Day of Joy

4 Oct

I almost called it Day of Euphoria, Ode to Joy….endless.  I cannot even put into words how happy I am feeling today.  It is my LAST day at I Do Crosswords, Little A-Hole & I’m Just a Good Ole Country Boy LLP.   Having to stifle my massive screams of delight. 

How did the resignation go?   Certainly better than expected and since I have vowed never to lie to you or to embellish…it was downright anti-climactic.  I did have to tell Bad Boss that I needed to chat and that is corporate lingo for “I’m quitting your ass.”  He figured it out prior to our talk and was quite decent and wished me the best of luck.  He DID say, “well, I understand since things around here haven’t really gone as planned.”   REALLY?  “Haven’t gone as planned?”  How about it has been a 2.5 year living nightmare??   I can tell you that unless things change, which they won’t, this pooh hole will not be open in two years.

Ok, you will get more on this later because I suspect I will be feeling PTSS for many, many days.  

Some highlights from Thursday?  (I was off Friday and went to see Big Brother for the weekend):

I told Rough n Tough I was leaving and I was kind, gracious and decent.  Her response?  “I really don’t care where you are going.”  Uh…ok, and I walked off .   How about this?  I know you drink during the day and in your car on the way home and I’m going to tell!!!!  

Useless Coworker started crying the second Bad Boss told her, which he insisted on doing before I could get to her.  She cried every time she looked at me and had to go home at 3:50 because she was so upset.  Oh…she has many, many reasons to cry.  One big one is that she should have listened to me the 1,000 times I tried to teach her things that would help her.  Hindsight is a bitch.

Bad Boss #2 has not spoken to me or looked at me since.   Bad Boss has run around like a chicken all day so far asking me questions and I think reality is sinking in for his sorry ass.  I’m trying to stick with the good karma thing and already typed detailed instructions on the things I did that he needs to know.   Oh yes, he’s already lost the email and asked me to resend and to print it out for him.

Oh, the troubles they are going to have….and here I go again, stifling my SCREAMS OF DELIGHT!   More to come….

THANK YOU for your amazing emails, thoughts, and general shared hatred for these yahoos.  You’ve kept me alive.  I am NOT going anywhere, ok?   I will keep posting!   I still have LOTS to say.

To Bad Bosses:

SEE YA, you ungrateful, “my shit doesn’t stink”, stupid, thoughtless, little, judgmental, mean-spirited, selfish little elitist assholes.  I hope you make many realizations in the next coming weeks, but I suspect you won’t due to all of the above.   May they all give you a small pang of regret.  Furthermore, kiss my effing ass.

    So very happy that you are moving out of that office… and I can’t believe R&T said that to you, wow…

    They are going to come to some hard realizations once you are gone, and isn’t that a bitch… for them! 🙂

    Can’t wait to hear about your new job.

    ENCORE! BRAVO! GOOD FOR YOU! I’m laughing the entire time of the reactions when you tell your bosses. It’s amazing that people don’t realize how good an employee they have until that employee leaves–don’t you hate that? 🙂 – Good for you girl. You’re my true heroine! Please keep us posted on your new position. Best!

    LD, I’m going to tell you something my momma told me many years ago: “When you leave, make sure they know you’re gone.” I feel certain Useless, More Useless and Most Useless are going to know you’re gone. Let us wish them well with R&T. hee! hee! hee! 🙂

    Oh, and please report R&T. Drunk drivers suck.

    This is a big day for KARMA…finally you get to slap your behind and tell ’em all to kiss it!

    I hope you relax on your break between jobs and that you never, ever, ever think about the idiots at that firm again.

    My job before the one I’m at now was wrought with distress and dummies. The job I’m at now is totally awesome and I’ve been here for almost 10 years. I’m very happy for you.

    Be careful about them calling you to ask questions. That’s one bridge you definitely want to burn.

    LD, lovin’ the mood indicator! FINALLY! Huge sigh of relief, and a big glass of something with a high alcohol content to ya!

    And if there are pictures of a woman running madly down the street shrieking “Free AT LAST!” out there on YouTube later, well, we’ll all understand. ;D

    Yippee, hooray and all that good stuff!!

    I hope you consider reporting Rough and Tough- stupid drunk drivers. At the very least I hope you move some of her ugly decorations into cabinets before you go.

    What about BB#3? Not even a fart in your general direction?

    Glad you had a fun weekend with your brother and are ready for a better work place- they are so lucky to have you!! When do you start?

    So happy for you, LD!! Been a long time overdue, and I can’t wait to read about the adventures from your new spot.

    Just hoping to draw on a bit of your good fortune as I go to a job interview TODAY….I too escaped a bad situation (but I was laid off, so I got to collect UC while looking for a new one)and today I have THE interview for the job I really want. So here’s hoping its a fantastic week all the way around!

    Bosses always have such a quaint way of putting things, don’t they? You misplace a paper clip and it’s a federal case. They run the company into the ground for 2.5 years and it’s merely, “Things didn’t go as planned.” Ha ha ha ha ha!

    Anti-climactic, eh? That is probably their modus operendi … in bed.

    Something tells me a lot of people drink during the work day. Personally I don’t but I can certainly understand the urge. What I can’t understand is being a living, walking dill hole. Yeah, you should tell.

    I like the way you say good bye!

    Gimme your address and I’ll send ya a pair of shades for your bright future.

    Woo-hoo! Nice Mood Indicator, too. Is that a lyric from Big River?

  15. harlsmits October 5, 2010 at 12:11 pm #

    WOOHOO!!! I hope your new job gives you absolutely nothing bad to post about, and you just have to keep sharing horrible stories from the last job!

  16. Alexis October 5, 2010 at 12:15 pm #

    So happy for you! Congrats on the new job. Roux can’t wait to hear all about it.

    Good for you being the ultimate class act. It will make them look at R-N-T and wonder why they did not shit can her. Maybe she has interesting dirt on the guy. Oh, good luck. Let’s have an electronic toast. Everyone, raise your glasses!!!!!! Drain that baby and pour yourself another.

    P.S. Does that mean your header is getting a fresh picture with hi-lights done in a more recent fashion?

    Congratulations! I’ve followed your journey for a while, but this means that you are going a new way! It will be so much fun to share….keep us with you.

  21. grimaud50 October 9, 2010 at 2:47 am #

    Congratulations! I’ve followed along for awhile now and am happy for you. I certainly hope you don’t stop posting now!

    Love your mood indicator 🙂

  23. katie o. October 10, 2010 at 8:47 pm #

    You are my hero.
    Plain and simple. And I couldn’t be happier for you.

  24. A Girl & Her Dot October 12, 2010 at 9:04 pm #

    Congrats!!! Do you get to have an exit interview where you lie and say “oh I’ll miss everyone so much and we should keep in touch and all of that bullshit?”

    I worked at a job where when I resigned the two bosses asked why I was leaving and it took everything to bit my tongue and not say “IT’S BECAUSE OF YOU TWO CRAZIES THAT I’M LEAVING!!!

    Go celebrate tonight and have some champagne!!

  25. Chick Fil-A Girl October 13, 2010 at 10:16 am #

    Well? Did you find a magical world and go off exploring, LD?

  30. Jade October 29, 2010 at 3:06 pm #

    Would it sound very selfish to say that I will miss you calling them assholes and spitting out in disgust? :-)))) Very happy for you though! Way to go!
