    Yeah, didn't end well to be honest.

    Got the **** kicked out of me, but they didn't come back because there was a lot of people who said I could take a hit... even though I was knocked to the ground, so more people got on my side and I was left alone. My friends were b!tches and did nothing, couldn't blame them...

    Sick Of Being Touched.

    My workplace is rampant with sexual harassment. Its one of the many reasons I hate my job. The other day I got an interview at another place. I'm not sure I can survive off this job but it would have been so nice if I could have walked in today and say I quit. I wanted to so bad...
