I am the executive assistant to the CEO of a pretty big fashion brand. And I do what every she asks. My job has many aspects and is always opened to more. It get tiring some time. But there are perks to my job.
I get free clothes a lot. Mainly for when I go to big event with my Boss. It wouldn’t look very good if I was wearing another designer.
But my boss also give me any defects. Clothing that came out wrong or is imperfect or not up to my bosses standards.
Now this for some reason make people think I stuck up I’m swaer I’m not I really appreciate that my boss does this as there was a time when I had very little and couldn’t afford to buy food no matter clothing cheap or expensive.
One day my boss mention that one of the wedding dress she had was a defect the train shorter then it was supposed to be. She asked if I knew anyone who could use one.
Which I didn’t
My best friend of five years had gotten engaged a few months before. My boss gave it to me and I gave it to my friend.
This friend has been there for me since I was 20 she took me in and help me find my path out of very dark situation. I love her more then anything in the world.
Here’s were thing get messy.
My friend made a post thanking me and my boss
And my family saw it and it started a stream of calls and messages from my family.
( I do not have a good relationship with my family. My parent kicked me out when I was 16 after I came out to them. My sister wasn’t much better then my parents. We actually never got along even before I was kicked out. She a very entitled person who was very selfish. I struggle for a long time after that. I live with my aunt until I was 18 which wasn’t easy as we had little money. I ended up going to design school getting an internship, and then a job at my current company It wasn’t until my family found out that. I was making good money and working for a multimillion dollar company did they suddenly want back in my life. Which I allowed to avoid drama.)
My mom and sister called demand to know why I gave the dress to my friend and not my sister
Apparently she was getting married
I didn’t even know she was engaged
They berated me yelling how family should come first
(These are the same people who kicked me out at 16)
They even suggest I try to take it back from my friend as family should come first.
When I told them point blank that was never going to happen.
They started bashed me to extended family
who also started messaging me insulted me
My sister even tried to call my boss to complain which is just nuts right.
Last night I got a call from my mother. At this point I haven’t spoken to my family since the previous incident.
This is the conversation we had
Mom: Hello Dax
Me: Mom what is it now (a little rude I know but it has gotten the point I can not even pretend to be nice with them)
Mom: Your sister is still upset about the dress
Me: Well she needs to get over it. I gave the dress to Meghan. It belongs Meghan plain and simple
Mom: I know
Mom: She accept she not getting the dress
Me: ok good
Mom: Me and your sister came up with a way to make it up to her
Mom: Since you didn’t give her the other dress we thought you could get her another one.
Me: I can’t do that
Mom: why not you got one for that friend of yours
Me: I didn’t get one for her. My boss gave me a defect dress and told me I could give it to someone I know who needed it.
Mom: Your sister doesn’t want a defect she need a perfect dress
Me: are you kidding me
Mom: No she says she wants the one your post on your Instagram the other day
Me: That dress cost $12 000
Mom: that perfect
Me: seriously you expect me to give you guys a $12 000 dress. Are you high
Mom: You do not speak to your mother that way.
Me: Your ridiculous
Mom: She is your sister do you have no respect for family.
Me: Respect seriously
Me: You kicked me out when I was 16
Mom: Dax that was a long time ago and we are talking about your sister not me
Me: Yeah my sister the one who calls me her faggot brother when I’m not around
Me: I am not getting her a dress from work and that final
Mom: Fine but the least you can do is help buy her one
Me: Are you kidding me
At this point I hang up. She call back a few time. But I just Ignore them.
I really consider cutting them off again. This is getting ridiculous.
