  1. vent, riley. this is your safe place. though the increased size in the font scared me a bit. it made you sound really upset.

    you should do some stealth recon with your ninja skills and find out what’s going on. sounds like you might have an advocate… or the company is failing and needs all the cheap help it can get.

    or, you might turn out like ryan from “the office” and end up at corporate. he was a temp too, you know.

  2. “I do the bare minimum”
    Well there you have it.

    Speaking as a former middle-management-type person, going through résumés, temp agencies, interviews and training was a colossal pain in the ass and got in the way of the ‘real’ work I had to do. So, when I had an employee who did adequate work, chances are they’d keep their job; smart-alecky remarks and tardiness notwithstanding.

    And reprimands were mostly for show cause I had a boss of my own who sometimes hovered in order to see what kind of ship I was running. Afterwards, I would go over to that employee and tell him: “Go ahead and take as many pencils home as you want, I don’t really give a crap!”

    Hated that job. So glad I don’t have to do that anymore. Now I have a fun job where I can take time in the middle of the afternoon and read fan fiction. Cue segue.

    I just read the latest chapter of Inamorata (very good as usual)but is that ass-kicking coming anytime soon I’m champing at the bit here 🙂

  3. I fixed the font, and now your comment looks completely unprovoked, which is funny.

    Uh, no intention of going to corporate, thanks. Or going corporate. In fact, let’s keep corporate out of all further conversations. It’s scary.

    So, I have been moved for show. That does make sense. My boss did come over later in the day and ask if I liked my new desk. I think that’s kind of funny, because it’s the exact same cubicle and the exact same desk. Literally, the only difference is the location. I just have to make sure I don’t walk the wrong direction when returning from the restroom.

    Heh, office supply klepto. I bet you have a whole drawer full of them.
