Why do I always seem to land in the worst possible job positions? I was really cooking along for the past 20 months in my current job, thinking this could be the one job I'd stick with for 5-7 years before moving to Hawaii. Then yesterday.....all hell broke loose.
Why do some bosses seem to think they can harrass you? What makes my boss think I will remain in a position where I am called "a f**king moron" and where I'm threatened with being fired for not understanding some random command he throws at me? Really. Why do physicians in particular have such a problem controlling themselves? And WHY DO I ALWAYS WORK FOR THE WORST OF THEM?!
I took the day off today. Without notice. I will not be treated like that. I have more respect for myself than to put up with being trod upon. Isn't it the snake that says 'don't tread on me'? I've had lawyerly discussions about many a previous boss's heavy-handedness, and left many a previous boss in the dust. This snake has fangs....But why does it keep happening? I don't want to use my fangs. I want to work a happy job, live a happy life. I don't get it.
I've come to the conclusion that I must have 'sucker' written across my forehead, and 'kick me' written across my back.
Okay, I know that not everyone reading this blog will enjoy my crybabying, reality though it is. So, on to the knitting, of which I happily got some done today! I was on Ravelry at 4 AM (with puffy swollen red eyes, I might add) and found some very cool things.
One is this great knitting booklet from Sweden (oops, I mean Norway, thanks Carola!). Scroll down to see all the patterns for beautiful gloves, mittens, and socks. I really would like to score a copy of this book, even though I'm sure it's written in non-English! Wouldn't you think the patterns are charted....? If anyone knows where I could get a copy, please let me know. That would be incredible!
A beautiful knock-off sweater from a Victoria's Secret sweater. It's cabled, and there's a whole blog page about similar patterns here! It's in French, but look at the amazing photos of cabled A-line sweaters.....Wonderful collection!
And I found this cute sideways sock on Magknits. Never saw this before...scroll down to see the piano key version!!! I'm as big a sucker for piano key designs as I am for patriotic designs! Cute.
Really into peacocks right now. Don't know why. Might be due to this pattern(scroll down), but this past weekend I had to have these earrings:
Gaudy as all get-out, I know, but they are hinged and look really cool! ;o
And while I was browsing ravelry, I also visited Tejemanejes. Haven't been to that site in a while, but I found this really cool hat pattern, with links to many other hat patterns at the bottom! I love the fair-isle hats.
Well, I'm looking at another nice day off tomorrow. Hopefully the sun will shine again. Will try to get some knitting done. I may have plenty of days off ahead if this job falls apart. We'll see on Monday what's up.
