I really don’t know how to say this delicately. I fucking hate you. I hate everything about you. I cringe when I see your name in my inbox or on my caller ID. I hate that you cc me on every single email. I hate that you emailed somebody at 4:30 PM on Friday afternoon, and just cc’ed me on your email to them this morning asking why you haven’t heard back. I hate that you refused to use most the vendors in my network, and now I am left to clean up their mess (already) and we haven’t even reached your wedding day yet. I hate that you refuse to let me manage your expectations. To put it simply bridey, I hate you.
Yes. I am a bitter mess this morning. I had the most an amazing wedding weekend with a lovely couple and their families, only to have it tarnished today with eight emails about nothing from this truly crazy bride. I referenced her last week… you know the one I want to fire? Yeah, her. And I’ve done this for too long to let it get to me the way it has been, but I just can’t help it. Seriously, in all of my years planning, I have never worked with somebody so manipulative, so irrational and so compulsive. She has taken the joy so far out of the wedding planning that I just want it to fucking get here already so that I can delete her from my life. And the crazy thing? Because I am such a professional, I would put money on the fact that she has NO IDEA that I don’t like her. And THAT’S why I can’t fire her…
Yeah huh… I’m that good. But, this is exactly why I need Bitchless Bride. I need to vent. I am the vendor vent today. Because brideys if you take anything away from this post, just go back to the basics.
1. Basic respect.
2. Basic common decency.
3. Basic manners.
4. Basic professionalism.
Oh, and one other thing… if you tell me that you just don’t understand why nobody likes you at work, it’s not because they are intimidated by your intelligence and wit. It’s because they hate you too…
