>So, it turns out the job I have is only temporary. Add to that they want me to work for a month, full time which would mean that there was no possible way I could interview for a permanent job. The only reason I took this temp job was because I thought I had a good chance of being hired permanently. The way things have gone this week it doesn’t look like the chance is good, but slim to none.
First of all, they interviewed someone else for the position. Second, they haven’t even dropped hints that I am on their radar as a candidate for the position. Third, they haven’t even said if I’m doing a good job or not. Zero feedback, I hate that.
I called the temp agency that got me the job and they weren’t too happy. Screw them. I have to look out for myself. I think under normal circumstances (i.e. not working for the city) a temp job like mine would become permanent. But since we are dealing with a government agency, nothing is normal.
Oh yeah, and my car decided to not work. My Volkswagen New Beetle decided to OVERHEAT on the way home from work. I’m literally three blocks from my parents house when the red flashy beeping light comes on. This car is only 3 years old. I had the coolant changed a month ago and now it’s all screwed up. Fucking Oil Changers!
If I didn’t have to get my timecard signed, I wouldn’t be going into the office tomorrow. But, seeing as how I would like to get paid for the time I actually worked, I’ll find some way to get downtown. I can see it now. My mom is going to have to drive me. It’ll be just like when I was in high school.
>It’s true, always do what’s best for you. All you owe a job is the work that they pay you for. After that you owe them nothing.
>Every time I get the urge to quit my job and find another, I read your blog. Quite a service you provide. 🙂 Good luck.
>Sounds like things are getting rough. Keep focused on every bit of good stuff in your world: friends, family, fireflies on a warm night. Don’t let toxicity of others take you down. You are too valuable:)
