The Dicks You Know and Those You Don't Yet in These Foolish Things

Wow. Boss has turned back into his usual dick self. It has actually been going on since about week 2 of my return, so…approaching a month now. But he’s gotten especially dicky in the last week.

I won’t bore you with the details except to say that he’s known to be a somewhat shady character and he asked me to go around some people to get an answer that he wanted to hear and it BACKFIRED!! So it made a whole bunch of people look really, really bad (especially me). I will say that he owned up to it, so he didn’t lie, but he had to confess that he put me up to it.

So now, my company looks shady in the eyes of the big brand that I’ve been designing and developing products for! And all of this is on top of the GIANT sale of my stuff to a huge retailer (I won’t name names until the product is there in the store - it’s going to be major for the Holiday season!! Super excited!).

This will hurt my reputation, I’m sure, because it makes me look like a yes man, but Boss put me up to it, and now everybody knows. Ugh. Dick.

Still, I gotta have a job.

I haven’t forgotten to be scouting for a new opportunity. I’m still working on that. But it’s a wild environment out there right now and I don’t like working remotely, so it’s a bit of a bump, but this too shall pass or morph into something I can work with. And when I say “work with” I mean…a new gig.

I’m also still stalking that apartment. I guess this is how I roll. I’m kinda like this when I go on dating apps too - I internet stalk the shit out of them!

So, regarding the apartment, I actually found a couple more units in the same building that just might work for me AND I had the guy I know who lives there (I think I called him Wine-ish in the RAD I linked the other day) put in another word for me and asked about giving me a special on the prime apartment that has NO deals attached to it. Bottom line, I am working on the negotiation part of the whole deal. We’ll see how that goes. I’m going to have to get a good deal because of the lease break thing, you know?

And as far as dating app stalking, oh my gosh - I started chatting with this guy who says he travels full time and I was curious about how he’s doing that in a PANDEMIC?! He’s in a polyamourous D/s relationship and they are interested in another to travel with them??? LIke, WHERE?! No other country is going to let us sick Americans into their country! How can I travel with my poly peeps??

Well, I found him online. He’s a very well-spoken and well-known sports professional in a sort of “secondary” sport. That’s the only way I know how to put it. It’s the kind of sport that you know about, kind of like skateboarding or surfing, but that you probably don’t know the names of the top dogs in the sport.

ANYWAY. In addition to looking at photos of apartments, I’ve been viewing some videos of this guy and he’s well-spoken and seems kinda cool and I was even thinking he’s kind of sexy…

And then I was all, GINGER!! Are you having a seizure?! Why are you spending your time thinking about and internet stalking this weirdo who wants you to come travel with him and his submissive (or maybe HE’S the sub???) girlfriend?

Waste of precious time!

I’m chatting with another guy, though. I stalked him too. He’s handsome as hell and I found his ex-wife as well who is stunningly gorgeous and then kind of freaked out about how he’s too hot for me and then I was like, EFF that! Why wouldn’t he want to go out with me?! I’m more awesome than his gorgeous ex-wife, right?!

Yes, I’m losing it. Thank you for noticing.

Speaking of seizures (see my last entry about my SIL having an “episode” yesterday while I was cutting her hair), my brother took my SIL to the doctor today and the doc said that because she recovered so quickly after throwing up that she couldn’t have had a seizure. I call BULLSHIT on that. I know what I saw and it was CLASSIC seizure. Just because she doesn’t remember it doesn’t mean I didn’t see what happened. I am so worried about her. Fuck that doctor. Why won’t anyone believe me?

They probably think I’m losing it.

Well, I’m not… or am I?

I better go to sleep now. I’m nodding off.

Love and air hugs and kisses,
GS

Ugh! Your boss :-( . What a jerk.
I hope you get the apartment you want . Try out that handsome guy :-)
Scary about your SIL and the seizure :-(

Marg July 21, 2020

So what does he think happened to her? Did he come with anything? Your boss is a real asshole :(

Elaine Benes July 21, 2020

In the doctor’s defense I was going to say that too. You’re usually what they call postictal after a seizure. Really out of it for a while. And you described her more alert. What does he think happened? Just that she got sick and threw up?

I need to ask my brother that question because he was with her at the doctor's office. I think the problem is, my brother was so shocked by what I described he may think I was being dramatic, and my SIL doesn't really remember anything until the throwing up part. I know she was embarrassed too and just tried to brush it off, but after I finished cutting her hair, she had to go lie down for a good long while. I will see if my bro will tell me what the doc said. My mom couldn't explain it to me properly.

Could it have been a vasovagal episode maybe?

Ginger Snap pandora ⋅ July 21, 2020

Maybe. Maybe that's it. I hope it's a one-off.

Florentine July 21, 2020

Wtf, I have been the sole person to aid another during a seizure and while he was completely out of it during, when it ended, he was embarrassed and lucid and annoyed that he had to go into the hospital. (He is diabetic and had established care that knew about his seizures). So, yes, in my experience, too, someone can be “fine” following a seizure.

I hate when doctors dismiss people like that. Your sister in law deserves better respect and care.

Ugh. Your boss sucks! Xx

I am glad I'm not the only one who stalks apartments and people from apps. These days, the parallels between searching for a place to live and a person to date are increasing more and more.

Good to know that the polyamorous D/S industry is still thriving in the midst of the pandemic.
