Remember that crunch time that began this summer and I said, “Oh, in a few months, it will all be worked out. It’s just layoffs”? Remember that? Yeah, Imanidiot. The workload has only increased and my bossman says that I’ve handled the transition so well, that he feels confident he can hold off on disbursing the work since there isn’t money for hiring anyway. Oh, gee, such great validation. And this after he announced (yes, I know the supervisor over him and the supervisor over him and the supervisor over him yada yada yada are to blame here, but it soothes me to blame my bossman) there wouldn’t be bonuses this year. Which was shortly after announcing that only some employees would be getting a pay increase.
I’d like to note here, that of those increased pays, oh…. ALL OF THEM are upper management and not simple work mules like me. The saving grace would be that my bossman didn’t get a pay raise either. So he tells me. When I went in to protest the work without the pay. But, and no I didn’t reason this out for him, my bossman doesn’t actually do work. I do his work. A flow chart of the study might assist upper management in understanding that I’d settle for an increase of half my bossman’s wages and they could fire him, thus saving much needed money and keeping me happy. Wonder if they’d go for that.
As it is, I have a working weekend ahead of me. *sob* Just let me write, people. And maybe destroy all ePirates so they quite ripping off my earnings. Epirates suck. So does corporate America.
