Those who don't wanna do the reading, the short of it is that I don't want her to watch my horses when I go away in about a month, despite the fact that she had previously watched them before.
But of course ontop of the drama going on about her being upset (despite my best efforts to be polite and pleasant with her) one of her previous clients asked me to show a horse for her that my coworker had been showing previously. I am always looking for an oppourtunity to get out and show, get myself and peoples horses out there etc. but given the situation I'm in I told her I couldn't decide right then :\
She's gotten wind of it and has reached a whole new level of upset with me. Enough that she tried to get me in trouble with my boss, saying I used her horse in one of my lessons without her permission. Thank the good lord for email, I just printed out the correspondance between us clearly showing me asking to use the horse at x time on x day, and her agreeing. She came back saying that she must have gotten the dates confused and 'apologized' to me. This just so happened to be infront of our slightly irked boss. Like I've admitted in the other thread, my boss does have a bit of a favoritism towards her because she sells horses. Whereas I'm really not that aggressive about selling my kids the first lesson horse they think is pretty.
I would LOVE to get out and show this mare (despite my usual avoidance of them. Too marey xD) as she's really flashy and a few ribbons to add to my record always helps in bringing more clients to my barn and in my lessons. But I don't know if it is going to be worth it if it's going to cause this much trouble in the barn for me. Any opinions on what I should do? I'm so not a 'dealing with people' person. I talk to horses, they're much less...human -.-
