really bad. I hate getting upset/crying at work. I know that some women have trouble with it (like my coworker), but I haven't cried at work in 2 years. That would really undermine my credibility as a manager. After work. . .that is another story. :)

I was pretty busy and overwhelmed today but my best buddy went for a walk with me and let me vent. It was great. Felt better afterwards. Thanks to best buddies.

A couple months ago I got into a big argument with a defense attorney. I won't go into details but I barely made it back to my office before I burst into tears. My awesome co worker brought me a giant cupcake the next day to make me feel better :) I have cried at work a couple times, and I kinda hate myself for that, but whatever.. the first time was when I got word that my foster kitty died :(

The last time I was genuinely pissed off was about a month ago when the person who was supposed to label and put away the blood culture materials left 20 cases of them for ME to do the next day when I was extremely busy. She always tries pulling crap like that because she thinks she can get away with it and that day it just really burned me up.

I've been upset practically every day for the past two months, with the exception of my much-needed two-week vacation in Hawaii. I'm transitioning to a new department, but my old boss keeps asking me for help on her projects. It's really a bad breakup haha.

I am upset now but am waiting to talk to the boss about it once he gets back from a business trip. I can't think about it too much because it BURNS ME UP.
