Me and Olivia Pope are dismissing you.
So sometimes my stoop is like the party stoop where the locals get loud and get high. Well I usually just try to get into my apartment undetected because I don’t wanna make waves.
So tonight, me and the boy were walking to a restaurant around the block so we obviously had to walk down the party stoop. We made it mostly unscathed until this girl with swirly hair was all, “hi!”
And I, naively, took the bait and said, “hi.”
To which she responded, “she speaks.”
Like they’re all in on me being some snooty broad that is too good to talk to them. So I just alpha-stared her down, but the point is really that I know this bitch is gonna be a problem and god I just wanted a nice chicken dinner what the hell?
I need you to know that I’ve spent no less than 2 hours lamenting the “dying for ice cream” to “but i want to be skinny” ratio happening in my head.
It’s like 50* outside and I do not understand how to layer in this weather. I’m basically wearing a giant cardigan and a ski resort coat, and it’s hot now and I just want to crawl back into my room, past piles and piles of filthy laundry that I was too sick to do last week and sleep until 4 or maybe 5.
It’s not so much that I go from loving to hating my jobs. I actually should do a stand-up routine for being a serial job hopper. It’s mostly that in a city this big, you find a lot of different kinds of businesses, but one major theme is a lack of professionalism. I mean to say that a lot of “moderately successful” companies are ran by people who run their business like a high school and take pride in their high turnaround rate. I think that mostly stems from there being so many start-ups and so much opportunity that people who should not be running businesses get a streak of luck without having to grow into those roles and responsibilities. What really sucks is that most of these jobs will be high paying (no benefits, ever), but the people make it unbearable.
In this particular case, I am torn about what to do. The pay is ridiculous (in the best way), and it’s a small office, which I appreciate. However, I find that my boss has extreme moods and is so scared that this business won’t be successful that he takes it out on those of us working really hard to make it happen. So really, I’m just trying to decide if I think it’s worth it for a little while longer, or if I should do what I am great at and find another better position that fills my needs for a period of time.
