Thrown under the bus.

So…that’s what it feels like. The painful feeling of 10 ton bearing wheels running over your head, dislocating each skullbone bit by bit. Alright, alright, maybe a bit too graphic and extreme an illustration but being thrown under the bus on the job is not exactly the most fun thing. Especially when the thrower is someone you didn’t expect to do it to you.

For those of you who don’t quite get it…like I didn’t until several months ago….”being thrown under the bus”  loosely refers to being abandoned in the heat of the battle by your colleagues and left to absorb the brunt of the fiery toungue lashing darts of the boss…while standing in the dung of failure of some sort.

For me it was a real eyeopener…not so much in the sense of “now you know who your friends are” but more in the sense of “now I know (a bit better) who I am”…Yes, I was able to get up and brush it off [eventually]. Not that I didn’t go through the grieving phases….Denial…anger…coming to terms…looking forward ( I may have left out/rephrased a phase or 2 but whatever..I’m no Freud)…but having had my 3 hours to mull over and eventually dissmiss my surely ill-fated thoughts of revenge….I finally sat down to seal my healing by writing this blog.

So for those of you who feel or have felt random abandonment by friends or colleagues when under fire….take courage in that you’re still alive and so long as the round world turns, to each will be returned their own medicine…and the great thing is that you don’t have to have anything to do with it.




  1. Wow!!! Graphic.

    Is not how many times you fall but how many times you get up that matters. Good for you, for standing up and going forward.

    Revenge is not worth the time… Protect yourself, but think and go forward. All experiences are lessons.



  2. Under the bus is not a good place to be….I should know. It’s happened so many tiimes, I’ve lost count. I am a nurse….and a darned good one, but this profession has blindsided me to the point that I can barely lift my arms over my head. I am still in the greiving process and haven’t moved forward yet, although I am continuing to process my options. At first I paniiked. Then I was/am depressed. Revenge does cross a person’s mind…but I totally agree with you. It’s not my job to punish anyone…it’ll come around to bite you in the butt.

    Thanks for listtening.

  3. God has a way of making all things right. When you step out and do you job the way he would have you do it, He is aware of the injustice and HE will make it right. God is not slack concerning his promises and He always protects HIS children

  4. While matching the kundlis or birth charts date like the date of birth,
    location, and sex of the individual is needed and the result are based on their
    stars and position of planets. The Moon asks us to be courageous as her path is dimly
    lit. By way of example, we could view in order to find Tubbs Snowshoes Reviews to ensure we
