I’ve been AWOL

In more recent times I have been AWOL from my little blog, life working for Enterprise (time to name and shame) has been so unbelievably depressing and stressful that I haven’t even had the energy or inclination to bitch. A sad state of affairs indeed. I have lost touch with the day to day musings of charming folks such as Brennig, GOM, GOF and Flamingo Dancer. I have not ripped anyone a new one since the lovely Samantha Brick crossed my path. But this may all be about to change because….

I have handed in my notice.

I have a new job. No longer will I be Corporate Wankery’s Bitch, the person who is desperately trying to keep up with the vast array of bullshit, nonsense and time wasting crap that is flung my way, now I am leaving and I no longer give a fuck. I don’t even bother reading half the shite that lands in the inbox and if Ms Bigshot, who I think may be my boss (chain of command got a little bit hazy since my previous boss left), thinks that I am going to bother my arse to fill in all her tracker sheets; locate,deliver an Enterprise induction to and send all the training records of every agency staff member I have to training services and bother my arse to to arrange audit management system training for all my site supervisors, she can get fucked. Notice is in, I leave here on the 14th and until that date I shall be doing a) stuff that needs doing so I don’t land my successor in too much shit and b) stuff that looks interesting like sitting in site cabins drinking tea and gossiping, the way I used to before the Corporate Wankery descended. I have been transformed from the grumpiest person at work to a cheerful soul who will soon be earning a salary it’s actually possible to live on without having to go foraging for food in bins by halfway through the month.

This, ladies and gents, is what freedom feels like. And it is good.

  1. Excellent news and well done you!

  2. Good for you. For leaving, and for having a place to go to.

    And here I thought all this time you were just soooo excited by the Olympics that you were too busy for us, lol.

  3. And they just hate it when you walk around all happy. When I left a place out in California, I told new work that I was giving them two week notice at old work before starting. Then I never told old work, just walked around with this incredibly giddy feeling of “What are they going to do, fire me?”. The happiness lasted almost a full week, when the boss picked up on the attitude change. It made him nervous. LOL

    We went into his office for a “talk” and near the end, I looked him square in the eye and said I was leaving on X date, he could either fire me then and there and pay me for the week, or I could just finish out my time and go. He was so stunned, he quietly said to go back to work. That place was one of the most FUBAR’ed places I’ve ever worked. Best of luck going forward!

    • They really do hate it when you look happy. My irritating levels of cheerfulness are getting right on their wick. I love that your cheerful attitude change made your boss suspicious, that is is magnificent work!

  4. This makes me happy. I like living vicariously through other people quitting their shitty jobs, it’s uplifting!

  5. Fuck me! I mean… really well done. Principles. Making a stand. All that. But fuck me!
