Sio, almost four years to the date of my adventure in looking for a new job...
Posted 24 July 2012 - 04:13 PM
it's crazy. For the last almost four years Ive sent out hundreds of resumes, applications, etc... without a single interview or even return message that wasn't something like, "sorry, but you suck so..."
Here's hoping it really is for a better opportunity and most important of all, it brings me more fiat money.

It would be an epcot way to end July. Right int he middle of a construction project that the IT manager that doesn't know how to manage and leans on me too.
It's like the ultimate in "go f&%k yourself."
Fingers crossed, freddy.
I want more fiat paper too.

Corrdinator is a corporate word play used to have a manager without the title and with much less pay. yet, involves and is described as managing budgets, project management, asset management and so on (within my field).
So, after getting the list of shit i already knew about my predicament, it is unlikely I will find myself back where I should be. That's OK though, when i've finally had enough, there is always a rampage to embark on in this crumbling xociety.
Congrats on my special day.
KYS. DIAF, JOTCOM, etc.....

They just say "can you coordinate that?"
Instead of manage it and from a legal standpoint, it is in bounds of fair play.
Same job, DHS. There is very little chance for me to ever re-attain management titling as of now because I am a coordinator.
It's all good. When the last straw falls, i will simply go off on a rage and whoever ends up in the path of that well....we see what happens when you corner someone for too long.

Time will tell this tale. But Im at my last straw on this. After this many years of "trying" and "not giving up" Im in no frame of mind to keep pushing this "try more" envelope. 4 years of "trying" just to get back on track and Im done with it. Literally. Im fucking done with it.
Saying the wrong thing to me at this place could end disastrously.

Visiting friends in prison sucks. I know this from personal experience.
Besides, in your heart, I think you want to be somewhere else, doing something else anyway. And that, I'm coming to learn, is the real measure of success.
Love you, brother!

Bummer you are going through this, but it happens to all of us.
If I can say only one thing, having a defeatist attitude is an insult to your intelligence. It's okay to be pissed, but don't let the anger defeat you. You're way too smart for that.
Hope tomorrow is a better day!

You are not gonna let this ruin you. Adversity introduces us to ourselves and yourself is bigger, smarter, stronger than this. We're gonna support you in your bad week and frustration 'cause everyone goes through it, but then we're gonna help you turn that attitude on it's ass and watch you turn things around.

This is not a new problem. This is not a passing frustration. This is not a bad day or week. This is me at my absolute end with this situation. There is no turning it back. there is no more keep trying.
Have you ever seen a lion at the zoo that has been there for a while? Yes?
Now imagine that same lion being prodded daily for the amusement of others. You think given the chance that lion would not rip someone's head clean off and shit down a neck?
I am not the garnish. I am the caged lion.
