Really?

Someone here at the office is crying. Loudly. Because she made "an honest mistake and now he's yelling" at her. I'm not sure who it is that's crying. Or who it is that's yelling at her. I don't hear yelling. I can only hear her. Maybe 'he', whoever he is, is out of line. But for the love of Jesus Christ on a toast point, don't cry at work. And if you absolutely cannot control yourself (which she clearly cannot) go to the bathroom or your car or somewhere where 1) the 'offending' party can't hear you and 2) no one else can either.

I know we all have our days when we want to cry. I know that some of us are more quick to tears than others, but to blubber on and on (she's still crying loudly a couple of cube-bays down) for prolonged periods of time is not only unprofessional, it's disruptive. Don't be the woman who gets labeled "the cryer," it won't do you any favors.
