RE: Depressed
Maybe instead of looking at cute bunnies, and fuzzy sweetness, maybe you should watch someone mad and fed up with the world.

Lewis Black comes to mind. This goes back to the Bush presidency, it's an oldie but goodie.




Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Hey Anj. Just wanted to say congrats on the new job. Really good news!

Thumbsup

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Yesterday I sent an email thanking them for their interest and for taking the time to meet with me. I knew the office was closed but figured I would go for it by letting them know how interested I am.

Today after nearly jittering out of my skin, I ran a couple quick errands...damn sinuses, needed Zyrtec-D. I got home and had an email with a job offer from the company. Not just yes but hell yes!

I had hoped Santa would bring me a job...he was a little late but he came through. Tongue

I start next Tuesday. Jean, t-shirts, and tennis shoes are the norm for dress requirements so I don't need to worry about a wardrobe.

Things are looking up. Thumbsup

RE: Depressed
I guess some explanation is in order. I did start a job in mid-September. It's hard to believe that I managed to find a place that is more dysfunctional and abusive than the job I was in for three years before it got moved to Colorado. People constantly screaming and swearing at other people and lots of passive-aggressive crap. I was to the point where it was making me physically ill to be there. I was shaking and sick to my stomach and couldn't figure out what I needed to do to make it better. Talking to HR was out as the HR lady was the worst and she was my boss.

I went in to work on December 1 to find another slew of bitchy email messages from her...one informing me that I could no longer talk to the project managers who I needed in order to do my purchasing job. I really hadn't been trained unless you count being screamed at when I didn't do something according to procedures I knew nothing about. There was also an email telling me I had to start cross training someone else. My boss was not in, she had another doctor appointment, so I waited for her to come in and finally packed up my belongings and left.

Since I quit I couldn't draw unemployment and this is a bad time to be looking for work - right at the holidays.

I found an ad for a CPA firm that made it clear they are concerned about having a pleasant work environment while making sure clients are taken care of. Anyway, they called me last Thursday and I met with the two partners Friday morning. Yesterday I received a job offer from them and I happily accepted.

The commute is good, pay is okay, jeans and T-shirts are the dress code. I am excited...I sure hope they are as they presented themselves...but in reading their website, I think they are. This job will also give me the chance to learn more about the accounting side of things.

My fingers are crossed and my hopes are high. Yes

Thank you for urging me back in October to get back on antidepressants. I can't imagine how far I would have fallen had I not done that.

**I sent a text to the head project manager when I left and thanked him for all his help while I was there. I also (half jokingly) said I hoped Santa would bring me a job. I sent him a text today letting him know that I did find a job and wishing him a happy New Year...his reply text said that he quit the job two days after I did...and he had been there a couple years. He was being raked over the coals for flying to Michigan for his grandmother's funeral though he was only gone over a weekend. I wasn't the only one they treated poorly.
