Well. Back to the drawing board

So, apparently, I am not suited to work in a company which micromanages employees.

Me: "Please, Ms. Supervisor, may I sign out to go to the restroom?"
Supervisor: "No, Diva, you cannot. There are too many calls waiting."
Me: "Actually, Ms Supervisor, you legally can't tell me no, and it's rather humiliating to have to ask."
Supervisor: "You seem to go to the restroom a lot. Try not to drink so much water."

It seems they think I don't respond well to being told what to do and when to do it. So, back to square one.

Will probably get to visit folks again, assuming there's anybody still out there.

We're out here, it's you who left us. But we still lurve you.

Dr, Dr, Mr. MD, I've returned from the land of the lost. Thank you, dear.

I hope you asked permission before you left. And hey, that was an awfully long restroom break.

Hey there! It's been a while!

Wow, that must've been one entertaining article.

Now don't be vanishing again.

It was wonderful. And really, the reason I was let go? Insubordination. Can you imagine? Moi?

I worked for a place like that. Lesson learned: never work for a place like that.

Isn't working these days just grand?
Of course, here in indy-anna, aside from wages going backwards and no raises for the little people, full time work where I am is now 32 hrs a week. And, people who have worked here for way longer than me, have lost some vacation time, because they didn't have enough hours, for vacation time they received for last year.....

Unbelievable and what a world.

I'm glad to have seen and been a part of the last of the good times, before I moved out here ; (

Cheers and here's positive thoughts to what lies ahead 4 U!

I am really shocked that there are workplaces that enforce such ridiculous restrictions. Perhaps a little pee pee puddle under your chair would have gotten the point across. Jerks. I hope you find a job that really suits you, divajood. Best of luck and keep posting!!!
