Grizzly Mama is Incorrigible

I quit my new job.

Yes I did.

Suffice it to say that Grizzly Mama is too old to stand for being treated like a child.

Sorry to hear it didn't work out. Not sure I could go back into some corporate/government box again myself.

Unfortunately, most jobs with great benefits tend to want your soul in return.

I might have given it a bit more - but the benefits weren't panning out as promised in the interview PLUS it was a union shop with a very strange union mentality PLUS it was in a very bad part of Philly. I really hate to be lied to. I really, really cannot stand that.

It's true I've got a bit of an independent streak in me - however this has never been a problem as long as they put me on night shift and don't give me any crap. :-)

Ick, Union-shop. I thought you were doing old-school 'puter-stuff.
Location, location, location - some recruiter called upwith a dubious (have to know right now!) temp job in San Francisco: ix-nay, aint going up there!

Dirtcrasher - when they told me it was a union shop I had serious gas about it. PA is not a 'right to work' state so if it's a union shop it is a REQUIREMENT to join the union whether you want to or not. Back in CO - I never joined the damn union, it was a choice there and it should be that way here, too. The legislation to make PA a 'right to work' state failed recently. In Philly the unions have it locked up. That's why Philly sucks in so many ways. (And don't any union hacks even THINK of retaliating against me for saying your unions SUCK! I'll shoot your gooney ass - goddammit!!)

Steven - I don't waste any time, honey! I'm old. It's just better to cut out quickly sometimes.

Thanks Troll...I thought you were mad at me. ;-)

That's too bad. Easy come, easy go.

I wouldn't say you're incorrigible at all. I find you highly corrigible, 'though it's rarely needed. ;^)

That OL' independence nerve is what separates you from the sheeple Monica. Clearly it wasn't right for you - something better will come along!

Well, you gotta know when to fold 'em- and if the hand sucks, well then, fold 'em early.

Abe - after looking in the dictionary again just to make sure, I will take that as a complement and thank you! :-D

David thank you and I hope that you are right. It's one of those times that we sort of have to trust the Universe (so to speak) because nothing is making sense about what direction to go right now. Trusting the Universe hasn't failed yet.

Steven you got that right baby. Glad the Disneyworld thing is working out - love those benefits!
