RIP Whiskey the Cat

3 years ago today I lost my Whiskey. RIP..Whiskey Von KittyKat

Big Brother is Watching You

Day 1 of unemployment. I accidently set my alarm and was awoken at the god awful time of 4.45am to the annoying blast of sound that comes from my sony alarm clock. Life will take some adjusting to now that I am a woman of leisure and not by choice.

As much as I hated the job I did truly like the people but people let you down. Especially when it comes to their jobs. I know I did nothing wrong. I know I tried. I will try to move on.

It's very easy to fall into a trap of feeling sorry for yourself and believe me I've done it several times. I do not know why bad things always happen to me. I do not know why no one ever feels I'm worth the fight. I suppose I'm just disposable.

I do not have it in me to be corrupt or to step on other people for my own gain. I try to roll with the punches. Keep my head down and carry on. Look where its got me..but I wouldn't want to be such a person. I wont be that sort of person.

It's Happened Again..

How crazy is this?..Yesterday I received a memo saying I got a 15 cent raise. All was successful on my 6 month review...Then today after lunch I get the sack. I'm told that I received too many scripting alerts in a short span of time. What an utter crock of s^^t. The first scripting alert I knew of was brought to my attention last Saturday during a weekly coaching. It was more or less stated that I skipped one step and wasn't a big deal. Basically a slap on the wrist. The other 3 god only knows where they came from. No warning. No discussion about the problem. Just pack and leave.

I really thought more of my boss. I know they are all sh^ting themselves up there. Everyone is afraid of losing their jobs but not to back your employee up and say..Hey, We haven't discussed this in the powers that be.. is totally unacceptable.

Just a word for people out there. When you phone in for help with it a service call or a replacement. That claim counts against the agent you are speaking with and leads to termination. Please take the time to try to fix the problem over the phone and don't give that agent a hard time.

I can honestly say I did the best job I could. I tried to be fair and to treat people with respect and do what was right. It got me nowhere.

Now, I have no idea what I will do. Jobs are far and few between here. I haven't the courage to tell my mother. This will break her heart. I'm at a loss.

I am so thankful for my wonderful twitter friends. They have all been so supportive.

The world is a cruel cruel place and I've got a feeling its about to become a terrible place for me.

Keep me in your thoughts

Rain, Work and .....

Today I received a memo saying that I've gotten a 15 cent raise. Exciting huh? Every little bit helps. I only worked half a day. Wasn't in the mood for it anyway. Made an old lady cry because she refused to do anything to get her tv working yet became irate when I told her a tech couldn't come out until tomorrow. People are crazy!

Came home and watched Sarah Jane Adventures. David Tennant is in this weeks episodes. Hoorah! Then I had a nap. Now I've got a headache and I'm feeling a bit bummed. Just hope I can get back to sleep in a little bit.

My life is so shit. Soon I will just make up stuff. Maybe that will be more exciting.

Another Day

It's Wednesday which is tentatively my Sunday. I am so not ready to go back to work in the morning but I must. Money must be made and spent and life must carry on.

I've upgraded my desktop pc to Windows 7. Faster than Vista so that's an improvement but other than that I'm not impressed. I've eaten chocolate. I've slept. I've twittered.

I'm rubbish at blogging but I rock!!

That is all.
