Hello? Is anybody there?

Total silence is not helping me feel better - some gratuitous sympathy would be nice.


Pretty please

    Hi Mrs A

    Yes, it does seem that instead of having a prince amongst days, you have found yourself subjected to the guttersnipe variety, and a smelly impudent guttersnipe at that. However, I'm sure that if I were a candidate and you told me what had happened, I'd fill in a new form with nowt more than a minor wince and some empathy for you.

    Am enjoying your blog along with Mr A's (being a fellow civil servant, although not from the branch that gets to play with big toys).

    Hope the day (what's left of it) improves,

    I've been meaning to visit you again for days and am going to put a link on my site now. Sounds like you're having unfair shares...I hope it gets better quickly! Keep juggling, tell them all your house fell down and the dog ate your homework and your car exploded!
    (I expect you've done jumping up and down and screaming loudly?)

    Dear Dear Mrs. A..I'm SOOO sorry that you are having such a horrendous shitty time!!!
    I had some Minor problems with this hysterical Internet and Computer thingy's, over the weekend..and other Health Problems I won't go into..BUT, I'm so very sorry you have had such a say the least....time.
    I just went over to DAnny Miler to see if anyone had visited him..I'm so very glad you did, AND, that you left such a very personal comment...Don't you feel what he has written is truly Profound?
    And, funny, too! Anyway, my dear Mrs. A., I hope people come and visit you and give you the feedback you soooo richly deserve.
    I am so sorry it's taken this long for me to get back here to visit you!

    Hey Mrs A.....

    Sorry hon, last night was spent wrapping pressies and keeping Charlie at bay!

    I agree with pixi - tell your candidates the truth. These things happen....

    You know I loves you, babe........ :-)

    Thanks guys - feeling a bit better today.

    I will explain to the candidates, but it just feels that everything is out to get me on this course & the fact that my boss is the examiner doesn't help matters!

    i spent the night composing a wonderful resignation letter - but think that maybe I should not actually write all of it down:-) Hopefully i'll be able to use bits of it soonish though.

    Stack shelves in ALdi babe - they pay more, apparantly tesco's are crap to work for *grin*

    as to a resignation - how does this sound?:

    It is with the utmost relief and happiness that I tender my resignation with immediate effect.
    I have finally come to my senses and realised that this poisoned chalice of a pay packet is no longer worth the agony required to work for it, nor is it worth the sacrifice of my time, morals and any kind of life outside of work I might dare consider having.

    This was a relatively straightforward decision complicated solely by the fear that my future career might suffer from my leaving without another job to go on to.
    While I have a high degree of personal respect for yourself and the changes you have attempted to bring into effect, I am no longer comfortable working for an organization largely populated by racists, vengeful rivalries, and an upper management structure reminiscent of imperial Chinese literature. In fact, I dare say that I would rather be tied in a leather bag with ravenous, rabid ocelots than remain at this company any longer than the single weeks notice period stated in my contract.
    I wish you well and for your chosen careers sake, continued success in following the company’s goals to turn vibrant, productive, dedicated employees into an aimless, shambling group of dry, bitter, stressed out husks.
    Respectfully submitted,

    Thanks Vics, I think some of that paraphrased my midnight musings, but my real resignation letter will be checked carefully for libelous comments - partly because I'm seriously condiering sueing for constructive dismissal:-)
