Work pissing you off? You're not alone.

Maybe this is a no-brainer, but people are getting increasingly angry at work, reports Reuters.

"Desk rage", as it is now known, is getting worse due to outside pressures like high gas prices, the recessing economy and a shaky job market. Thankfully, most of the anger issues don't result in workplace shootings (although, just wait, now that we're able to keep guns in our cars at work), as much as property damage, arguments, verbal abuse and lots and lots of stress.

Even staffers here at CL aren't immune, as evidenced by our own political editor Wayne Garcia threatening associate editor Joe Bardi a couple days ago because of the extra work due to Bardi's vacation.

"(Y)ou better believe I am taking it out on Joe’s ass when he returns," Garcia wrote.

"Jesus, now I’m never coming back," Bardi replied.

No word yet on whether CL's HR department will require Garcia to attend anger management classes or whether Bardi will actually return next week.
