  No One Bats .500 I worry. I know, I know, you think I'm nuts but I do. I actually lose sleep over this. Here's the thing. I'm responsible for a lot of people. It's my business partner and my jobs to take care of them. I try very hard, but I don't always succeed. I have a staff that has insecurity issues, babies, sick parents, sick grandparents and parents at the same time, retirement, not enough money to pay bills, tons of talent but an invisible wall that impairs that I can't do anything about, talent, walls and the like. They are the people I'm paid to take care of. I take my job seriously. Sometimes they blame me, and they don't think I know that they do, but they do. I'm not so naive. As long as they don't knife me in the back, I'm on their side because I try to deal with their best interests regardless if they think I do or not. They are on my team, or they aren't. That's self-preservation. The thing is, I do want to take care of them. I don't always succeed.

Hang in there!!
 
It is never one persons fault when things don't go well. You can't solve every problem so forgive yourself first and last thing every day.
 
Thanks guys.
 
I'll bet you're not an asshat boss. Don't stress. Instead, say this mantra, "My staff is wonderful. They work hard. They are successful." Remember, the Law of Attraction.
 
I can't imagine what it would be like to have people depend on me for their livliehood. I also can't imagine what it would be like to be somebody's boss in general. I would probably care too much.

I bet you're a good boss, too.

Just when are y'all coming to Naishful again?
 
Very, very soon, Sista.
And Kaths, thanks so much. I try.
 
Very soon as did you win MY date with Short & Fat?!?!?!?
 
I will back out gracefully, Sista.
He is all yours, but darn if he isn't a cutie.
 
No, I play fair. You've offered up real money while I've just offered my wit and charm.
