I’ve probably posted about this before, but oh, how the vitriol is stirring in my veins now, so it’s coming out.
Hey, Boss … fuck you. Go fuck yourself with a rusty screwdriver and actually fucking retire like you said you did three years ago. You know surprisingly little about me and what I do, but you, in your infinite wisdom, must rule our world with an iron fist. You’d spent the last several months looking for a victim when you decided that I’d make the perfect target in about January. And you have targeted, repeatedly. Now let’s forget for a minute that you live over a thousand miles away and still demand to be involved in every decision. Forget that we spend hours on every project trying to explain our work to you. Forget that we spend probably thousands of dollars a year overnighting the same information we just emailed to you five minutes ago because you don’t want to waste your own paper. That’s annoying. But I’m willing to overlook it.
Now, the line has not only been crossed, but it’s been burned, pissed on, and covered in lye. January … you decide that I deserve a bad annual review because of self-perceived mistakes in my work. Nevermind that the four bosses with whom I work on a daily basis vehemently defend me. You must have your way, and hey, whattaya know … you rank the highest. So you get your way.
April … my review is officially presented to me by two bosses who look like they’re at a funeral and keep apologizing to me. But wait …there’s more. You have decided that anyone who receives less than an “average” score automatically gets written up for disciplinary action! Good idea. What a coincidence that you make the rules and you make my score … Yay, I’m on fucking probation. Meanwhile, one of my bosses literally leaves my review and cries.
Now today … the icing on the cake. Once again, despite a week of protests from all of my managers, you’ve decided that I’ve made no progress. You have no other choice … you demote me. Yeah, that’s right, I don’t deserve the promotion I got over three years ago. Who cares that my manager still tells me that I perform well above the vast majority of people in my now-former position. Who cares that you have yet to provide any evidence that I am performing badly? You will tomorrow, my friend. HR and I are having a talk.
I think my favorite part of all this is that you are coming into town on Monday … and yet you don’t have the fucking balls to tell me this to my face. You make my manager - who you already know disagrees with your decision - do it days before you arrive. Go fuck yourself. Go fuck your egomaniacal, control freak, grudge-holding, idiotic, selfish, retarded fucking ass.
Tonight I sent out ten resumes. I’ll send out another ten tomorrow, if I can.
Know anyone who’s hiring?
