I'm sick of thinking about leaving agency life because a few of you don't respect people you work with. Your lack of boundaries is messing with other people's careers. Please turn on self-awareness.

Which others have you worked in that you can speak for?

Someone is clearly frustrated here, and the first four people beat them down with snarky comments. When you do that you’re part of the problem OP is venting about. @BBDO you might be better off taking this issue to the individual or some real adults at your agency. (But yeah if this is about working late/weekends we do get more than the usual burden of that in this business)

You are the one in control of your thoughts. Other people don’t need to impact you this way if you don’t let them.
