I cannot understand why people would post their e-mail addy's and personal web page and put their picture as their avatar and then bytch about their co-workers and work place.
Three cheers for stating the obvious! (Really, I'm glad you did.) So much is common sense, and so much of our troubles are of our own creation.
I'm one of those people who is pretty happy, most of the time. But sometimes a coworker will have a beef, and I'll hear about it. Eventually, it might begin to grate on me, so, should it come up again, I might tend to be on the side of The Annoyed One. And invariably, this will come back to bite me.
Makes no sense. I've known people who've complained constantly, with and without basis, and they seem to have no problem from it.
I guess if I have to choose between keeping my mouth shut and being safe and happy, versus complaining and (apparently) being miserable all the time but having a secure job, I pick "A."
Not getting caught whining and bytching is a side benefit....
