The End of an Era...

Got my payslip this morning... tried to get payslips for the rest of my permanent staff... got told, "I've given them to Ilkay."... remembered that I'm not their manager anymore.

That's it... I have no permanent staff reporting in to me now.

The end of an era, and the start of what looks to be a continual flow of, "Oh look what the new manager can do. Why couldn't you do that?" etc etc

Do I care?? I should, but I just can't be arsed. Time to move on, I suppose :-)

I still have the pang of no longer being involved in a department that I virtually built up, but...

I have my job, the remainder of my department, the two projects that I'm working on, and progression in 6 months time into a department that I really want to be in.

Am I happy?

You bet your fur!!!!

Update on "certain member of staff"

"Certain member of staff" called in sick today. Justin said, "Not again! It's always Mondays!"

I stopped in my tracks... and realised that he was spot on.

I contacted the employment agency and asked for clarification of sick leave... lo and behold, "Certain" was off on more Mondays that not!!! They are not happy with him.

Funnily enough, nor am I.

We have a theory that (to fuel his necessity to "play away from home") he goes away at the weekends to be with his other women. And then doesn't come back on Monday morning.

Sound suspect to you??



For historical information on this, read this thread.

The end of yet another day!

Well, it\'s been a good day, all things considered.

  • I\'ve just released the latest version of pocketlj, my LiveJournal client for Avantgo (Palm/PocketPC)
  • I\'ve just finished watching the Bond film
  • I\'m just about to snuggle up with my own personal teddy bear

What more could I ask for? :-)
