The more I look at it, since it was part time only, I had some reservations from the get go despite all the skills for it. My error was ignoring these misgivings and plodding along with the attitude of I am a shoe in . So hence all the impatience and negative feelings. Anymore, if not really "feeling it" then just move on to something that does. We can never feel sense of entitlement , that is just conceit.

Difficult employee , nah , just a tad impatient and anxious in the interview process. No more of that. Not good for anybody involved.

With all that happened , would I do it again , a resounding No.

OP - are you still working for those two crazy folks who require employees to eat lunch together?

I got out of there. They actually paid me for an extra week and said since the contract was about up , that it was a way of saying thank you. Even got a call from the CEO when he came back from Europe, appreciating my contributions etc.

As for the rest of crew there, god bless them all. They can only think for themselves now and maybe stop pretending that all is ok. They probably need somebody to gently council the boss and his wife as to obvious issues that others are staying too quiet about. That role most definitely falls with the office manager, but she is just a yes woman to the boss. Bad thing and others obviously suffer for it. If I was there long enough , I would have eventually made some inroads in that respect. I was only a contractor and only ever that.

Working in the state of California is never boring and always a very interesting experience.
