I'm a jobless hobo...

I don't normally use this space for whining or complaining about things. I feel the need to do so now only so that I don't have to tell 8 different people 8 different times...

As of next Thursday I will be again unemployed. I can't believe it, that's gotta be the shortest duration of any job ever!! I bet it makes a record (well, a second place record anyway... there was that ONE day we don't talk about at wendies back in college.. ... ..). Yes it's true, the Tax folks are apparently just about all caught up and "see the light at the end of the tunnel" so I have been told that the 29th is to be my last day working. I almost cried, not because I expected to work there forever but because I'd actually adjusted to it. I LIKED this job, I LIKED the people, and I actually kinda liked the time spend absolutely by myself in my own little world. Sitting in a cubical typing away, listening to some Sara Brightman, just being alone for 5 solid hours woohoo. And I was good at it too *sigh*

The whiniest part is that I tend to do the budget a whole month in advance (it's squeaky tight but all the bills and rent get paid AND we get fed so it works) and now there is one week and one day I'll be missing that I had counted on for pay, 250$!!, and that will really hurt!! I was SURE I'd be working there till the last possible day before the Man took his two Navy two weeks in May. I was determined that when he got back if they still had temps I'd be going back.

I guess it makes sense, I mean how backed up would they need to be to keep temps on through May? Seriously I should have expected it, I was just optimistically thinking we'd get through the first week of May before they were done with us. *woeful sigh* I still have three days left to work next week, I'm really really hoping they don't move even faster then they think they will, I really will cry if we miss any more paying days of work next week.

If you like it there you've probably been making a positive impression on the folks you work for, so remember to ask your supervisor if you can use her/him as a reference when applying for your next job.
And (though I'm sure you've thought of this already) also ask about the when of likely future temp and permanent openings, since your move to the east may not happen as soon as "the man" hopes it would.
(doncha just love having a bossy ma?)

I ditto. :D Wish your easterly move was tomorrow, though. And I wish that you had the 29th off so we could do dinner. What can I do for ya?
