Ah, Sushi...It's always like that, isn't it? Troubles come in bunches. Do you have a friend with a wet/dry shop vac to suck the carpet?

Did you tell your insurance guy that the other driver told you at the time that there was no damage? It's your word against his at this point. If no one called the police and no witnesses signed anything, for all you know the damage to his car could have happened afterward and have nothing to do with you!

Re: the boss. You might address his complaints one by one on paper in a really professional way and cc whoever you think would be useful as a person to hear your side of the problem(s). Include your own issues addressed one by one with a request that he help you solve your difficulties, too. He is your boss, after all, and you're still in training. You just have to outclass people like that and be super professional. And make sure you leave a paper trail so you have back up for your side. But, of course, you know all that already. Keep your chin up and come in here where your friends are to keep your sanity!!

You would sell your pink shoes for ME?! I dont know the signifigance of them but they sound close to your heart Jkath. A fundraiser huh? lol Ok how do we do THAT? I have nothing to sell.

Their, the carpet isnt too bad. I have the air on and a BIG fan going. AS far as the bossman..... the company Im in is small. If I try to address things like that (I have thought of that) then he will see it as an attack and REALLY try to can me. And probably succeed. He reports to the owner and they are best buddies.

I would even sell my gym membership to get you back on your feet, sush.


Okay, kids, it's time for me to hit the hay. I'm really sleepy and I need to be wide awake - lots of commitments tomorrow to attend to.

Take care and goodnight.
