Today at work was day one of being replaced. The new girl seems quiet, and I can't quite get a read on her. She'll probably hate the job.

I know for sure I'm being replaced though because new girl told me that when they were interviewing her they said a position was opening up soon and if she'd be interested. :P

The only thing that hurt today was when my boss told new girl (names left out for confidentiality haha) that "this was her task list" and these are all her new tasks.

Though are my tasks, I wrote that damn task list... argh. But I guess it isn't mine any longer.

Frankly my boss is an idiot for getting rid of me when she's going on maternity leave, leaving new replacement boss without much back-up but whatever. Scott's leaving and we just hired a new disputes guy too.

Also because I know I'm getting canned I pretty much don't care what I say anymore (within reason) and they were discussing the pumpkin carving the new people will have to do tomorrow. All of the unfortunate recruits (including new boss guy) were expounding on their lack of pumpkin carving skillz so I found a picture of the gold star with "you tried" written in it and e-mailed it to the entire department with the words "for tomorrow" written in the subject line.

It was hilarious and my boss made that disapproving uncomfortable "yes, well" comment and I didn't give a fuck because it made almost everyone else laugh. *She* was the one who thought it was hilarious to be like "well if you don't do well carving the pumpkin I guess we'll just have to fire you, haha" and NO ONE LAUGHED.


Yeah there are benefits to not giving a fuck.

I'm a jerk.

Awww, I'm sorry things are going shitty for you, ashke. It's a real dick thing for ANY business to do. Any possibilities on the horizon?

Noooope. I'm job hunting currently. Half-assedly. I really should hunt harder because once new girl is trained my job is on the line, but I'm also really tired. -_-

I think I know why they're not ACTUALLY telling you you're being replaced yet: they want to make sure you stay to train the new girl. If you know you're being fired for sure, you're not going to give two effs and you might even quit. Many years ago the company my mother worked for made the mistake of telling her she was being replaced and then they expected her to train her replacement. She was like "Hell no" and refused to train her.

Be a jerk. Most of the time it does pay to be a decent human being but if they think it's funny to make jokes about firing you when it seems very likely that that is what is going to happen, then what respect have they earned from you?

I'm training the new girl like a good corporate slave. I don't even know why I'm doing it. I just am. I don't have it in me to refuse. I think I'm a bit broken.

Good on your mom for standing up for herself!

That sucks.
As they say, "No fucks were given."

Wow, sorry but your boss is a bitch on wheels. It makes me kinda glad that you're leaving that place. Surely there is a better job out there for you, with decent people who don't make nasty jokes like that!

Well, I did joke too. LOL I have a meeting with the VP of the company tomorrow, and if I manage to get up early enough, I plan to dress up like Vriska, blue jeans and all. Because there is nothing like dressing up like a homestuck troll in a stuffy office environment. I'm sure it'll be epic and I'll blog all about it. :D

Aren't there though!

'What are they gonna do? Fire me? Oh WAIT.' My office has not been cleaned for two weeks and I've been 'pffft' about filing, to, because I won't have to hunt for the misfiled things anymore!

As much as it sucks, there is quite a bit of freedom...

I'm sorry to hear about your troubles as well. :( Do you have another job lined up or an idea what to do next?

Nope. I've been working over time helping them close the business, so I've been too tired/stressed to really hunt for a new job.

And now that I am actually unemployed, I think I'm going to rest a few days before I actively job hunt.

It's a weird feeling...

I am sorry to hear that definitely. :( A couple of days of rest might be good for the soul...

Do you at least get employment insurance? ^^
