Well, as far as what happened with my previous post, well that all blew over. I was sort-of in my opinion asked to disassociate myself from a dear friend of mine to get further with my job. Well wait, not get further but get along better with other employees. Now to me that was questioning my character and integrity. I was supremely offended. Yes for my friend who is seemingly singled out by a majority of the staff (seemingly because I see how she can feel that way but I am not sure why yet they treat her like they do) but more so for me that they thought that I would even consider such a thing. And later because they tried to claim noble intentions.
How do you wrap your mind around the notion that it is an extention of friendship to ask a person to drop a long time friend to hang out with the "cool kids". It's f***ed up that people presume that because they are in the majority in a situation that they are in the right. Well sometimes there is no right. Sometimes everyone just has a different perspective, personal preferances and personalities. Sometimes people have delusions of granduer.
Anyway it all blew over and everyone is fine. I think I am respected a little bit more for the way I stood up for the two of us. I have no hard feelings towards anyone, I am just baffled by the thought process that spawned the actions.
It's been a busy few weeks. Coordinating a company wide workshop, working on 2006 budgets and 2005 year end reports...all sorts of fun. That accounts for my sporadic posting, that will change and I will get back to grazing your pages too, I have a lot to catch up on.
