Kansas Author's 'Punch' List For The Annoying Co-Workers Among Us

Sep 11, 2017

Jen Mann's pursuit of a career in writing took her from Kansas City to New York and back, but the temporary gigs she picked up along the way gave her plenty of fodder for 'Working With People I Want to Punch in the Throat.' A particularly low spot in that journey? "I interviewed with a plastic surgeon who spent the entire time telling me all the things he could fix as a perk," she says.

Overland Park writer Jen Mann was inspired to create her People I Want to Punch in the Throat blog by, well, all the people she wants to punch in the throat. Today, we speak with the New York Times best-selling author about the latest installment in her snarky series, and about the people she's worked with who almost — almost! — forced her to fisticuffs.

Jen Mann is kicking off the 'Working With People I Want to Punch in the Throat' book tour at SoT at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 12. Visit the event page on Facebook for more information.
