Which, my good sir, is why i declined to clarify whether i meant that metaphorically or rather more... literally.

Basically someone has always wanted their job back from their replacement & they 've fabricated things in order to get that person sacked. I found this out accidently so there's no way of proving it. Presumably, they'd do the same to anyone who challenges the allegations.

The whole situation is just nasty.



... & they're sacked. Which also means we've lost the only person who gave toss about health & safety.

so. you overpaid me. then you start recovering the money. starting with a deduction taken before tax. yay so i didn't get taxed on the money TWICE.

but now i've made a decision that allows you to get as much money in the quickest possible time, you take the payment AFTER tax. so i DO get taxed twice. BASTARDS. and now you're making me wait before even acknowledging my email? CHARMED I'M SURE. fucking great. stuffed out of £131 just this month.

My first impression of my new boss was that he's kind of a douche.

A full month later, that opinion remains unchanged.

UPDATE! - After firing my opposite number in LA, driving off my former boss, hiring a douche to be in charge of our department (who clearly doesn't even know what librarians do), it looks like my firm has decided to get rid of my coworker and interim manager (who was promoted out of our department two years ago, ended up getting stuck with an additional half a job when the LA position was cut, and then another entire job when my former boss left. She's working the positions of 2.5 people, and so they're firing her).

This marks the 5th time I've wanted to quit in a giant fit since my 5th month of pregnancy. Thank god Millie is behaving herself and this is a straightforward pregnancy (knock on wood) because work is making me fucking crazy.

Dear Co-Worker,

I can't figure out if you were drunk or the meds you are on just made you really freaky high, or what, but you should have taken the hint when the manager took you aside and told you to stop interrupting employee's work flow.

So then you com sit next to me, cause we're on the same team AND WON'T SHUT UP. You asked me more than once about some place in Tennessee cause you are going to get married there, then we talk about health insurance and you start complaining about being impotent cause of your meds and gesturing to your crotch? And then talking about how "you women judge us on performance there" and ask me what I think and then don't take the hint when I say "I'm really uncomfortable with this conversation".

So changing the conversation to talking about your ex, your current girlfriend, and how much you love women, ok.. but then saying you love it when women wear sundresses with nothing underneath them... even saying "Ya know, like you do for your husband"... dude, OVER THE LINE. I tried to just put my headphones in and ignore you, but that didn't work either. NOT COOL...

Lady,

Not to sound cliche, but that's sexual harrassment, and you don't have to take it. I strongly recommend reporting this formally RIGHT AWAY.

Good. I repeated crowgirls assessment on facebook but then noticed you didn't want any details on there so deleted it.

I'm glad you took formal action on this and didn't wait until it had become a complete snd utter monster.

My boss is insane. I just got a lecture about how my dashes are always too short. Complete with what was obviously supposed to be a guilt trip.

I'm a fully functioning, experienced journalist!

I got guilt tripped about the length of my dashes!

    Um, so just how long ARE dashes supposed to be?

    Maybe that's why Emily Dickinson lived like a hermit most of her life - she was fed up with people obsessing about the length of her dashes, & there were so many of them... Wink
