Officially no longer work for the awful lawyer! Money out of my pocket sucks but not going to a toxic workplace to deal with a needling belittling asshole is so so so sweet. I also realized last night that someone I'm friendly with used to work for a restaurant that he was an investor in and she only had horror stories.
Ever. Fucking. Upward.
ETA: I didn't actually quit. He has been looking for someone who can work more days for some time and we had a very weird semi argument over me asking a question about a task despite the fact that he said, "You'll probably have some questions so it might be better to do in the office." in the email. But despite being let go or whatever, I feel pretty good about it.
