So very few notable days have fallen since I have started posting here. Most are more notorious than notable. Happy ones like the birth of nieces and nephews and of course getting married are the only good ones I can think of.

Not sure where to file this day.

I've been terminated. Near to a decade of service was ended due to my insubordination towards a micromanaging control freak two tiers above me on the chain of command. Of course I have reasons, not excuses for my lack of cooperation with certain directives. And my parting was very civil. No tears, a ton of smiles, and I didn't tell her to eat a dick. I may or may not be filing a grievance. But that is tomorrow.

Tonight is time for beers!

Ummm...
1. congratulations on your freedom (sucky timing as it might be in the job market). Getting away from crazies and insanities is always a good thing in my book.

2. WTF?! I thought they needed to give 2 weeks notice at least for this kind of shyte. ('course I should be one to talk...gave 'em less than a day to find out that I wasn't coming back.)

3. Wishing you luck and energy in finding a job.

I have been out of work since the end of October, and there is not much out that requires my skills. I suspect I better start learning the phrase, "Do you want fries with that". Of course that may not be so easy to get, either.

Thanks 'Neko

I can do pretty much anything. No mind digging ditches, cutting weeds, or sweeping streets.

Wait, machines do all that. Shit...

I have all manner of skills, some less marketable than others, and a few very marketable but not worth the risk. Apparently I am recommended for rehire to with the tribe, but only after a year and only if I am crazy enough to consider another job with them. I am way too pleasant and controlled to have told the bosses boss to eat a dick.

Yeah, I was "terminated" in the absence of my actual supervisor.

Beer run!

Also he was terminated for something he was never written up for before, without notice or warning, and basically because his boss's boss was in snit because her weekend was interrupted and not just his due to an emergency. She has disliked him for years, she just finally got her chance, using the smallest sliver of a made up excuse ( claims she told him not to do something and he did it, but I was there for their phone conversations and she never told him not to do that) to get rid of the one person who will stand up to her when she's wrong....( she isn't a fan of being wrong)

Buy Yay now he can stay home for a few days with me on summer break :)

Ouch and I was upset cause I'm feeling sick. Sounds like NVG definitely wins the shitty day award. What is it with crappy people in leadership positions? How do they even get there in the first place is what I want to know?

My manager is supposed to be trying to clear off some of my workload so we can prepare for a big transition for next year. Currently that process is going in reverse. She wants to get rid of another person and give me like a 3rd of their work. Yesterday I got another pile of work dumped on me. This isn't even a hard concept to figure out. More work does not equal less work.

We were supposed to have a meeting today and I called her (since I'm not going into work all sick) and she didn't answer and hasn't returned my call even with a voice message. 15 minutes and waiting. Argh

I am sorry for your situation.It seems that many "managerial types" at different levels in the food chain are taking advantage of the economy to settle personal (as opposed to personnel) issues.
I went from 60 +hours a week to 16-24+patial unemployment in January.OTOH;I have a couple of very solid opportnities( one of which I interview for tomorrow!).

I am a consulting teacher ( I train and teach other teachers to deal with behavior challenges etc) but I'm only doing that for one more year then I want back in the classroom ( sick of teaching adults as it's no where near as satisfying as teaching the kids)

NV is the manager of a site that takes in kids with drug and alcohol issues and have been removed from their homes by the court and helps in their rehab.

That happened recently where I worked - micromanagers taking advantage of the recession in order to cut the costs from one end cos they were unable to cut them from the other. Luckily I was NOT one of those who got let go, but I lost some good friends and co-workers in that mess.

I was laid off in the past, at a job when my wife was 8 months pregnant. The only up-side was that I hated the job so much that every day on the drive in I sought desperately for some master plan that did not necessitate my going to work. When I was laid off I should have been worried, but instead I was so relieved that I didn't have to go there anymore. The panic came a few days later.
;p

Focus on the bad shit that you no longer have to go back to. That's the only way to not totally fall apart in a situation like this.

And with your open minded attitude towards employment, I'm sure you'll find something soon.

I agree, and also, jerks who want to micro-manage and control and stifle any sign of iniative are usually the ones who WANT to be in control or other people, just so they can do all that to them with impunity. I hate them too, always have,can't believe they can go day to day living inside their own heads. Not that I'm bitter or anything.

Y'know, IIRC, that sounds like a termination without cause, and (if NVG chose to play the "bastard" card) could get the whole program into a hella lot of hot water -- at least for the management level types.

(File a grievance....put the micormanaging ninny in some boiling hot water for the b.s.)[Oops! Did I say that out loud? ]

Hope you guys put in for the U/I soon.

Traveler: Me too...I just went for a test for a job, and they said that the interviews might start later this month and start date is in September. Ta ma de. Sadly, though, when I tried to apply for one of those types of jobs late last year, I got a rejection letter. Guess I'm too edjumakayted or som'thin'.

Don't feel bad...it is the Dilbert Principle at work-"Managers are prmoted to their own level of Incompetence".
As an aside;I have een run off of jobsites for the following:
1)Having the account manager call me on the company cell phone,and having someone from the client overhear me answere his query regarding directions to a gun shop.
2)Having a decent working relationship with the cleaning and construction contractors(they were Salvadoran neighbors of mine),and the person listening could not understand the Spanglish we were conversing in...this was interesting because the same complainant ALSO(see below)
3)Disapproved of my belief that a country that does NOT control its own borders eventually loses its sovereingty-usually after it goes broke,both frm lost jobs to funding a support system.Person ALSO disliked hearing me chuckle at a joke my Mexican second cousins emailed me( and passing it on to my neighbors/fellow contractors).What can I say?I am hard to categorize(they could not decide if I was intolerant or EXCESSIVELY tolerant-so much for diversity of thought!).
Above account level,area/district managers are terrified of ANY client complaint-wheter or not the complaint has validity.Combine that with a sketchy economy and all manner of backstabbery flows freely.

Up early as per usual. Funny, I was rarely this excited to be up at this hour when I was working. Kinda F'ed u really.

Don't feel bad Navy. I pushed for Batman until we were watching Dog The Bounty Hunter the other night. An older Mexican gentleman had a son named Zorro.

I tried but was shot down of course.

Lol, that is awful. Then again my husband and I have been joking that if we ever have a son we could name him Edward Henry Hyde. Somehow I think less people would pick up on the Edward Hyde then Alex Drudee, but both would have a literature teacher chuckling.
