Just wanted to thank everyone who voted for me and tried to win that contest a short while back. I wrote in about my displeasures with my current boss. People could vote and, if I got enough votes, I would win a week's vacation to somewhere. The rules were kind of vague in that section. I didn't win. Usually someone would go from being only about thirty votes ahead of me to over a thousand votes litterally overnight. Don't know how that happened but, either way, my congratulations go out to the winners of that contest and my thanks go out to all of you who put up with my constant venting about my butt-head of a boss. I had asked a woman who writes a column for AOL on bad workplaces if she'd like to read about mine. She said yes so I typed something up and sent it to her. When I asked her later what she thought of it, I was surprised by her response. She said that the things I wrote about are, sadly, not uncommon in the workplace and that my story was not a unique one. Kind of comforting and disturbing all at the same time. Comforting to know that there are others going through or have gone through the same kind of thing. But disturbing to know that it happens at all. Anyway, I'm doing it again. Can't thank y'all enough. Especially the ones who voted for me. One day I'll be away from this place, look back on my experience, and hopefully be a better person as a result of it.

Just saw this and as Newbfiero sorry to hear that you didnít win. I was sure you were a shoe in, that's why I suggested that you try.

If the places like yours are not that uncommon I glad not to have worked in one. I have work for some real ass swipes over the years but to me yours seemed like the topper.

Hope you find something soon before you loose what is left of your sanity.

Thanks were not really needed we are all friends here and that's what friends do, they try to help each other out.

I have my differences with many of the people on the forum in many areas but will always try to help anyone here who needs it, simply because of our small attachment by way of our love of these little cars.

Sanity? Oh don't worry. I've got plenty of that left.

Ok, so maybe it's my insanity that keeps me sane.
