SHE’S A B!TCH


So yesterday I was wondering what makes someone become a B!TCH? I am thinking that we were all born with a certain set of compassion AND understand for each other; yet somewhere along the way we somehow loose that. How does this happen? These questions brings me to the INTERESTING DAY I HAD @ WORK YESTERDAY. I’ve been working for a month now and I am trying to grasp the ANTIQUATED, NON-PRODUCTIVE and F&CKED UP system the company has going on. First and foremost there is NO job description so EVERYONE is pretty much just doing whatever and I get that there is NO real sense of direction in this place (sadly this is the state of 99% of the businesses here in the Bahamas). So after getting the tasks done that my boss kept piling on me (whose job I can do with relative ease by the way), I noticed this fax on my desk. I took it to her knowing full well that she was going to have a Chinese baby right in front of me (she had two by the way) and they were both breached. So there was a problem with a shipment and the company was letting us know that we were past our credit line and that though the items weren’t due for payment we needed to make a payment. Now me in my INFINITE wisdom, I asked her well how do you handle this stuff? She looked me dead in the eye (which later she explained that she looked @ me funny because she had a stiff neck) and told me that this is my problem and that I need to take care of it. Now I am the kind of man that wears what he is thinking on his face (especially when shit is first spewed in my direction) so I know she saw that. The thing about this situation is that the general manager and director orders stuff like there is a fire sale and don’t inform us in accounts of what they are doing. However, I am supposed to know what they are doing even when they don’t know? So as my boss was carrying on I tried my hardest to choose words that were diplomatic while getting my point across (and she got the message loud and clear). I kept thinking if I didn’t need this job LORD KNOWS! I couldn’t wait for my lunch to come and when it did I came home to get a change of scenery and clear my head. It was then I remembered that my horoscope had said that there will be conflict for the first half of my day, I don’t pay attention to that stuff but I thought to myself that they maybe onto something…Nonetheless, after my lunch my boss called me into her office and told me that she just wants me to understand how important things are and if something goes wrong heads will roll. I just stared @ her and said that I DON’T NEED YOU TO SPEAK TO ME IN THE WAY YOU DID BECAUSE I AM LEARNING HOW DO THINGS HERE (WHICH IS SO F&CKED UP!) OF COURSE YOU KNOW I DIDN’T WORK FOR THE REST OF THE DAY & ANY FEELING OF GOODWILL THAT I FELT TOWARDS THE COMPANY HAS BEEN KILLED. SHE LOVES STAYING BEHIND WORKING LATE, TRYING TO GET ME TO STAY…BUT YESTERDAY MY ASS WAS GONE BY 5:30 WHICH THE TIME I LEAVE THAT PLACE…BUT I AM GLAD THAT SHE WAS A B!TCH BECAUSE IT MADE ME SEE THAT I DON’T WANT TO MAKE A LIFE HERE WITH NOEL IN THE BAHAMAS & I REALIZED THAT I HAVE JUST HAVE A JOB THAT DOESN’T OFFER ANY BENEFITS, NO MEDICAL, THAT MAKES ME WORK 8 HOURS A DAY THAT INCLUDES A LUNCH HOUR WHICH THEY DON’T PAY ME FOR…YEAH @ $400.00 A WEEK I LOVE DEALING WITH A B!TCH THAT MAKES $1,200.00 A WEEK THAT CAN MORE THAN MAKE MY ENDS MEET…AIN’T WORKING WITH A B!TCH JUST A JOY?

  1. Ag gayte-keeper, there are plenty of people who are bosses who should not be occupying those seats, but what can we say?

    Re: your question? You say we were all born with a certain set of compassion and understanding but that somehow we lose that along the way. I think that like everything in life, human beings possess both good and bad qualities but that one quality will be the dominant one in a person, and that's what constitute that person's character. So based on which is the stronger quality, we'll know that person as either good or bad; nice or not so nice; compassionate or heartless, etc. I do not believe that it is possible for a good heart to change along the way. Where there is light, darkness finds it hard to operate.

    But back to your boss, it's possible that either she's just not a nice person; that being in a position of authority has made her drunk with power or that she feels inferior to you and therefore is jealous of you, that could explain how she interacts with you at times.

    And as for you my dear gayte-keeper, you simply deserve the best.

  6. I don't know what makes a bitch but I know that they do have a heart. Pity they only show it to few people.

  7. Wow... this is like my first time actually being invited into your life. Most of the time I am usually reading words of wisdom, but this is a pleasant surprise! AND BOY CAN I RELATE! The BIG difference between you and I is that that innocent light of amiability, sensitivity, and openness that I showed toward my co-workers and supervisor highlighted my downfall. It was a high time that completely led the way toward the weeks I spent in darkness: crying and discovering that no matter how sweet and innocent you are, people will still be mean. :P I HATE BITCHES. (shows teeth aggressively)

  9. Dman if I didn't know any better i would swear you worked in my office; I have a male bitch that acts just like your manager/supervisor.

    I read the comments you often leave for others and you enlighten, educate and offer advice in so many areas, but what is admirable is that you take your own advice. It shows great character.

  12. Don't you just hate that gayte! Crazyness...people in higher power are the TRUE bitches and feel that is needed to justify their bullshit. Other people have chimed in that they can relate so hopefully that helps. I know how you feel too because the girl who is my manager at school is a real shady bitch. Oh well lol. I do what I am supposed to then leave.

  14. "Sometimes being a bitch is all an ol' girl has to hold onto." ~~ Delores Claiborne

    Well, the quote goes something like that. But it kinda works here. Maybe your supervisor is miserable, and as another saying goes -- shit flows downhill.

    As Xivinrah said, sometimes no matter what you do people will be mean. My favorite saying came from my neighbor when I told her how someone stole my plant off the porch -- she said succinctly, "People suck!" and went back inside.

    So true. Especially since she's probably the one who stole it. That year I shoveled the snow in front of her house and gave her a Xmas card. She probably looked at my plant tucked away in her house and felt like shit. LOL

    Kill 'em with kindness. They feel guilty, you feel superior and get an extra bounce in your step.

    It's a win win situation. Good Luck .......

  15. She is an inefficient and incompetent manager. You were never given a job description and your training was lacking to say the least. Not everyone who wears the title of manager knows how to manage and she is obviously one of them.
    I think you've adopted the best approach when dealing with her be firm and be direct and maybe she'll learn a thing or two about how to manage people.
