If I quit, I can't get unemployment. So I may as well ride it out till I get something else. Talked with another recruiter Thursday on my ride home. I am looking.

Seriously though, is it normal for new moms to forget who they are outside of mommy hood? I can't think of things I enjoy anymore. Completely weird.

Don't make a hobbit of it, is all.

I have a similar problem, though unrelated to motherhood. I played sports pretty much year round like every day in high school, but now in college there aren't any good opportunities to do sports. The gym just isn't as fun as volleyball or rowing. So I don't know what to do with my spare time, and I end up spending an inordinate amount of time on the internet. Especially on a three day weekend where most people go home.

Thanks.
Part of my problem is having gaps in my work history due to the whole breast cancer thing. When I explain that, people balk because I may get sick again and they don't want to take the chance.

It's one of the after effects of a bout with cancer that no one warns you about...that has a part to play in why I stay where I am...I need to show continuity in employment. Cancer - the gift that keeps on giving. Dodgy

Oh, wow. I did not even think of that. Sad A girl in my department has had a few bouts with cancer over the years. She started working there right about the same time as I did and then was out for months, but the company took her back and she's still with us.

Anyway, I really hope you are able to find something better, Anj. That job sounds about as awful as it can get. Undecided

We were told that if anyone couldn't wait a day for their paycheck they needed to learn to manage their money better. Blink Pot meet kettle.

Owner goes on to say that he is a big follower of Dave Ramsey (David L. "Dave" Ramsey III is an American financial author, radio host, television personality, and motivational speaker. His show and writings strongly focus on encouraging people to get out of debt.) And that perhaps he should get some courses from Dave Ramsey for people at work to listen to. Blink

Says the company isn't in debt. BlinkBlink

Says that if people incurred fees because of autodrafts that bounced, it sucks to be them. He will not be making any compensation toward those issues.

Big-mouthed marketing bitch, who looks like Mimi from The Drew Carey Show, turns on the tears and chokes out a tearful tribute to owner and says we are all one big family who could have asked for help from any other employee since she has personally helped people out in the past. Mind you, a month ago she was the one screaming the loudest when she didn't get her direct deposit though she did get a check shortly after lunch.

At this point, until I find something else, I just have to watch to see how ludicrous things can get.

I spent most of the meeting in an internal dialogue that consisted of - show no emotion, show no emotion, are you fucking kidding me, show no emotion...over and over.

Facepalm

This shit cannot be legal. Surely there is no fucking way that this wanker is legally allowed to not pay people without compensation!

There has got to be some group in the area that are supposed to deal with this shit. A trades standards commission? Worker's rights rep lobby? State-appointed Ombudsman? An opinionated guy wearing a customisable sandwich board?

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

RE: Ranting corner
Today, at the state fair, I saw:

A booth that asked, "do you think you're going to heaven?"

Another that professed evolution was untrue, showing a loop of Ray Comfort doing his thing where he quizzes people on what they think evolution is...Facepalm

Still another booth of prolifers handing out plastic fetuses.

And still another handing out free copies of the bible. I did ask them, since they had a crowd, if it came with a parental guidance warning...

Today would have been a great day to have a TTA tee shirt or something like that.

I spent the longest time tho talking to the pot people and complained they weren't handing out free samples. Big Grin
