A meager $250 bonus for 40 hours a week of being berated by the client's constituents over the phone for a year with this new company. Trying not to complain and I'm forgiving the fact that this IS a new company I'm with, but f*** me, if they just stopped being stingy and offered OVERTIME (or better yet, a RAISE) there'd be no need for such lightweight bonuses "every so often" for a "job well done". Talk about a lack of incentive. :-|

I'm tired of doing online searches for jobs, apartments, etc. and when I refine the results to Chicago or to the price of rent I want to pay, I get the results I want plus stuff I don't want. Don't show me results for Palatine or $1200 rent when I selected $800. Arrrgggghhh! So annoying! Someone needs to fix that.

Dear Metropolitan Transit Authority.

Screw you, and the horses you rode in on. In fact, GIVE ME that horse, so I can ride THAT to work and get in ON TIME. Because relying on YOU has made me late for the past THREE MONTHS thanks to a construction project you ADMITTED you failed to finish but have DECIDED to make life miserable for EVERYONE who uses a Metrocard to take the subway in an attempt to "finish quickly".

Fortunately for me, I have management who knows and understands that while *I* make a concerted effort to get to work on time, YOU SoB's have consistently countered my efforts and those of every other person who takes the subway.

I'd tell your chairman to kiss my natural black @$$, but he's too high up in the food chain to even hear it. That's alright, though.

That's what SHARPIE MARKERS are for. :-| #guerilla tags byatch

What is the point of uploading your resume for job applications and you STILL have to go back and edit the crap that was pulled from it? That's why I have a resume formatted and organized in the 1st place! DUH! And why do I have to answer questions (employment, education) when the information is ALREADY on my resume?! Grrrrrr!

I don't see my guy as much because he finally got a part-time job, so that's frustrating (I'm glad he's working, though...but still...)! We've been talking about getting apartment together but yet we're concerned that we don't have enough money. I'm just tired of waiting for the "right" time (for the stupid economy to improve/for us to get full-time jobs...that sh.it may not happen for years!).

You're so bitter. I don't know why you like to rain, hail, storm and suck parades up in tornadoes. I'm telling you about something at work at you begin to point out that I have bumps on my face. I guess I missed them even though they are on MY face. And then when I get mad you act like the victim. You need to stop.

You already know I got those types of comments from this same person. I've never said anything to them about their weight yet they thought it was their duty to tell me about my weight. And it was always in the most random and inappropriate ways. And they swore they said it in some nice, sweet and concerned way. BS

Well, dayum. I'm glad having a real discussion on NP isn't important because if respectfully acknowledging and/or confronting a relevant cause (of the consequences/symptoms being discussed) which affects all of us is derailing a thread, it is no longer a wonder why we so rarely seem to have substantive discussions here anymore.

You can't tap dance around real stuff just because someone you love and respect is behaving in a manner that may be frowned upon. If that's not the case, you really need to revisit all of the posts I was in my first two years and ban those hateful people who actually did derail threads (which may still be open) to come for me. There wasn't any love from them to begin with and none lost from me, but I for damned sure didn't see anyone diving to break stuff up unless I stood up for myself, they didn't like it, and/or someone called in the e-goon squad and still couldn't shake me. If people can't be real about their behavior, just because someone else can't abide by it, they can use hypotheticals.

BTW, if criticizing a mod action of the sort is going to get me banned, make it so that I can still donate on the sly. =) Otherwise, let's keep this party going. I haven't been impressed by NP in a long time, but I also haven't been so disappointed here in as long.

Since when did doctors get so damn lazy? Every. Little. Thing. Wrong. is the result of someone's weight. The fact that the standard tests all confirm that said subject (me) is well within the normal ranges for a skinny (therefore automatically healthy) person of the same age is irrelevant. You (I) are (am) overweight, therefore your (my) problems (all of them) stem from gluttony and sloth. :-|

That's why I challenged your a$$ and asked what would you say if I were a healthy weight--- no wonder you started stuttering like booboo the fool. You know you were being foul, which is why you ordered more tests to be done and gave me another appointment. :-|

EVERYTHING is about your issues--my friend passes away and all you want to know is why you didn't meet her and how come you don't know her and how old she was and THEN you make a snarky comment about her weight? SCREW YOU!!

I *actually* don't want to go home now because I know when I get there that first of all, the house will be full of people I don't like. Second, as soon as you get a chance it'll be 99 questions trying to make me give you a definite schedule of my life so you can constantly make co-opting comments and actions. And if I shut you down, no matter how pleasantly, it'll be hurt feelings and BS all day. UGH! I LIKE MY LIFE. IT IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. GO PISS ON SOMEONE ELSE'S PARTY!!! I am so. Tired. Of. You. Your house is nice, but you are a chicken fried negative mess on wheels with b!tch pudding and bitter sauce. You suck the life out of everything you touch and then get mad when folks decide they've had enough.

Ok, black folks can really get ridiculous. Why did this heffa show up at the Y tonight. New member. She has her membership Id, but daughter #1 needs to take a pic so she can get her ID. So far no big deal.

Well daughter #2 has an ID, but doesn't have it with her. So I gotta look her up. Annoying, but ok, no big deal.

Then she has two unrelated kids with her. They're under 19 so they have to pay a $3 youth drop-in fee. And that starts the big deal. From here, the conversation goes like this...

Lady: "Nobody told me that. They said I could have guests."

Me: "Well, if your guests are under the age of 19, they have to pay a $3 youth drop in fee. Adults, who are not members can be offered three free visits within a calendar year and then we ask that they become a member."

Lady: "Well they should have told me that when I joined. I just wanna go in there and work out and have people leave me alone. Nobody told me about my guests having to pay $3. They said they could get in free."

Now, this lady is really showing out, getting loud and errythang. Ain't NOBODY told her that mess. I'm the newest person there and even I know the guest/youth drop-in policies like the back of my hand. So I show her the sign that's sitting right on the counter that explains the drop-in/guest policy. What I suspect is that she's getting certain aspects of the adult/youth policy confused and getting it twisted that her 12-year-old guests should be able to get in free.

She finally relents and leaves. About 10 minutes later she comes back with a $10 bill. Dag and BIG TIME OOPS. My bad cause I should have told her that we don't make change, and she had to have exact change in order for me to process the drop-in fees.

Now y'all know I'm in for it. When I tell her, and I'm apologizing profusely, she is just so out done that she continues where she left off about how her guest should be able to get in free.

At this point, one of our fitness instructors pulls out his wallet to see if he can break her ten dollar bill. He can't. And then, out of the blue, another member whom I had been trying to help and has been there long enough to witness the whole thing full circle, stepped up and just gave miss thang $6. Now miss thang is looking at her like, "Do I have to give you my $10?"

The good samaritan shakes her head and says "No, this one is on me."

I look at miss thang and tell her, "Now that's a major blessing. Let's get the kids processed so you can go in and get your work out on, okay girl?"

After the lady leaves the counter, she remarks that they lady is off her rocker cause she knew those kids couldn't get in free before she came in. I just laugh and nod in agreement. But I also thank her as well cause she surely did NOT have to do that.

And so, and yeah, my whole entire night seemed go just like the scenario above.

Black folks...um, just yeah.

Just completed a survey for my company. One question asked--in loose terms--if we get paid "enough" to do what we do (which is sit on our @$$es all day and answer the phone--that's it).

I clicked "STRONGLY DISAGREE" for the following reasons.

For one, as big a client as the one I'm working at is, there's NO comprehensible reason beyond that of being cheap why we're being paid up to $8 less than other rival and large outsourcing companies with equally large clients (i.e., JP Morgan, Deutschebank, UBS, etc.). Coupled with the fact that the client has made managing the phone lines more difficult than necessary with their refusal to provide accurate information in regards to updated staff listings, additions of new departments, etc. This is in addition to also refusing to give us more to do than sit here all day, and the hypocritical rules they come up with every other week that they want us to enforce but refuse to explain when asked to clarify. I won't even get into the part where we're expected to perform tasks best left to security and concierge personnel who are paid to do such things as check IDs, provide escorts, verify alarms, etc. Not to mention being told to kowtow and mollycoddle the "talent"(LMFAO.) who behave no better than spoiled and unruly children most days and try to bully us into running their errands for them. (Which they say we're not supposed to do, because they all have assistants or access to interns or freelancers. :-|)

I say, if they--meaning the corporate offices for my outsourcing company--expect us to put up with the f*ckery that the client demands us to, they should compensate us financially, both with annual raises and overtime (which they've been stingy with from the jump), and make it easier to accrue vacation days and eliminate their BS "use or lose" policy regarding vacation days. ALSO--and I have no qualms or guilt saying this--reduce the number of people and shift the work schedule back to Monday through Friday, three shifts and return the weekends to part time, also three shifts--which is what it used to be before they took over-slash-STOLE the contract from my previous company.

While this is no reflection on my immediate management (who has been infinitely better than who I've worked for in the past), the situation and environment with this particular client as a whole is unsatisfactory, has been unsatisfactory since July of last year, and unless they change, NOTHING will change. Which is sad to say the very least, because we don't ask for anything but an appreciable workload and for them to tell the anchors to stop treating us like go-fors. And that if they really want us to do their work for them, to hire us!

Therefore, after receiving the training I demanded from HR and immediate management next month, I'll be requesting a new client to work at/with/for. It'll suck, because there are people at my current client that are really cool and the travel time from my home is the shortest it's going to get. However, I'm willing to sacrifce that for something better elsewhere.

...And yes, all of this will be discussed at the next review and-or staff meeting. :-|

I love natural hair products. I hate natural hair mavens who run their businesses like a backyard fish fry. I have to wait for you to get back in stock OR pay the markup at Curlmart or some other place? You are already charging hefty bucks for this stuff! I'm willing to pay, I am not willing to chase you down like I'm doing you a favor! I'm looking at you, Qhemet. I'm glad the Nubian Heritage line is out and I can get Shea Moisture near my house b/c I AM DONE. Y'all have lost thousands, hope you're happy.

^^^I think they're doing that because they know they'll make more from selling the marked up products through other shops rather than directly from the website. Which would totally explain why the site has been "out of stock" for as long as it has. Bullocks, either way--and they lost a potential customer out of me, because I was interested in trying their products. Not anymore. If I can't buy products like this direct from the owners, then I won't buy at all. :-|

Maybe I am crazy but I always thought that if a person is frustrated enough with something it is on that person to talk to the appropriate party to suggest a solution. But today one of the (white) women I supervise told me that I should have perceived she was frustrated about something and come to her to ask her if there was anything she wanted to do to resolve the situation.

I dunno. The markup is only a couple of bucks, it's the shipping for those funnel companies that is through the roof. Even if they get a dollar out of the two buck markup, considering all the money they lose when people can't go directly to the site it isn't worth it. Plus, the funnel companies are hardly in stock themselves! That fb page for qhemet is ridic. It's basically a bunch of angry villagers going "when are you restocking x store or y website?" Their ish is good but not that good. I'll be damned if I'm going to beg and then pay :*\.

Dear sis.

2 months ago when she wanted to meet you I cringed. I said nothing to her about your issues. I was hoping that you would be on your best behavior when we all had lunch together to finally meet. You said that you would not embarrass me and would be on your best behavior.

I. was. so. wrong.

I was so wrong that after we parted ways, I was taken aside and asked if you always acted like a self-absorbed, insecure *** with an obvious drinking problem. I was told that they now understood why we do not see much of each other, even though we live less than a mile apart from each other.

I was so mortified that I was almost in tears and apologetic for the next 6 hours wondering what the **** was it all about. You made me sound as if i was a raging alcoholic, chain-smoking ***** that tormented you in one fashion or another for the last 23 years. Only you were not counting on the fact that maybe, just maybe after 25 years and getting some therapy that your very animated yet humorous diatribe was seriously outdated and that my silence was not because I could not get back you in the same fashion but~ why would I when you were clearly doing a fine job all by yourself showing the world that you have some serious unresolved issues?!

Sexual innuendos and repeated punchlines beginning with "And the lesson learned that you do not do ________ while having a hangover..." does not make for appropriate conversation for someone who is >< close to turning 40. Talking about how you need to move to a new city because you dated all the single and some of the married men in this town and their wives and other women see you as a threat is not an impressive feat nor appropriate conversation to someone you just met.

Telling the person that you have been dropping their name around town because they are associated with me to impress others is not appropriate and make you look desperate as hell for attention.

It was indeed the longest lunch I have endured...to the point I was having heartburn during lunch and I had not even finished my salad. 1.5 hours of sheer hell.

To top it off, you then call me on my company phone 2 hours later to tell me that you enjoyed lunch and that we all have to get together again, knowing full well that I have customers in the proximity and I could not tell you off for your lunchtime ****ery...not that it would have mattered if I did. Your motives were pretty clear.

Yes you need to move. As far away from me as possible.

1. When you do talk about how you hate hypocrites and are one yourself don't expect me to join you. I know your *** is gossiping about me behind my back.

2. You holier-than-thou muslims can kiss my shorts, you are not God so shut the **** up. Just because I am pierced and tattooed doesn't mean I'm wild, get your snotty noses out of my face.

3. Ex bf, no I will not let you back into my life and do the bullshit you are suggesting, the fuk is that?

You know...the difference between doing a fun creative and a job is now I have to think but since it's being called a "test" you aren't paying me for it. I'm not down with that. I wanted to do whatever and have some fun, I have real jobs with pressure and expectations all the rest of the week. I don't need an unpaid creative project - shooting on a Holiday no less - to be as mentally involved as a job would be.

I wish I could tell you how WORRIED I am about you. You keep talking yourself into these false epiphanies when the problem is right there, staring you in the face, eating up your food, using up your utilities. Yet you won't issue an ultimatum, or do what needs doing to keep your life going without his help. You keep depending on him to step up at the last minute, and he never does, and you wind up in the same position, again and again.

You keep saying that your prayers are being answered at all the wrong times...your prayers are being answered at the right times...you're just not listening to the answers.

I am SCARED for you. And I am angry too.

There are some of us with lives outside of this dayum store. I get that you don't have one but the rest of us do. If someone doesn't want to take your stupid weekday shift then they don't have to. Stop bytching about it. Stop acting like they are the ones in the wrong. Your hours, your responsibility. And no coming in a hour earlier isn't unreasonable but if someone doesn't want to then they don't have to. Who is winding down before working at 2:30pm? I guess someone that doesn't have a life. Maybe you just sit around all day until it's time to go in but many don't.



I'm not really sure why I'm hearing from you more lately. You pretty much pushed me out of your life. You didn't tell me about your marriage, lied about some things, took someone else's word over mine, stopped responding to texts and emails and started to come off like you were better than me or couldn't fool with me because I wasn't on the same path as you. Now you're texting me and sending me pics of you and the new baby (that you didn't personally tell me about) and commenting on stuff on FB. What's up with that? Do you see the rest of us keeping in touch and you feel left out? Are you seeing that those other folks weren't/aren't really your friends? Are you coming down off of your "I'm such a great person to everyone" high horse? Is your relationship rocky and you want true friends again? I figured you and I weren't really friends anymore and have already started to grieve the friendship and move on. It made me really sad for a while and I missed you all but I accepted that you didn't want to be friends. Too little to late? IDK.

No, no, no. Return of proper courtesy is not indication that I want to have a conversation with you. Especially if I'm just emerging from the train station, shoving through the unwashed masses and their offspring that attend the nearby high school to get to the job I'm borderline late for and you already know I am not going remotely humor you beyond "hello" and "goodbye". I wasn't interested in you back then, I'm DAMNED SURE not interested in you now. GTFO of my way, dude. Seriously. And stop trying to pick up another man's woman. :-|

Okay, so, since you're a self-appointed authority on who "looks black" from who doesn't, tell me: what are black people supposed to look like? Because from what *I* learned and researched, the African continent his home/host of thousands of tribes that all have varying facial features, body types and even hair textures that varied well before slavery, well before colonization, well before interactions in Meso-America and South Asia. We don't all look alike, contrary to what you and Ol' Massuh of Society wants to think. Never have, and never will. Deal with it. :-|

I don't take isht off people very well. If you come at me cross-eyed and off the cuff for no reason, you will get it back just like you gave it to me.

Back the hell up.

Line dance class tonight. I'm in the back trying to help this young asian lady get the steps. I'm counting out loud to help her get the steps. At one point I count incorrectly.

A young woman in the front, turns around and gives me the nastiest stank-eye look. Our eyes meet. My quick, gut reaction was, "Why are you looking at me like that?!!!!!:(o)

Her: "You messed up!!!!" All loud. :(o)

Me: "So what!!!!!" Giving it back the way it came. :(o)

Her: Just keeps dancing.

Me to self: Geeeesh.:-|

So someone answer this question for me. Why would you (an adult) go to the gym with $60 in cash in your purse and NOT lock it up. Then get mad when someone steals it. Yes this is the Y. And yes this is a Christian facility. But just because it is doesn't mean that folks are following the "Thou Shalt Not Steal" commandment. It also doesn't mean that we let known rapists, murderers and thieves in either. And no you can't go looking on the grainy video tape from the security camera and accusing someone who happens to walking in or out of the locker room at the time you THINK your money was stolen. It doesn't work that way.
