Bit of both I reckon.  Seen some really sound, hard working people struggling.

And some dodgy fuckers having a laugh.

Like everything else in life really.

Good..thanks for the confirmation.

Our Head of Department reckons there's no such thing!

No, he's in the wrong job. If you have an HR dept this needs reporting. Sounds like the sort of prick who would tell someone with depression to cheer up.

What a fucking whopper.  Harvest is bang on, he's actually a risk to the company.  He will be in some pretty warm water if his HR Director gets to know about this.  Even if you are trying to get shot of someone and you suspect they are taking the piss it's a very dangerous game to open your mouth.  Procedures are there for a reason.

I think work stress is becoming more common, as we are all asked to fill more than one roll even mates of mine who have never looked for promotions, were happy to keep their head down are having pressure put on them that they never wanted. 

Not everyone can juggle so many balls, good management should spot this.  Horses for courses innit?

It's easy to dsimiss it and say it doesn't exist, until you experience it yourself then it becomes very real.

I experienced it myself about 8 years ago and to be honest I can look back on it now and it taught me one of the best lessons I've ever learnt. NO job or client is worth putting yourself under so much pressure that you turn into a nervous and emotional wreck. I still do the same job, but can tell much earlier when things are getting on top of me and know how to ease back so I don't ever find myself like that again.

In defence of your head of dept,(not that he should be defended), it is a diffcult condition to understand until it happens to yourself or somebody close. Before it happened to me, I also wasn't sure that it existed.

You don't report people like this, instead you log every "bullying" comment they make about stressed people.  It's worth at least 6 months paid leave and a big fat cheque when you decide to move jobs "due to the constant negative atmosphere created by the manager when your mental condition became known".

Cunts like this are walking reasons for expensive litigation and are therefore worth their weight in gold to someone.

Re: Work related stress

Never worked for anyone else apart from my Mrs now, and she stresses the fuck out of me.

Dont know what its like working for someone else, but for yourself, its all on you, paying your staff, suppliers, yourself...
I was a walking wreck for a good 3 years, nerves shot, drinking way too much, panic attacks. lack of sleep.

LBB's right, even when its your own business you need to know when to take the pressure off.

Take off hosers ...

I know these feelings very well.

Theres work related stress and stress knowing that you could be out of work. Stress that if you do end up out of work, will you get back into work. The older you get, the more all of the above increase. Just my view on it.

Re: Work related stress

Space is right.  If you're coming under unreasonable pressure from your boss, make sure you log every single incident, what was said and to whom and make a note of who else was there too.

You might think it's a situation you can handle but believe me, shit like that can end up having a massive effect on you, especially if it ramps up over a period of time.

I was in a job I loved doing that ended up turning sour with the introduction of a new boss. I watched her destroy so many people, all of whom left one by one until it was finally my turn. She worked on me for nearly 6 months and made my life a misery, even though I was over-performing. Because I'd seen her do it to others, I recognised her MO and noted everything down. She finally fucked up and went overboard on me in front of witnesses, which along with the diary I'd kept ended up burying her.

What pissed me off most was the company knew what she was like and yet did nothing about it. I made sure it cost them in the end though, the bastards..

Re: Work related stress

It's real enough and when it hits it's horrible, funnily enough I've always found the pull your socks up you soft twat types not that stressful. It's the political snide cunts that play it by the book, lick the right arses then pile on the pressure in a "managerial" way that are the ones to watch.
