Sometimes it just doesn’t pay to stand back up after being knocked down.
My boss has this thing during staff meetings – everyone has to give a “happy thought”; something they’re happy about that day.
Well, with my depression, i don’t always have one and i refuse to say something lame like “I’m glad I’m alive” (doubly since some days i’m NOT).
My boss dinged me on this during my performance review a couple months ago. Then this morning, he starts the meeting with his “happy moment”. And with this big grin he says “And we’ll start with Marc”.
Well today i don’t have a “happy thought”, and i say i don’t. So he says i can leave the meeting and return to my desk because he only wants people willing to participate. He humiliates me in front of my co-workers because i won’t bow and kiss his… well anyway.
