“puppychick's Pick #500”


Description from puppychick labratbecky: It was one of those days at work where I was digging through the gravel to get at the Amethyst. I need to quit for my personal sanity. Time to make another crackleroot masterpiece. :)

    What is it with you and old crackleroot anyway? Does he visually display your frustration? I’m.guessing you’ve made many picks with him. I’ve onky seen a few.
    Sorry work was so yucky today. The PITACW again? Believe me I get that.

    Good morning! I hope today is a better day. Did you ever make a gargoyle bracelet? Crackleroot and gargoyles with gorgeous colours (perhaps neon) would give the grinches cat fits, I bet. Have fun with that pickI

    Becky, congrats on #500! What a beautiful combo — with or without that fun crackle root skull!!! Here’s to many more great picks from you, my friend! Hugs! :D

    P.S. When the Meanies at work start to get to you, just kill them with kindness — it’ll drive them crazy! LOL I also like Jacki’s idea about grinning — try doing it in a mysterious way just to torture them….. ;)

    LMBO at all your wonderful comments and suggestions. Deb, Laud came up with anger management jewelry with Crackleroot. I LOVED her idea so I started using him to depict my frustration and, yes, anger at the people who delight in torturing others. I stood up to one of them when she was tormenting a coworker. The coworker’s comment to me was “you saved my life”. The tormenter went straight to the boss and tattled so of course I got hauled in so bosslady could hear my side. I did not get into trouble, the meanie did. It just takes so much out of me to go through that because I do not like confrontation but I can’t just stand there and let them do that. Does this all sound a little like kindergarten yet?

    Eeka Mouse says:

    It really is a crying shame that the schoolyard’s not the only place bullying occurs. Thank you for standing up to the bully!!!

    (I also think you have selected the world’s most attractive gravel)

    Deb Harding says:

    Becky I finally read what happened at work. Okay obviously the tormentor person has power and anger issues. The only way this person feels good about themselves is by putting others down. I understand you don’t like confrontation but this part of what is making work so unbearable at times. You are holding all this in with no outlet. You cant keep that up. It sounds to me like you did the good and right thing by standing up to this person. The one you hekped agreed the boss agreed. Instead of feeling like something has been taken oit of you you should feel good for trying to keep the workplace a safe environment for everyone. All issues with this bully should be documented from now on. That person needs to be confronted with their problem and receive training for how to work effectively with others or should go.

    so sorry you had a bummer of a day at work, Becky….we’ll all have to master the Crackleroot grin!(hey, what/who is the Crackleroot anyway, is it an old tale/legend etc?)….congrats on 500! do you have heaps of unpublished picks as well, like i do; tho. i figure all yours are fit for publication!

  17. puppychick  labratbecky
    puppychick labratbecky says:

    Deb, we have been documenting this person ad nauseum. Apparently she hasn’t been “warned” enough but bosslady told me it has now gotten to that point (enough warnings) and I am supposed to do even more documentation. Allegedly if (when) meanie does it again, she will be in deep doodoo. I will believe it when I see it. I think the only thing that would ever save us is 24 hour camera and sound recording of our lab area.

    puppychick labratbecky says:

    And, yeah, I can’t take the hostility. We work on eggshells some days.

  19. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    I do understand believe me. This is why I’m unemployed and not my District Manager. Even though I had documented her abusive behaviour toward the end. If I had started 1. But oh well…I wouldn’t want that job even without her.

  20. puppychick  labratbecky
    puppychick labratbecky says:

    They always get away with it. :( and no, any place that tolerates that is not a good place to work no matter what.

  21. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    Yea there were other issues. Like not being told the truth about pay and milage reimbursement and drivetime pay in the interview. Then my DM bum rushed me into signing a bunch of stuff on her laptop saying her battery was dying. So I basically signed away my arguement for the things I was promised in the interview. Oh well…you live you learn.

  22. Frida
    Frida says:

    :( They digg their own grave… Glad you stood up for your co-worker!

    Becky congrats on pick 500, crackle root cracks me up and the colors are beautiful!
