      Yeah it's true. Her eyes started welling up when I was in her office. That's when I knew it was time to bail. After that she called her boss into her office so they could try and come up with a plan as we are the only two in the office who keep that department going.

      I would have tried to be nicer about the situation, but she was borderline abusive and bullying when I started. I took a few days off for sick leave from the stress of working with her, just to return and find out that she was docking me holidays for the time away. I approached the owner and her bosses boss for assistance and they said that if I couldn't make it work with her, I'd have to leave....plain and simple.

      Last month I got them to renew my yearly gym membership, then literally 2 days ago (Oct 30th) we were all issued yearly profit share.

      I don't think this could have come at a better time.

          Pretty stoked! Been considering a new dd....but given that I probably won't be driving to work anymore (I live in the core of Vancouver BC) makes a new car seem like a waste (which it is, given that I can simply rent something when I need it).

          The best feeling today was walking into my bosses office and telling her (jokingly, of course) she can "take this job and STAFF it!"
          Then I felt kinda bad 'cause she started crying and then disclosed that she was planning on taking the month of December off.
          Oh well, not like I was willing to give up a job just so she can have time off
          Is she hot?

            Lol, thanks flyboy.
            I see what you mean by "greener pastures" but to be honest, there's NO chance of advancement or even a change of title in my current position. I'm literally calling and emailing people on a daily basis to get money out of them. Most despise when I call so you can imagine how overdue I am for a change.

            Oh and the additional e30 funds also help ;D

                Good for you Stanley! I can't believe she was attempting to make you feel guilty about it lol. She sounds pretty terrible to work under

                  Yeah looks like she was a micro manager, and/or like to use guilt to persuade others.

                    This lady just came into the shop and asked if I were the mechanic. I said, yes, I am the mechanic.

                    Then she says, yooooooooooooooooooooooooooooou're the mechanic

                    Me- Yes, I am the mechanic

                    her- I need an oil change

                    me- okay, I can do that (gave her the price)

                    her- so you know what you're doing

                    me- yes, I am the mechanic

                    her- are you sure (she then starts peeking around inside)

                    me- Yeah, I build CNC machines too, that's what that stuff is for

                    Then she just didn't say anything for a minute and give me an up and down look.

                    I'm wearing my snap-on sweater, black pants and some converse.

                    Me- if you don't feel comfortable, you don't have to do it here.

                    her- eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrm, someone recommended you, but idk....

                    I was actually slightly offended haha

                    Then I told her let me know if she wants to do it and I walked away.

                    This has never happened to me before in my life. I guess I look like a guy who doesn't know what he's doing, or a mechanic that's not capable of doing an oil change on a 2003 e46

                      on my first fight in the captain's seat was from manchester, nh to newark. i am sitting there getting the aircraft ready and the fist person to board the airplane is an old lady with a walker. she sticks her head in the cockpit and says: "i don't know if you are old enough to fly this airplane". i said: "its my first day, welcome on board!" haha.

                      i was surprised, but she actually took a seat.

                          I hate flying, so that would freak me out! Poor old lady....

                          idk why, but that made me think of the lotion story and now I can't stop laughing :rofl:

                          also,

                          The lady that doubted my abilities came back and asked for the oil change, but I got two more cars, so no available hoists for you, lady!

                          Better luck next time :p

                            I should have grabbed my 3lb hammer and walked back and been like, "ready to go!"

                            I think I was so preoccupied with my feelings being hurt, I forgot to take advantage of the situation

                              That happens all the time. You're dumbfounded in the moment. No time to be your true self. Haha Hate when that happens.

                                She's going to be here in the morning so I'll convince her you have to crack the oil pan open to get the oil out. "the new filter comes with a new pan!" "the germans used the same concept of cracking an egg open when the engineered their oil pan and oil change procedure!"
