Sometimes shit happens and you can't do anything about it
I'm without job again from November...
I hated my job anyway, but it's always better to decide yourself when to leave.
Things are not always what they seem. Already within the first week back in June, I noticed there were some serious differences between what my boss told me and the facts.
The whole place is mucky and has not been cleaned for years. My desk was dirty and it took me two hours to clean it from papers, grease, dust and waste before I could start working.
By the end of the first week, I realised I had made a huge mistake. I said no to another position for this one. The other job was temporary, but with a good chance of being permanently employed.
Within the first two weeks, two shop floor employees were sacked. The third, the designer, was sacked before the summer holidays with three months notice. He was re-employed after the holidays for a month at a time.
We have no projects that I can execute - quite a problem as I'm employed as a project manager. Since August I've been waiting for my notice. It came on the last day of September. I was not surprised, more relieved than sad.
I've seen my boss in tears, exploding in tantrums, heard very hard language, and talking bad about my colleagues behind their back. A behaviour so unprofessional that I have never experienced anything like this. He's stressed, he's probably got a mental condition, but that's not an excuse for bad behaviour. NEVER!
I've almost down with stress, my stomach hurts, I have heavy headaches, can't sleep, all the usual signs. Next week it's autumn holidays in Denmark and I'm off too. Today I had to stay home with stomach problems and headache.
The worries about not finding a new job before November - or at least December - are a heavy burden.
Soon all my current horrors will be over and I'll take it from there. It's not my fault, I did what I could to help. The man has been riding a dead horse way too long. I'll find another horse to ride!
I'll focus on writing applications and blogging more again - not surviving - and that's worth focusing on.
