You Are Not the Boss of Me! By Cristina R Hamilton

I consider resistance from friends and family to be a prejudice because any family member or friend who would be against my pursuing a higher education, I would think they’re selfish and maybe envious at the thought of my success. Again I could use this Boss of mine at the real estate company I said to him one day I am thinking about going back to school what do you think about that. He said no you should go back to school what would you do that for.bossofme300

I gave him a look like (hmm). I didn’t say anything else. I went home and thought as I wrote in my journal what owner of a business, a successful business would advise their employee not to return to school. Then at the IT company I had a similar issue I was writing an IM to a friend talking in code because I knew they were watching my computer. I told him I didn’t think I could last until my “probate”. Well what I meant was I don’t think I can stay at this job for another moment. I had an interview with Delta airlines that was coming up and I wanted to get out of that job. This also let me knew they we watching my computer at home. I completed the application for Delta at home and got a email from Delta that my friend had read from her computer she then IMmed me at work and told me I had something regarding my probate. I went home for lunch that day and checked the email. The management in the IT company were doing everything in their power to get me to tell somebody. So once they sabotaged it I would think it was coming from whomever I told. They had people calling the office telling me they were getting ready to go to computer school and want to speak to the COO so he may advised them on what course to take. That was to motivate me to share my plans with him so that he could sabotage them. I did make the mistake of telling the Boss at the real estate company and of course I didn’t get the job with Delta. They had my interviewer waiting for me. When I got to Atlanta the also had a new process where they took pictures just in case I tried to come back. If I said anything to anybody about anything I was doing they were blackmailing them for the information so that they could sabotage it.

Once I left the company they would use me to teach other women mainly African American’s how to speak. I bet you are wondering how in the world could they do something like that. Well with the IT company having access to every working person in the start of Florida via one of the clients. They would have me contact people at welfare offices, work-force agencies and many other state agencies that I may have went to for assistance, I would be assigned a worked who may have been rumor as uneducated or lazy based on the observations of the powers that be. I would then either met with this person face to face, which was always the worse because you could see the intimidation on the faces once I opened my mouth and they realize I was not one of their average fly by night uneducated welfare recipients. This then made these people have attitude with me. They not knowing where the indirect human resource training was coming from and I am just trying to apply for assistance not knowing that I was the “trainer”, unpaid of course. However I knew exactly where it all was coming from they followed my every move. I still have not discovered why. I will never return there.

They followed my every move even when I made plans and hosted events. This happened with family gatherings, yes I was planning a family reunion in Tallahassee they sabotaged it. We had another one in that small town near Tallahassee where my Granny lives. Yep they sabotaged that to. They would have people tell me “hey we are hiring” just so I could go home and submit an application online and never hear from the company. They did this at the Bank I have my accounts with. I plan on changing banks real soon.

I found this today while rummaging through some old things and I’d like to share it with you all.

The Boss

When the body was first created all of the parts wanted to be the boss. The brain said since I control everything and do all the thinking, I should be the boss. The feet said we carry man where he wants to be and put him in position to do what the brain wants, we should be the boss. The eyes said since we must look out for all of you and tell where danger lurks, we should be the boss. And the were reasons from the heart, the ears and the lungs when finally the asshole spoke up and demanded that it be boss. All of the other body parts laughed and laughed at the idea of an asshole being the boss. The asshole was so angered that it blocked itself off and refused to function. Soon the brain was feverish, the eyes were crossed. The feet were too weak to walk and the hands and arms just hung to the sides. The lungs and heart struggled to keep going. They all pleaded with the brain to give up and let the asshole be boss. As soon as that happened the other body parts began to work with no problems because once the asshole became boss all it did was talk “shit”.

The moral of the story is you don’t have to be a brain to be the boss you just have to be an asshole.
