How can you keep a positive attitude at work...especially when many people seem to have none?

Some jobs just flat out suck!
I try to be positive, but it isn't easy on this site when people start name calling, then telling others that they are ruining the site.
I sure haven't seen any name calling here but sure have on other sites! Say it isn't so!!!!!
I wish, just follow me around some day, I have been called just about every name in the book. There are some people on this site when losing an argument/discussion they revert to name calling and that's what happened to me yesterday, I ended up blocking, which I hated to do, because he was a friend, but I don't put up with being dissed in reality and I won't stand for it here on Amirite. I don't block anyone for disagreeing with me, but I will block for name calling.
That's a shame! Childish if you ask me. Saw plenty of it on another site and sure hope I don't see it here.
I agree it's very childish! It used to be a lot worse but every now and again, someone goes ballistic.
Bummer. I used to be a Mod on another site and that stuff really irritated me.
It's so uncalled for. I wonder if those people call people names in reality and that's just what they do. I seriously doubt it but who knows?
Oh, after being a Mod for three years? They are all big shots when hiding behind a screen!
Exactly, and they try to bully people, especially women. But they soon find out the women on this site aren't pushovers, and we will fight back when necessary. I don't pick fights, but I don't shy away from them either.
Big reason why I don't ever want to be a Mod ever again. It was too hard being nice when the person needed an **** chewing!
I don't blame you one bit. It's hard dealing with people and trying to keep everyone happy, that's an impossible task. I wouldn't have that job for all the money in the world.
Yep! I was a volunteer also! Should have remembered what I learned in the Army.
NEVER VOLUNTEER! LOL
You just have to realize some people have it rough outside of work.
I dont know what you do, or if you like it.
Maybe it is the tedium of it, or not??
Do you like what you do??
For the most part...but there are always people to deal with that can make it difficult...
In my job being or acting positive is part of the gig but it does require a lot of acting at times.
Sometimes being negative can be part of the job... I say suck it up...and just do the best you can....
I always have to be a positive ray of sunshine at work because people at work depend on it. Let me tell ya it is not an easy task. If I feel like I can't be that way then I stay in the office because I don't hide my emotions well. I really can't fake being positive.
Work is a hellish place full of people who want you to function like a robot and people who think in terms of boxes and figures not reality
It's not always easy but you have two choices and one choice isn't going to help anything...
especially when all your coworkers are always so negative
