>So last night I left a message with the personnel agency because I called at 5:01 p.m. and they had already forwarded the phone to voicemail. In the message I told them I wasn’t going to go in. I have an interview today and I don’t want to miss it because I’m working at a job that won’t even tell me if I’m hired or not until mid-July (see entry below).
This morning I get a call from Pie Woman who leaves the “are you dead in a ditch, is that why you’re not in the office?” type message. What’s really great is that I don’t even report to Pie Woman. She’s like the office manager with her own minions. Why didn’t my supervisor or her other assistant call me?
I also thought I had sent an email to my supervisors, last night, telling them my decision but as it turns out I misspelled their email addresses and wasn’t aware of it until this morning.
Normally, the personnel agency would contact the client and let them know that the candidate will not be coming in and that they are looking for a replacement. Apparently, they only do that in the Bay Area and not in this cow town.
So I re-send the email, which was very professional and not bitchy like I wanted to be. Then I get a call from the personnel agency. My supervisor wants to make me an offer. So, I have to quit or threaten to quit in order to get results? How fucking lame. I don’t work like that.
I felt beyond relieved when I decided not to go back to that job. I had only been working there for a week and a half and I was already starting to dread it. I felt like I had been working there for years. It was not a good environment for me.
>Good for you! They can take their Pie and shove it.
>There you go. Now you won’t have to thank them anymore.
>Why would you want to hire someone who just ditches the job? People are crazy. When I wanted the job, they didn’t care about me. When I don’t show up, suddenly I’m the best thing since sliced bread.
I seriously hate pie now.
