The economy picked a really bad time to do what it's doing. I so want to walk off my job. My boss' mother is making things far more difficult than they need to be. She's tellilng me to do things I already do. She is installing a camera that will be trained on my screen all day every day which means even at lunch I won't be free to just do things like this. I feel to violated right now. AND she tells me to stick to a schedule but the fracks up the schedule by going to the mail box and bank on the wrong days and then blames me when I don't see X bill because she's taken it off to look at it. What a bloody pain in the neck this woman is.

Callisto, that's such a shame.........you have every right to be stressed..........we had a doctor's wife who would come to the clinic once a week to "help" and she just made people's lives miserable.............the head nurse was an absolute dragon and foaming at the mouth by noon......I just stayed out of the way and under the firing range........I remember calling their office and letting them know that the last patient was there and having to inform "helpful wife"...........well, time went on and on and this patient was fuming and pacing.........I called back to the doctor's office and asked if they knew that they still had one patient out here........the head nurse screamed "what??????" apparently helpful wife forgot.........oh, no, I would not have wanted to be in that office for anything on Thursdays...........hang in there until something better comes along.......Mama is probably suffering from the effects of old age on the brain..........sorry you feel like you're in a stalag and big Momma is watching you

Callisto,
Hang in there. There are ups and downs in EVERY job but others are just intolerable. Try looking for a new job to make things better for you. I'm sending you prayers.

I just need to sound off - I'm so fed up with being moaned at, shouted at and treated though things going wrong in our house. Today, someone really annoyed DW at work and I got the brunt of her reaction down the phone whilst I was trying to cook dinner for the boys. She was being so mad, angry and cross and I got it. She just seems to being ratty everyday and if I say anything - I get it in spades.

I had a counsoler once tell me miniman that the people who love us most will treat us badly sometimes because they feel safe doing it. They know that tomorrow... you'll still love them. I think about that when Paul has to let off steam. I know that doesn't always help..but, sometimes...it does.

MM----hate to say it but it was probably that time of the moon, too...............try and listen with a detached ear.........I totally agree with pdswife.......your DW doesn't mean it but she's so frustrated right now.......my hubby after 35 years is finally catching on.......just ignore her moodiness, let her rant, listen, and plow ahead..........now if she keeps it up all the time of course you'll need to have a sit-down and get it out in the open and see what's really wrong.....I know....it frustrates you, too........

I'm not a counselor, but that is exactly the same conclusion I came to a year or so ago! I love James more than he will ever know, but I sometimes say things to him that I would never say to anyone else (and in a tone I would never use with anyone else), and he does the same (although probably not as often as me--I'm horrible sometimes!). I know that he will forgive my rantings (and he knows I will forgive his). This still doesn't make it right, but it's just the way it is. Thankfully, most of the time we are nice to each other!

Barbara

MM I'm sorry...
I can not understand taking out your problems on someone not involved. I see it alot... at home here too.... and I cannot and will not scream at someone not involved. There's no point.
Talking about it, fine.
Treating someone else badly because you're upset.... they don't deserve that.
