We’ve all been there … someone takes your lunch from the work fridge, uses all the printer paper and doesn’t replace it, talks on the phone so loudly that noise canceling headphones don’t stand a chance. Even in the most peaceful of offices, there are bound to be co-workers who get on your last nerve. So, how do you cope before you lose your mind? Alison Green from Ask a Manager joins Marketplace Weekend every month to guide us through life at work.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
