Just A Little Rant

Have you ever seen the episode of How I Met Your Mother 'The Chain of Screaming'? If not let me give you a brief summery: the chain of screaming is when your boss's boss yells at your boss so then your boss yell at you then you end up screaming at someone beneath you. It is a pretty crappy system if you ask me and when I saw the episode I remember laughing so hard because I honestly didn't think such a thing could exist. I mean how could real people actually do that to one another right? 

Sadly I have come to realize that there are people exactly like this as I have recently been on the receiving end of the screams. Well less screams and more childish passive aggressive emails. But unlike the chain I don't scream at anyone below me. There is no one below me but mainly because I am not the type of person who would do that to someone else. I cannot fathom how screaming at someone could help a situation much less make you feel better. I know after it happened to me I felt miserable and belittled, which is not a feeling I would want to inflict on another person. 

Thankfully with freelance work I don't have to put up with this kind of behavior for long, once I'm done working on a job for a client who does act like this I can simply choose not to work for them again.  I don't think any amount of money is worth being treated that a way, and I guess I'm lucky that I'm in a positon where I can say enough is enough. 

Side notes it's finally Friday and I am officially taking the weekend off from all edits so I can finish our wedding invitations and hopefully get them out next week. Figures crossed!!
