Are you kidding me?

Three weeks ago yesterday, the owner of the company told me he wanted to sit down with me and discuss making my position permanent/full time with benefits.   Three weeks ago tomorrow, I let the boss know that I would be willing to relocate, depending on salary, benefits and job duties.   He asked me to give him a week to hammer out the details of the duties and he would get back to me.

After a week, I started trying to meet with him and he was never available, or too busy.  Same thing I guess.  Now, here I am on the verge of 3 weeks after that initial discussion thinking I’ve had it.  I don’t know that I want to work for a company (permanently) that is so disorganized and unprofessional.

Meanwhile, BOC and Papa Grumpy have been dumping more and more job duties on my plate.  I don’t think I’ve done what I was originally hired, as a contractor, to do in about 2 weeks.  They are seriously getting their money’s worth right now.  And I’m seriously heading into bankruptcy if this keeps up at this pace.

I’ve been living on my credit cards.  I’ve been putting my gas and my groceries on my credit cards because I have not had the money in the bank to do it.   It’s making me sick to my stomach.  Seriously.

On another note.  I got a phone call this morning, from a member of GA.  She happens to be lesbian.  No biggie, right?  Well I think she did think it was a biggie because she felt that I have not befriended her BECAUSE she is lesbian.  Are you fucking kidding me?   She said she felt that since I go to the church I go too, my opinions matched that of the leadership of the church when it comes to gays and lesbians.

I laughed at her.  I’m sure that was not the response she was looking for, but I laughed at her and asked her if she was serious.   She said that she was very serious.   I laughed again and informed her that my BFF, Todd, who passed away in 2005 was the gayest man I had ever met and that is why I refer to us as Will and Grace.   I figured if I said “Everyone in Vegas called us Will and Grace, for obvious reasons”  people would get it.   Obviously not this person.   She has been holding a resentment against me for 2.5 months.

I wonder if she ever thought for a second that I wasn’t befriending her because I just don’t like her?  Or that maybe I had too much on my plate at the time she was reaching out to me?  Or that maybe I just don’t like her?  Oh, I said that already.  Sorry.

I’ve sent my resume to a few people up north and will see what happens.  I’m remaining open minded.  I told them both that I won’t go anywhere unless I find a job that will pay me what I need to make and what I deserve.   My resume rocks and I have a lot of experience to offset that pesky education requirement on a lot of jobs. 

However, I still have a goal of once I get settled, to look into getting a degree in something.  Most likely business admin or something similar, since that is what I do.

I’m going to go veg on the couch and do a little pick up of the apartment.  I also need to balance my checkbook and see if I have money for bills.

Until next time….

    wow, what a freak! I can’t believe she actually tried to call you on that which obviously wasn’t true. Someone seems a bit high on the lesbian horse!

  • Melissa says:

    Yeah…I don’t dislike certain people because of their race, religion, orientation, or whatever. It’s just because they’re assh*les!

    High on her lesbian horse indeed! LOL!

    She’s obviously insecure about her own lifestyle.
