So... new e-mail finally. He pretty much backflipped once again on the font he wants.

He finally got down to giving some inclination of what he wanted, after beginning his e-mail with, "i had to take a break from this because I felt like I was digging a hole and getting nowhere."

Thanks for making me wait around two days for that. I made another edit and mailed it off.

He actually fucking wrote: "But I'm confused why I like the Book Antiqua bold when it's larger and the Book Antiqua bold italics when it's smaller?"

Because I'm supposed to know WHY HE LIKES SOMETHING?!

... My life has become a Seinfeld episode:


Or at least a strip from The Oatmeal.

I have no idea why I'm trying so hard to get this done, but it's like this guy is self-destructive and will never be happy. One last edit and it's over.

EDIT: OK, so I got another rather belittling e-mail saying I haven't made the changes he wanted, which I FUCKING DID. I sent him:

Dear ***********,

I changed ALL of the headlines you asked for. I have changed them every single time you have asked me to. You said you want the headlines to now be Book Antiqua bold italic. They all are.

This latest PDF reflects all of your requests.

I am sorry. I am willing to make one final edit to this and then I have to drop the project. I have put a lot of hard work into this project, re-designing 36 original pages in a matter of a week and making edits at the drop of a hat when I have been asked. I have been putting paid projects on hold, and I only feel more and more belittled with each e-mail.

Best of luck with your book.

Thank you,
***********


EDIT: Response received. He's still arguing that I haven't been making changes. I want to e-mail the president of the organization, but I really don't want to start shit.

The Fuck You still stands. I gave him the ultimatum and even went so far as to make a sampler using one of the pages from the newsletter, copying-pasting it four times over into a new InDesign document and changed the fonts four different ways and pretty much went, "Here's what they look like on the page, pick one."

He hasn't e-mailed me back in two days and wrote in his last e-mail to me, "I feel like I'm being punked."

This man is 49. He founded this Asian activist group 20 years ago. I'm not sure if I respect him any longer.

EDIT: I sent an e-mail to the president of the organization yesterday, explaining the situation as best I can and sent him the most up-to-date PDF. I haven't heard back from him either. For all I know they sent that to the printer and are going to let me just wait around for their responses that I'll never get. I was waiting by the computer for a response all day yesterday, for either of them, and got nothing. I'll be out the entire rest of the weekend, so I'll just try not to think of it.

I guess what has me worried is how this might affect other work I'm doing. I don't know. I'm certain they can't sue me. I haven't been paid and I haven't signed any contract. If there's some sort of order put out for me to surrender file, it's all theirs.

I've actually been feeling nauseous since submitting the ultimatum. I've only eaten once in the last 36 hours, and it was a chicken sandwich and fries. Should eat since I'm doing Anime Expo today. God...

Fuck this shitty health care system. Thanks to it and my surgery last year (if you guys remember, the hernia thing. Which can only be fixed via surgery), I am now $9,000 in dept.

At the same time, I can't help but feel like this is appropriate:

I am with you on the healthcare thing

In an interesting parallel... fuck dumbasses that fly the Confederate flag on the 4th of July. I may not be that patriotic but even I think that is extremely disrespectful. Normally I just find it offensive since these morons have no idea what it really stands for.

Fuck Iron Mountain. Call us back by the first week of July my ass.

About the newsletter? I heard back from the president a few days after sending him the message.


Dear **************,

I am on vacation right now. I plan on being back tomorrow, but essentially on the 4th, when I can have all of my resources at my disposal in my office. I'll have a talk with *********** then. I've told him before that he is the most difficult person I've ever had to work with. I did a chapter with him and after the chapter was over, I told him I will never do another chapter with him. He has driven out some others as well. I think that some people (like the ones before you) didn't know what they were doing, but some people definitely knew what they were doing, but ************* would change what he asks people to do, then make them feel it is their fault. If it is any consolation, you are not the only one to experience this. I also feel that ************* is unrealistic in thinking that others will work for free.

The reason why I want to wait until I get back is because I have had difficulties sending messages. I don't know if it is the motel's Wi Fi or if it is my computer, which is five years old and definitely showing signs of age. I'd hate to lose you, so if what I can do helps to address any of your feelings, I hope you can continue being involved with *******.
--**************


Haven't heard anything since from either of them. I've still got all the stuff.

In the meantime I'm trying to start on a story for the website I interviewed with a month ago, and I'm not hearing back from any sources.

So.. uh... interesting new development in my dealings with this organization.

I STILL have all of their newsletter stuff, and the guy I've been dealing with hasn't e-mailed me in a week.

I e-mailed the president yesterday. As you can tell by our last correspondence (the e-mail above), he was saying that he would talk to this guy to try and get something going. So yesterday's e-mail to him was pretty much asking if he had spoken to the guy yet and informing him that I haven't heard anything in a week and I've still got the newsletter.

This was his response:

Dear *********,
No, I haven't heard from ******* about this. However, just to let you know, I have decided to "retire" from *******insert name of the organization*******. As I mentioned to you before, ******* had alienated a number of others like he did with you, and I just felt that I no longer wanted to be caught in the middle of ******* and everyone else. I had been telling him for years that he needed to be careful not to alienate those who was willing to volunteer for our organization. Since my words didn't seem to have any effect, I thought that a dramatic deed was needed to drive home the message that he has been driving out very good people.
Take care,
*******

Interesting... gods help them all if dumbass takes over the organization. On the plus side, at least you know you aren't the only one he is driving crazy. Sucks for the organization though. Why don't they just kick him out?

I think the main reason would be because he founded the organization 20 years ago.

He still dominates the meetings, almost acting as though he's still president, and the meetings seem to most often address issues that are more of a concern to him. Everything else falls by the wayside.

Another point is that he is sort of the organization's talking head. Whenever there's a celebrity (Sarah Silverman, Adam Corolla, and M. Night Shyamalan to name a few) or organization that they want to take on, it's this guy who does all the talking and ends up on the news or on some other show or even DVD featurette stating the stance of the organization. It was this sort of thing that really made me respect him. He can be very abrasive and tenacious.

It's just... since I've started having all of these dealings with him I've started to feel less and less respect for him, and all of those things I used to think were amazing feats against "the man" now just come off like the railings of some goon complaining for no reason at all.

The Oatmeal predicted this so perfectly it's frightening.

I FINALLY heard back from the guy after more than 10 days of so-called "silent treatment."

He showed the PDFs I'd been sending him to someone else and now he wants all of the headlines to be BIGGER. That means re-adjusting EVERYTHING to accommodate the space the new headlines are going to take up.

At this point I'm making the changes SIMPLY because I'm too fucking nice. I'm not even hoping for a reference out of this.

Motherfucking shit.

I dunno if this is a "Fuck you" or a "Thank you" but god damn work has me working like a DOG. I swear this pay isn't worth the stress sometimes.

Oh I know, FUCK OLIVE GARDEN.

Do yourself a favor and don't go there to eat. Food isnt that good anyways. You are better off at Applebees or cooking your own damn food.

You know, Bitmap, your situation at Olive Garden sounds very similar to my own with Dollar General. We both started out liking the job, from what I saw of your posts anyway, and as it goes on (and on and on and on) we get more and more sick of the bullshit.

And on that note...

Fuck you, Dorothy. How you've stayed a district manager this long is beyond me. Some free advice for when you finally get fired and have to find a new job? Insults and threats are not part of good leadership.

I mean I tend to make the best out of anything that happens. But working there sometimes has that whole "You can have your cake and eat it too" kinda deal. Sometimes the days are fun and rewarding, and other times the managers there like to bite you in the ass for shit you have no control over. It's annoying as hell.

The newsletter has GONE TO THE PRINTERS!! Huzzah!!! But like any action hero I'm waiting for the false death lurch, that when I'm certain the bad guy's dead he pops back up and needs to be shot in the face.


Anyway, here's a great big FUCK YOU VERY MUCH to my Auntie Beth, my mom's sister who stole all of my grandmother's money, put it into her own bank account, and made herself the irrevocable executor of the estate.

Apparently she admitted to my mom that she's already spent half the money. She's got a SERIOUS gambling problem. Most of the presents I ever get from her for holidays and birthdays are merchandise from Indian casinos.

Since she finally got her way and got us to put my grandma's up for sale, I've been stuck at the house trying to help sort through her things while this aunt sits there and instructs Brandon to load various things into her car. She even brought her friend who took things too.

I've brought all this up to my parents and they're just so tired of dealing with her that the sooner the house is sold the sooner they can cut ties with her.

Since my grandmother hasn't been living her house for more than a year now, my parents were the ones doing the upkeep (mowing the lawn, pruning hedges, watering plants, etc). Apparently when my aunt was there a couple days ago talking with my parents and the realtor she snidely said, "I watered the plants." And my mom, the most passive, kindest person imaginable goes, "It's about time you did something!"

So yeah, fuck my aunt, my unemployed, lazy cousin, her dead-beat, smokes-like-a-chimney, uninvolved husband, her gambling habit, her shit-filled house of squalor, her greed, her 20 chihuahuas that all live in the house and piss and shit everywhere and that my grandmother (who always comes to us Friday morning reeking of her own piss and shit SINCE THEY NEVER FUCKING BATHE HER) is living with it, and above all fuck the fact that none of us are willing to go to court to try to stop her because we're more worried about family than money (at least this part of the family anyway).

God...

Yay, printers, and yay your mom!

Rogue, be the brave one and report her ass. I don't know if you personally would be able to file a lawsuit, but you can report her for the neglect and that can lead to other stuff.

Fuck you Amazon wireless. Explain how it is wise to use a delayed activation for the phones you sell and then not tell anyone (including the network you're selling the phones for)? It was nice to save $100 on the phone, but so NOT worth the hassle we've had to deal with.

Over the last few days I've gone through a winding down on my issues with Beth. The other day Brandon and I ended up at my grandmother's packing things up and helping them get the furniture out. It's been obnoxious in its own way, but at the same time, all this has done is made me feel sorry for Lola. It's not that she needs the money from the sale of her house or anything, but I'm sure it hurts to see all of her things being divvied up as though she were dead and all that mattered was how much one could get for these things.

The last time I saw her she was near crying and telling me that I really should take a few things because they'd be better off at my house (my aunt is notorious for taking way more than she needs and then letting it rot in her house, garage, or backyard, just so she can have the pleasure of knowing you DON'T have it). She also started crying that she thinks she's going crazy because she doesn't understand anything any more.

She didn't come to our house this weekend because she supposedly didn't want to. I'm sure it's more than my aunt was aware that I'm paid to stay home on Fridays to watch her so she'd rather I wasn't paid at all. If this is the attitude, I'm glad I'm getting a job that will probably take up Fridays.

At this point, I really don't know what to do other than try to look forward to leaving the country in October.


Anyway...

Fuck Facebook ads. For the past few months, EVERY freaking time I'm signed on there's an ad on the side for engagement rings. EVERY time. WHY?! It's not like I'm posting about engagements or that any of my friends are.

Does it notice that I've been in a relationship for 7 years? First off, I'm NOT interested. I've clicked all their stupid boxes saying so. I've even written in that I'm not interested in that right now in the stupid optional box. Now I'm just clicking "Offensive."

Secondly, isn't it traditionally the man's place to go out and spend an exorbitant amount of money on a ring? All this does is either make the girls depressed or annoy the shit out of them.

I know what you mean. In my case I understand the wedding/bridal stuff because my status says "engaged" and it's playing to that.

What pisses me off is the stuff for babies. Seriously, where is that coming from?

I'm just all kinds of pissed off with Facebook lately because of their little changes. The new chat thing that keeps popping up is so fucking annoying that I want to find the person that thought of it and strangle them. Let's see them put THAT on a fucking ad.

I feel so bad for Lola after reading that. I don't blame her for being upset with how badly her daughter treats her. I thought my aunts treated my grandmother bad, but it is nothing like that. Poor woman.

Fuck you, person that thinks you can get snotty with me in my turf.

I asked a question on facebook that mentioned the Life of Pompey (as in Pompey Magnus) by Plutarch. One of my friends replied with "Pompeii. It's spelled Pompeii."

Pompeii is the city that was covered in ash when Mount Vesuvius erupted. Pompey was a Roman General who was first friends with and then fought against Caesar. Why would their be a book about the life of a city? How do you not remember there is a person with that name (which is pronounced differently than Pompeii in the first place)? I mean, I know California's education system sucks but I remember the name Pompey from high school.

More specifically, when you are one of my friends and you know that I studied Rome for four years, how is it that you automatically assume that I would get the name wrong. Or are you that used to the morons in your art classes that you think you are just better than everyone else?
