Have you ever had someone you work with say something in front of your boss that throws you under the bus and makes them look like the hero at the same time?!?!?! And has that particular statement ever been a false statement on top of it all?!!??! Don't you just want to pull your shank out of the closet, dust it off, and CUT A B****?!?!?!

Well I know I sure did today, so I am here to give a little warning to anyone out there like this particular individual I dealt with today….. If you don't want to read a pissed SeƱorita lecture for a hot second, go ahead and X out now, thanks for coming, have a nice day, see you the next time around. However you should take a second and think first, because if you don't want to read this, it means you probably can't relate, and if you can't relate, you are probably one of these problem people and therefore YOU NEED TO READ THIS!!!

For those of you who can relate and/or have decided to stick around, Here. We. Go.

SOOOOOOOO today at work, a coworker (not the same one I plan to cut) and I were working on filing, organizing, calling, and closing special orders that had been placed at the store. During this process we came across an issue where the printed sheets didn't match the records in the computer (which is much more accurate). So we came up with a solution together and then decided to share it with others in hopes that it would be put into action, boy where we in for a world of disappointment.

Since we apparently live in the f****** stone age, we are not able to do things the electronic route and must have a paper trail because that is the only reliable method (which is currently failing us on a regular basis, but hey, apparently it's the only reliable thing we have so what the hell do I know). Anyway, so when we tried to explain what the issue was and why we were talking about doing things a different way, our coworker (who I am going to stab in the eye with an ice pic) starts repeating himself on how the system works as if we are f****** idiots!!!! Now here is the beauty of this, the girl who is trying to help me explain this situation, trained this a**hole on this freaking system. But apparently we are idiots and he is the expert!!!!!!

Long story short, we finally threw in the towel and agreed to do it his way but it was going to take hours on Hours on HOURS!!! And we were already closed and everyone was ready to go home, so we decided to set it to the side and I was going to setup camp in a corner somewhere tomorrow and take care of it all. We had mentioned this to the douche and he said that would be fine so that we could all go home. So clearly we were all in agreement at this point.

So when our boss walked over to check in, the two of us (me and the good coworker, not the douche) began to explain to her what the problem was and before we could even finish, Sir Douchebag cut us off and said, "I got it handled. I am going to stay and take care of it." So we get a look from our boss like well why are you guys deciding you get to go home? Why aren't you staying later too? And then when I said, "I thought we all decided we will take care of it tomorrow." He replied with "No I am going to take care of it tonight. I will just stay and knock it out. There will be nothing tomorrow because I will get it done. It's on my shoulders" And he says this with a smirk on his face like he is some sort of f****** hero who has just saved the day!!!!!! When in fact he has no idea what he is doing because he doesn't even understand what the problem is!!!! And so our boss turns to my coworker and myself and says "you guys can go" with disappointment and an annoyed with us type of tone.

SOOOOOOOOOOOO to all you people out there who throw others under the bus or tell stories to try to make yourself seem like the hero, remember this…….

There will come a point in time when you need the help of that person you have crossed, best of luck getting it!!! Their attitude towards you is now in the most negative of negative ways. They could care less what you need and they are certainly never going to voluntarily help you.

Oh! And! If something should ever, and I mean EVER, happen to go wrong in the near or far away future of you two working together and you had anything to do with it, you better believe when asked, that person will say your name all day as being involved with whatever the problem is that occurred. Because there is no loyalty anymore. You took it to that level. You started this war. You tried to play the hero and it came back to bite you and we will laugh when it does. Because you're a piece of S*** and you deserve what's coming to you.

Those of us who have been screwed over may not go out of our way to make sure you get what you deserve, but we are certainly NOT going to do anything to prevent it or help you out in any way shape or form either.

And I don't care how long it takes for those s*** heads to get what they deserve, it could be years after the fact. But someone who has been screwed over never forgets and years later when you need their help, it won't be there because they don't like you and their attitude towards you didn't change with time, chances are they just grew tolerances towards your ignorance.

So the next time you are about to mention someone's name to your boss, or anyone of that matter, in terms of who is responsible for a problem that occurred, you might want to think twice. Because those who are scorned never forget and will watch you hang yourself with enjoyment every chance they get from that moment forward. And some may even get a little vengeful and hand you the rope. So watch yourself!!

Alright guys, rant over.

If any of you can relate to this, first off, I'm sorry, but secondly, tell me about it. How did you handle it? Has that a**hole got what he or she deserves yet and maybe even more than once? Did you enjoy watching them suffer a bit? Let me know in the comments below.

Hello, my name is Ericka Eaton, welcome to my new blog!! 

I would like to take this first blog to just introduce myself and provide a bit of background. I am 23 years old and I am currently a full-time college student at the University of Missouri in St. Louis. I am studying Communications with a specialty in Public Relations. I also work at the University Bookstore and I am also an intern in the Public Information Department at Kaskaskia College. 

I am on the Executive Board for SEMPA (Student Electronic Professionals Association) at my school, I hold the Secretary position. I have my own radio show at The U ~ UMSL Radio called The Struggle. The show is all about the struggles of everyday life with a comical twist but I might be changing the name soon and taking the show in a different direction. 

I am a writer and photographer for my university's newspaper, The Current. And I am applying for a new position as assistant editor for the Opinions or Features section, so fingers crossed!! 

I also make youtube videos on a weekly basis, which you can watch here:: - I mostly just talk about my life, kind of like I plan to here but I am thinking that this is going to be more of a diary where I really think about things and evaluate and process the things happening in my life. Plus I am hoping to blog more often than I vlog lol. 

Let's see what else's……

Oh!! I am trying really hard to get into the Entertainment industry. My dream job would be to have my own talk show like Ellen or become a TV Personality like Guilana. But I also thoroughly enjoy acting and am actively pursuing it as some sort of career. 

Well I think that is quite enough for now, don't you????? I am sure we will all learn more about myself as this blog goes on (myself included) but I hope I get to know you readers too. I am hoping this will be a safe place for thought and reflection, good and bad, happy and sad, funny and serious. So please tell me about yourself as well and your thoughts, opinions, and relatable life experiences too!
