"Marge, if you're going to get mad at me every time I do something stupid, then I guess I'm just going to have to stop doing stupid things!" - Homer Simpson in the Mr. Plow episode
The piece is seventy-five minutes long...[l]ong enough for an idea to be developed, but not so long that one starts to measure the number of seats to the exits with desperation if the thing doesn’t work" -- Marina Harss
All's well that ends well. Best of luck to you Guinevere.
So glad to hear it!
Congratulations on both leaving a toxic environment, getting a new job fairly quickly, and then finding out your nemesis was fired! Sweet news all around.
I was in a similar situation. My supervisor was mercurial and I was always singled out for what I would now call abuse. It became a toxic situation and my usually robust health suffered. I left, was unemployed for a few months, and now I work for slightly less but I'm healthy and very happy things happened as they did.
Things happen for a reason.
I also love that quote about sitting by the river!!!
