    Bullied you to what?
    Anger? Tears? The southern tip of Argentina?

    About half the time this boss is cool though. Doesn't cope well under pressure, snaps a lot, but at least she tries to have fun. Not like my boss from the Department of Transportation, who was a real bully. I still have nightmares of that #*$(&--the latest was last night, which then segued into a nightmare of Denny's. LOL However, as with just about any job, the importance of running the company takes precedence over the importance of the employee's family life. I'm actually dreading turning in my 2 weeks notice, because I know they will give me a guilt trip for it!

    Jamie, that would be fun! The burners are so much more fun than the Hot August Nights crowd (2nd busiest time of the year).

    Kristin, They can not MAKE you feel guilty. That will only happen if you allow it and DO feel guilty. Hugs

    When they try to guilt you, ask for some ridiculous amount of money.

    I know! Something I have to work on, my doormat complex and tendency to feel guilty about everything! I'm a lot better than I used to be, though. Ridiculous amounts of money would definitely help.

    Seems Denny's isn't getting rid of me quite yet. I didn't even have to bring it up with the manager, she asked right away if I wanted to go back to one night a week after Burning Man, or if I'd like to keep my current hours. I'm okay with one night. My co-worker isn't. She doesn't want this other girl taking my place, apparently she's a tweaker and drives her nuts. Sorry, but it's not my problem, gotta take care of my own health and family first!

    I know, I'm afraid I spoiled her with my wonderful non-tweaky personality. I actually took over the hours for a tweaky guy who came in to work drunk just a few times too many. She griped about him too, but lived through it. She has to work with tweaker girl tonight (whom I think is a nice person, just very hyperactive and talks nonstop ), because I have the night off. Hubby's company picnic is at Donner today, but I'm debating whether to just stay home and rest, because I'm tired. I've been to a few of the Donner parties (heh! I made a funny), and if you've been to one, you've been to 'em all. They're okay but not terribly exciting.
