If a colleague passes their work onto you for some
reason, just do it poorly to ensure they never pass it
on again. Or, if you can’t work out how to use the
photocopier, destroy it.
Those are just two suggestions found in “WTF?
Work: How to Survive 101 of the Office's Worst
F*#!-ing Situations," a new book that offers tongue-
in-cheek careers advice.
From oversleeping and missing a job interview to
being fired for no reason, job woes are now a great
source of humour, say authors Gregory Bergman
and Jodi Miller.
Their book addresses workplace scenarios, from
dumbing down a resume to getting a menial job, to
what do if the receptionist hates you for no good
“People are in need of a good laugh, and they
enjoy listening to stuff that has to do with jobs and
lack of jobs," said Miller. "Misery loves company."
Other advice from the book includes:
• If you're job hunting and realise you had sex with
the job interviewer and never called her back, tell
her you liked her so much you were afraid of
• If someone keeps taking your stapler, booby-trap
it with explosives or glue it to the desk.
• If the boss keeps calling you by the wrong name,
change your name to match the one he is using.
