Every single body in this world is perfect, and hopefully, you love every inch of the skin that you’re in.

There are many people in this world who love their waist and want to show it off at every opportunity.
Cinch Yourself In With A Belt
The easiest way to show off your waist is to add a belt to your outfit. This is especially helpful if you have wide shoulders or larger hips, as clothes can often hide the definition underneath the fabric. By wearing a belt around your waist, you can cinch in the fabric and show off what your momma gave you.
Highlight Your Waist With A Long Necklace
Sometimes one of the best ways to show off your assets is to draw even more attention to it. So, why not add a long necklace to your outfit? Unlike a short necklace that will normally draw attention to your bust, a long necklace will draw the eye to your waist area. By doing so, it will show off the fact that you have a beautiful waist the deserves the attention it’s getting.
High Heels Do All Of The Leg Work
Although there’s absolutely no reason why you should have to wear high heels if you don’t want to, there are many women out there who like the way that high heels transform their body. They make your legs look longer, your body looks more streamlined, and your waist smaller.

People are Sharing Stories About Awful Coworkers They’ve Worked With and Just Wow
Anywhere but Here!
There are certain things that you never want to see in the workplace. After all, the workplace is a professional environment where you would expect people to act professionally.
The situation that this person and their coworkers saw due to the actions of their boss definitely isn’t professional at all. Every time they would try to talk to him, he would be clipping his toenails or filing his bunions. We’re not surprised there were complaint – at least keep your shoes on in the office!
Forget the Little People
Fast food jobs often come with some odd coworkers. Like we mentioned before, this is probably due to the high turnover rate and, thus, the sheer number of different people you meet.
This person actually didn’t have a problem with the coworker in question until he was promoted. As a manager, he became a nightmare to work with. He was more prone to slacking off and was generally unpleasant to be around. Worst of all, it seemed he was immune to getting fired.
Getting Others in Trouble
Working with someone who lies about their coworkers is often nerve-wracking. After all, when other people are being blamed for their lack of work, it leaves people rushing to pick up their slack.
When this person was working one night, they were surprised when the complaint came up the next day that they hadn’t done anything. This was apparently because of a complaint by a coworker named Cathy. Even worse, they tried to apologize for the perceived slight and Cathy didn’t take it well.
Mad With Power
Working a summer job while you’re in school is often difficult. After all, it’s your first job and you’re just learning the ropes of what having a job is like.
Your first job is also an unfortunate point when it’s harder to deal with difficult coworkers and bosses. This person found that their manager when they worked in a garden center. She was more than happy to give them the most strenuous and labor-intensive jobs, often leaving it to them alone.
There are certain mistakes that coworkers can make in the workplace that have limited consequences. After all, there’s no life on the line if a mistake is made in most jobs.
These coworkers were in a much more serious setting: a summer camp for children with Type 1 Diabetes. As such, the counselors kept snacks on them in case someone’s blood sugar fluctuated. The coworker in question would eat these snacks, resulting in low supplies and one health emergency.
He Sounds Great
There are some coworkers you run into that annoy you because of a certain trait. Then, there are coworkers that are just all-around bad news for the other team members to avoid.
First, this person noticed their coworker was more than happy to come to work straight from the gym. This meant that he was pretty smelly at work. To make things even worse, they also described him as egotistical and, even though he never directly said it, sexist.
Defining Your Title
While coworkers can be awful, we’ve seen that supervisors and directors can be pretty bad as well. This person was expressing their disdain for their supervisor.
They had a few complaints but the big one was that they didn’t seem very bright. At the very least, underqualified for the position. For one, as someone specialized in GIS, she didn’t know what it stood for. Plus, she doesn’t understand the software company uses and is condescending to boot.
“Earning” a Living
If you’re paid an hourly wage, you’re paid for the hours you’re clocked in for. You typically clock in at the beginning of the shift, clock out at the end, and the hours are logged.
Assumably, you’re supposed to work during those hours. However, this person’s coworker found a way around it. They would clock in, leave, and then come back at the end of their shift to clock out. To make matters worse, this was something that the manager knew and basically ignored.
Can You Cover for Me?
When you’re working in a professional environment, you might pick up an extra shift here and there. Yet, if coworkers keep asking you to cover for them, it can get old pretty quickly.
This person said their worst coworker was someone they named as Madeleine. More than just asking, though, she would often rope her coworkers into having to cover for her. The person posting even said they got a call from her after they stopped working at the company!
Communication Is Key
Anytime you’re working on a group project, communication is key. This is something that most people would learn by the time they’re in a situation with their coworkers rather than class.
This person was working with an electrical engineer when they learned this isn’t always the case. While this person needing specific instructions isn’t necessarily awful, refusing to communicate is pretty difficult. Even worse, he was quick to blame everyone else if he made a mistake for his lack of communication.
Just Here to Work, Man
There are a lot of situations in which a coworker is more than just annoying. They can be outright uncomfortable to be around.
This person said their coworker, Ian, was constantly flirting with them. This even went for when their boyfriend was present! To make matters even worse, he had other poor coworker behaviors like trying to get others to do his job. Eventually, he even caused someone to file a lawsuit against the company. He really sounds like one of the worst coworkers out there.
It’s always hard to deal with awful coworkers. Conversely, it can sometimes be even harder to deal with an awful coworker that just seems overly helpful on the surface.
This person had to deal with the latter situation when they met this coworker. While he wasn’t necessarily aggressive, he’s definitely passive-aggressive in his actions. This included tailing this person if they were even seconds late responding to an email and generally act as a tough but false supervisor rather than a coworker.
Asking for Proof
There are times when it’s understandable that a boss would require proof that someone needs time off. However, there are times when that subject becomes much more sensitive.
For instance, when this person needed a day off to go to their grandfather’s funeral. Their boss, Debbie, didn’t just ask for proof but flat out told them that they didn’t believe them. Naturally offended by the accusation, they quit. Debbie probably didn’t appreciate this from a florist the week of Mother’s Day.
They Were Framed!
When you start a new job, you’re in a particularly vulnerable position from awful coworkers. After all, you don’t know who to avoid in the workplace or what advice to think twice about.
Early on, they had another cashier come up to them and request that they cash out their paycheck. They were honest in responding that, as a new hire, they hadn’t been trained to do that. The coworker was happy to teach them what to do but they later learned it wasn’t so altruistic.
Work Means Working
This person admitted that the coworker they hated, Dana, wasn’t the worst. On the other hand, she worked hard to make sure that everyone else’s task load was harder than it needed to be.
For one, they describe her as someone you can never ask a question to without a negative result. On top of that, it seems like communication wasn’t her forte as well since she failed to copy people on emails. This led to team projects overlapping and taking forever.
You Can’t Do Everything
There are plenty of times that coworkers are considered awful because they try to skip out on work. This is actually the exact opposite of the problem here.
In describing a series of awful coworkers, this person started with a coworker who wanted to be a part of everything. As a result, though, she’d get herself involved in projects that she wasn’t qualified to do and cause a problem if her workload was lightened. Eventually, it was tardiness that did her in.
Just Do Your Job
Sometimes, it isn’t your career where you meet the worst coworkers. There are times when your teenage job seems to have some of the worst people to work with.
This person was only 17 when they started working at a concrete company over the summer. While they worked there, they were often given all the worst jobs. It was part of being the new, young person. However, it was pretty convenient that the company owner’s son got much better treatment.
Waiting for the Perfect Moment
There are certain coworkers that just have a knack for some tasks and are pretty bad at others. This awful coworker was great at prep but failed to cook, clean, or restock – his other duties.
One day, while the McDonald’s they worked at was busy, this person asked the coworker to get some work done. Somehow, he managed to slice his hand and seemed upsettingly okay with this turn of events. Probably because, as they learned later, he managed to steal $5,000 in the meantime.
If you make a mistake at some jobs, it’s not a big deal. Yet, when you’re working a job where a mistake could result in injury, you have to be extra careful or someone could get hurt.
This person was working with someone who was responsible for operating an overhead crane. While he was doing this, he managed to cause the controller to swing in an arc, hitting another coworker in the head. Even worse, he refused to apologize since it was an accident.
And You Believe This?
There are plenty of odd things that people believe in. This could include a strange conspiracy theory or even a misheard fact that they tout as the truth.
When you can’t reason with someone like this, it’s beyond frustrating. That’s why this awful coworker made this person’s list for his genuine belief in “cabbits” – the offspring of a cat and rabbit. As one person pointed out, Googling them even comes up with the immediate answer that these animals aren’t real!
Bad at it and Mean
There are certain traits that are annoying but that you get used to. For instance, a person who constantly tells lies is irritating but easy enough to avoid in a workplace setting.
On the other hand, there are certain traits that promote someone into the “awful coworkers” category. For this woman, it was her generally unprofessional behavior, to coworkers and customers alike. Even worse, there was also the issue of her not really being great at knowing what was going on in the company or with the software she used every day.
Heard Through the Grapevine
If there’s one thing that isn’t ideal in the workplace, it’s gossip. Gossiping coworkers is a quick way to create internal conflict and frequent negative gossip can lead to unpleasant conditions.
That’s why coworkers like this one can cause so many problems among staff. While this person was interning, they watched the same person call their coworkers into their office to start gossip. Even worse, they’d call the person they were gossiping about and fill them in on what the other person said.
Lying About Credentials
When credentials are required for a job, it’s usually because you’ll need those skills to succeed. This is also why lying about the skills you have is often a plan that will blow up later.
This person’s awful coworker was someone who came on board as an SEO expert. While he was generally interested in web development and design, he was as experienced as he let on. Even worse, the person added that this particular “expert” was happy to boss his coworkers around.
We’ve all worked with someone who had an interesting quirk that was clear, even in the workplace. Especially in places like McDonald’s over a more serious office setting.
This person, while they worked at McDonald’s, found that Daniel was the odd one among their coworkers. While he wasn’t necessarily mean or underhanded, he overshared a bit. The number of times that you go to the bathroom in a day isn’t exactly what your coworkers want to know.
Good Deeds Backfiring
It’s always good to help your coworkers when they need it, right? Well, on the other hand, it can become problematic if that’s what this person expects of you all the time.
This person was only trying to help their coworker when they got caught up in constantly helping him remove viruses from his computer. One day, they were particularly busy when he asked them for help. Upon their refusal, this awful coworker lost his temper and continued to harass them until they quit a couple of months later.
Don’t Do This
In the modern age, it’s much more common for previously private facts to be common knowledge. However, this usually refers to if someone posted on social media for coworkers to see.
This person went in a different direction and decided to Google all their coworkers. This would be unsettling enough but he loved to share what he found too. This person said the coworker in question learned how much they sold their apartment for. As a result, everyone in the office knew shortly afterward.
Not Paid for Hours Worked
While you may not always like you’re job, there is one benefit: you’ll get paid. At the very least, this should be a guarantee for anyone who’s working. Otherwise, what’s the point?
This person shared their story not of awful coworkers but an awful boss they had. While they were working, they frequently found hours missing from their paycheck. Their boss always had the same promise: they’d be added next week. As it turns out, it conveniently happened when they worked overtime.
We all make mistakes from time to time. After all, to be human is to err and no one can blame you for the occasional, unintentional slip-up.
The problem arises when you have coworkers that make big mistakes again and again. For instance, this coworker, who should maybe get his eyes checked. We say that because he kept misreading decimal points. This ended in some big mistakes like 100 kg of flour instead of one kg. That’s no small error!
It’s hard to deal with an awful coworker but sometimes things go beyond annoying. There are situations in which coworkers may take the liberty to break the law.
This person’s coworker was actually a cook in the restaurant they worked in. He was doing everything he could to steal from the business. This started with missing physical supplies but it quickly moved into stealing money. A consistent 30% tip every time is pretty suspicious, we wonder how he thought he wouldn’t get caught.
Taking the Lie Too Far
This person was seemingly done with all their coworkers at their current job when they answered this question. As far as awful coworkers go, they had a list that covered everyone.
One of the particularly annoying coworkers was someone who loved to lie. Even worse, when they were shown evidence proving their lies were false, they wouldn’t give in. The example that this person gave even included them arguing about the weather in front of their face!
There are certain things that don’t make people bad per se but it can work against someone’s pet peeves. This can make work annoying when you’re trapped in an office with your pet peeve.
This person was particularly annoyed at their coworker’s habit of clicking their pen all day long. Even worse, they noted that she didn’t even click it in a pattern or to a tune. Instead, she just repeatedly clicked the pen all day long in what they described as a random cacophony.
A Nightmare Boss
Even if your boss is awful, there are certain things you expect from them. After all, there are certain things that bosses just can’t do to their employees, right?
This person’s experience says otherwise. First, they noticed their boss was happy to threaten to fight employees which they eventually reported him for. However, things only got worse when the boss tried to follow through on their threat. Unfortunately, even a physical fight wasn’t enough to get this horrific boss fired.
At Least Stand Up
We’ve looked at a lot of different types of awful coworkers so far. One of the most direct ways to affect a business and your coworkers’ workloads is to avoid work altogether.
This person said the worst coworker they’ve ever had was a young woman who insisted on playing on her phone all day. It makes it even worse that she was just laying on the floor – at work – constantly. To top it all off, she’d even scream regularly with customers watching in horror.
The Boss’ Daughter
There are certain times when your coworkers get certain privileges that you don’t. This is often the truest when someone like the boss’ child gets hired at the company.
This person had to work with the boss’ daughter who enjoyed plenty of privileges. This included a range of concepts. They noted that she rarely showed up to work and if she did, she would cry when provoked and tattle on anyone else’s mistakes. Worst of all, she had a salary much higher than everyone else.
Actually, It’s Not
After a while of working somewhere, you start to learn who is worth your time and who isn’t. However, if you learn on the second day at the job, they’re probably pretty awful.
This person started their job as a research assistant. They were not a member of the custodial staff and, more importantly, deserve basic respect. Their manager took their second day as a chance to cover their desk in trash. This wouldn’t even be respectful to someone with that job description!
Source of Chaos
Working at an ice cream shop might sound fun at first. After all, who could say no to ice cream discounts? Yet, even ice cream shops are plagued by awful coworkers.
This person had a list about one of their old coworkers. This included concepts like her habit of cutting corners, standing around doing nothing, and disappearing while she was on shift. She even made mistakes like misplacing milk jugs, leaving others to get yelled at in her stead.
But You Aren’t Doing Your Job
There’s nothing worse than awful coworkers who seem to slack off in just the right way to make trouble for others. It’s hard enough to deal with social awkwardness much less an increased workload.
This person described their awful coworker, Jay, as a scenario just like this. They stated that one complaint was his passive-aggressive behavior. This included his habit of “forgetting” tasks that he thought he shouldn’t have to do. Even worse, when they confronted him, he veered towards a more outright aggressive response.
The Two Work Tasks
Most jobs are made up of a variety of tasks, although there are more specialized options out there. The point of having a job is to actually complete those tasks, though.
We’ve all had coworkers that seem pretty against the idea of working at all. This person probably takes the cake when it comes to awful coworkers, however. They described the coworker as a woman who tackled two main activities at work. This included napping in her car or reading a certain infamous novel at her desk.
Exactly What to Do
Different jobs have different descriptions. If you work as a receptionist, your duties usually include answering phones, greeting clients, and you probably have a hand in scheduling.
That means if you refuse to do one of these duties, it can result in a big problem. This person was working in an office where one receptionist continuously ignored the ringing phone. Why? Well, she was busy playing on her own phone, of course. This probably led to quite a bit of hassle.
The Customers Don’t Work for You
When you work somewhere that has a high turnover rate, you’re likely to meet all different kinds of coworkers. Some of them you’ll get along with and some may leave you wishing you hadn’t met.
This person actually thought their awful coworker, Cecilia, was the most memorable. She would wait tables while chatting on her phone the whole time. She would even hide under tables from the manager. Once, she even handed her phone to a customer, telling them to call her over if she got a call!
Maybe a Little Too Honest
There’s one thing about someone being an unfortunate coworker by mistake. You might think they just find some of their responsibilities uniquely difficult even if you think they’re easy.
It’s much more infuriating when a coworker is honest and intentional about their decisions. This person ran into a coworker that was a little too upfront. They told them flat out that they avoided completing tasks quickly so they wouldn’t have time to help anyone else. What a classy approach.
There are plenty of awkward conversations that people have lived through at work. Yet, you would hope most of these would fall under awkward situations rather than rude habits.
This person worked with someone who lived for one-sided conversations. They stated that he would start conversations all the time. The result was that he would ramble on about a topic, the exact topic varies, and not let the other person talk at all. So, it’s more like being trapped in a monologue.
Paranoia Creeping In
There are certain things you’ll come across in the workplace that are odd but, ultimately, you have to deal with them. Being accused of things you didn’t do would get a little old.
This person said that they worked with someone who they found to be pretty paranoid. This included incidents in which she accused other staff members of things like stealing the car keys she’d misplaced. They only had to work with her for eight months before she left, though.
The Truth Comes Out
Covering for a coworker is nice, at first, in the sense that it’s a gesture of goodwill. On the other hand, it’s one that can be easily taken advantage of.
When this person started covering their coworker’s work, they just thought they were helping someone on a time crunch. As it turns out, their coworker was more than happy to let them keep filling their role. When they approached him about it, he even asked why they should change it at all!
Wait a Second…
There are certain things that you may expect from a supervisor, especially one that isn’t great at their job. For instance, they might be a little too strict or discipline a little too harshly.
As far as coworkers and supervisors go, this person happened across the worst of the worst. They were pretty blatant about how they felt concerning employee opinions and questions. They directly told this person that there were two things they should never do: ask questions or even think.
