Betrayed and Grape Dance

I'm going to start this post of with a bit of a ramble, so if you don't wanna read it. Just scroll down to the bottom, as I do have some nail art I want to show you.

Our clinic hours have changed since the first of Jan, now due to this our working hours had to change as well, since we have to work a certain amount of hours. Now I have a a good relationship with our HOD and she tells me things that she wouldn't normally tell the other staff. I'm also her most reliable receptionist, I stand in for any one and any time. If somebody calls in sick and she needs someone, she calls me. And I'm always available. So in November I worked about 24 hours overtime, yip, 24 hours. And then they still short paid me on it. When I queried it and when she got back to me, it was because I owed the company hours and they deducted those hours from my approved overtime hours. So naturally I was pissed off, I said the her if that is going to be the case I'm not going to work overtime again. Why would I work overtime and there's no guarantee that I would get paid for it? I mean I've been a kippie for her, but this is really pushing it.

My dad brought me some paperwork to complete last year, to apply for positions that was available by him for admin work. I completed it, not thinking much and not hoping for any more than that. So on Wednesday I got a call, I need to go for fingerprints, obviously to check for a criminal background. When I got to work my HOD called me to her office and asked me why didn't I tell her about me applying for another job. And if I got it, would I take it. Skipping that conversation, I assumed they called for a reference. Thursday morning my dad calls me and says to me, that when they called for the reference, she was rude to them and she said she doesn't have time for it. So I asked one of the doctors as I needed that ASAP.

I feel betrayed by this, some of my colleagues have said this is a slap in the face, considering all I have done for her and for her to do that to me... What has she not done to some of the other receptionists that have left? I have asked my dad to find out if she ever did do that reference, because if she hasn't done it... I am going to report her, as this is my future she's jeopardising. Besides all this she still has the nerve to ask me to stay till next year as she has earmarked me for another position. And when I asked what it may be, she told me it would be hers. Now I do not want hers as I don't want the shit she has to put up with.

Okay enough rambling. Here's the art. I started with two coats of Tip Top Grape Dance on my pinky, middle and thumb. Grape Dance is a purple jelly or at least it seems jellyish to me. On my ring and index fingers I did one careful coat of Sinful Colors Snow me White. Used some striping tape and one of my new dotting tools, went to town on my index fingers with some dots and lines on my ring fingers.
When that was dry I added some pretty flower decals from BPS.
So what do you guys think?
