Relieved and pissed

Well, I was right. They were setting me up to be fired. The smoke test sandbag was what did it? I complained about it, the QA idiots started double teaming me, I told one guy to mind his own business, he refused, I told him to fuck off.

I knew they were going to try this kind of crap when they hired *two* younger male sysadmins, permanent, to "help" me. I figured they'd wait until it was all delivered, but I guess they thought code freeze was good enough. They don't want contractors, especially ones who are expensive, unwilling to take a massive pay cut to go permanent (like 30%), and unwilling to do stupid things just because some manager feels that it would be nice.

I'm relieved. No more micromanaging, no more technical stupidity, no more whiny arrogant pricks. I have a couple months worth of savings, and I've already got feelers out. Hell, I'm surprised I lasted this long.

Awww Sweetie, I'm sorry. Sysadmin eh. I will look here even though I know you would not likely consider it. Jacksonville or Orlando wouldn't be too bad and Daytona and many other places now have SCA and wiccan folk all over. The weather is comparable to San Jose, but the bad thing is no cash sickness for disability. *grin* Oh well, it would be nice to have you nearby, and I understand your desire to stay in the Bay Area. I just hope you will not limit yourself. Love you, whatever you decide to do. Hey, Ms. Boo was 39 today and Petey Bow-wow is there with the Nancy.

Nonetheless, I am sad to hear it. I didn't see that coming. Damn.

And one of those two you are reckoning may not last long himself?

May you find something better within the week.

I'm sorry to hear it. :-( Stupidity reigns in my office, too; I think they're trying to force the entire web group (my unit) to quit, but they're damned well going to fire me if they want to be rid of me. (I can't collect unemployment otherwise. ;-))

I sympathize with your relief in not having to deal with nitwits anymore. Hope you find something else soon!

*hug* Good luck finding the next one, and may it be more fun and perhaps even better paying.
