I've had enough of scheming and messing around with jerks

Well I'm back to work. And you know what, it ain't half bad. Seeing as how I leave at noon and only work three days a week, I'd say it's downright satisfying. Plus, my kid is sleeping anyway so I don't miss too much, yay!

On the downside, the office terminated me without telling me. No paperwork, nada. I smell lawsuit, but who cares. Now that I'm a consultant dumb things don't bother me the way they used to.
Like the fact that there's a skylight in the office shower.
OR, the fact that there is an office shower...

Wait, I'm confused! Did they term you before you came back as a part-time consultant, or after?!

I hadn't seen your scoop on Paige til today. Kind of nuts, but not really?!

And an office shower? Hmmm, that's bizarre!

I'm really sorry to hear about that. Hopefully something better will turn up soon!

Do you like the Pet Shop Boys? I read your post title and instantly had the song "Opportunities" on my mind. :)

Without many details I wonder if this is a worthy fight for you. Offhand it seems it may be?

We have office showers at various buildings where I work. Few people use them and the rest of us just don't go near them. I figured those who use them would probably not care about a skylight.

The thing is, the toilet is right across from the shower and you can see right up into the skylight, actually it's more like a window. I keep wanting to print out a picture of one of the bosses and stick it up there so it looks like they're peering in.

alysha - I do love me some gay musical duos. Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, Hall & Oates... I kid, I kid...

Oh and Giao,
I reported for work and THEN they told me they had laid me off a month ago. So I signed on as a consultant, but they said, "this is the pay we are offering, take it or leave it." I decided to just take it, hey, I went to the trouble of showing up at 7am and getting a babysitter. What the hell.

I would speak to an attorney. Even with the slightly weakened "I signed anyway". What can it hurt? Business is business and you're a smart cookie.

I'd also put in the picture but maybe of a celeb like Ted Turner or an american idol.

I worked in an office where the men's & women's room was separated by a cinder block wall that didn't go all the way up - totally open. I got trapped in there one day with the most flatulent guy in the building. The tears in my eyes could be attributed to both laughing and odor....memories...

I gotta go order 2 series of Monty Python at Best Buy. Pretty good mega deal.
