Back in the 80′s I had received my Fashion Design & Merchandising degree and had begun holding rehearsals for my first fashion show in a top nightclub on the famous Country Club Plaza in Kansas City. I was 26, green, extremely honest and trusting. Yeh sure, in the Fashion Industry?? One of the women I hired to model began trying to take over, making decisions on her own, changing my plans and undermining me every chance she got. I hadn’t learned the word “diplomatic” yet, and in anger I spewed out “Hey, you whoo, YOU be the Model and I’LL be the Boss.”
Oh, my Lord! The woman turned red in rage and by the end of the week I had received a summons from her attorney for a concocted lawsuit. I lost sleep and it cost money, but I learned a valuable lesson.
Watch Your Back! AND your Tongue.
Can you even imagine what goes on in both State and Federal Government?
I’m not picking on this guy because I lean to the Left…I support women and their right to stay safe and relevant, I’m against shenanigans with voting suppression and wicked games, I don’t believe immigrants are “the other,” I don’t understand same gender sex but I do understand same gender love. I do understand the commandment Love Thy Neighbor. I digress…
“I AM NOT A WITCH…I MEAN BULLY”
Perhaps New Jersey should have listened to Barbara Buono. I like her. I knew what she was saying was true, when she talked of the powerful Bosses who wanted him in. The all male grip is almost impossible to correct.
Republican leaders are congratulating the N.J. Governor of “good leadership” for throwing his #2 and #3 right-hands under the bus.
If you are a woman working for ANY of the Republican Governors you have been warned…
These people think waaay ahead.
Bullies come in many forms and one person’s bully is another person’s hero. There are several people looking into the bullying going on in our schools. Now you know what they look like when they grow up.
In my church secretary days, one of the many pastors I worked for threw the mail at me so I would I have get up from my desk and pick it up off the floor, then I’d give a false laugh to go along with his joke. Another pastor’s wife got pleasure in leaning down in my face (personal face-space area) when asking me to do something for her. When I recoiled in distaste, she had her husband force me to transcribe from a tiny tape recorder what he did all day, from getting up and letting his dog out to pee, to typing word for word his personal prayer time. (She was a pro-lifer who believed women who have had abortions should go to prison.)
Why have Evangelicals tied their coattails onto the Republican platform when it goes against the prime directive of “loving” people and “not judging” people. Are today’s ministers pharisees? You would think they would at least know The Sermon on the Mount.
We can relate to this woman in that some of us know the feeling of being thrown under the bus upon occasion,
but, you know the phrase “Birds of a feather flock together”?
Most parents try to impart to their young the importance of choosing their friends carefully. Humans tend to take on traits of who they hang with, who they admire. It is entirely possible Bridget began acting like everyone else in the office, but what she didn’t know, that she knows now, is that women are not held in high regard on the far Right. The Church teaches differently, that the Bible says men should love their wives (women) as Jesus loved the Church, however, anyone who works closely with the Church knows in reality women are demeaned there.
- Does she needs a bodyguard?
- I for one, will be reading her tell-all book, hope she lives to write one…or she might take the hush money.
The end to my fashion design story, was I have always had the “good” habit of taking notes and in one of my correspondences to the model (this is before e-mails) I had spelled out who was in charge. This ding-bat gal had provided a copy of those same notes to the Judge. The Judge then said…“well, it says right here... I suggest you go home and quit causing trouble for this other lady. ADJOURNED!”
Here’s what bothers me more than anything about the Chris Christie story. Most of our leaders are baby boomer age, and in the 70′s and 80′s when we were young there were many books and seminars on how to act in management. Yes, there are different styles of leadership, but there are rules. Deep down we know what is right, and should be able to spot a fake. For some reason one side thinks Christie is a great leader and another side sees a low-life with a small I.Q.
We’re not supposed to relish when someone else gets his comeuppance.
Do you love Chris Christie? We know why Republican leaders praise him, but why are some Democrats enamored with him.
Have you been thrown under the bus?
Tell me where I’m wrong.
