...so my involvement in the contract I worked on for three years has ended, not by my choosing. I believe this had a lot to do with the douchebag and his desire to eliminate anyone who could possibly replace him in his job, which, I was the only person on the contract that could.
My life is upside-down at the moment as I try and close up on other opportunities - new opportunities - and land on my feet. I'm going to touch base with some old contacts and see what's what.
As it ends though, I can honestly say I'm not upset. I'm a little unsure of the immediate future.... but the lies, deception and back-stabbing I've had to deal with over the past 18 months has finally ended.
Fuck him and his retarded, high-schoolish behavior. He is not a professional by any definition of the word and karma will bite his ass harder than his table-saw bit his thumb.
One can only hope the table-saw finishes the job. Darwin would indeed be pleased by that.
Now.. on to new opportunities, hopefully with people I've enjoyed working with and that I can trust.
I need to call Etch today...
I think he has a twin brother here in the UK who is my boss. Good luck for a future without him in it...it can only be better.
Good things to come brother, good things.
Let's toast to a year of positive changes!
But...but...who are we gonna blame insanely stupid moves on now?
Seriously though, we know how the doors of opportunity work, as one is closing another is opening. You'll land on your feet and in a much better position than before. Chin up and eyes forward, good things are coming. :)
...honestly this whole week has been insane. When I say the impossible happened, it relates to a situation with some customer equipment that... simply... is doing something impossible by all claims made... we replaced the memory and yet it is remembering a recorded message from two weeks ago...
...impossible. Yet, happening.
I spent way too long this week fighting battles that shouldn't have needed to be fought.
I'm exhausted. Mentally I'm beyond exhausted.
I need a break... that I won't be getting tomorrow.
...today was insane. The impossible happened. I was forced to make some stark realizations that will change my life and the lives of those around me.
...and I had to pick up my kids, late.. get them dinner, late... and then drag them back to a work site with me until... very late. A whole lot of running around and I feel like I've accomplished nothing good today...
They're sleeping now. Amazing how quickly they settle in when it's three hours past their normal bed time...
Tomorrow is going to be more of the same... and next week will be full of pain... but I've always managed to grow from my pain, so we shall see where I land.
