I'm helping to manage social media for my organization, along with one other woman, "Susan". There is a man who I know she refuses to deal with, let's call him "Bill". Now that I'm helping, "Bill" has started submitting things to me, demanding to know when they will be posted, and trying to micromanage me down to the smallest detail, except he's not my manager. "Susan" has refused to deal with him for a long time and told him that all requests need to go to our higher up, "Ted." I don't want to be rescued by "Ted," so I checked in with him today, told him what was up, and that I was going to set firm limits with Bill the next time he tries it with me. If he doesn't accept those limits I'm going to refer him to Ted and wash my hands of it. I don't think Bill would treat me this way if I was a man, and I also have a feeling he is not going to respect my limits. So sick of this already. Bill has always been like this, with everything. God, grant me the confidence of a mediocre white dude!

13yrs ago when I moved to this town, I got hired in a managerial position and one of the people I was supposed to manage (CW) was PISSED that she didn't get the job. She told me flat out she was never gonna do anything I asked. She was my superior's pet, and she really didn't do anything I asked. Ever. My superior thought it was funny. Then.. I busted my superior embezzling money. It was ME that caught it in the bank rec. So CW figured it was my fault that our boss (who let her get away with murder) got fired. Man, she just hated me. Bad. Fast forward to now: I haven't worked at that place in 10yrs, and CW got fired not long after I quit. I just got a visit from someone that works with CW now, at her current employer. Guess what? She STILL talks shit about me and hates me. STILL. ... Still! 10 years later! Wow!

In response to a confession. I fantasise about doing this all the time. Been here 18 months, still on minimum wage with and classed as temp but given even more responsibilities- which is great but I am so done with being underpaid and lied to about a permanent position

So, as it turns out, DH is an amazing bartender and has picked it right back up after 20 years like riding a bike. People love him. As for me? I'm not so sure I'm gonna love this whole server business. We'll see how today goes. Last night? Not fun! New boss: "Use your personality!"...Me: "Have you MET me?" (we've known each other ten years.)

I love my job, I really do. I love getting up early and having time to do some yoga, shower, blast music while I get dressed and ready... then I go to work and I get to essentially solve puzzles all day and get paid great for it. The only part of my job I don't love is that I don't have my own private office. I have one single coworker besides my boss and she drives me batshit crazy but that's because she's in my space ALL the time and I hate that. She f*cking mutters to herself... it's a lot of shit. And I can't get away from it. Lo and behold: this summer we're going to do some improvements to the building and I'm getting my own private office with a door.. and only MY files will be in there, the copier will NOT be near my desk, and my desk will NOT be situated right where people stand to bullshit with my boss for hours at a time. I'm f*cking stoked.

My week has been garbage and it's only Tuesday, but my favorite patient just brought me candy and it really cheered me up. The job I start soon has no direct patient care, and while I'm ready for a change, I'm gonna miss that old dude.

I like my job. I'm glad I can say that. Sure it can be better with certain aspects, but I like it. Do I like waking up and getting ready? No I don't, mainly because I'm not a morning person. But I don't complain about it, not even on a bad day. But I really can't stand people that complain constantly about their job. I've seen the same people that go to job to job and just complain about it. They don't realize they are the common denominator! THEY are the damn problem.

Today is my first day on the server job and I'm nervous af. I have to go over there after I'm finished working, at my regular job. I've tried to memorize as much of the menu as I can, and like what sides go with what, and what beers are on tap.... but man they have like 13 different seafood entrees on the menu. (why?) And I cannot remember them all. I'm freaking out. Oh, why did I agree to this? *freaks out*

I realized what the issue is with my young, arrogant CW that hates me. I don't pander to him and fawn over how smart he is like the other ladies at work he's friends with. They all just think he is SO SMART! And I kinda don't. I mean, he is a smart kid, but I call him out on his mistakes and he sure hates that. I think as I get older I am getting better at seeing through other people's bullshit.
