this would make me crazy. there must be a way to fix this.
lol I LOVE REFUNDZ!!!!
oh hai there. glad you are conne-ing settling into your new job.
I'd like to think after 1.5 years on the job, countless lunch orders for my managers, printing, stapling, setting up meetings, staying late till my superiors leave, and whatever hell there is, I've done my fair share to NOT deserve this expectation to stay till Friday after work. Not saying I've paid all my dues yet, but damn, this is uncalled for.
In the end, though, it all works out because I can stay at home with my parents over the week and weekend (client site is closer to my parents' place than our HQ) and all my best buddies are in Boston and NYC, so I'm going to be hitting up NYC again this weekend (free happy hour at a bar that my friend's GF won, apparently, so kinda excited to check that out). Plus, the company pays me when I don't stay at hotels, which is a very nice benefit. I'll be saving soooo much money by doing this. Maybe this will mitigate my massive stock losses with Apple
In fact, I wouldn't mind just living with my parents for a month or so and not having to fly back. The only issue with that is the VP at my Dallas office would flip a shit about why I'm never coming back; he'd probably talk to my project manager and I want to avoid that at all costs, so I'll be flying back every other week.
The entire month of December was nice, not having to travel and all. It was really refreshing to feel like you've settled down in one place. Last week marks my 1 year anniversary of flying every week for work and I'm surprisingly not burnt out to the core, but I am starting to tire of it. Fancy hotels, steak dinners, miles, all that shit don't matter. I just want to stay in one place and sleep in my own bed.
Anyway, I'm setting in motion the wheels to move on to a different job. We'll see what prospects await me in the Big Apple .
I am being rehired...this surely isn't pissing me off, but I thought I would post it here since I have been posting about my situation in this thread. I broke down into tears when I was told they would take me back--my job has become such a part of who I am as a person, and I really felt that part of myself died when I heard I was terminated. I never really felt that sort of emptiness before--it was worse than breaking up with a girlfriend.
^^ Glad to hear it!
Wonderful, really good news! Congrats!
The number of mediocre indie bands is staggering. So many are unoffensive, but that still equates to being useless. If there were a way to consolidate the middling talents of 500 mediocre bands in order to make one or two great bands that could actually put together a string of albums that can be listened to in their entirety, it would really be a good thing. I'm so sick of digging through all these repetitive jangle pop/neo-psychedelic/ songs that are all nearly carbon copies of each other.
DUDE!!! this is amazing news!!! so happy to hear that you were able to make that happen.
Attended a tax seminar about how the new taxes will affect me. It's a good thing I am a pacifist or I would have fucking murdered everybody in the room.
I have to pay 50 dollars to the bank just to get the paperwork to give to my accountant (whom I will then also pay)
Exploit the loopholes!!!
Congrats man, we should have a meat up before you leave.
Congrats man. Really happy for you that at least something's working out.
I recently found out that a recent ex is going to have to have open heart surgery. (Not her first, unfortunately.) Our relationship ended with a lot of anger, but I obviously still care a lot about her and her well being.
