So, many of you saw this on FB. And many of you heard my job drama on here. Well, I'm finally free!

I was under contract through the end of June, which couldn't come soon enough. I needed to give notice by the end of May if I wasn't renewing, and the same was true on their end. I wrote my letter in October, but was holding onto it for some reason. I guess I felt guilty bailing on a job when I had nothing else lined up. So they beat me to the punch.

My weasel chair asked me to meet him at 11:30 yesterday. I showed up, and he was nowhere to be seen. Instead, I was meeting with the head of HR, who told me they were not renewing my contract. I told her that was fine, because I was planning not to renew myself. I have to admit that I was a bit ticked that they got it done before I did. Kind of the "you can't break up with me because I'm breaking up with you" mentality. But whatever...I was free!

But then it got even better! She handed me a check for my pay from now through the end of June, and said I could turn in my keys and leave. I basically have 2 months off that I wasn't expecting, and it's PAID. I don't know what he told them to make them want to get rid of me so suddenly, but that just couldn't be beat. I had a hard time containing my excitement. I have to be the happiest fired person ever! LOL

So now I just need something in the fall...but I'm so relieved in the meantime. And it makes me feel better that the choice was made for me.

I am LOL at you being the happiest fired person!


Your boss sounds like a real piece of work, not even being in the room when they did it.
