How d'you like them apples?

I guess Jobsworth was feeling better or has had some good results following his bloodtests, because he was back to his old insensitive, tyrannical self today.

He took me to task saying I haven't been doing a good enough job since I've started back on half days. He expects me to cram in a full day's work in the 4 hours I put in (that's 4 hours in the office, plus 4 hours travelling there and back). When I countered that I'm doing the best I can given the fact that I can't use my arm very well and am in quite a bit of pain when I do, and that I was disregarding doctor's orders by coming in at all, he told me he didn't want to hear any of my excuses. His message was clear: I either pick up or ship out.

Fine. As from tomorrow, I won't come in at all.


One of my co-workers told me Heath Ledger has died. The news has left me quite stunned. I wasn't a big fan, but I've seen a few of his films and liked him in them, so yeah...It's very sad.


Moving on, though: it's bogwitch's birthday! Happy birthday, darling! I know we haven't spoken much lately, but you're always in my thoughts, and I hope that you at least are having a wonderful day today.

I am so sorry he is so miserable and plain rotten.
I hope by you being off, you will not put job in jeopardy.

Re: How d'you like them apples
To be perfectly honest, right now I'm so hacked off I don't care if I do. But realistically, I don't think he'll find it all that easy to get rid of me -- I'm not a temp who can be hired or fired at will.

So...now that you're here, how does LJ suit you? Are you still finding it a bit confusing to find your way around, or...?

Thank you! I'm always about even if I can't be bothered sometimes to squee about shoes. :D

Haha! That's alright, I can squee for the universe; just me, by myself -- don't need no one else ;-D

Just as well then.

*hugs* I'm sorry he's being such a bastard right now. *more hugs*

The man's a pain; but the hugs are gratefully received. Thanks!

Huh! Stupid man with zero empathy.
Jan. 23rd, 2008 10:35 pm (UTC)
You said it.

So the pod hatched and Jobsworth returned. What a pity.

I use this icon a lot for this guy. :)

You do -- but then, it's so apt!
