So there I am! Living it up in my 30-somethings with a ridiculously hot hubby, 3 seriously outgoing matter-of-fact smart beautiful kids, a cat named Roxii that just won't quit, 2 chihuahuas named Lokii (what was I thinking) and Brodii who don't understand the concept of pee outside.

I'm a strongly opinionated, outspoken, inappropriate and absolutely unapologetic chick going through this thing called life and trying to do it with my sanity intact. So far, this isn't working out so well!

Follow me as I confession myself straight to the LCBO. My rants, my way...you've been warned ;) Xo

Make Up My Mind...Ass!

| No comment
Well today has just been one of those days...that followed another one of 'them' days which was a result of 'that' day.

Rewind a few weeks ago and I was employed full time for a company that I thought was kind of rockin...right up until they allowed one shady s.o.a.b (I'm being SUPER polite right now) to turn my world upside down.

Why ever would someone want to do that?

Despite thinking that there are still a bunch of GOOD district managers, I have come to the unfortunately blindsided conclusion, that most will do any (and every) thing they need to do in order to save their own asses, even at the expense of their team. Forget the fact that you have been a completely useless support system for not only myself, but the rest of the staff that I managed (and every other surrounding store), but there is no need to get rid of people just because they voice the opinion and reach out to the HR department (so much for confidentiality) for the support that you are so completely not giving.

What has everyone, including someone IN HR, wondering is the why? When sales were up for the first month in 2013, despite being dumped in and left to sink or swim with a basically entirely new staff (did I mention the previous manager and half the staff left to go work with her and even said good luck on the support you won't receive), I think I managed to keep afloat just fine by finding my own resources because you supplied NONE! Want to also say to the girls that all left "Thanks so much for being right...damnit!".

Fast forward to present day and I have a few emotions going on.

Emotion #1: Rage - for the obvious reason that at that company it doesn't matter WHAT you know, or HOW WELL you perform, unless you are licking someone ass you aren't going to get ahead in their game!

Emotion #2: Relief - because I will NEVER...EVER bow down to anyone and lick a lotta in order to get the respect and support that I not only need, but DESERVE. Relief that since then more people have seen exactly what is going on and are getting the "f@#$ outta dodge" because she is a "sneaky, disrespectful sorry excuse for a district manager that I have ever had the displeasure of working for. Stupidest mistake that company has ever made!" (yikes, tell me how you really feel!) Relief that I no longer have to deal with your unrealistic hollier than thou expectations because I am not a dog nor a machine...I AM HUMAN!

Emotion #3: Frustration - because trying to find another job is going horribly...

Here's Why!

- No matter where I apply people always want to contact your previous employer which wouldn't be a problem if I wasn't dealing with a labour dispute for the complete lack of professionalism (she needs to look that word up) you have shown and most won't settle for speaking to the next best thing (my previous right hand woman) -- apparently not good enough
- If I dumb down my resume so my qualifications aren't so robust I am screwing myself out of the opportunities I could be enjoying
- I'm overqualified (I swear if I hear that word again I'm going to snap and just go homeless because if I don't find a job that's exactly what is going to happen) for all the positions that look great
- I'm not settling for a lesser position that takes me completely out of the range that makes sense. By this I mean taking a job making x amount of dollars when it's going to cost you almost half of that in travel and babysitting costs. Oh and don't forget the taxes as well so by the time you factor it all in I'm making basically nothing and not coming out ahead by much, if at all, which doesn't help with the expenses that not only accumulate from having the job, but the ones from just breathing in general.

These are just some of the whys behind it. I have 3 job offers on the table now, a couple I have turned down and another lined up for next Wednesday which I'm a little hopeful for but not so sure. The first 2 are ironically located in the same place. Both also basically pay the same. Both would require me to be leaving at 7:30am and not getting home until almost 7pm (potentially even later) every shift. Do all the math etc and I think I'm "working" for 11.5 hours a day for a grand total that's so embarrassing I'm not going to post it.

The other offer was more appealing with less responsibility but with it came less money (duh) but with absolutely ridiculous work hours. I am not trying to never be home for my kids but this one would have me getting them off to school in the morning and then NEVER tucking them into bed until Saturday or Sunday but that would be all. My babes are still my babes. Oldest is 9, youngest is 5...they need me! Factor in everything else and it looks like I would be sitting around the same as the above. It's disgusting. Totally disgusting.

Get into a new field of work? Bahaha that's hilarious. Again I'm over qualified for jobs that I looked into that weren't in that particular field. Again I will dumb down the resume which will in turn devalue my damn worth.

And now that I've just spent too much time even thinking about this shit do you know what I am coming to the conclusion of?

Fuck it...I'm going into blogging and praying to some blog goddess that this turns profitable...bahahaha...more wine anyone?
