I need a new job

1. On Friday night I finished work at 9pm. At which point my boss told me that I am a 'strange mix between being brilliant and pathetic'. This was because he asked me a question about a department that I couldn't answer because the department itself didn't know. Cheers.

2. I found out yesterday that one of my colleagues, who has cheerfully told me that he's marking time until retirement (he's in his 40s) and has no sense of doing things quickly, to wordcount or to deadline, is being considered for promotion. Is that really all you need to do - sit tight and be average? Why don't they teach you that at school?

I'm in a strange mood at the moment. I feel very hormonal, for no apparent reason. MC is getting the brunt of it and I can't really explain why. I think maybe we're spending too much time together, but that's not a good sign after 4 months is it? On Sunday we had far too much to drink and then attempted something.... experimental.... which didn't quite work out as planned. Maybe that's why I'm mad at him - I'm still in pain. Although it was all my idea and I was a very consenting adult, I hasten to add.

Sounds like an entertaining if surprising end to Sunday!

Don't worry about the 4 month thing, just take it easy, go out without him with some other friends and have a good time. While you're out you'll probably find that 1) you wish he was there so you could tell him something or point something out to him, but 2) it's OK that he's not there because you can tell him later nad have a laugh about it.

If that makes any sense...

And if you want a new job, go and get one. It's not like you're tied to that place by anything more than the fear of going for interviews ;)

It always amazes me how mediocrity seems to triumph in the workplace - or just a$$holes. But it's more important to hand on to your self-respect - keep at it :-)

Oh, and maybe you should try more lube next time ;-p
