I just watched the first two episodes of Desperate Housewives. It's good...intriguing. Why did Mary Alice kill herself? Why did her husband go through all that trouble to dig up a box from under the pool, only to dump it in the river? Is Mike a hitman or an undercover cop? Why is Bree such a control freak? Questions, questions, questions...I think I'll watch it again next week!

Today's not been a good day. Jobsworth wanted a word just before I left the office last night, and gave me what he called a 'wake up call': shape up or...So my sole motivation for going in to work this morning, was to report him for harassment. That done, I called in sick and left. I'm not going in tomorrow, either. I can't because I've got the gasman coming round to check the geyser -- it's something the gas company insist on every year. I may go back in again on Thursday. I probably will. But at the moment, just thinking about it makes my stomach turn.

I almost forgot: today is/was Manasse's first birthday, too! Poor love, I didn't do anything to mark the occasion...

Happy Birthday Manasse!

I have nothing left to say about Jobsworth. I just hope someone listens to your harassment report.

It was good to go in, and talk to the harassment counselor -- and to be taken entirely seriously for a change! She actually turned around and said "[Jobsworth's real name]...didn't we have to deal with this sort of thing with him before?"

She expect I'll soon be hearing from HR, an invitation to a meeting with him, an HR representative, and myself...and has said she will gladly come with me to...I don't know...back me up with some scowling? Anyway, she said that with the company doctor and the therapist's evidence, I had a good case.

Still don't know whether I've done the right thing, though -- I don't want to be labelled a troublemaker...

I think it's a bit late for that now. Just go for it, take the puny human down!

Go away Illyria...

I wish I could channel her like that...I'm sure one look from her cold blue eyes could make him run for cover!

And doing it admirably. I'm sure you'll be rewarded for it in paradise.

Deperate Housewifes is really good. I'm afraid I missed the first few episodes so I'm not entirely sure what's going on. I do know that it's really good though.

Today's not been a good day. Jobsworth wanted a word just before I left the office last night...

He just pays no attention to anything else that's going on does he? Bullies like him just don't know how to give up. Stupid, because it doesn't help anyone. Glad you reported him.

I'll say. He said that, since he had 'forgotten' about the meeting with the doctor last week, he was going to come with me to my next appointment with the therapist; he'd call her and let her know to expect him there as well. I told him he couldn't be there unless I agreed it. He waved it away and said, "I'll arrange it with her."

I really have no idea what planet he's on.

Good luck with HR. Jobsworth needs his comeuppance. And to be moved far away from you.

Or for me to be moved far away from him, for as long as I'm still with the company.

I've had a tip-off that someone I used to work with 8 years ago is starting up a new team -- it would mean switching to a totally different business segment, but if it'll get me away from Jobsworth, and make it unlikely I'll ever have to deal with him ever again...Unfortunately, it'll take another month or two before he's ready to start interviewing. :-(

Well, good for you. About time he got a shake-up from HR. I'm keeping everything crossed that this time it will sort out to the good.

Try and relax tomorrow, hon. And just see how you feel on Thurday.

((hugs))

And happy Birthday, Manasse!

Manasse thanks you kindly. He's not sure whether he'll forgive me my inattention yet, but I'm going to do my best to try and make it up to him today -- I've got lots of tummy rubs in store for him!
