Karma, Bitch

01/04/2011

When I was fresh out of college I went straight to work where I had done my placement, I was sure this was the place I would work forever, it spoke to me, it was my CALLING!! Later I will find out I’m terribly wrong and my calling is totally in the opposite direction and around a corner, through a door, and down some stairs but we’ll talk about that another time. This was my CALLING!! I loved the people I worked with, I was making a name for myself, I had money, and I had purchased my very first car, I named her Mrs. Washington.
Then things started to change… my boss became moody, mean, emotional, we all walked on eggshells when she came to work, I was 22 and had never had a “career” before. She started bringing her personal life to work (and at 22 I was still outspoken so this just spelled disaster for me). I started rubbing my boss the wrong way (but not the way other people were rubbing her…) I became the brunt of her emotional abuse.
Eventually I learned of her corrupt nature, however, it was I who was asked to leave (my first lesson in how big business works).
The jabs and passive aggressive shots she threw at me daily taught me more than I could have ever learned in college and throughout my career I thought of it often.
She was fired this week and I can’t say that I’m sorry for her, but I do think of her searching for work like I did and wish her well, I also thank her for her twisted nature and teaching me to treat others fairly (or something).
