Ch ch ch Changes

Okay, so.  T hired a new guy to work in the shop.  I don't know that I'm entirely thrilled.  I KNOW that I should give the guy a chance.  I just don't know that I wanna.  My first impression of him was that he's kind of a kiss-ass with a sob story. I have zero patience for either.  (Yes, I realize I do my share of bitching, but I am NOT a whiner)  Also, I like MY space and after nearly 14 years, I consider the entire shop to be MY space.  I'd piss all over stuff if I knew it would effectively mark my territory.

I'm effectively unsettled.  I am unsure of how this will change the shop dynamic. The shop dynamic being me acting like a pseudo-bratty-know-it-all-lovable-scamp-with-a-mouth-like-a-trucker and T sometimes playing along, sometimes scolding me, and sometimes just staring in slack-jawed wonderment at my overflowing awesome.  You see where the new guy's gonna fit in??  Me neither.

TWH suggested I walk up to him, punch him, and tell him "Now you know!!" and walk off, prison style.  I may just unleash my inner Bon Qui Qui.  We'll hafta wait and see.

If I come back tomorrow and tell you all I'm unemployed, you'll know it ended badly for EVERYBODY.


P.S.  Speaking of coming back tomorrow, go check out my guest post on The Family Pants.  Mama Pants is doing a guest posting series called Fancy Friday.  We're getting our Fancy back & we're sharing how we're doing it!!  Stop by and tell her what makes you feel Fancy!!

  2. Punch him in the thorax - it always works (well, in my mind - I've never actually punched anyone in the thorax, but it sounds like ti would be very effective).

    Did T even clear this new hire with you before he just up and brought him on board? That would be like TWH buying a pet snake and bringing it home without your agreeing to it or without your being able to have right of refusal. Well, maybe not exactly - because I don't know if a snake even has a thorax.

    1. Julie, you're on a straight-up TEAR!! Lol!!
      T sort-of cleared it with me. I told him ultimately it was HIS shop & HIS hire and I could suck up whatever I wasn't thrilled with until I got myself moved to Austin.

  3. YES man, kiss asses, and suck ups have to be shown a dark closet with the understanding it is a free ass kissing suck up zone and bad things can and will happen in that dark closet.
    Good luck and I can dig a mean hole I am just saying what are friends for ???? LOL

    1. I'm currently instituting the "Don't Fuck With Me" glare. I let him approach only if he uses caution and the proper amount of reverence.
      I'll keep your mean hole-digging skills in mind!!

    1. I haven't really had that much interaction with him. I'm still kinda keeping my distance. So far, he kinda makes me stabby.
