Dept. of Wow, Long Time, No Post

I Still Exist, Part Deux

I note that in March, I've been able to post only on the weekends, and not much at that point. I am truly eaten up by my work, since my new boss is precisely the humorless micro-managing anal-retentive not-quite-nightmare I'd been afraid he would be. But, apart from one point this past week where I was almost in tears, I've survived. Only 30 more months! Yay!

But I do still exist. And I may even have, at some point, something more interesting to say than various iterations of "I hate my boss."

It's okay to say "I hate my boss" as many times as you need to. That's what we're here for. : )

God only knows, most of my posts were some variation on "I hate my boss" during the 11 years I was working for Former Dean Lady (well, I only joined LJ in 2010, so it was more like 5 years, but you get the picture). So, rant away!

And glad I am to have someplace to rant. I just want to be able to do something other than rant. Looking for a few soft, fluffy feelings and things of note - after all, those things are good for me, and less annoying for others. Heh ....

Well, дрянь. I wish I could say or do anything more than say "I'm sorry" and feel really pissed off on your behalf. At least... I don't know if Ferro's departure would make much difference as far as budgets and hiring and working conditions, but at least I feel better than you and Jennifer and others won't have him as a boss.

(Based on what I heard back when I was still stringing for Pioneer Press, and after, I'm not really surprised... But reading all the details in the Fortune piece was still a pretty disgusting

Thanks - I'm sure you've read my later post outlining all of the delightful news about Ferro, and trying to give it at least a bit of a timeline context. I don't know whether his departure (which really isn't a departure, since I think he's still on the board, just not it's chair) will change much for us. But I do like to indulge in some schadenfreude.

Dude. Scream it if you have to. All of us have had the worst of the worst (in varying degrees), so you would be in sympathetic company. Hang in there, m'love...

*HUGS*

Trying to do just that, my dear. We'll see if I'm successful.
