Eric Michael! We need to talk.

Do you ever just need a helluva spanking just to clear your mind, settle your nerves, and handle a situation?  Uh, I'm there.

Eric has been gone for awhile and if all goes well he'll be back on Thursday.  Thank goodness for my band of thieves.  At last count, I think I am due 170 swats and boy am I ready.  I'm wound so tight right now it literally seems impossible for me to make a rational or logical move.

Eric is my HOH and I've mentioned this before.  He can scold me, punish me, put me in the corner; the list goes on and on.  He can and has done it all but never once, not one single time, has he ever made me feel disrespected or under valued.  My boss at work, on the other hand, has a habit of it.

No need to bore you with the details but my boss can be very degrading and when he made his way to my office and decided to pick apart the way I speak, the educated ideas I have, and the value I provide, I walked out on him.  Literally got up and left my own office after telling him that nobody deserves to be made the way I feel at work.

When I relay this story to Eric, I know he will remind me that he has been telling me for years to stand up for myself and to document every single time my boss makes me feel this way.  I've finally done it.  I just don't know what the ramifications will be.  I hope Eric is proud of me, though at the moment I'm wondering if the risk I took will prove to be not at all worth the reward.  I truly love my job and would hate for it to change or worse, go away.  The straw broke. I just couldn't take the abuse anymore.

On Thursday, Eric and I will "talk".  By then I'll know the consequences of my actions at the J-O-B and I'll be even more ready for a reset, courtesy of my Band of Thieves.  Stay tuned!

  1. Are you able to go to human resources? I like Eric's idea about documenting everything he says that you feel is inappropriate. I have walked out on a boss or two in my time. In one way it feels great, in another it's terrifying. Type it up so you'll have it if you need it. And good luck.

    1. Thanks PK. Typed and waiting in a just-in-case file. Hopefully I'll never need to use it.

  2. Sorry about the job. I hope that it all works out the right way. Nobody should be abused at work. And I get the feeling wound/needing a spanking feeling. Hopefully Thursday comes early. Hang in there.

    1. Yep. I can't wait until Eric gets home. Poor guy. I just need a trip over his knee to release this insane pressure build up. He's a good sport. Bet he'll help his girl out.

    1. It's tricky. He's inconsistent. Most of the time I really like working for him and then he loses it now and then and I hate it. Afraid that reporting him will destroy the good times. Yikes. I sound like I'm defending an abuser.

  4. Amy, I’m sorry you’re going through this. Does your company have an anti-bullying policy you can call on?
    May I make a suggestion about the spanking? Ask Eric for a spanking specifically to clear your head and settle you down, rather than use the stolen meme spanks. The meme was such fun, it would be a shame for it to be associated with your horrible boss’s actions. Save it for another time, when you can have some fun and think about your partners in crime with every spank!
    In the meantime, keep your chin up.

    1. Thank you Rosie. You are so right. Why bring my boss into the FUN our band of thieves have created?! Good call. I'll request that my hubby keep them separate. Can't wait til that man is home.

  5. Love Rosie's idea above. Good advice.

    Once when we had a bad principal at my school, we were counseled by a mediator to document everything in writing.

    Hugs,

  6. I agree with Rosie as well. I'd like to withhold the 10 from me for a happier time. What a horrible boss! :(

  7. Oh my. Honestly. There are few things more awful than an awful boss. It can get in your head and take over your life - even your "down time." I so hope you do not lose your job and there is a way to work this out. Hoping it works out as you are hoping with Eric as well. Best to you.

    1. It's been a few days. The boss and I are being very mature about it all - avoiding each other and doing all necessary communication using text and email. LOL Thanks for the comment.

  8. I hope today brings you the release that you need - bottled up emotions are so difficult. Best to you.
