So apparently I am supposed to be less negative at the workplace as I am a “role model” and people “look to me for direction” and “take their cues from me”. And this is my problem because???? Also, they don’t pay me near enough to be a bloody role model for the rabble.

Anyway, I am taking this opportunity to spew forth the bile and bitterness that has accumulated yesterday and today so that I will emit only sunshine and light here at work.

1. why are you still wearing white pants??? It’s the fucking end of October for Chrissakes!!!! It’s not even like it’s a week or two past Labour Day — Halloween is 6 sleeps away. I know that white is more acceptable these days out of season, but I do believe that this “rule” applies to winter white, more cream, and to textiles like wool and silk, NOT cotton and linen.

2. personal hygiene; I am a HUGE fan. Buy some deodorant, please. If you can’t afford it, go to a shelter, they will give you some for FREE. Listen, you stink and I can’t be anywhere near you without retching.

3. open toed shoes (see 1, above). If it’s Saturday and not raining or snowing and you are at the beach or kicking round the coffee shop in loungewear, fine (sort of). But at work? With a suit? Or worse, nylons???????? ’nuff said

4. I don’t care that you are a “foreign student”. You are in Canada now. Get with the program.

5. I don’t get paid enough to put up with your crap.

6. you are NOT more important than me. or anyone, for that matter. get over yourself.

Okay, sunshine and light for here on in ……
