Telling the truth about SME life today

Election apathy

I do briefly reflect on whether the result might have been totally different with a different Tory leader.

This country is, indeed, in need of change but everything in me screams against the idea of celebrating Cameron in power. That said, I cannot see me celebrating any of Labour’s policies, should they manage to negotiate their way into another term. And Mr Clegg’s brief, first-debate sparkle now has all the excitement of a damp firework.  

Meanwhile, back at my desk. Am thankful it is Friday after a horrendous week. Worked so hard all through bank holiday weekend, setting everything up for coming month and issuing clear instructions to all concerned – but I find that virtually no-one has bothered to follow them. Since, as a boss, I need to remain politically corrrect, there is no real outlet for my anger, especially because it’s my own good name (not to mention my house and finances) on the line. When there is no outlet for anger, depression inevitably follows. I end up in the car, in floods of tears, more than once. Wonder for the 500th time if I am really strong enough to run a business anymore
