I am sorry that I haven't posted in a while. Things in my life have been crazy, and I needed to get a few things in order. I am employed at my husband's office, and we love working together. However, he has a partner, and his wife is also employed here. To say that they are difficult would be an understatement. So, with great sadness I have decided to quit my job. This will be tough, as I do make a good income with them. I have given a lot of thought to this decision, and it saddens me to have to leave, but I have decided that my marriage and my mental state are far more important. So, in these bad economic times, add me to the unemployed!! Yikes, why do I feel so much better? I guess my decision is the right one. I do have a question to pose: why do some people enjoy being mean to everyone around them?? The partners wife is not happy unless she is being vicious and ugly to someone. I am usually not a passive person, but I leave work crying at least once a week. My poor husband doesn't know what to do. Talking to them doesn't seem to help, they are oblivious to everyone but themselves. Just wondered if I was the only one who was sick of mean people? Well, have a wonderful day, and maybe now I can be happy once again!!

I'm so sorry to read of your trials. It can be so difficult to leave a job - but sometimes it's the only way to keep your mental health positive.

You are NOT the only one who is surprised by mean people - there is a bumper sticker that I see occasionally, "Mean People Suck" - and I couldn't agree more.

Good luck and best wishes in whatever you choose to move forward doing!

I dont get it either.. I guess some people are just miserable and remember, misery loves company.. so they try to make others feel the same way I guess. thats whats nice about our little blogging community, everyone is so nice.

That is so sad.
As the bumper sticker says "Mean People Suck"
You will be much better off!!
I don't have time for mean people.
Take care,

Hi Lady, I want to be unemployed too, but my husband won't let me leave. In my case I'm sick of grouchy men & in laws. Let's get together soon,
Love Tracy M.

What an amazingly difficult situation! I'm so sorry this is happening. I've been away a bit from blogland. There is so much happening in just a week! My thoughts and prayers are with you. Thank you for yours!

Isn't sad when people are just unhappy ALL THE TIME! I just don't get them at all. They always want to drag everyone else into their unhappiness as well.
I have a couple people like that, that I happen to work with and some days they can just be so draining....even though I remain upbeat, they just wear me out sometimes!!
Totally feel your pain.
So, maybe something better will come along?!! Hang in there.

Valerie...I am so sorry to hear that you have been having a trying time. I missed your Loving Cup Giveaway so I just treated myself to the one I wanted :)

My sister has always told me that karma will come back around to nip someone in the backside eventually. It may not be when we want but it will happen, sooner or later. Mean people do eventually have to face the way they have treated others in one way or another.

I am wishing you days full of creativity and love.
