The Heroes And The Hierarchy
I worked from home before it was cool. And I have to admit my supervisor, Jet is kind of demanding, she’s indecisive, loud, and she micromanages. She shows me no respect and quite frankly she’s really lazy.
Covert Narcissism and Sensitivity to Criticism
Nobody likes to be criticized for no reason, it’s mean and hurtful. But constructive criticism is there to help people learn and prevent them from making mistakes a second time.

Covert Narcissism and the Adders of Cornwall
I used to live in Cornwall in England, it’s a pretty place, it’s not a friendly place but it is gorgeous. The people are rude and make you feel as welcome as a UTI but the views take the edge off of that.
