The end of an era

Well, it's done. I signed my job away at 4:32 this afternoon. It feels really weird.

Of course, it was so like Jobsworth to try and go back on our agreement, until I pointed out the paragraph that read that I would no longer be obliged to come into work from the moment I put my signature to the document, so as to facilitate me in the search for employment elsewhere. Then he tried to appeal to my better nature by reminding me of how short-staffed we were...but how is this any of my business now? Twat.

I'm so glad I won't ever have to see or speak to him again.

What and idiot. He wouldn't know to buy a clue even if it was on discount prices.

Good luck with the search!

Thank you. It's been a stressful couple of weeks, but I'm sure I made the right decision.

Gotta say that the indignant part of me that is royally brassed off over how my friend has been undervalued and treated is giggling madly. They will learn what they pushed away to their detriment and they deserve every bit of "discomfort" they get.

YAY YOU!!!!!!! It can only get better now. Closure can be so rewarding in itself. Don't be scared, you'll be fine.

I am so glad you don't have to deal with that ass any longer.

Upwards and Onwards, I say.

I still can't quite believe it. Life is going to be so much more enjoyable without his constant asshattery around me.

Yay you!

I have to wonder why Jobsworth agreed to your severance if you are so valuable that he needs you to stay on. Or maybe he was just too stupid to realise it until he saw you walking out the door. His asshatery knows no bounds.

(and yeah, asshattery is a word, I just made it up)

Now's your chance to get a job without a 2hr commute too! :)

It's hard to credit, isn't it? But that's </b>exactly</b> what was going on in his head. And of course 'asshattery' is a word. I've just used it, haven't I? ;-)

Now's your chance to get a job without a 2hr commute too!

I hope so! So far, I've only been offered interviews (2) at companies that operate in the Amsterdam area again...but it's early days yet. I'll keep on looking for something closer to home for now.

That's for definite. Already I feel so much better, and it's only been a few hours ;-)

I do feel like exciting times are ahead, and something much mmuch better is just around the corner.
