For the past year my job has been stressful for a few reasons, some of which were related to a store I run being underperforming as compared to the others. So at exec meetings stuff like "I know which stores are profitable and which store are NOT", with a glance toward me, has been said. And I've generally been appreciated, but looked down upon. I just keep making improvements and just couldn't figure out how we could be doing so badly in comparison, considering our clients are so thrilled with us and our sales average is higher and growing.

Anyway, Ha! It turns out some calculations were off and my store is in fact in the black, and the tightest ship in the fleet according to the first quarter report. Yay!
This probably is boring for you guys but it is amazing and great news and ends my seemingly permanent state of anxiety. (for now).

Awesome. Stick it to them, jerks. It's nice to be able to feel that weight lifted off of you.

I'm in a constant state of work anxiety as well because my department manager set his mind about what kind of worker I am a long time ago. He's never around during peak times so he just assumes who does what. Guess how much he thinks I do? Meanwhile the assistant manger is actually around and sees what I do, but head manger doesn't trust his judgement because they are always butting heads.

I can't win. Also can't switch departments because I'm getting the hours I need and wouldn't get elsewhere.

Thumbs up Re: VINDICATION!

Yeah, fuck 'the man' man!

I quit my job Monday and it was met with a "yeah, whatever" from my manager.

Friday afternoon I think the a realisation of how much I do hit my manager in the face. I won't miss it but I do feel bad for the work I am leaving for some others.

Time to get out of London; I'm too soft for how tough it can be.
