I’m a stupid fuck-up, didn’t ya know?

Almost a year to the day that he fired me for telling him not to call me stupid, my boss started another fight with me this morning because I was late for work. Today’s onslaught of hurled insults included that I am stupid, lazy, a fuck-up, and a baby. Oh, and he feels sorry for me. I also learned that I make “hundreds of mistakes each week,” and everything that goes wrong at the paper is my fault. He also said that he would love to see me find a job better than this one, which is really funny because….

I GOT A NEW JOB!

Click “play”! Revel with me for a moment!

There are few moments in my life when I shed actual tears of joy – at weddings for my friends, when I watch the final moments of Super Bowl 36, when I’m driving to Patriots training camp…

I will now shed tears of joy knowing that I will never have to endure another one of Mean Boss’s tirades. He can no longer call me stupid, dumb, lazy, a baby, so on and so forth. He can no longer belittle me with insulting comments about how inadequate I am or how I can’t do anything right or say that it’s my job to come into work 12 hours after I had a D&C.

Oh yeah, I never told that little story about when I had my miscarriage three years ago and he made me come into work less than 12 hours after I had my Dilation and Curettage procedure against my doctor’s wishes, ON MY BIRTHDAY NO LESS, and told me I had to because “it’s not like you do anything. You just sit there.”

And this came a little more than two weeks after he told me I was “fucking stupid” to get pregnant from a “dirtbag” like my boyfriend. I bet he laughed when I lost the baby. I certainly wouldn’t put it past him.

Did I mention how he tried to fire me for having to miss a day to have my wisdom teeth removed? Or how he nearly fired me for having jury duty? Or how he insulted my entire family? See why I call him “Mean Boss”?

I am the POSTER CHILD for creating an emergency fund so that if you find yourself in a bad situation at work, you can quit.

But none of that matters anymore because on Monday I will be starting a new job at a truly AMAZING place with one of the nicest people I have ever met as my new boss. Oh boy, here come those elusive tears of joy again…

…and Mean Boss can put four newspapers together himself, which shouldn’t be too difficult because, according to him, I just screw it all up anyway.

    SO, Wilfork is boycotting OTA’s and he’s out of sight…hiding out on your banner?

  5. I put Wilfork up there to show my support.

    And yeah, the boss is a total jerk. You should have heard him today DARING me to find a better job as if no one would ever hire me. When I got my job offer two hours later, the woman could barely utter “Congra-” before I screamed, “YES! THANK YOU!” Perfect timing!

    You wouldn’t believe how nice my new boss is! She’s the antithesis of Mean Boss.

  6. Wonderful news. Fan-damn-tabulous. Good riddance. This is definitely one bridge worth burning, with napalm. Huzzah! And hell yeah, Hallelujah!

  7. Thanks, Michael. Whether I give notice or not, the bridge will be burned because he’s really vindictive. I’d never receive a good reference from him no matter what. But I’ve paid my dues and when I say my new job is at an amazing place, that’s an understatement. I don’t think I could have been any more lucky to get hired here! I can’t wait for Monday!

  8. Congratulations. Now that you no longer work for that dirtbag, why don’t you tell us who he is so we can let him know whata bully he is. Because nothing says loving like some sweet revenge.

    Did you tell the boss you are leaving?

  10. AWESOME!!! I AM TYPING THIS IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE IT IS SO AWESOME TO HEAR THIS NEWS AND THEY DON’T MAKE THE LETTERS BIG ENOUGH FOR ME TO EXPRESS HOW HAPPY I AM FOR YOU.

    IN READING YOUR STORIES ABOUT THAT PLACE I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU STAYED THERE AS LONG AS YOU DID.

    I CAN JUST IMAGINE THE SCENE WHEN YOU DROP THE NEWS ON HIM. ENJOY!!

    TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Congratulations, I hope it’s working out so well. It’s the end of August, 2009 and I will be at my new job for almost 30 days. The two bosses I have are so mean. I don’t know why. It’s the hardest job I’ve ever had.

  12. I can share a lot of these instances with you. People can be so rude, I just donít think they get it.
