^Tell me about it. Still trying to figure life out and the best course. Biggest thing to learn is not be afraid of the years...or so I try to tell myself.
So we're being penalized for capping some overtime with this Network Nuisance that's been going on long enough for me to have crafted a kooky alliterative narrative. *shakes head* You try to be a good supportive worker bee, staying late, and helping everyone out and BAM! You get swatted for it. But if you didn't stay and just left, first off jerk move, but then if something happens from you not staying, they'll bite you for not finishing your job.
Well. There's a reason even Saint Dismas wound up on a cross.
Not that makes sense.
I just wanted an excuse to reference pirates and daydream about getting a ship and sailing away.
Roxy: Mm, as T.S. Lawrence would say, the dreamers of the day are dangerous men.
Seebar. Merde. Ya ben zone uh.
We've been slow at work....student load has been at an all time low...but now there are officially rumors and talks of cutbacks and layoffs. Oh man. I don't want to get fired. I mean, it's not the best job in the world, not the end all be all for me, but it's a good job. Easy work, good pay, good bennies. I've gotten indolent with it. I know that.
But man...I just know if they do officially decide to start chopping heads at Dispatch, mine will be one of the first to go. Probably the only one to go. I've done the math. You only need about five people to run dispatch, three for each day Monday-Friday, two for the weekend. Right now we've got....how many people have we got? Me, Perkins, Jasmine, Rachel, Corinne, and Tal. I know they've been gunning after me ever since January when I did the groundschool and they wanted me to cut my hair.
Well. Worst case: I get fired. Tomorrow, I sleep in a little, go to the gym, come back, start applying. I've got enough in savings I can afford to keep my car for about a month or two, depending on if I get the payments lowered. Worst case, if I haven't found a job in a month, I'll dump it and go back to the Firebird...if she'll take me back.
Now to be absolutely positive, if I do get fired, first two jobs I'm going to apply for will be Disney and Piper, Disney because....it's Disney bro. Piper...good money. Better than what I'm making. But they tend to be a little unfaithful with employees.
And you know what, maybe I'll do a mini vacation, maybe I'll take a week or two and travel around, it'd be fun to go to France, do some touristy crap. Maybe go to LA, check out the Griffith Observatory.
And I'd have more time for writing! Admittedly, I probably wouldn't utilize it as much as I should. Okay. Phew. No biggie.
