Is There Any Worse Pain Than Watching Your Children Hurt And Knowing You Can't Help Them?

I cannot begin to tell you how much it hurts to have to write this post. I've tried so hard to protect both of my children over the years, without actually over protecting and thus, smothering them. However, most parents realize that no matter what you do, there are just times when you cannot in any way help your child. No matter how badly you want to.

Click here for the first part of the story...

Snooty Daughter was fired after her first day on the job, BY EMAIL, from the asshole's Crackberry. He didn't even have the decency to do it on the phone or the computer or wait until Monday. He emailed her at 10:30 PM Friday night, after her first horrendous day, telling her she was history. He was also kind enough to tell her someone else would be taking her place on Monday, since she couldn't hack it without prior training (which he promised her he'd do, but did not). Is that sleazy or what? I just think it's deplorable, but certainly no less than I would expect from some Hollyweirdo jerk off. I would love to hurt this man and just before he passes out, I could tell him what a heartless void of a prick he is and that he is going to burn in Hell someday for the pain he has inflicted on others throughout his life (because with people like this, you know this wasn't the first time he's hurt someone).

However, once I got over crying about the pain this put my baby girl through, and once I got over my initial anger, I realized that surely this must be a blessing in disguise and that she probably unwittingly dodged a huge bullet (you know, like the size of a small missile). It just means that it wasn't meant to be and that there is something else out there that is meant for her. I firmly believe that everything in life happens for a reason or to direct you down a road that you would not have otherwise chosen. Life is so fragile and the road is riddled with many bumps and curves we are never ready for. I suppose that's what we really try to prepare our children for. The way they handle life's little difficulties. I must tell you that SD is handling all of this far better than I. I want to hurt this man. Badly. She has already accepted this outcome (after her initial Tears Fest) and moved on, albeit in an unemployed mode. I want to go find this dickhead and slap the snot out of him, then I want to smack the shit out of him. I can wear plastic. You know. Like Dexter. For at least several days or more. Okay, make it a month. Can you tell which one of us is the adult? Right. It's not me.

So, the only joy I can get out of this is to tell you who this asshole is, since I couldn't really tell you before, for ethical reasons. Now, as I toss caution out the car window at 90 miles per hour, I shall reveal the company's name to the world with a great deal of pleasure. Surely I should have realized the *little people* are sent packing every hour of the day, every day of the week, every week of the year, by the Big Guys who think the world only revolves because of their presence in it. I just thank God that is only true in their world, and not in mine. It certainly isn't true in the Real World, rather like the movies themselves, which are, of course, ruled by the Power Of The Almighty Buck. That is truly the only reality in Hollyweird. The Almighty Buck AND Perfection (by way of good plastic surgeons and genius cameramen). This would explain why there are so many homeless and crazy people living on the streets in L.A. They are probably all fallen rejects of some heartless asshole who told them they had a job and once they stepped onto the Magic Carpet for a ride, it was whisked out from underneath them with the precision of a master surgeon, therefore giving them a boot up the rear end wazzoo, as a farewell. I mean, how special is that?

Granted, if one plans to move to California and try squeaking their way into *The Industry*, then one must have skin like a rhinoceros. Although I would probably have jumped off the nearest tall building without a second thought, my sweet SD, just picked herself up and is trying to move along, not letting it effect her for more than a 24 hour period, which is now over. Still, I am the one having a problem with this and being the Scorpion that I am, I want to make someone else hurt. No. I want to SEE SOMEONE IN PAIN over this. Unfortunately, that would not help anything and only serves to piss me off even more, so I will, with great regret, let this matter go. But, if I ever get the chance to serve this man's revenge up cold, then I will do so with more style than anyone ever has or ever will. Pfffft! As If. Okay, I just made myself laugh like a looney over that statement.

Perhaps this means that her original *after college plan* of going to law school back here in Texas is suddenly more of a reality than I initially thought. Hey, that can't be all bad, right? A Texas girl has her adventure on The West Coast and decides to return to Texas, where her whole life and adoring family awaits her. In A Perfect World, huh? Whatever she decides, we will always love her and think she's the most brilliant star in the sky. Who gives a crap what the Hollyweirdos think. That man was probably a pervert anyway. I mean if the shoe fits....

It still just makes my heart ache, especially when she told me she cried herself to sleep Friday night. The night she was going to go out to celebrate her new job. What a coward that guy is. Wimpy piece of trash. Okay, I think I'm done now, lol.

TSannie said...

Kills kills KILLS me when my babies are hurt! I want to hurt the source of their pain permanently and thoroughly. I feel your pain, SP oh do I feel your pain!

Snooty Primadona said...

Yes, I only want to squash them like the bugs they are. Until they are less than ash. Oh Wait. Nevermind. I think I'd prefer to keep them alive and torture them. Forever & Ever. That's just the way I roll these days. Pfffft! What am I saying? I've felt like this from the moment each one was born, lol.

I assume this stOOpid man had no idea he was firing the daughter of a menopausal woman who would rather bite his head off than eat Creme Brulee. Alright, I'm done. Seriously. Thanks for coming along as company on my rant trip. Whew! I'm exhausted.

scargosun said...

I am telling you, seriously with all the belief in my heart...
Karma is a bitch and she will get you in the end.
This means that asshole will get his.
I am proud to know a Mom who feels like this about a daughters horrible experience AND a Mom who raised her daughter to pick herself up and move on. You both ROCK!

Insane Mama said...

It's crazy! That is just how it is out here, it sucks. Hollywood sucks I hate it. Yea, he probably WAS a pervert. And an obvious ASS

Meg said...

First of all...

Oh. My. God.

Second, WTH?

Third, hug your daughter for me and tell her there is no place like "home"! Us Texas women can take anything those insane Hollywood types can dish out and end up smelling like a rose in the end. What goes around comes around...He WILL get his...

My heart goes out to you Snoot, you are such a GREAT mother and you protect your children just like a mother should, your daughter is lucky to have a mom like you! It sounds like you are also lucky to have such a wonderful, charming, talented and resliant daughter.

I HATE it when someone "jacks" with my kids! AAAAAAAAAAAAARh!

God has BIG special plans for her...

Smooches!
Meg

Snooty Primadona said...

Thanks Megs. I'm still a bit weepy over here, but it's not the first time. Nor will it be the last, lol. She just wanted it so badly and it was actually a job where she could use her PR & advertising degree. She has accepted that it was not meant to be. I'm still finding it a bit of a hurdle. Like her, I will get over it. However, I will NOT forget. I'm sure those guys are shaking in their Armani suits as we speak. Yeah. Right.

noble pig said...

What a shithead, seriously. Those people are so full of themselves.

So I went to the website but still can't tell who it is...WHO IS IT?

Treasia said...

What an asshole he is!! To tell her he would be giving her training and then to take the cowards way out and fire her like that. He will get his in the end. Karma is a bitch in life.

Snooty Primadona said...

Ryan Kavenaugh. You can google him.

asthmagirl said...

Yeah, it's hard to step back and not try to wrestle control of their lives from them. I think you deserve an award for restraint. But if I know you, you raised her with guts and fortitude. It won't take her long to decide what to do next and get on with her life!

Snooty Primadona said...

Well, she has 3 interviews lined up today, so that's a start. She just wanted this so badly. She has 2 friends who work in this end of the industry who were going o school her on what to do this week. Guess that won't be happening. I am still pissed and I really thought I'd be over it by now, lol.

I have a feeling I need to move on now...

imbeingheldhostage said...

ONE DAY- what the...? WHO works like this-- oh wait, you told me didn't you ;-)

I am so sorry for SD and I boy do I know what a mom feels when the baby is hurting, so I hurt for you as well. And I do believe you're right on her dodging the missile-- can you imagine the pain she would've gone through if she'd been there longer?

Mz. Nesbit said...

aw, that's awful. :o(

Mental P Mama said...

What an unprofessional oaf. She will get the right gig. Soon, I hope;)

Mr. Ryan Kavenaugh,

You miserable little cum-sucking rat bastard. You don't even have the balls to fire someone in person. How dare you think people are disposable and can be discarded like your styrofoam latte cup. I hope the next time you get your botox injection, you get punked by Kat Von D who tattoos a sphincter on your forehead so the world can see you for the asshole you are. There is such a thing as a person who is a complete waste of skin. That would be you.

Wow. As much as it sucks — and it DOES! — I think Snooty Daughter really dodged a bullet there, because holy crap what a douchebag. Can you imagine working for someone like that? Hope she lands somewhere that appreciates her, and years from now she can meet aforementioned douchebag at an industry event where she is a executive and he is a busboy. And spill something on him.

I adore your blog and think you are an amazing lady!
Now, that said, I had a similar experience after my 14 year, stay-at-home marriage ended. I had to re-enter the work force and it was terrifying. I managed to get hired by my kids doctor with his full understanding that I had NO experience. That was fine, he would train me in the back & front office. 4 weeks later he let me go because "I had no experience" What the hell???
I feel for your girl and as a mother of three completely get your outrage.

Ah-ha, Karma!!
What a Cowardly Ass!! I know what you mean by wanting to make him hurt as much, if not more. I believe he will in the end.
SD sounds amazing and strong. I am sure you are proud and you have done well. Good luck to her and whatever new adventure she may take.

B. Roan said...

When our babies are treated badly, it's only natural for our Mother Bear Claws to come out. I feel sure your daughter has dodged the bullet. I can't imagine working for such a jerk. I don't even know your daughter and he's made me angry! I hope she finds a new, much better, job soon. BJ

sista #2 said...

Just found your blog and LOVE IT! I wish you could hear the ring in my voice as I say that. I have a brother in *The Industry* and it is a crazy, insane place full of people whose egos need to be fed on a minute by minute basis. If she really wants to be there I hope she finds decent people to work with, if not maybe she should be an entertainment lawyer and kick some ass on jerks who do good people wrong!
