everyone likes gossip.
gossip sells magazines and creates personas.
as much as we pretend we don’t,
our ears perk up when we hear other folk’s business.
i’ll be 100 with ya.
i like to hear the “he gets down” talk.
i never use it to out anyone,
but i’ll know who my eyes are set on to entertain in my foxhole.
forests and foxholes confirm all the wolves/hybrids/and foxes.
well i knew i’d be the gossip of why i’m not at my last job.
i thought i kept my exit pretty quiet.
thing 2 called me last night with another story…
are you okay?
i heard you got fired.”
“i didn’t get fired.
i was laid off.”
you been the talk of the town these last few days.
your old boss apparently been checking up on you…”
as flattered as i am,
why is he checking up on me????
i’m certainly not checking up on him.
she told me how he has been telling everyone that i was fired after a month.
some of the mailroom wolves i “thought” i was cool with found it funny too.
randoms came asking her about me and told her what my old boss was saying.
she said she didn’t know,
but wanted to hear the truth from my own mouth.
“its rather strange everyone is talking about you.
you haven’t been here since last year.”
“well they can say what they want.
i don’t care.”
fact: i didn’t care to an extent.
deep down inside,
i was embarrassed.
i thought that job was “supposed” to be my door.
the door to happiness after such a terrible situation at that last job.
the big “middle finger” to that same old boss.
if i was trife,
it would be one thing.
hell if i was bragging or acting like i won the lottery.
i was very humble.
i kept my movements really quiet when i got the job.
if my old boss wasn’t in my shit,
no one would have known what happened to me there.
the story is “out there”.
thing 2 said it got worse since they got rid of me.
misery does love company.
she said she is even thinking of making her exit soon.
they can all enjoy that story,
but i hope they all know their positions aren’t permanent either?
God will have my talents shine somewhere else.
lowkey: i’m really taking the freelance life into consideration.
the foxhole has sent me some great leads.
i’ve been working on the site resume to send it out.
i’m feeling i’m done with the “9 to 5” life.
