Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part IV)
And now for the side show… the STL County Council/police fail at being empathetic, and tone deaf white people are tone deaf (and white). #staywoke #farfromover
sometimes i get irrationally angry about small transgressions. i should really work on that.
so i’m struggling with a career change. my branch hasn’t had much stability in the two years i’ve been working there. i’ve gone through five managers and an entire staff change since starting.
i genuinely enjoy banking, and as a banker, i customer-face constantly. it’s a blast and i love my customers. i actually have one of the best personal customer satisfaction scores in my region.
but the pay isn’t really worth the hassle, and they write us up for incredibly arbitrary issues, and they make you feel like you’re job is constantly on the line, no matter how well you’re doing. so, that’s a bank wide issue, and not just my branch.
however, i feel like i haven’t had a chance to meet my potential because i’ve yet to have a consistent manager and therefore have no one to actually coach me on things. i’m often left being told “but you know so much already!!!” and then having tasks loaded on that are above and beyond my pay grade.
out of the bosses i have had, i had one in particular that i adored. she was beyond competent and often took time to show me the CORRECT ways to do things, when other managers had shown me ass-backwards methods.
she was passed up for a promotion she should of gotten, and instead went to work for a different bank that offered her a $20k raise.
now she’s asking me to come work for me, and offering me a 10k raise to hold the same title i hold now. the catch: it’s in a city about two hours away.
i don’t have the funds to cover a relocation. but i could potentially take out a loan.
everything i know is here, and all the people and places i’m closest too are right here. but the chance to make a giant step career-wise is incredibly tempting.
also, a few of the guys i play friday night magic with work for a cable company doing outbound sales and they’re constantly on my case about working for them. they each make over 50k a year, which is a substantial amount more than i make now. that’s local and i wouldn’t have to abandon my familiarity, you know? i just don’t know if that’s a career path or just a job.
I almost forgot my briefcase!
it contains important lab results
Did you have to retrieve it from the house?
Life gave this dog lemons and this dog was like “HAHAHA TRY AGAIN NEXT TIME!”
Fuck, here’s some inspiration.

And these are the men making decisions in women’s health. Fantastic.
