Okay, I confess, I came here to vent, really, and I was just hoping the prompt would work for me to vent about what I particularly want to vent about. And it kind of does. Residue. There are people who are like residue. Kind of scummy. Kind of ick. There's one kind of ick, of course, like creep ick, and then there's another kind of ick, people who expect the worst of others. I don't like people like this. I have one such person kind of on the periphery of my life, and I don't like this person very much. I try to see the best in them, but they don't do the same for me. And because they see the worst in others and assume the worst intention in others, they are...I don't know what word I'm thinking of. But it makes interactions with them more difficult, it makes it tough to choose one's words because one knows that they will find the worst interpretation of them. I fucking hate working with this person, but I'm not willing to give up all control over the thing that we work together on. At some point, I think, we will split the thing into two smaller things, and then I can part ways with this person forever and good riddance. I'm just annoyed right now because this person took my innocuous comment on a thing and assumed the worst about my intentions and I just want to say BITCH WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE AND WHO DO YOU THINK I AM! So yeah, I'm annoyed, and I just needed to get that off my chest, and I hope I've been vague enough here that no one except for @improv will have any idea whom I'm talking about.
