Jobless and Loving It!

This is me this morning...I so excited to announce that I quit my job! YES!!! I QUIT MY JOB!!!! OH LORD I could not stand that place nor the morons that worked there. My position was within the customer service department in which customer service is excactly what they lacked. The employees would argue with the customers, even hang up on them. Worse, they acted like children in the department. The final draw was when a birthday card was being passed around to be signed when two of the girls acutally took the car and threw it away! I could not believe it. Why? Because they didn't like her. Seriously people? I cannot work with jerks like this. I have a higher standard for life and, uh, working side-by-side with garbage is not what I signed up for.

So I am back during the days again but I am going to look for another job. I need to work since my Etsy shop is extremely slow. I am going to be VERY picky this time around and I will to a thorough investigation of the place before I accept. I would like to say I got screwed but, in a way, this was a very valuable lesson.

A big thank you goes out to you, Sharon. You understood first hand what I was going through and you know where I am at now. You were a huge help in my decision making and could not thank you enough. Another big thank you to all of my wonderful friends who had to hear about the shit-hole and all my gripes. Thank you all so much for always being here for me. I love you all so dearly.

Have a wonderful day my dear friends!

What a weight of your shoulders that must be. With some jobs leaving is the only thing you can do. I am sure you will find a much better job, one without the morons!! I wish you all the luck in finding it.

Glad you made the right choice..being around people like that only take ones spirit down..and that isn't healthy. You know, I don't get that kind of anger..throwing a birthday card in the trash?..I always told my girls..hate/anger is worse than cancer..it just eats you away..Glad you ditched the place..your too happy for the bums..

Yay! Congrats on leaving that horrible place! You did well to stick it out for as long as you did! You'll find something great soon enough. Being picky is a good plan because I believe it's important that we like our jobs. It helps us work better. And more importantly, it helps the work day pass quicker ;)

Oh that photo cracked me up! PURRfect!
