I will never forget how far my jaw dropped and how many tears filled my eyes when a previous manager referred to me as her personal Ugly Betty. Looking back I think the situation is funny, but 6 years ago it crushed me.
My manager had put me in charge of monitoring her email while she was on vacation. When her friend responded to an email in which she referred to me as her personal Ugly Betty I was crushed.
I had finally gotten over the Ricky Lake comparison I’ve got for years and now UGLY BETTY! I of course told all my friends about this incident and received the sympathy I was seeking.
Last night I was digging through a box and came across this collage my amazing friend Erin Brazil made to cheer me up. It’s fabulous, just as she is!
I’d like to think that 6 years later my skin is thick enough to not let a situation like this rattle my emotions. I sure hope so!
Anyone ever compare you to someone that made you cry? LOL
