The msg that I put at the top disappeared after sending (This has happened for the 1st time now twice recently).
I was "released" from this assignment by Sedona Staffing Services when the named supervisors pulled me into an interrogation room (along with the named female in a different one), by Ericka (spell check) and Joyce, 2 African-American women, who our class has had no interaction thus far, and Ericka came at me as an aggressor, as though I'd done something wrong, and I defended myself--detailing, in fact, what the correct protocol would've been in my professional experience, in dealing with the situation below.
When I mentioned being attacked and then fired for it, they said, "You're not being fired," especially when, finally, Joyce held space for what actually was said, and they said, "Ohhhh."
Then, the 3rd supervisor (a Caucasian woman also from the day before), came in and was ready to jump all over me before Ericka and I realized I'd just used the wrong name while explaining what had happened. That was interesting.
I had given the (-->1.10--Typo) Todd, the lead trainer, my resume today. I was told when they turned around from my "everything's squashed" meeting with them (It was for me yesterday already), they've added to the list that I "attacked Todd." Even Renee at Sedona Staffing Services laughed when I said, "For handing him my Resume?"
The security guard, both of whom (2 males), I had great rapport with. When Renee walked me out, I said, "Hey! I've just been illegally discriminated against! I'll never see U again!" The older one said, "U have your badge! U can come back whenever U want!" He was serious (This is so classic for this situation). The other one said, "Yeah!" And Renee didn't blink about it. I turned to all 3 of them and said, "Here--U should take this." And only once turned as I walked out the door, "The only way I'd come back is if they made me CEO, which is really what it's looking like should happen."
And Ericka knew "all about being racially discriminated against" since she's Black. Even though I had to tell her that racial discrimination can be meted out by anyone of any color.
Feel the ripple effects of what has happened to me, Dubuqueland.
And for all the leaders on the list, myself included, "It's not US. It's YOU. The weak, sick, ugly, and disintegrated leading is the problem. Not the few brave or destined." A woman with illegitimate children, sounds like by multiple men, who described herself to the class as "lost" (and she wasn't just talking about having no Business or IT background) is now the bar-setting standard at McGraw-Hill (headquarters in Burr Ridge [Chicago], IL), not me. If the shoe fits, wear it.
Is this really the world I was groomed to lead?
This is what happens when people R not in their right places. And the more it happens, the worse it gets.
I don't think much of humanity or care much about anything or anyone, at this point.
I'll be back at Carlos O'Kelly's on Monday since John (the GM) was my first contact after this happened just a couple hours ago. After that, it remains to be seen.
I want you all to be very clear about what ignorance and evil does to our minds, bodies, hearts, and souls--the fabric of society broken, stained, and unwound by the blood of our saints and wayshowers.
It will not last.

I am wanting to gather an idea of what the next 6 mos. to a year might look like, scheduling-wise, and if you don't know exactly yet, what your intentions are so that I can remain open for individual work. Obviously, I hope the number of practitioners who I am honored enough to work with on these levels grows and becomes regularly scheduled.
Also, on the Power Yoga front, I spoke with a landlord today (about sacred living spaces) who mentioned that he just happens to have some storefronts down by the library for a very attractive price.
Until then, we keep building.
Other than getting into it with some litter next 2 me who, during our dress code discussion today, tried telling me I should shop for kids be4 going shopping myself, to which I said, "Do what U want, but if U wear whatever U want & get fired, how much is that going 2 help your kids?" "Well, when U have kids, you'll know." "I probably won't have kids (The immediacy of my response shocked me)," I said, folding my arms (She is half German, half Native American or something, which makes this interesting). The guy we're both kind of cool with, who sits on her other side, also is a single parent, from what it sounds like, & is about my age, said, "That's smart." She turned to him, who related to me later (after I moved seats--& had the trainer's support 4 doing so 1st thing this morning [The lady also wreaks of smoke]) that he was also about to move away to not sit by her, & said, "It's becuz she's SELFISH" and something else I couldn't hear. I said, "WHAT did U just say?!" She said, "Nothing." She paused & said, "Just because I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth." I said, "You don't know anything about my life, so don't judge me." She went silent. Then I said, "If you say anything like it again, I'll go straight 2 the Supervisors on U--pause--or straight to HR." "You know what? I've dropped it, and so should U." I said, "No YOU already said it, so it's already done. YOU need to SHUT UP."
A few moments later, I couldn't even sit next 2 her anymore, so I whisked by one of the female trainers who's a Theatre major who I got the same idea about, in terms of her relationship 2 me, "You should ask that lady what she just said."
This spurred her going to the actual Supervisory team we'll actually be working with. They called a brief hold on class & then came in and made a preschool-level announcement that we need to not disrupt class or say inappropriate things or ask questions that don't pertain directly 2 the lesson.
To which I pulled said female trainer, then, out to the hall be4 lunch (The head trainer even commented that that talk made the room somewhat like a "morgue"), then laying into her about levels of professionalism, stating that it was 1 thing to have a non-IT/Business person try to judge, lecture, and then YELL at me about making babies and how to spend my money?!!!?!?, but to have 2 "Supervisors" walk in and try to blanket lecture the class on what'd just happened, without separating the attacker out to call her on it--That BETTER not have my name on it because if McGraw-Hill is saying that they'll throw a rape victim in jail with the rapist, we're on to one interesting world. And I'm done. I'll have nothing to do with it.
Oddly, when I returned to the house, the Sam-Dad & Sarah-Mom were being nicer to me. She had made vegetarian chili, were going to some memorial 4 my grandma who died, as some of U know, earlier this yr., & apparently R leaving me the house this weekend. After breaking down & telling her/he was listening that A.) I think I'd found my apt., B.) this story, & C.) wondered aloud if anyone had ever taken someone from ground level & taken them directly to CEO--that that's about what it looked like should happen, & D.) that at least I didn't get fired or ganged up on here, which is a good sign. I mean, in every other part of the country where I got bullied, fired, or mentally/spiritually raped by some trash--Black, White, Mexican--doesn't matter--I'd look around on a day like 2day 4 support, and all there'd be was more trash!!! So guess who'd get tortured & thrown out 4 being the anomaly & making everybody look bad?!!!
Hopefully this finally drove that pt. home.
I'm finished with trash of all colors. I need 2 be where I belong. And that's up very, very high.
Other than that, in terms of today, I killed it.
In Servant Leadership, As Always,

Meeting 2day with the CEO from Sedona Staffing Services & the Director? of HR from McGraw-Hill, at the CEO's request, regarding the incident at McGraw-Hill--both women, I believe, also originally from Dubuque.
Very happy with all aspects of its proceedings/outcome.
Please remember, I don't do facebook, twitter, etc., currently, despite requests.
