Dire times...AGAIN.

I'm laid off.  Again.  I hate life right now and it's justified because of how badly I got fucked in losing this job.  The people involved didn't care, they didn't listen, they were incredibly unprofessional, massive miscommunication, sexist (all female staff) and the site I was working at was a sinking ship where corporate turned a blind eye.  I was set up to fail from the get-go, but I held on because I really needed the cash.  I did my job the best I could and tried to make sure my kids had a fun environment.  Sometimes, though, that's just not enough.

 

I had a brief angry moment, but I realized that I'm better off without those fucks and I'm looking to move onto a place where I'm much better appreciated and paid better because we weren't paid nearly as well as we should have been.  I say "we" because I got really friendly with the kinder teacher and this job is essential for her right now due to a really really fucked up year.  Husband turned to drugs, stole all her kid's stuff and basically raped her soul after twelve years of marriage.  Really sad.  We got pretty close and she takes so much shit at this place it's astounding, but she has to hang with it for the same reason that I had to.  She does things the site director and site supervisor should be doing, the higher ups leave early and we didn't get what we needed. 

 

Sad that good people like her get shafted so bad and people like me are seen as a threat and intimidate people because we're smarter, more organized and recognize what's REALLY going on.  Onto the next thing, I guess.

For what it's worth, I

For what it's worth, I admire the crap out of people who do the work you do. Hope you find a new job soon, with a better work environment than the one you're leaving behind. All the best.

Thanks, I really appreciate it.  I dealt with a lot of shit, was sick almost every other week and had to deal with the bottom rung of the parent ladder, but it was about the kids, nothing else and they all lost sight of that.
