    In the past, I have wished ill fortune for
    my former boss, who TORTURED me 40 hrs a week -
    for 7 years on the job.
    I was absolutely miserable and she had MENTAL problems.
    I've never had to deal w/ anyone like her in my life !
    .
    It got so bad......
    I could walk into her office - stand in front of her -
    watch her mouth move.....and NOT HEAR A WORD SHE SAID !
    It was a "Survival Technique".
    .
    She finally got fired when 2 Board Members had to deal
    w/ her on a daily basis -- when a remodelling job took place.
    I overheard them tell each other -
    "We gotta get her outta here !"
    .
    She left 2 years ago --
    And I swore - if I ever met her on the street -
    I would NOT ACKNOWLEDGE her in any manner !:Þ
    "Life is too damn short - to be miserable for 7 years."
    .
    Well,
    I just heard she had a massive storke + is on Life Support.
    It's over.....they will be "pulling the plug" soon.
    .
    I am not rejoiceing about it ---
    But I will NOT be attending any service for her.
    Some of my co-workers will be.
    .
    I guess, I can take the pins outta the doll, now ?
    .
    Sorry.... this is a weird post.

    Dont take the pins out yet, sounds like they need to be in just a bit longer.

    A coworker of mine said he had a voodoo doll of our boss, the boss went out on medical leave shortly thereafter, he was out for a long time and returned under mysterious circumstances. The coworker smiled and said "voodoo very strong".

    Not as weird as you staying and taking the abuse for 7 years! What does that tell you about yourself?

    It tells me I had no choice.
    I'm in a Union and have full medical benefits.
    I ain't leaving !
    I gave up my other higher paying (per hour) job - for this
    one, because of the medical benefits coverage.
