Ugh.. people suck. I have neighbor parking issues too, but nothing so crazy.

Full time only opens up certain times of the year. It's open now, but I'm still in my probationary period. I keep telling myself that I'm transitioning out of the center and to not take all the bullshit so seriously. I work with too many manipulators, users, shit-stirrers, and generally very toxic people. I shouldn't let them drag me down, but they get to me sometimes.

Honestly, I would ask for more hours at the second job if possible so you can tell the center to go fuck themselves. It is summer time, they should be able to swing more shifts since it is busy.

Then just look for a better second job after a bit of normalcy... unless new job can get you full time

Fuck my neighbor. She doesn't like anyone parking in front of her house because she gets home late and doesn't like a long walk. I get that, and we have complied by not parking in front of her place unless she is home or if both spots are open (letting her know that she only needs to ask and we will move if someone else takes the open spot).

But now she is leaving notes saying that isn't good enough. Apparently because we park in other spots on the block, it is somehow our fault that people park in hers and now is telling us to [park around the corner.

Her husband has a big ass SUV and is the only car in her driveway that can fit three normal size cars. Her brother that lives in the back parks in the middle of two spaces all the time.

And when we came home tonight, she is parked dead center in front of her house.

Fuck her and her parking bullshit.

Wow, who knew it could get worse?

Spent a solid hour in a library's bathroom, tending to a client as he kept shitting on the floor and his clothes and having to clean him and the mess up, while my germaphobe coworker stayed with the other clients, staring at her phone.

THEN, another coworker nearly ran over one of my clients with a company van, not using the other staff member with her to spot her AS SHE'S FUCKING SUPPOSED TO.

I ended up having an outburst in my boss' office and of course all the vultures just want to spy around and see who and what I'm talking about.

My boss told me to go home early and not clock out. The remaining staff had a meeting about the fact that people are on their phones too much and neglecting their safety precautions, which apparently turned into a lot of them ganging up on my friend, who's now the case manager over absolutely nothing.

We're hiring for a couple positions. I wouldn't wish this place on anybody.

Going through the hassle of maintaining two jobs right now. I fucking hate my center. I still work with a load of shit heels. Hardly anybody's doing their jobs and most people hate everybody else for one reason or another. There's no teamwork at all.

I'm sitting at one of the picnic tables behind the center right now. A co-worker, knowing I'm still back here, just kicked the doorstop so the door would slam closed and locked. Yup, real pieces of shit.

I work with some real pieces of shit.

Went in to talk to my boss about scheduling my CPR certification renewal, calendar in hand and everything, and while standing there talking with him, another co-worker burst in and started some bullshit small talk about how we need to put one of our clients on marijuana because his new meds are stupid. Then she just stood there. I kept staring at my boss, calendar open. No goddamn respect.

Another co-worker left a client, sitting in the cold, and then just honked the van's horn at him when he shouted in an outburst. Other clients are treated like they're just misbehaving animals.

Practically EVERYONE is on their phones the whole goddamn day, despite the fact that we've all had to sign some "contract" promising we won't look at them or else it'll distract from supervising the clients. I'll even get sent out with people who just stare at their phone and then have a passive conversation with someone.

I fucking hate this place.

A client threw a fit and called me a "fatass" in Spanish today in front of several of the co-workers who hate me. Normally I'd let insults slide and I even acted like it wasn't a big deal (it caught her off guard when I told her that I can understand what she said), but of course the other co-workers were all, "Wait, what did she say?" and then repeating it back to each other.

Our case manager has left and gone onto another position, so several of these jackasses have applied for his job. A couple of them, very obviously at the beckoning of another co-worker who just wants them there as her puppet. Several other co-workers have since voiced to me that if so-and-so gets the job, they are straight-up quitting.


I mean, in the grand scheme of the universe, I'm just a speck of dust concerned with how other specks of dust conduct themselves. None of this is going to fucking matter in the end.

I'm slowly transitioning out of this place. It's too slow, frankly.

I legitimately cannot stand people who bitch about someone behind their back, calling them "fake" and so on, and then acting like that person is your very best friend to their face and in social media. Un-fucking-trustable.

Our boss keeps a mistress among us and she gets away with A LOT. Matter of fact she acts like she can boss us around. What's more it looks like she might become our new case manager, a position for which she is EXTREMELY under-qualified.

I keep saying I want to quit, but I end up sticking for another month or so before the next incident and then the cycle repeats itself.


3 applications a day and bide your time. That is what I try to do... emphasis on try.

Fuck you heel pain. I am sick of your shit. Go away!

Same position I have been working since I got there, so same stress level for less money.

So, it has devolved into high school drama at the Photo lab. Either the manager or main photo specialist started it, we aren't sure which at this point... but basically everyone is attacking the one other associate that actually does things in the lab besides me. I don't think she did anything and given that both potential shit stirrers have a history, I don't know why anyone believes them. But yeah, violation of open door policy, retaliatory behavior, so much shit. Fuck all of it.

That doesn't sound good... is your new position less stressful?

But yeah if you guys can get a group together, I think managers would have a hard time ignoring that.

Didn't you nearly get fired for not having a spotter?

So, they officially gave me a new job code at work... and a pay cut. Wireless was a higher tier, I get it... but then I find out that two of the other floor associates make what I was making, and I have 3+ years of seniority on them. It isn't as bad as the other associates that just got the bump to the new minimum wage, despite previously making just under it... so a new hire at the door now makes as much as a floor worker (which is a higher job tier) that has been there for 5 years. There is much agitation at my work... even people from corporate said that we should go as a group to the store manager... and when Walmart corporate is basically advising you act like you are about to unionize... shit is bad.

The fuck?

Jesus Christ, what a pain in the ass our jobs are.

Really, if my job paid more, I'd be willing to look the other way on most of the drama. My coworkers are back to playing mindgames.

STILL ... I get to say things like, "Today I got paid to take the clients to the aquarium and then to the beach." It's a sweet gig, but there's loads of bullshit, for sure.


Today, our new Transportation Coordinator came to pick up a van to take it to a mechanic way too fucking far away and nearly ran over one of our clients. I had been standing out front, waiting for Brandon to come back with my breakfast. I noticed one of our clients got out of a taxi down the block (WHAT THE FUCK, DRIVER?! Why the fuck the cab dropped him 7 doors down, who the fuck knows?) He's coming down the street just as out new TC comes barreling down our tight alley/driveway. I jumped in front of the van to stop her so he could walk across the driveway safely. She didn't have a spotter like we've all been told to have. I told my boss and he's pissed. I mean, we get chewed out for so much shit and here comes the newest corporate person nearly running down a client. What's more, we've come to discover she was previously a DSP (an aide.) Going from DSP to TC is quite a leap considering our last TC, whom we've known for YEARS (he's been with the company for more than 15 years), was previously a Program Director.

Well... it is kinda shitty on him to have a mistress... unless it's an open marriage and both women are cool with it. But seriously, who the fuck are they to judge. Bitter assholes.

We both need to escape our professional hells, Rogue.

And in other news....

Fuck you work. Block shifts don't work in retail. People don't like working at 4am or until midnight for this kind of job. People don't like having to do the work of 3 people because you won't give out hours or hire more people. We like having out schedule 3 weeks in advance, as per company policy... not finding out the day before it starts.

Since the wedding, and now honeymoon, there are some staff who just don't talk to me at all. Not sure if it's the butt-hurt that they weren't invited or what. Ah well.

Of course, in the case of two of those, they're the ones who started that character assassinating rumor about me. Why the fuck would I even want to pretend to have a pleasant conversation with them, anyway?


Another fuck you to flakes. People complain that I don't invite them to shit, but when I try to arrange something (even checking in, going, "We're still on for Sunday, right?" and them enthusiastically going, "Yeah!"), it all fucking falls apart.

I don't bother inviting anyone from work for anything any more. Hell, the ones who did show for the wedding, only came to the reception.


Oh, hey! And rumor went around that my boss brought BOTH this wife and his mistress to my wedding (he really only brought the mistress.) People who weren't even fucking there started that rumor and were shitting on the boss the entire time I was gone for the wedding and after. Ugh...

You'd think I work with a bunch of middleschoolers, but no, I'm among the younger people there.

I get the stability thing. Hopefully, you get something amazing when you get out of that place.

A continuation of Fuck You new club... specifically management. Everyone else is actually good.

You will find your footing, eventually. You've done it before. You will succeed again.

I'd already told my boss about the rumor, and he already knows that I'm planning on leaving the center after the honeymoon. I'm only sticking around for the sake of stability.

Confront her with the management present and tell her you are looking into taking action for defamation of character. Seriously, these people need to learn that high school bullshit doesn't fly in the real world.

Fuck you new club... I don't even know where to begin on it.

Fuck that I lost my hard drive with ALL my stuff on it. Now I have to scrounge to find important documents.

Fuck that Kaleb still hasn't been able to find work, despite applying to multiple places every day since we got here.

Just vet your therapist, since Xeo is right... they are not all good. But, they can provide help. Do what is best for you in the long run, be that therapy or no.

Fuck holiday retail season. I can't wait for January when it is all over.

I've been pretty lonely myself lately.

I think for the therapist thing, it can certainly be good. But not all therapists are good. It's good to get a fresh take on you from another perspective. That doesn't mean you have to accept everything others might say and bring up, or suggest, but the positive way to see it is that their perception of you can give you some wisdom. Take in the ideas and apply them your way, increasing your knowledge. They might point things out you had never even considered or had hidden away without even realizing it.

*many hugs*

Just know we are always here for you, Rogue. I have only had periodic bouts of depression, not clinical... but I know from others what a bitch it is to deal with. You honestly handle it very well. compared to others.

Fuck sexist management. I was asked to scrub the steel in the tire department by our temporary manager (female) because they needed, "A woman, or a guy that likes to clean, since those do exist, to clean up after a bunch of sloppy men." The part about the guy that likes to clean was because the closer for my department that night was male and I was done in an hour at the time. So I start cleaning, I see my closer and pull him to help... and our direct manager (also female) comes over and checks on us... then thanks my male coworker... and ONLY him. At least the club manager (male) thanked me.

But yeah... fuck this. What part of "wireless sales" covers "clean up after sloppy men"? What part says I have to empty the trash can in electronics because maintenance is lazy? What part says I have to work in other areas when the corporate guidelines say that wireless should never be unmanned from 9am to closing? I'm feeling a bit disgruntled. Hopefully it is not as bad at the club I transfer to, even if that will only be temporary until I can find something better.

Fuck that rent on places in southern California is as much as a mortgage... though, at the same time, kinda surprised that some mortgages are that low.

Oh... and fuck the constant, giant jumps in temperature. I have friends out west that are envious about us getting some nice, cold, fall weather... but it goes from 40 to 70, to 30 then back up to 65... and yeah, it is all much lower than 90-110, but my sinuses are NOT happy. I would rather be hot than sick.
