Found out today that one of my former Work Boys™ had a visit with HR today that resulted in us probably running into each other in the unemployment line sometime in the near future. My former Work Boys™ are this group of dudes that all kind of remind me of an older brother that I never wanted, but just kinda ended up with. They’re all really good guys and when I hear something like this happens, it makes my blood completely boil. This particular Work Boy™ was fired of an absolutely stupid reason that makes things reek of “hey, let’s get rid of people for no reason!”.
It sucks not being employed, it sucks not having my regular paycheck, and it sucks not being around people every day. I have to forcibly make myself do something every day other than sit in front of the computer applying for jobs or in front of the TV watching the Tyra Banks show (I actually haven’t done that yet). I know what depression’s like and know that not having a job could quite possibly send me teetering onto that line once again. But you know what?
I’d rather be laying in the corner in the fetal position, sharing a packet of Ramen noodles with my dog then working for the shit-for-brains operation they have going on at my former employer. I could not have been boosted out of there at a better time. Had I been employed there today, I would have gotten fired over my Work Boy™ getting kicked out the door.
Now, I should probably start password-protecting this type of thing while I’m looking for a new job, because this kind of makes me sound, well, crazy.
And, you know, there’s some other stuff I wanna write about that might not be everyone-in-the-world-appropriate. What’s the bestest way to go about handing out this password? Should I email everyone I like? Should I make all you folks email me for it? I’ve never been all secretive and shit!
