subject line: real world ain't so sweet

 

Troy, Michigan

I got burned at work for the first time today. Last week she was telling me how proud she is of all my hard work and how impressed she is by how I have proven myself. She sat me down and told me that I’m being considered for a promotion in the coming months. Today I got an e-mail that read, “It really pisses me off how this generation is, she’s incompetent and can’t handle her job.” She forgot to un ‘CC me before hitting that send button. She’s 56. I’m 23. Does the backstabbing ever end or are we all just aged caddy high school girls in the hallway for the rest of our lives?
