yup. pretty much sums up me right now (by the way, he’s an adorable hedgehog, ain’t he?)
About two weeks ago, I said Yeah, so the decision I’ve been putting off was pretty much made for me today. Fuck.
I saw the writing on the wall. They were hiring an Assistant GM. The piles of work I had dried up. I hadn’t had a raise since 2010.
But, I foolishly believed it would be different. I gave them three years (probably 4 if you count all the overtime I put in), almost wound up in a psych ward because I was afraid to let them down, and kept the company together during some of the worse bullshit I’ve ever seen.
I’m so glad I started looking for a job a few weeks ago, I’m so glad they gave me a severance package, and I’m so glad to be the fuck out of there.
I haven’t been happy for a long time, but I stuck through the crap because I thought it would be worth it…
... and it wasn’t. It so totally wasn’t.
C’est la vie
Time to move on to bigger and better things.
