Don't mind me, I'm just doing a tremendous amount of grumbling behind the scenes in posts that I write and know will never be published. I'm not dumb enough or angry enough to open that can of worms.
My life is, apparently, not my own to choose what to do with as I see fit. And my happiness is not even secondary or thirdary. Maybe its top five but that's debatable.
I wish somebody had informed me of this before I signed the contract.
