Holy shit... My boss went into another tailspin today This time it was because I changed a few words in her document before sending it back to her. BUT SHE ASKED ME TO CONTENT EDIT THE DAMN DOCUMENT IN THE FIRST PLACE! She sent me a 1,000 word email to me saying how much I "messed up" by changing a few words, and then she called me down to her office to berate me face-to-face! Woman is insane.

Today my boyfriend locked his keys in his car. He tried to call me to bring him a spare set, but I had my phone on vibrate and didn't see that he called until about an hour later. Holy shit... that mofo went into a complete tailspin when he got home, and bitched me out for literally HOURS about how he can't count on me for anything... blah blah blah. AND THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME ANYTHING LIKE THIS HAS EVER HAPPENED! What a fuckin' nut job!

A loss of emotional control sometimes resulting in emotional collapse.
She’d been going to therapy to try to stop these
kinds of tailspins.
