Ass

This day has sucked ass. I know that is harsh and really even kind of ugly, but seriously, it has. I have been in the service department all day, and new owner has been running amok all fricking day long. No, he does not need my permission for running that way. No, he does not need to ask me what to do, how to do it, when or where. However, he is going to want help with his amok running at some point, and I am not in the mood. Were it not for a promise I made to a certain previous owner, I would not ever go back there. But I did. And I will. Ugh. Ass, I'm tellin' ya.

I finally caught up on all your posts. I'm sorry I've been behind. Computer problems, you know. Well, you're certainly going through a transition. I wonder what you'll end up doing in the end. Staying with the new owner? Getting an entirely new job? Something has to give. It might be your time to take on a new venture now that your friend/owner has moved on. You're not indebted to the new guy, so if the stress is too much, move on. There's better things out there for you. I want you to get better and be happier in the day to day. Because I care about you.

Honey, Here advice from your Jewish Yenta Aunt who is actually not Jewish, and not your Aunt. Or even female.

I maybe way late to this show but have you sat down one on one with new guy and set out what you are and are not willing to do ? also, had a meeting to find out what he wants from you ? In my mind you have the power here. He needs you or you would allready be gone. I'd set him down and get some game rules on the table. Like I said, I know little, but from my wee perspective you need to pick up the power you've left on the table.

I only say this because I've always thought of you as a Non-shit taking woman. Now go make me proud Sis.

XOXO Brad

You know, I am feeling really uggy right now and reading your title and first sentence cracked me up. So, sorry about your assy day, but thanks so much for the laugh!

I have a feeling if/when you leave, they will regret that day with much sorrow.

*snort* skanky drunk - I like that!

Damn... I was hoping the first day would go better than that. I'm so sorry. :(

oh lord how I hate those kinds of days! Wish I could give you some sage advice but the best I can offer is to have a good stiff drink and then snuggle under the comforter, hopefully sleep will take over and by tomorrow you will know how to handle him....I just KNOW IT. You know it too, doncha?

Aunt Brad could be right. You just might have more power than you think. I sure hope things settle down around there soon.

I second what Brad said (it gave me a chuckle, thanks Brad) with a little bit of Maria thrown in for good measure. Skanky drunk! Love it. I'll come too and you can have a birthday drink with me.

I think if you looked around for another job you might actually be pleasantly surprised. You've got a lot of good skills and there must be lots of businesses that could do with your talent. Give it some thought eh......

aaaand just how did i miss this?
hmmmm.
well... i spose i already covered it in conversation anyhow. but i still feel feel left out. *tear*
me and my mushroom-ism.. (kept in the dark--and pooped on. hmm. yep, that's about it.)

anyhow--- it looks like we all do feel the same here-- we all love you, and want you to be happy.

and like i said before-- maybe to someone else..

when you have more bad days than good-- it's time for change.

no one needs to be unhappy-- to please someone else-- especially the someone who is making them unhappy.

it isn't like you are under contract. we all know you are a woman of good character, and have a word of stone-- but when it compromises your happiness... or your physical well being to follow through in something you agreed to -- when you were THIS unsure of the terms in... there is not one thing wrong-- or immoral in.. if you decide in your best interest to walk away from.

respect deserves respect-- and you aren't gettin any. there is NO reason you should compromise your happiness-- sanity, or body--- for this guy-- or this job--

yes i did just wake up-- and yes i am rambling-- so yes i will leave now-- but i think you do get at least a little of what i'm trying to say--that i maybe coulda said in three words or less.

you have had one hell of a year jamie... don't let this guy take control of another one. k?
i too vote for the skanky drunk--- :))


please try to have a good day.

maybe when you realize how LITTLE this guy matters.. you can relax a litle.

i hope so. and really someone else said it-- YOU really are the one with the control there-- in fact i think i know someone else who said that in a different way too...
let the guy see just how much you matter there-- go in one day and screw around a bit-- let him have the reigns for a day-- he'd be a lost puppy if you didn't help him.

that-- i would like to see.

anyhow-- i'll give you your blog back now.

:))

Janie, Monday SUCKED ASS. All the way around. So did Tuesday. Oh, and i forgot on the other post, I LOVE the term clusterfuck. :) Sometimes describing something in the foulest possible terms makes you smile just a little...just a sense of being naughty. And I'm with Maria--wanna to get skanky drunk? I'm with you both! Wine? Whiskey? Beer? What's your poison? LOL.

Aunt Brad might have a point, but I think the new boss does recognize the power you have and resents the hell of out it. Asshole.
