I can't even-- not with the day that I've had.

I don't like to bitch and complain especially on a platform such as this, but sometimes it's unavoidable.

We recently got a new supervisor in our department. He's an alright guy but I don't have the rapport that I had with the previous supervisor (yes, he was an royal arsehole but I knew how to handle him, and I usually didn't mind when he teased me, because in 3 years, I was able to read him and what he said, between the lines and the whole nine yards). Well this supervisor really doesn't know me yet, and when you first meet me, I am like a cat that just sits back and observes you. I don't impress someone with my crazy enfpness right off the bat (I blame it on the fact that I'm a virgo-- so you have to tread very closely with me unless I instantly recognize you as a kindred spirit)

Well first of all Owen came in early, and so Mike (the supervisor) went up to him and was like "Your woman is picking so don't distract each other"

Okay, okay-- I can see that. But then as the day progressed, I noticed a trend...

I was being referred to as "Owen's Woman" by him. He didn't say it to my face, but he said it to other people including Owen. EXCUSE ME! I HAVE A NAME-- IN CASE YOU DID NOT KNOW, I AM CALLED NIA! But it was "Owen's Woman.. ad nauseum"

Granted, I am proud to be Owen's, just like he is proud to be mine. But for jesus fucking sake, this is work-- we are supposed to be PROFESSIONAL up in here-- but I guess somewhere along the line, the memo got lost. So I was enraged about that-- as well as the fact that I was being pushed to pick faster when there are people in our department who do little to know work-- You know, I'll pick faster when it doesn't require Michael fucking Stalcup to have THREE people over there to help his line, because all he can do is stand around and surf the fucking internet or wandering around like he lost his lambs. (no seriously-- his line is his own but he drags his ass so that he can get people over there to help-- yeah talk to me about picking faster and I'll tell you where to shove it)

Okay, taking sip of tea-- deep calming breath

Cindy, the order control lady told me that Mike was just 'joking'. You don't joke with me right off the bat, you earn that shit. You earn it by being who you say you are, by acting with integrity and treating me with respect.

Though it was funny to hear Owen say "I'm moving to LTL"; and with me eventually moving departments too-- I won't be stuck there forever, just have to wait until the new client comes in so that I can take the order control position back there, I will be moving to reunite with my old supervisor, and seriously while he is a stress bucket, I can handle him.

Sorry-- that was totally not a very fun post.

Most of the time, [community profile] fandom_secrets has secrets that really aren't relevant to my fandoms or interests but I hit upon a Snape one and I was like "Seriously?". It's like 24/7 Snape bashing on that thread. From a writer's standpoint I can see why people would hate Snape but I can see where he DID NOT get what he wanted in the end.

Snape had a cruddy childhood, the worst possible that you could imagine and I believe that he was on the wrong path anyways and he got to school and was bullied which in turn made him a bully but Lily befriended him and put a small bit of humanity within him. Rejected yes and then when events went down, well he only was protecting Lily's son in her memory, not because he had any sort of love for James' son. (I do like to think that there was something about Harry that was indescribably Lily's, perhaps his smile or his eyes.. idk something that would make it easier for him to want to protect him.)

In the end he died and it was exactly what he deserved. And I'm not saying this in a 'eat penguin shit, snape" sort of way, but rather he had protected Lily's son to the best of his abilities and he didn't have any use anymore. For someone who went his entire life without being loved, well.. I'm not excusing his behavior but neither am I condemning it either.

But character hate is alright, it's something. I think that as far as characters go.. love them or hate them.. the worst is to be ambivalent to them. So if J.K Rowling makes some people hate Snape, well then she did her job amirite?

Fandom, serious fucking business!

So I was printing out labels for the products received and there was a piece of box tape sticking to one of the labels and my hands were filled so I leaned down to try to grasp it with my teeth and the tape caught my lip and ripped skin off.. ouch ouch ouch!

It is so painful.. like woah!
