Things went easier at work then I thought it would after being gone for a week. I was afraid I would have tons of important emails but there were only 25 and none THAT important.
Some of you may have read about my work troubles the past years. There was this jerk at the office that was really giving me a bad time.... call it harassment if you want. He poisoned others against me, too. I was close to a nervous breakdown last summer and part of my recent health problems MAY be caused by all of that. I even considered quitting (now-a-days you don't quit a good paying job with the government with only 5 more years to work, but that's how bad things had gotten).
Well, that guy finally went into retirement, but one of the new guys he trained in is such an arrogant SOB
Anyway, it got pretty much to the point that no matter what I would say, no one would listen. The Jerk, before leaving, even called me incompetent right to my face! Yet he was the prime example of incompetence! I tried to attach his actions to his age (65) and assumed he was just.... stupid,
.....or simply full of shit!
But now... oh wonder! Now the way of doing some things are being changed.... and changed to the way I tried to have them done to begin with! Are they beginning to realise I wasn't so "incompetent" or wrong after all?
I had to laugh when my boss told me today about a change in proceedures that he, along with the arrogant guy (Jerk 2) and the other new guy (who is ok ... so far. He arrived as a replacement for the Jerk so didn't get "poisoned"), talked about last week during my absence. Those are the exact proceedures I have been fighting for the past couple of years!
So that made me feel good..... now I just have to wait and see how things develope over the next weeks.
Otherwise not much new to report. Next weekend is a holiday weekend once again. The Germans celebrate Pentecost Monday as a legal holiday! Next month I have tons of weekend business stuff to do.... air shows to visit that I am NOT particularly looking forward to. I know, for some of you that would be hard to believe. Maybe I'll get some interesting pictures out of it.
P.S. I'm beginning to feel more and more at home over at KCL... lots of former JS'ers showing up there.
I have noticed a huge drop in updates among my favs here at blogger... I hope it's only temporary. Even if I spend more time at KCL, I will still check out this place and post occassionaly. I hope my 101 followers will continue to visit me *wink*
