The Menstrual Monster

So I've been down lately. 10 points and a choccie if you noticed it. Work has sucked arse lately. I think I've said that recently. I've been hammered for crap that seems insignificant lately. And when I make one decent mistake its all been blown out of proportion and been taken to the top. Past the supervisor, past the director, and to the directors boss. For one standard mistake. Neither of my superiors are privvy to the decision to take it that far.

On top of all that crap I was isolated because Mr BM doesn't like the forked tongue, and was playing the lower staff off against each other. I stayed head down and did my work, but eventually she came to the conculsion that I wasn't doing my share of the menial work. Even though it is at least a two person task, and four out of five days a week there were a choice of three of us (myself included) doing it. And went straight to the directors boss with that one too.

Last week I was working in another persons area. This person is one of the people who has contributed to the feeling of being isolated. And some of the oversights I have seen in there... JEEBUS. If I went through shit she'd be arse raped over it. So I fixed her ovesights, no problems.

But I spoke to the good supervisor too. He is aware of whats been going on. Its been really hard dealing with all of the double standards that this place has thrown at me. He was encouraging though. Everyone is aware of whats been going on, and everybody feels really bad about it. The girl that I went to him about with the problem is 'feeling protective' of me. Throughout this I was crying. Gorgeous has a gift of offering advice that seems especially poignant, no matter what is going on in my life, and expecially when I don't ask for it.

So the combination of the crying and the conversation is making me feel better.

The poem was my first clue. What can I redeem my points for?

Its like fly buys. You need about a million points to get anything decent. 10 points will buy you one of my hairs. Place of origin is up to you. But it doesn't cover postage.
