Not In Charge

I've got a rule about blogging about work- I try not to do it. If I do it, I try to make it so generic that no one at my work could read it and feel like I am talking about them. So lately, I've not been blogging.

Here is why. I've been in charge of a costume shop for the last few months, and to be blunt- It has pretty much been the worst few months of my life. I have had to deal with almost every bullsh*t issue you can imagine. From grown women crying at work to grown men cursing me out in public. It has been one of the most stressful periods in my life to date. It *may* have even out-stressed the year my grandmother was dying, my father lost his job, my beloved dog died of bone cancer, and I had mono. Yeah, it's been that kind of few months.

There is good news. I am no longer in charge. The new person in charge is here, she is awesome, and she will deal with all this bs (hopefully) much better than I have been able to. If not, at least It's not me on the front line.

Some people have been asking me if I will be able to go back to my craft shop and be happy with my smaller income and less glamorous job title. The answer is one word:
YES.


And to celebrate- I'm gonna go do something totally immature and childish- I'm just not sure what that will be.

I think I've decided what it will be. I think *that* blog post is it. It was immature and unprofessional.
