Old job lulz. - Suffering From Elation
A Survivor's Tale
Old job lulz.
MDI is looking for someone to do my old job, again. I wonder if they're expanding or if Demon-Woman drove away yet another designer? At just under two years, apparently I still hold the record for her longest-lasting assistant. I pity the poor bugger who gets to work with the Demon-Woman who criticises:

1. Your choice in partner;
2. Your choice in lunches;
3. Your weight (and then lack thereof when she starts feeling threatened by how fit and well you're looking);
4. Your tendancy to pause for a moment to think about what you're going to draw next. DO NOT STOP WORKING. PENCIL MUST BE IN MOTION AT ALL TIMES. THOUGHT IS NOT A FACTOR.

Just yesterday, walking to work, I was remembering how much I HATED fronting up for that job knowing she'd be breathing down my neck all day. Sometimes I'd cry on my lunch break just to vent some of the excess stress. Ugh!

On mornings when I don't feel like clambering out of my warm bed for my current job, I remind myself of the two years I spent working with Demon-Woman and suddenly it don't seem half so bad. And besides, with flexi-time I can sleep in for an extra hour those mornings anyway.

I pity the poor bugger who lands that job, and hope for their sake they have some iron-clad self-esteem. Shame, too - minus the supervisor, the job itself was great.

PS: The cakes (multiple) work gave me for my birthday were fantastic! I'm bringing the leftover half-cake home for tonight's festivities.
