The company we worked at had a toxic team culture. When I left, I didn’t tell them where I was going. I didn’t want all these negative and toxic people to know about my new chapter. I did meet some lovely people at this company and I keep in touch with them to this day. The toxic ones I want to remove from my life. When I blocked this person and the rest of the toxic team members from all of my social channels, I felt a huge burden lifted. I periodically clean out my friends/contact list to this day. If you’re too good to like a picture of my kids than we really aren’t friends.https://therealishma.wordpress.com/2020/07/07/social-stalking

Disagreeableness isn’t a curse or a mark of a demon. In fact, it’s a valuable trait for making friends and getting ahead in your social life.
I know I should write a better introduction, but fuck that. We’re on my turf here. I don’t want to put effort into this introduction, and you can’t make me.
Acknowledge the value of diplomacy and tact
Honesty doesn’t have to be brutal, but it has to hurt sometimes. Life is pain (but not always).
Hitting people with brutal honesty then claiming “I’m not an asshole, I’m just honest” is a dick move if you get validation from the brutality as much as from the honesty.
Unless you’re on the autism spectrum, you have the natural ability to read social cues that inform you on how to behave. Use it. There’s no point in unnecessarily crossing boundaries or pissing people off to fuel self-righteousness.

A couple of weeks ago, I worked for this company. Not sure if I can name it in public but their customer is one of the biggest companies out there. But even if it sounds amazing and they talk your ears off with stuff you want to hear, everything is never what it seems.
First off, getting hired on directly was good but we were promised to work forty hours, four days a week but once we got in there, we were told that we HAVE to work fourteen days straight when we first start. Okay, that’s a little weird but fine.
Well, starting out, everything is rough because it was new territory. It was a assembly line job where we made car seats. I, for one, am one of those females who know nothing about cars. So everything was a struggle at first but eventually, after I was left…

Do you ever have a difficult time handling compliments?
Yeah, not me.
Okay, that’s not completely true; I’m not very good with handling compliments when it comes to my writing. It’s not that I don’t appreciate them, it’s just that I get shy about it. I know, hard to believe I’d be shy, but… anyway, I find it difficult to respond with something other than a simple “thanks” or, “it’s appreciated”, and most likely without punctuation or an emoji, because if I add anything, it’ll feel like I’m fawning.
I really dislike it when anyone oozes with insincerity; I want to have a shower afterwards.
I like getting compliments that are original. If someone’s going to say, “You have beautiful hair” it’s boring, who cares? I’ve heard it a million times. Now if you said something like, “You have beautiful nose hair”, well now, that’s original.
I would appreciate…
