ugh ugh ugh

e. st v. millay
I was ... not "really into" but "okay with" this job at first, when the manager was training me on cake decorating, but she's been on vacation and I've been working with the assistant manager on bagging/baking bread and rolls and she's a PitA. The manager is just more personable, she made sure I didn't feel rushed or confused - the assistant manager keeps walking away while she's talking (so I miss what she's saying), she doesn't have the patience, and from the start of training me she was giving me long lists of verbal instructions, so basically I just feel frustrated and stupid all the time. She also responds to mistakes in a more "now we have a problem" tone of voice while the manager was like, "hey, it's okay." So basically I hate it and try to convince myself all shift that because a) there's very little customer interaction and b) we're making/selling things that people actually consume, it's worth it, but I hate it. Which gets me all fired up to apply to jobs but of course there are no jobs to apply for.

There is a thing I'm thinking about (not the interview I flubbed, I'm pretty sure I did in fact fuck that up and I'm not going to hear back from them) but I'm not going to talk about it because when I talk about things I jinx them. But I do have one more iron that hasn't been thrown off the fire/melted beyond repair).

People were talking about Chanel's Nazi connections in the FIT Facebook group and it warmed my heart, it did. Someone was really scathing about her and wow I am way to emotionally involved with people knocking down Chanel but it was great to read. They were meaner about her not being The Greatest Designer of All Time than I am, too.

People I know are starting to do the ice bucket challenge and I'm getting nervous that they'll nominate me. D: I can't handle being videotaped anymore.

Just read this post and the comments and am back to being depressed because she has a job and I don't.

Wow. What a snarky bitch. "oh, I'm just a costume designer with 25 years experience, what do I know?" Well, apparently you know all you're going to ever know if you can't handle being wrong gracefully :/ That makes me really angry and a little depressed too

My number one rule of thumb is that if you resort to pointing to your experience when someone challenges your facts, you suck and are probably wrong.

I'm going to write a blog post about this or just Outlander costuming in general, I'd like to engage her gently on her own space but she's not up to it. I'm just so frustrated right now and seeing her be obnoxious and still acting like she knows it all is not helping.

GOSH that was awful. I honestly don't expect much from the vast majority of theatrical costumers; so that doesn't get me. But the attitude and promulgation of that endless litany of half-truths and generalizations and myths was SO hard to take. So glad for the ones discussing it with her. ETA: Not to change her opinions, but at least to not let that wrongness pass unchallenged.
