I confided in our Business Manager/HR Director that I am contemplating divorce and that I've been having a rough time personally. The next day in our company-wide social virtual hour, when the company congratulated a co-worker for their recent engagement and when the CEO asked if anything else was going on personally for us, the Business Manager/HR Director blurted out, "well I'm still married", then the CEO said "I am too". It was SO incredibly insensitive of her to even say such a thing, JUST after I had confided in her. I was livid to say the least, and very hurt by her comment. She clearly doesn't give a damn about me, when I thought she did.

While I'm at it, it was the Business Manager/HR Director's own daughter who was most toxic in the entire office, not too long ago. She whined openly about everyone and everything, muttering complaints and negative statements about co-workers under her breath, she gossiped about others in the office, and basically, she was a very negative and toxic influence within the office altogether. And since she's left, it's been a LOT more peaceful.

And all I can think is, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I think our HR Director is a BIG "B". I cannot wait to leave my company. Just found a new Director level job that's a good fit. We'll see.

I'm spending my waking hours preparing for my lessons. I am trying to do a good job but it is taking time for me. I hope I can become quicker at preparing my lessons eventually.

I'm not sure what you teach, but there are a lot of internet resources that can help. Some free and some not...

I was worried Iíd have a change in behavior at work since Iíve had one at home and with my therapist. Thankfully my work behavior is still professional, and I can leave personal problems at home.

I got a fraudulent check in the mail for my services. Ugh. Just a pain because I thought I was going to make money on this. Luckily I had only devoted like an hour to the work so far.

Mickey the Monster, the worst supervisor I have ever known (fortunately not my supervisor), an abusive, racist, misogynistic POS, is gunning for another woman. She complained and was mocked by upper management. How's them apples for morale?

I hope work doesnít call tomorrow looking for me like they did last week. The funny thing is the manager who told me Tuesday, was there last week and he seemed a bit annoyed at me. I had to ask him for next weeks schedule and he said ďitís supposed to be Tuesday.Ē Ok. So I have the store manager and another manager calling my house asking where I am and then the manager doing the schedule telling me something else. Whatever. Iíll bring it up tomorrow if they ask but I really canít go in. I am very sleep deprived and I have to go to the vet with my cat and itís gonna be very bad.

Sure it is perfectly fine that I do and re-do, do and re-do work.
