There is one in the office probably the ring leader of sorts. She is the type that becomes the best friend of the newly hired and builds allegiances solely for the purpose of getting people fired later. We are a small company even after two mergers and she is responsible for at least half of the people let go. The scary thing being she has only been with the company since 2013. Her first month she befriended the marketing admin that through a very complicated series of events too much so to go into here felt threatened and hatched a complaint against the Creative Director. The trouble maker aligned herself with the Marketing Assistant within days of the alleged incident they were going to each others homes after work, making dinner, going out the whole nine. Miraculously even though she did not actually see what happened and the person that did was never questioned somehow this woman became one of the only witnesses to the accusation. The guy was fired and it took him almost two years to find another job. Blessedly he is working for Belk in the same type position today but especially being a black guy in the south it was a tough road. I listened to her last week go on about the Realtor her dad chose to sell his vacation house. When another co-worker asked "what's so bad about him?" She goes "well first I can't hang with him" then she launches into a bunch of non issue things like him not having a Facebook page for the listing and the next thing you know this guy a personal friend of her father's I might add is the worst Realtor in town. She said "when I was talking to dad he said well I won't use him in the future and I told him good" GOOD??? You just lost business for this man for no reason other than you could. She loves doing it and it's hard to watch it happen over and over in the office.

So anyway her new narrative is the IT Director is awful and nothing works and he's unresponsive. I was in my team meeting and our CMO says "well just document any issue no matter how small and take it to his boss. Don't take it to him take it to his boss so it can get taken care of" because despite the fact the IT Director always responds and I mean always even on vacation he will answer and work on issues. Since she says he's unresponsive and she's said it long enough and to the right people in social situations when they are receptive to taking her opinion above common sense, any issue should be taken up with his boss. I know sooner or later she's coming for me so I guess I should worry about myself but I just couldn't keep silent so I warned the IT Director about the bad moon rising over his job. I swear I hate this shit!!!!!!!!!!!

**EDIT**There is an issue going on between us and the digital team specifically the SEO writer and the woman in question actually said "Yeah I just don't like her but it doesn't matter because she won't have a job soon anyway" the fact that she is not this girl's boss, doesn't live in Amsterdam, and except for this very petty issue has little to nothing to do with her on a daily basis. Her glee at the idea of someone being out of job is really disturbing.

On a brighter note Mr. Corey has been special I think because he's pissed I went on vacation without him. In fairness we are due for a beach trip. At any rate to give Cam peace and keep them from killing each other after I spent Friday night and a big part of Saturday thanking K for the celebratory orgasm. I took Corey to Pisgah Forest yesterday for cooler weather, sliding rock fun, and a change of scenery. It was the perfect respite from the heat and sleep deprivation.

The weekend was great of course there were glitches it's me after all. 1st? Well I made a point to pack, get my directions, and have everything I needed in the kitchen so I wouldn't forget anything. Cam was not happy with the news he was staying with Vikki overnight. He saw my suitcase by the door Friday morning and immediately assumed I would be gone a long time. I kept assuring him I was only leaving for the weekend. Anyway I was talking to him instead of paying attention. I had my purse and my suitcase but I didn't have my directions or my cell phone...I left them on the counter. I didn't discover this mistake until I was halfway to Atlanta without nstig8r's phone number on me or the directions I had to go back, sigh. Anyway I finally made it to Atlanta and wound up driving my car. What? Yep folks you didn't misread I took my heap to New Orleans. But it wasn't bad my air condition works and hey I have satellite radio (which is very important you understand). The only time I felt a little weird is with the valet parking...yes you didn't misread I used valet parking because well because it was damn convenient.  Just because I drive a heap doesn't mean I like being inconvenienced. Anyway back to the glitches...nstig8tr and I were talking and the traffic was unbelievably heavy in Atlanta we missed the break from 75/85 and stayed on 75 instead of 85. Luckily I noticed this before we wound up in Florida but again we had to do a little back tracking. I must insert here that we did have a great time. None of this was a big deal in the scheme of things. I am laid back and luckily she is too so we laughed it off and enjoyed our weekend. And yes we did make it to New Orleans without any other mishaps.

The concert was awesome just awesome...On Sunday when we were walking around I was stopped a couple of times "you went to see the Police?" I had my concert shirt on "I should have gone" yeah you should have...sieze the day is what I always say. It turns out The Police are coming to Atlanta after all in November. The cheap seats sold in no time flat and the seats left are $235. I am happy we went to New Orleans very happy actually. The show was great and we were able to do a little sight seeing.

Cafe Beignet...everyone keeps saying we should have gone to Cafe Du Monde instead but from what I could see it's the tourist's place to go. I liked being in the small cafe and I liked the beignets. Besides if we would have made the trek to Cafe Du Monde we would have gotten drenched. And that was the word for the weekend "lucky" I know it wouldn't seem like it with the backtracking but in truth we were very fortunate. It rained but we missed almost all of it. We were able to get decent seats to the show, the hotel we found was wonderful...very nice, even the valet was cute and helpful. I wish I could have stayed a bit longer but that is my only complaint. Oh and the french restaurant where we had dinner??? Yum! A five course meal and every course was great. I would go again even for the short time frame in a heartbeat.
