Yeah, I’m bitching about work again. If you’re sick of this topic, you’ve been warned.
I have been vocally miserable at work for a long, long time. Last month, I submitted my resignation. My boss was able to pull the resignation letter (the HR person was on vacation) because there were plans to lay me off due to a lack of funding.
Dr. Boss thought that the funds would run out at the end of the year, so I could go on maternity leave.
They’re letting me go right fucking now! I’ll be paid my vacation time, but not sick time. No severance. No benefits. (Luckily, Mouse_Spouse added me to his health insurance after we married.)
I’ve worked here for five fucking years and they’re just tossing me out.
Fuck academics, hard. Ward Churchill wants to work here so bad, he can have my job.
Fuckers. Assholes. An embarassment to higher education and research.
