Lost my cool on a colleague after she scolded me for saying “good morning,” as it was presumptuous of me to assume her morning was good…
Of course since she was already a soulless hag, it had no impact on her.11
Coworker was adversarial from the get. He would always bully me by saying “You better do [BLANK]!” whenever we’d discuss tasks to be done. He eventually pushed my buttons too many times. I responded to his bullying tactic by yelling back, “IF I DON’T, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT!? Stop bullying me and let’s work TOGETHER on this!” I realize now he was fucking with my head.3
my temper has improved a lot, but around high school i had a really short fuse. we were doing a programming homework and i really blew up with this guy.
the day before the deadline i couldn't finish the work (that i was doing solo), because i had a violin recital. i told the other 3 to finish it, it was very simple stuff. i got at school the next day, they hadn't done what i asked, and this asshat meddled with what i had done, so i had to fix his changes to my code and implement what was left an hour before class. i really gave him a piece of my mind, i was super pissed, and my friends were super awkward because I'm usually a quiet person, and it's scary when i get angry for real.1
I never yell at co-workers but I did get yelled at quite a lot of times (2019 - pre covid).
I was leaving the office on time.
Just another reason I support people working from home.2
Web Ops Director: [looking at a screenshot of changes she had requested] This looks good. Oh by the way, revert that red color for heading text.
Me: I’m not reverting anything because there’s nothing for me to revert. I didn’t touch that text color. The website has always looked like that.
Director: [shocked pikachu face]3
I have never yelled at my co-workers in the office. I hate to work with some of them, but I don’t have to bastardise myself yelling at them. There’s always incompetence or ineptitude, but that doesn’t mean I have any right to be incoherently rude. I rather have them embarrass themselves than yell at them.
Even though some of them are an infinite arsehole. I believe that keeping my temperament as gentle as possibly can gain me some respect from my juniors.
Keeping your cool is a BOSS move AF.1
Well not yelled because we're all remote, at least I am from the rest of the team. But there was a new joiner, a she, but she needed a lot of hands holding even though I told her the gist of how things worked and what she needed to do...
She complained to my boss apparently that I was being mean and vague to her...
So that became a rant here... And other than that one time, my boss kept her away from me.
Just a Thought
We are not creating any feature
We are just directly implementing bug/error at first place and resolving/fixing that thing with adding more code to it1
