No woman wants an abortion like she wants an ice cream cone or a Porsche. She wants an abortion like an animal caught in a trap wants to gnaw off its own leg.
Work thing went off without a hitch! So crazy the event that I’ve been planning for five months is over! I am incredibly excited to sleep tonight without running through to do lists and to enjoy a (relatively) quiet morning tomorrow before heading into the office.
Make all your decisions based on how hilarious it would be if you did it.
For the past month, I have been tasked with primarily overseeing the work of the intern. Which has been .. challenging. At first, I wasn’t sure if I was a bad teacher or she was a unmotivated student - but today, I got my answer.
We are hosting a major event tomorrow - major(!!) and it has required a lot of time, effort, and man power. So today, I asked me to make a lot of copies of various things that got to me late from presenters that I would like to have all set up by COB today. What does she do? NOT MAKE THE FUCKING COPIES. This is not the first time. Big meeting last Friday, I asked her to make the packets - she forgot to add four of the 10 files I emailed her. LIKE WHAT THE FUCK. I try to hard to be nice and understanding, but I just feel like she has decided she gives no fucks about this internship and just wants to get paid and get out.
I have so much on my plate for tomorrow and now I have to spend time bitching on tumblr, and time printing, collating, and stapling LIKE I HAD NOTHING ELSE TO DO TODAY.
Can you fire an intern?
UPDATE: Her reason for not making the copies today was that I didn’t send the attachment. I very legit explanation. However, if someone emails you asking to make a copy of “the attached” and doesn’t attach anything - isn’t the reasonable response to ASK FOR THE ATTACHMENT?! And she just left early because her boyfriend is locked out of his house. Since my boss is working from home, she just sent her an email saying there was a “family emergency” so she needed to leave early. BURN IT ALL DOWN.
Every time I look at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.
- And admit it you thought Pink was going to get hoisted up onto a trapeze during that Wizard Of Oz tribute.
My third grade teacher called my mother and said, ‘Ms. Cox, your son is going to end up in New Orleans in a dress if we don’t get him into therapy.’ And wouldn’t you know, just last week I spoke at Tulane University, and I wore a LOVELY green and black dress.
