It's all somewhat okay

When the headmaster sat me down and talked to me in a very quite tone....almost like he wanted to calm me down before I took a hatchet to his head. He said "Joan, we need to know what you want." You are a very important part to our company. I,in turn said "I didn't know I had a choice." I said, "you start first." Because I wanted to the the bottom line before I made any choices.

The ball was in his court.

In his monotone voice, he agreed and rambled on for ten minutes telling me how great I am, and what a good employee I am (was), and tried to schmooze me. And then he told me that I will be paid for two months salary after they let me go as is the company policy. Then he said that I would probably be let go at the end of February.

I told him I was not happy with that. Because my boss told me I would be let go at the end of April... and I have everything set up to go from that date forward. With my pension plans etc. He almost jumped off his chair..I guess my boss didn't tell him that.

Then,in his monotone voice....he said " no problem Joan" ...we are here to help you through this blah blah da blah

Fuck off you are. I said in my head.

I already knew he was looking for February. Anyway, that's the end of it.

So that's where this pile of bullshit lays...in my flower bed where new flowers will florish next spring and I will have the time to take care of them.

Let's get it on. I'm ready.

I'm sorry that you're losing your job earlier than expected Joan. Hopefully something bright shiney and new is on the horizon. :)

When he said "no problem" did that mean you'll stay thru April, or Feb? I'm confused, but what's new? I wish you well no matter the outcome, Joan. (((hugs)))

Hope all works out. At least you took control of the "talk" from the get go. I wish the result was more of what you wanted.

Poolie said...

Good call to force him to make the first move. So are you staying through April then?

judemiller1 said...

Yeah--I'm confused too--per normal. Do you get to work through April?

Hey--too months salary isn't too bad a "get the hell out" gift. I only got two weeks.

Hi Joan,
I am SO sorry for this crappy news right before Christmas; however, I love your attitude. You're looking forward already - to Spring and your new life.Best wishes from another Joan.

Sorry, I was unclear. I will be leaving at the end of April.

The end of April will be just right for planning those flower beds. Way to go in keeping him straight!
