Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

In it, I outline a few bad experiences with abusive supervisors. I am confident abusive people started down a road and passed a lot of stop signs getting there.
Coming back from vacation, I put my game face on, and with it, a blue bow tie with white polka dots as outlined in in the above-mentioned blog post.
Attending the morning meeting with the suit types, I received nothing but compliments.
Not one to hide in an office, I completed rounds and greeted those in our care. Only one person out of literal hundreds made fun.
I may sport it again.
It was a cool challenge, and the bow tie may become part of my wardrobe off and on.
When I got to the office, I found a box of business cards on my desk, there was a brand new swivel chair and the mini fridge was stocked with energy drinks, snacks and chocolate bars. I gained weight and pimpled out just looking at it.
I was touched this week by the care and concern my supervisor put in to making everything so cool when I returned.
The atmosphere was different this week overall. Did it have it’s problems? Absolutely. My line of work can get stressful quickly, but it was easy to brush off.
Yesterday, I had little supervision and made a pointed effort to be effective. Recently, I had made a joke that I goof off when my boss is not around and resolved to make my statement inaccurate and make as many meaningful contacts as possible.
In this pursuit, I was doing my self assigned rounds when I approached a cell door where noise emanated. A man was praying his heart out asking for peace in the prison.
Could it be that he had been praying and God heard him?
