Okay, enough messing around. Get back to work.

Your job, your boss, your company leadership probably have an oversized role in your life. They impact you, not just during your 9 to 5, but also when you’re off the clock. You stress about that project, that deadline, that coworker who won’t shut up. You get that late night email, the texted question, the dreaded weekend phone call.

But now, it’s your time for revenge. Write us your damnedest.
