i told hubby just the other day that my family just feel like memories sometimes

11. boss you hated- the one that told me "why dont ya kill it" referring to the child I was carrying in my womb- then she mocked the face i was making while i was crying , trying to carry out the rest of the work day- she was a bitch.
but she did try to redeam herself with me - trying to be nice to me later on and i spose i forgave her

11. Had a stupid assed manager, who tried to convince me

for all time, tried to get me drunk after work one night to
convince me to agree to take on a position I didn't want,
and was the company spy. She's gone and I'm still there Wait a minute, she's gone and I'm still there
