Grrr...

This shouldn't be getting to me...but then, I've never been very good at shoulds.

I talked to my manager about cutting back on hours because of the stage managing gig (which is officially beginning on Saturday - yay!), and he started giving me a guilt trip about responsibility and whatnot. Apparently, he told one of the managers, George, who I really like, that I was essentially quitting. George passed a message along through one of my dormies (Jesse - someone I'm not all that fond of to begin with) that I wasn't allowed to quit. Jesse added that he didn't think I should, either - that it was "the right kind of job for me".

This, of course, led me into all sorts of self-whathaveyous, involving wondering if the only thing I'm cut out for is Commons work, serving food and working a cash register, etc., etc. Nobody needs that. I just got off the phone with my mother, which made me feel better, but still. Nyah.

And now, sleep. More coherence later, I hope.

I know how you feel. My work streses me out too sometimes and it shouldn't. But nobody can tell you what's good for you (and its not that hard to work a cash register, I know). They may be able to notice what you're good at, but they can't tell you what to do with yourself. If you want to do this play stuff, then they need to understand that, or you should just quit. If they think you're such a good worker, then they'll want to keep you and work with you on your schedule. You aren't their slave so don't let them make you feel like it.

I suspect that the high-ups are paid to give people guilt trips. Punks. As for Jesse, it seems that he's either a tool of The Man(TM), or a big Stupid-Head(TM). In any case, I think you're good for much more than Commons work, so there.

I'm not saying a word, not one word. But if you want my opinion... I'd say that both Dan and Jesse are in the category of big Stupid-Head(TM). But that's just me.

RYN in OD: I know you're not avoiding me, it's just my being depressed. But not so much any more. Don't mind me. ~pict

Grrr.....
Two things -

1.) You are a wonderful, marvelous, sweet, intelligent girl who has many talents and certainly is good for infinitely more things than working at Commons!

2.) Don't even get me started on Dan, or worse yet, Jesse.... Ignore those big stupid-heads (as they are apparently known), and focus on the other comments and the first half of this comment. :-)
