And thats why I'd still leave this job in a heartbeat

Because even in the middle of a long email exchange with someone I have worked with for two years I still get called Alice sometimes. My name is not Alice.

Because when I try to be inclusive and friendly and invite my coworkers to lunch, I get my head bit off for no reason. The more I try to reach out to people, to make friends, the more I feel like I am beating my head against a wall. I already have friends, people that I love and care about, and people who get me, understand my sense of humor and realize that I'm FUCKING KIDDING YOU OVERSENSITIVE MORON.

Because I get a promotion and then am barely allowed to do the job I am being paid to do. (sort of paid, paid not very well)

Because at the end of the day, I am really homesick. Nothing is worth staying here, and the more things change at my job, the more they stay the same. The longer I am around these "environmentalists" these "animal lovers" these "liberal thinkers" and "open minded" people, the more I realize how pretentious and ignorant they are. A bunch of over-privileged brats. Who by the way, judge everyone based on the most ridiculous criteria and overgeneralize. I'm blond, I was in a sorority, I don't have a degree in biology, I MUST be a vapid, useless bimbo right?

Can you tell I am having a really bad day?

If you were here, I'd give you a hug and take to to Amigo's for margaritas. Love you!

Fuck em'. The valuable gems are hard to find and have sharp edges... I don't know, it makes sense in my head.

I hope you feel better soon, dear. And if feeling better means that you need to quite your job and move back to Florida, then I am all for that. ;) Seriously though, it would take every fiber of my being not to chew out the person calling me "Alice". Go home today, have a drink, and turn off your work cell phone all week-end. I love you!

Those people need to be on Fawk You! Friday, for sure!! I'm sorry they're all such pretentious little turd burglars. That has to make life really hard, and you deserve so much better than that.
