My old job had this bitch that would run to the boss and cry.Literally.Paid to do the same job as everyone else and would ask for you to do it for her.Daily.Sure, the first couple times, sure.I'll show ya.But after like 2 months you should be able to do it yourself.Part of the reason I don't work there any more.Her runnin to the boss ballin her eyes out.Saying that I wouldn't help her.Bullshit.She was just lazy and tried to play the helpless card.I had my own duties to take care of at the end of the day.Now I'm suppose to do yours now too?I hear that she still does it and the guys have been told to do it or leave.

I cried once at work. I was managing a residential treatment center for adolescent delinquent males and was somewhat new to the organization. One of the kids in the center was having all sorts of problems following the rules and wasn't willing to work with me, either. I asked for some advice from the other manager there with me who had been with the organization for several years. He didn't seem to have any better ideas for me and said "let's see how it plays out" since the kid seemed to be doing better listening to others. The direct care staff were able to get the kid to follow the program rules and back down to the living unit.

I left work and called in about 1/2 hour later to check on the kid. The co-manager informed me he had called our boss "to inform him of the situation" and that things were okay. When I asked why he called as there wasn't a reason to do so, he got all vague and wouldn't answer me. The next morning I asked to talk to my boss to see what I did wrong and was told that I didn't do a thing wrong and the other manager was disciplined. I cried because I was scared, thinking I screwed up only to find out my boss had my back.

Cant say I never cried at work---it wasn't about work --being in the place I have for 13 yrs, you wind up with bad news at work, mother-n-law passing away, 1 of the painters had a son killed in a car accident, brother-n-law getting killed. So the guys I work with have seen me cry and I have seen most of them do the same. When we get emotional at work--the yelling starts or the parts start flying. Nothing in my job is worth crying over other than my checks lately.

I think people (men and women) who work in the medical field who have to care for the sick are 'exempt' from being looked at as weak.....It must be tough and nearly impossible to not have emotion to see the things that can happen to the innocent.

this is fine and normal. crying to not get in trouble or because you made a mistake is not.
