I Saw You

Badge Prude

Thanks to you, I have the grumpiest and unflattering picture for an ID badge out of all the employees. How was I supposed to know that the dress code here looked down upon anything remotely flattering and 'God forbid' ... with style. So what, my ruffle blouse was sleeveless. That does not give you the right to tell me 'You better put on that sweater' for my picture, alluding to my shoulders, which were apparently baring just way too much 'skin.' Er, eh hem! 'You better?' This is 2009, lady.

I don't know why you feel so compelled to be such a royal betch. You are the Human Resources RECEPTIONIST for F's sake. So when I come in, as a new employee, having to take my picture for your damn security badge that is required, you can wipe off the fucking smug that makes your face look bloated, because inside I am really laughing about your unhappy nature and the camel toe your elastic waistband pants are creating. You are too young to be such a dowdy biotch and too much of a bitch to work in Human Resources. 'You better!'
