The Most Bizarre Job I Ever Worked At

I am thinking back in my work experience many jobs ago to one particular temporary job that I worked at in Seattle.  Out of all the Jobs I worked at was not just crazy but for me this felt like a most frightening experience.

The two day job was at the Starbucks corporate office.  The person in question was a supervisor.  She was tall, overweight, possessed hazel green eyes that seemed somewhat possessed and she was a fruitcake to the highest degree!

This crazy lady had an obsession with singer Clay Aiken.   For those of you not familiar with who that is, Clay Aiken had placed first or second on that show American idol way back in it’s earlier seasons.

The Supervisor had it bad for this singer, here is a list of what I noticed and see if you all out there don’t think that this lady was several cards shy of a full deck.

  1. Clay Aiken Posters pasted everywhere within the dept. On cabinet doors, inside cabinet doors, on the copier machine, above the coffee machine ( at Starbucks we got free coffee)
  2. There were Clay Aiken posters on the ceiling!
  3. Where ever there was space, or a nook, alcove, there was a good ole picture of C.A.  smiling up at me
  4. Also he was on her wallpaper on the computer.
  5. Inside both of her forearms?   Yup you guessed it tattooed on both the name Clay on one on the other Aiken.     CREEPY!  This broad was all kinds of crazy and should have had her own special padded room at the states psychiatric hospital. FRIGHTENING!     A few summers back I saw the creepy troll on a bus headed to Fremont,  it was all I could do to NOT scream in terror & run like hell off that bus!  As I was getting off she was coming right behind me.   If you happen to run into this psycho RUN!
  6. That job took the cake! Only in Seattle.   Oh one last thing, this broad had a lot of enablers, all of those co workers acted as if nothing was wrong.  Insane.

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down.

If you've read this far I will leave my email in case you want to leave me a msg. Those that are rude will get deleted immediately. Contact:
