This is Bullshiz!

Ah yes, here I am later than 2pm in the afternoon and I haven’t quit.


Because my boss literally “bumped” me from today’s meetings. That’s right, I got bumped.

With nowhere else to turn, I am just going to write up my notice over email and email it to her before I go home today (she’s off tomorrow).

What else should I have expected from this place?!

Or maybe I’ll just run into her office, quit, and then slam-dunk a cheeseburger on her head. That way I’ll always be remembered.

D Day

I guess I am not so much dumping, as I am just flat out quitting my job today.

I am pretty terrified of having to quit my first permanent office job. My last office job was a contract, so it was pretty easy to leave on my last day. My last job at the hospital though, was delightful to quit since the boss was ever-absent and a huge tool. I’m sure I’ll feel a nice sense of release when I actually hand the letter over, but I’m pretty intimidated.

I guess it’s just one of those unavoidables in life though. Two o’clock is going to come whether I like it or not (we have a meeting scheduled), and I’m going to have to utter whatever it is that I finally decide to say when I give my notice.

I really don’t know what to say at this point when I walk in there. I am taking Lorkeet’s advice and being just straightforward and to the point, giving no details to her (because, frankly, it’s none of her business).

I’m kind of mad though because I feel like I am giving up, like I am throwing in the towel. I guess I am though. I don’t want to be here anymore, and the work that I feel is so meaningful that this organization does, I don’t really get to be involved with. That’s the disappointing thing about working in fund development. You have to suck up to people for money, but don’t get to see the every day effect that the funds you raise actually has on people.

I have a feeling that I am going to really enjoy my new job. Sure, I took a pay cut to have it, but I really think I’ll enjoy it a lot more because of the people I’ll be working with.

I don’t know what it is about working in an office with all women, but I vow to try my hardest never to work in an office of them again. It’s too catty, too emotional, too full of estrogen-educed hatred for anyone younger than the average.

Superdogs are on the way!

Stampede is coming, and we all know what that means…..SUPERDOGS! Okay, Stampede isn’t coming until July 5th, but I am seriously excited for my last Stampede viewing of the fantastic, sometimes disastrous Superdogs show.

For those of you who haven’t seen Superdogs before, I say to you, “HOW CAN YOU SAY YOU HAVE LIVED??!” This is something everyone should see at least once.

Okay, okay, I know the show hasn’t really changed in the last 20 years or so, but my hope to be able to see a pug every year keeps bringing me back. Sadly, last year there were no superpugs, but I have high hopes for this year, since I have seen them perform. Sure, there’s the occasional fat bulldog that won’t do anything, and then there’s the extremely obedient labs, but it’s the pug that has always been dear to my heart.

If I manage to get close enough to the action this year, I will make sure to take a video of the glorious doggy bonanza!
