Last I checked, im grown...

Song of the day- .. AINT NO SONG OF THE DAY. My speakers at work dont work. so all I been hearing all day is ruffling papers. Everybody get on that "stomp" hype and make beats at ya desk.. boom boom clack!


So yesterday, as Im coming back from Carl's Jr/Green Burrito with my nachos, and Mrs. Crazy weave (bosslady) calls me in her ofice with this dumb smirk on her face. Lookin like she just found her favorite easter egg or something, she proceeds to tell me she has some good news. Apparently, she has "manipulated" the powers that be to keep us around another week, since next week is "administrative appreciation day" on Wednesday. I mean shes giddy, happy as a 6 yr old on christmas morning. Im just sitting there looking at her like, OK... so I consider it and tell her ill stay, I go back to my desk and ponder over some things and get to thinking. Yea Im happy I get to get another weeks check, GOD's way of helping me out a little longer until my next job comes.. preciate that lord.. but Ill be damned if I sit here and get treated like kunta kinte.. see, I know whats going on. They got all this backlogged work, and they dont have noone to do it until the permanents actually get here, give or take a couple weeks. But, im not the one to sit and wait for you to tell me that next week, wait not this week the week after.. wait maybe in 2 weeks, will be my last day. Im already in the negative mindset around here that Im just trying to make some connections and do it movin from the spot that dropped me like a 2.00 hooker..yet you want me to be ecstatic when you tell me YEYYY! WE GOT YOU ANOTHA WEEK OFFA DEATH ROW!

...miss me..with that.

So Im happy to gain another check, and be able to live comfortably a little longer, granted I fully expect to be blessed with a new gig sooner than later. But for the record, my birthday aint June 7th 2003.. its June 7th, 1983.. I told my boss I fully feel like yall givin me the toddler treatment.. toyin with me..and last I checked.. Im grown

WOMP..

bruh, I understand. I've had the "joy" of waiting until the LAST DAY when I was being laid off/company closed, and it sucks....at the same time, I've had that, "hey guys, lets meet up for lunch....don't bother to go back after we are done eating, there is no job for you" We need to make our own shit man, I swear.

Management is a mess! How they expect you to be happy enough to do some real work during your last week boggles the mind.

Use the time to continue looking for something better! Good luck!

Sexxy Luv said...

Everyone knows the last couple of weeks at the company are supose to be spent kicked back doing you, so do just that.

bein on call at the hospital kinda puts me in the same boat a little... like over the christmas holiday, when I KNEW they needed me, but didn't call for 'budget' reasons, when someone had just quit and they were actually short handed... but then when i'm busy with school stuff, they blow my phone up and i try to scramble my schedule so that i can get a few hours in (college aint free...lol)... sigh... it can get frustrating...

hilarious post swag...

That's good that you get another weeks pay. But she can't keep dragging you along like that. They don't know that once a Gemini's mind is made up, it's a wrap!?!

Keisha "Kitten" Isaacs said...

I like that..."the toddler treatment"....lol

I don't care for my job 100%, but the other day God told me to "Stop fussing and Start trusting"....we work where we work for a reason and in the end there's a lesson to learn that will take us to the next level....believe that...peace & blessings
