She had the audacity to speak plainly to her supervisor who is now firmly revealed himself to be a dick, as is our big boss. She was very professional, but he was not. Its all infantile. Now my supervisor, a lateral person in the power scheme is also threatened with firing (shes worked here for 20 years) for trying to be an adult and sit all down and talk. And I am in the toxic wake. The big boss is stomping around like a psycho. I have my headphones on, can't really work, so I this is my plea for sanity. Is anyone out there? Why cant people with power be fair and sane?
I'm not the voice of sanity or anything...But when she does get the axe, (8 year co-worker) tell her you are willing to be a professional reference for her. That is one thing you can do, considering that she was the one that did a good job there. When I quit my last job because everyone else was being terrible, I was offered that by the accountant and the other manager who believed that I was the one doing the good job, and empthazied. It doesn't make the situation any more fair but at least she will have the validation of knowing she did the right thing, and when she moves into another position and they want to talk to someone at her last company that she spent a long time working with, they will have someone credible to talk to. In my situation at my last job, I'm not going to actually use them as references, or even indicate that I was employed there (too short term) but it was good knowing that people are there to back me up if I need the ref.

Professional references don't just come from old bosses, they can come from people you worked closely with.

Keep your head low and try to put on your invisibilty cloak for now warch.

I tanned for the first time in years last night. I am pink after only 10 minutes. And it itches. Yes, I used good (Swedish Beauty) lotion.

My work mouse has decided to send a double-click randomly when I click.

So I have bought a new home mouse and will take my home mouse to work, not only to get past this weird double-click nonsense but also to address my ever-present tendinitis.

That tug I felt in my stomach after my 2nd shot on goal Friday is now a little tender. But it should be fine. Now if only I could do something about this strange bulge I have sticking out of my abdomen to the left and just below my belly button.

Damn, I think I may have torn the muscle and have a hernia.

Ooh. Better get checked out there lookout!

I am not sure where to put this because I am irritated and almost upset about this mysterious bite I have.

I thought I was allergic to mosquitoes but now I have a mosquito bite that looks normal next to another bite that is forming a nasty sore and is swelling up my foot. This started happening when I moved here and I don't know if it's an allergic reaction to the area mosquitoes or if it is, in fact, a spider bite. Every time I get these bites I have massive swelling and a nasty sore that develops, it itches worse than anything ever, and if I scratch it, I feel like I am on fire. I went to the doctor and spent 250.00 cash and 250 more some odd dollars in billing for the doctor to circle the wound and tell me if the redness gets outside of the circle to come back.

It wakes me up at night it itches so bad...and it's just gross. I can't fit my regular shoe on so I need to put on a flip flop and hope I don't get bitten again. Sometimes it's worse than other times. I've seen spider bites and it looks close but never gets to where the venom eats up that portion of the body. I heal ok. You guys are lucky I have a crappy camera, I already tried to photograph it and my lens sucks, blurry...uuugh!

I have never see anything bite me...I usually wake up in the morning and start to itch...by 12 hours later I usually have an open sore that begins to develop. It doesn't happen to my husband so I assume I am allergic to something, if it were a poisonous spider it would bite him too. When I look closely there are two red dots where the skin is punctured, as it looks every time I swell up like this.

I can't spend 500 dollars out of pocket to get no where again...

Anyone know what it might be?!? Sound familiar? What is eating me alive?

Quoting myself:
~snip~I've seen spider bites and it looks close, but never gets to where the venom eats up that portion of the body.~snip~

I get an open sore but it heals after awhile and isn' that large. I saw that photo last year when I was looking for the solution to the problem.
