10 Phrases That You Should Never Say At Work


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch knows that to succeed at work, it’s not always who you know – but rather who knows you.

In other words, you may not know the Big Boss in your organization… but you can certainly get ahead if the Big Boss knows who you are.  They’re the ones who will look out for you in the long run, especially if you’re known as someone who can get things done for them.

Legal advice for TV shows


By web gangsta | Published:

How many times have you sat down to watch a TV show and say to yourself, “These people are idiots – even I know that [fill in the blank] will never work!”

Web Watch sees this all the time, where some character goes on and on about some topic that Web Watch happens to know everything about, and the writers just get it all wrong!

We get it – TV is meant to be entertainment, but sometimes some basic research can make the script just that much more believable to those of us at home who actually do know what we’re talking about.

This is why we are broke


By web gangsta | Published:

Ever look at your bank account statement (or ATM balance) and wonder where all your money went?

Look around your house, and all you see is generic stuff that you really could live without?

Contemplate why you bother with that $5 daily coffee break when the free coffee in the office really isn’t that bad?

It’s true: Popular Kids Will Earn More Money After Graduation


By web gangsta | Published:

Remember the old adage “nice guys finish last”?

It ends up that it’s not always true.  Especially when you replace the word “nice” with “popular”.  Because weren’t the most popular kids in school the nicest ones?  (Don’t answer that… just go with the concept here).

How unique is your name? (Chances are, you’re just one in 546)


By web gangsta | Published:

How unique is your name?

Sure, you may have replaced a “y” with an “i” (let alone decided that dotting the i with a smiley face would be “your thing”).  Your parents may have given you a unique spelling of a typical name, in order to differentiate you as being “special” when you finally go off to school… much to the chagrin of those confused teachers, or the future ability for your child to every find a personalized license plate at SOUTH OF THE BORDER souvenir shop.

A urine taster knows what your pee says about you


By web gangsta | Published:

Be honest – have you ever tasted your own pee, either on purpose or by accident?

Don’t be shy – we know that there’s at least one of you out there who’ve done it.  Astronauts have – their on-board drinking water is partially made from recycled urine.

Most Popular Holiday Gifts for Employees


By web gangsta | Published:

Bosses: are you looking for what type of corporate holiday gifts you should be handing out to your employees at the end of the year?

It can be tough to choose – many organizations have extremely strict limits on how much of monetary value an individual can receive as a gift.  Web Watch knows of one company that gave each employee a $50 gift card last year… along with the appropriate paperwork so the proper taxable amount was reported to the IRS.

Yup, it was the classic “here’s a gift, and don’t forget to pay taxes on it” scam that’s all the rage these days. Continue reading MOST POPULAR HOLIDAY GIFTS FOR EMPLOYEES

Top 5 Restaurant Dishes That Should Never Be Served Ever Again


By web gangsta | Published:

People say that running a bar or restaurant is one of the hardest careers that one can have.  In essence, you’re responsible for your customers’ happiness – which is completely different from being sure you provide good customer service.

People expect their food (or drink) to make them happy and content.  A good meal can bring a level of satisfaction that can only be met by very few other things in this world.  Web Watch will let you choose what those are for you.

Watching Top Chef, Iron Chef, or even the Next Food Network Star pale in comparison to MASTERCHEF, the program that takes “home cooks” and shows that complicated dishes can be made by anyone.

Would you have sex with a stranger? Chances are, yes.


By web gangsta | Published:

Would you have sex with a stranger?

It’s a common thought, honestly.   Many of you think it over almost every single minute of the day, as you’re driving in rush-hour traffic and take a casual glance at the person driving next to you.  Walking down the street and getting a glance from someone at the coffee shop.  Passing someone going the other direction on the escalator.

It may be a fleeting moment, but you think it – just for a second.  “What if…”.   And then, like that, the moment has passed and you’ve moved on with your task at hand.
