The fraus I work with...

The fraus I work with started a Facebook group and invited about 5-6 people in our department to join. They do nothing but trash talk about the 1 straight boy in our group who is being groomed for our bosses job.

It's a total HR train wreck, yet I can stop reading it.

What are some of the amusing things the fraus you work with do besides organize potlucks?

Can't post a link since it's a private group.

You mean apart from peddling girl scout cookies for every daughter, niece, granddaughter, neighbor's kid they have? We've got Mary Kay salespeople, a group of knitters and crochet hookers, the Diet Girls who weigh their lettuce on a scale and then go home and polish off a tub of chocolate mousse in their bathroom, a clutch of whiny, post-menopausal dingbats with hair trigger tempers, and then there's the medicated ones, the Bipolar Buddy club. I, of course, am the only sane one here.

All they have to do is piss somebody off in the group and it all goes public.

Oh, PLEASE cut and paste some of the tittle-tattle. Leave off the names if necessary.

I don't mind Girl Scout cookies, but I'm annoyed when people sell everything under the sun: wrapping paper, holiday cards, magazine subscriptions, cookware, kitchen gadgets, energy drinks and vitamin supplements, Avon... Most people are cool about it and just leave the catalogs out, but there's always someone who has a strong expectation that you should buy.

I work with a lot of young fraulein in my brokerage house. You know the type...entitled, spoiled little cunts in their mid-20s who've had everything handed to them and who think they're the center of the universe. They're all looking to hook up with a hot guy or bag a wealthy husband. They all think they're hotter than they really are. They all smoke and go out drinking a lot. These little tramps will have a rude awakening when they hit their 30s.

Fraus are not in their mid-20s, R8.

Get with program. Start a general women-hating thread if you must.

There is this one frau at my work who I can't stand. She goes from desk to desk trying to make phony conversation with everyone as if she's oh so sweet, but every conversation turns into her talking about her kids. I'm so tired of it and her fake niceness. Just leave me the fuck alone. Better yet, STFU and do some work.

Older, sweet (to your face) country lady who only pushed her collection of porcelain hens and roosters aside to keep detailed records of her supervisor's comings and goings.

Older, sweet (to your face) "administrative assistant" who manages to push most of her work off onto others, then complains about not having anything to do.

I, though male, am the frau of my hallway, so file me under "whiny, post-menopausal dingbats with hair trigger tempers."

If they're married and have kids they are.

I would say the younger ones have "fraubies", a form of domestic rabies, as they are hell-bent on establishing their new identity.

[quote]I don't mind Girl Scout cookies

I do. They are filled with crap: just sugar, fat, salt, and fake flavors.

It also offends me that I should be subjected to this crap at work.

I worship Girl Scout cookies.

I'm glad I work in a profitable startup where the average age is probably 30. Can't imagine working with all these horrible sounding 40-50 year old women

by Anonymousreply 1907/20/2014

R19, I bet those women would vomit at the thought of working with you.

by Anonymousreply 2007/20/2014

I agree with R9 - Fraus are a certain type of woman - not every woman is a frau. Younger women do not generally come in the frau version.

It's the worst. The old broads in my office are constantly in a power struggle. They go from being fake nice to each other one day, to having huge showdowns with HR.

R20 = frau

by Anonymousreply 2307/20/2014

I work with a bunch of older women, none of them are unpleasant people at work. There are a couple of grumpy older guys but they are sick with cancer and heart disease.

Doesn't constant complaining about 'fraus' kind of drop to down to their level?

Fraus are the type of women who wear holiday themed sweaters and earrings and are constantly shopping candy bars to fundraise their local church's ceiling rebuild.

I don't know, I read threads like this one and it is always jolting for me. I am a 48 year old woman who has never had kids,was only married for 6 years in my mid 20's to early 30's, and suffers from bi-polar depression. I have been self-employed my entire life and every person who has bullied me has been a frau or a lesbian. I don't belong anywhere.

Datalounge is the only message board that I follow regularly. I have been reading it since 2002.

by Anonymousreply 3007/21/2014

R30, I'm sorry that people bullied you. I am self-employed and am very glad to not have any co-workers or bosses to deal with. I don't like drama and regular workplaces are full of it. I thank my lucky stars every day that I can work in peace.

by Anonymousreply 3107/21/2014

It's complicated, R30, but the bottom line is you can't take any of this shit you see on DL seriously. The regulars here tend to be disaffected -- they bitch about women, people of color, trans persons, fat people, poor people, etc.

And they're doing it because they don't feel like they belong anywhere, so they want to create a space where they exclude everyone else, too. It can be toxic but it's also understandable in a way.

by Anonymousreply 3207/21/2014

You are reminding me of why I'm glad I never have to work in an office setting again. Sick of frau jealousy, backbiting, gossip, refusal to do their share of the work, and yes, selling at work is the worst of it all.
