NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

... time to make my own future a shit load better than it was :) onwards :)

 

When I was leaving I told my boss that I didn't want any speeches, presents, and that there was no way that I was having a leaving do. I did get a few cards, and much less than £50. I used to put my heart and soul in to that company, but fortunately, in the later years I just gave up working my heart out for them - in fact I had a right doss at their expense, if truth be known. I worked for a largish company (@ 1300 employees) and if your face didn't fit then you were going nowhere. I already knew this, but in the early days had pride that I was doing a great job. I must have saved that company a seven figure sum over the years (they were being ripped off in certain areas, and I put a stop to it). In the end I orchestrated my own redundancy. Something which I have absolutely no regrets about doing. Life's too short, and the old work place will still roll on without me. As the saying goes ' there's plenty of men and women in the graveyard, who thought they were indispensable. 

Good luck for the future crazyfool1. :)

its odd ...dont think I lack in friends there ... but just think that its such a big place everyone thinks that someone else is sorting stuff and my direct manager is absolutely useless  in the end no-one does it ... peoples lives just seem to be different these days too lots of social elements have disapeared at various things i do so people dont really think twice about not attending things anymore ... such a shame ... even a friend didn't attend afterI helped get him his job back 6 months ago ... ah well life goes on ... its gonna be a good future and will definitely be spending more time doing things I enjoy and meeting people in future . Enjoy the camping :)

 

Ah, useless twats abound! I didn't mean my message to read negatively - hope you don't take it that way. 😀

Camping will be fun, but not as much fun as in a Glastonbury field!

fairly similar to me I would say .. although a reasonable send off would have been good ... I worked hard till the end apart from my last day and they seemed to appreciate that at the time .. now they will enjoy a new person who might last 6 months and will do a quarter of what `I did ... thanks for your words always interested in your posts :)

no offence taken ... I know what you meant and how the internet can sometimes read ( we are only one year away from  the next festival now :) ) and fancy dress prep will start to ramp up and so might my posts on here for a bit :)

good luck, crazyfool, and anybody else who may need some.

 

this morning i was out in the back garden at about 7.30am with the dogs.  lovely morning, but there was a strange smell in the air.  our next door neighbours are building a new home in their back garden, and the builders have a portaloo on site.  this morning i caught the local poo train guy emptying the thing, hence the unusual smell.

i only mention this as it seemed apt, as this weekend of they year is the only time i smell that smell, and often at a similar hour.

Still, he's better off than that bloke in the white t shirt who appears to have only one leg.
