When given some not-so-constructive feedback by their employer, they take initiative into their hands and apply a more destructive approach to their conundrum.
Originally performed by a man, but this is open gender.
He wanted me to show more initiative at work. He called me lazy. He called me that in front of everyone. What was I supposed to do with that? He's my age and he's my boss. We went to school together. I remember going to school with him. I hated him then and my feelings never changed. He was the type who always knew everything. You know the type. The smug son of a gun who can't help but boast about his extensive intellectual accomplishments.
I'm not proud of this, but he had a ceiling fan.
What kind of asshole can afford a house right now that has a ceiling fan in it? It wasn't a small one either. If this was on the other side of the roof, the house would fly away. I know it's a stupid thing to get angry over, but it bothered me. I felt it getting under my skin with every gentle lap of air it splashed on us. Cool air is a luxury and the rest of us just sit in our hot clammy little heat puddles.
