So, what an interesting couple of days I have had. I have been working part time in an embroidery shop for about 2 years. The owner/the boss is an absolute miserable man. I am not the type to hate...but he has pushed my limits. My 2 co-workers (only 3 of us and him) and I have formed a wonderful friendship and I have grown to love them. Without getting mad again, and telling you all of the horrid things he does to his workers and customers...I will just say this, I only stayed in this job because of my "girls". I know what you are thinking, that is no reason to stay in a job you do not enjoy. But I did. I have never disrespected him, he would have to face one for that to happen... and always did a good job. That is what I do.
So yesterday I was blindsided when he called me into his office (near closing time) and said I no longer had a job there. He was bringing back a former employee, who was now ready to work again. For the record he has re-hired her 3 times now. Mind you, school time is the busiest time for this shop, with school uniforms. We were working very hard for weeks...now as business will slow, he will rid me of this job. AFTER I busted my hump... he has known of this for weeks and chose not to share with me. So a full day of sitting on my pity pot, I see this as a new beginning for me. My mom is facing heart surgery mid August, and she is in Pa. so now I will be free to go and visit. After this is all over, I will look for another part time job, and I will be ok. My friendships with these 2 will be forever...he can't take that away from me.
So I shall work hard making new art pieces, devote more time to my shops and hopefully stay busy enough to stay out of trouble. lol I understand that fretting and being so angry, only gives the power to HIM. I am learning ways to get beyond that and not give him any thought. Good luck to me...
Just a personal story I felt I wanted to share.
