I got the shit kicked out of me when I was maybe 22 years old, by a 6'4" 220lb Vietnam Vet with Huntington's Chorea. I was maybe 110lbs soaking wet. I was working as an aide. He slammed my head against the table and threw me on the ground, where I slid and hit the opposite wall of the room. Hard enough to bruise my hip. And I didn't get the rest of the day off. They offered me an extra smoke break. Fuckers.

I used to have a neighbor who did medical transcription from home. She was a really cool lady. She moves all over the country, never staying in a place for more than a year or two. She basically shuns material things, and when she moves, she gives away all her dishes and furniture, and gets new stuff from thrift stores when she gets to her new place. She's just a little hippie nomad. As long as she has a PC and internet, she has reliable income. Makes me sort of jealous, lol.

I have a male colleague who is a mansplainer. Another male colleague has told me that he is straight up sexist. He told me today that this guy says I "don't do anything," and my friend explained to him allll of the things I do without tooting my own horn. He begrudgingly said that, given this information- from a man!- he has changed his opinion and now he respects me. Glad my friend stuck up for me but annoyed that he talks about me this way behind my back without having the faintest idea of the contributions I make and how hard I work.

I also saw his mother threaten him to spank him if he hit me, and the principal said that when she took him down the hall to talk to him she was yelling and yanking on his arm. I know this isn't the only reason that he hits, but it is probably one reason. The principal thinks he might be getting abused at home, and I agree that he might be.

Today was better with my student. He touched the scratches on my hand and said,"Sad?" I said, "Yes, sad." He said, "I sorry." <3

my coworker is pregnant and goes on maternity leave next month. she's basically checked out already. pre-pregnancy she was one of our best workers. now she comes in at least 45-60 min late every day and leaves early. while she's there she takes frequent breaks and a 2-3 hour lunch. she doesn't get much work done so everyone else is left to pick up the slack. and of course i'll look like an asshole if i complain because she's pregnant and therefore everyone turns a blind eye and is super forgiving. i can't wait til she leaves. it's as if she's not here anyway.

I'm going to a job fair in a couple weeks and I'm nervous! I really want to impress the people hiring and I will of course be very dressed up, but any other tips? I will be bringing copies of my resume to hand out--what sorts of things should I put on there? I am so nervous and excited all at the same time.

OMG. New phone system + Elderly CW = I actually had to go to her desk, answer the call, then transfer it to myself. This is after the client called THREE times and she cannot do three simple steps. Answer the phone: Step one. Hit the transfer button. Step two. Dial my extension. Step three. Hit transfer again. Hang up the phone. I dunno what the hell she did but she hung up on him three fucking times. We've gone over this so many times. I swear to God, I might start day-drinking.

In response to a confession. No, not really.. When my child was born I did extensive research trying to find a legit work from home job. Nothing ever panned out. I still would like to find one as well but not much out there.

In response to a confession. Recently I was working on a deal with someone in our office. Getting documents from her was like pulling teeth, and required multiple emails EVERY DAY. A couple times I had to go to higher-ups to get them. One time she simply sent me a screenshot of a doc she'd opened up from her email. Not only was the doc cut off, but I almost fainted. She had over 16,000 UNREAD emails in her inbox. Wtf! I have older email accounts that I check only once every few months, and the most I've had is like 4000.
