I hereby indemnify myself.

Complaining about employers is a perennial activity.

Winter, spring, summer, or fall, it doesn’t matter, all employers suck year round. Yes, you read that right. In this current post-truth, post-Trump hella toxic environment ALL EMPLOYERS SUCK.

I wanted to make that clear now, while we are all cheery and filled with the spirit of the holiday season.

This is a joke, right?

I think I might have lost my job.

As underhanded and noncommittal as everyone is, it’s hard to tell. No one will give me a straight answer, and no one will put anything in writing. I got suspended without pay, but just checked my bank account. I got paid this morning.

That’s pretty typical from what I’ve seen these past 3 months.

Of course, 3 months is nowhere near…

Working on my speech for the Night of Power, the Day of Judgement.

I’m sick and tired of the torture. I’m reclaiming my power.

For decades I have admonished, chastised, laid hands on…

By gosh, people suck. I mean, really suck.

Either that, or my program parameters are way off from the reality that people would be in reality, should they be allowed to exist in the reality.

Maybe I did get a little prejudiced that human beings are inherently evil and selfish. …

Praying for help. Praying that you will go away.

Dear Demon,

You are very good at your job.

I am at my wits end. I am afraid of you. I’ve known you long enough. I’ve seen your methods. I understand that you must be very successful at your work.

You must have an impeccable history of taking emotionally healthy, successful people and driving them to their knees and…

Including a very brief and skewed history of time from my perspective.

I have to confess to a communications experiment gone horribly wrong,

or a communications experiment that was greatly successful, depending on your point of view.

I can be held directly responsible for the persecution of over 400 million people, Christians and Muslims.

As the Angel of Annunciation, pointing out to Mary that Jeshua would be called the Son of God has gotten over 350 million people killed. …
