Quit my job and it felt great

October 7th, 2005, 09:45 PM
Hey,well i had enough of my boss throwing me under the bus to protect her dealers[i am in the car business] so i quit,got a job offer for 2.00 an hour more top of what i was making, it is .06 miles from my house i could walk there,so what is next a dog of course,gonna adopt one from the hurricane,or one form the county,i will be able ot go home for lunch to walk him or her....Not gonna do that til novemeber,they are not up for adoption til then..So that is what i have been up to......

Congratulations!! But umm is it legal to pay you $2/hr??

October 7th, 2005, 09:58 PM
Hey Congrats Heidiho! I do hope your making more than two bucks an hour though LOL!!!! HMM did you mean two bucks more an hour...hope so. Can't wait to see your new doggy!

LOL I got $3.50 an hour working my a** off in an upscale Montreal kennel and I thought that was bad! $2! Oh, wait, that's American. So it's like $40 Canadian... Ok, the currency jokes aren't as funny anymore since we caught up. :o

Congrats, I too am looking for a new job closer to home, hopefully I will luck out before the winter road conditions hit.

Thank u thank u thank u,oops i meant i am getting 2.00 more dollars an hour on top of what i was making......My boss was doing some shady stuff for her favorite dealers and when i would try and make them pay there cars when they were od,i would get called in her office and get a serious but chewing and i ahd enough................. :thumbs up

I had a shady boss too. The manager of my work got caught doing something illegal in the bathroom with two of the specialists that worked there. He was fired immediately and apparently escorted out of the building. Scandel.

That's great Heidi,Congrats :thumbs up
I was a little taken aback by the $2/hour,but realized it was a typo :D
It will be great if you can get a dog again,but be careful choosing,you don't want to go through the same thing as with your Shepard-pup.
A needy Katrina dog would be great,I am sure there are thousands of them!

October 8th, 2005, 11:32 AM
Yeah that was a typo,he offered 2.00 on top of what i was getting paid at the other auction,NO,my biggest fear is what happend with my gsd,i could not go through that again,very heartbreakin,i do want a Katrina dog,they dont go up for adoption til November which is good timing for me,and the job is half a block from my house so i could go home for lunch,so perfect ,i guess everything does happen for a reason.....Thank u

As a classic typoIST, I did get that you were going to make $2 more an hr. Congrats!!! Can't wait for pix of the new pooch!! btw, how is your health? PM me if you don't want to answer that here or not at all if it is too provate - I was thinking back to those tests- never found out how they went.

October 8th, 2005, 03:00 PM
Inever took the mri,got there sat in it and just to claustraphobic,so i left,i feel fine,doctor did not think i had it,but just wanted to be 100% sure,so until something changes i am not gonna finish all the tests.Thanks for asking.Yeah my bosss would hold checks release cars and say they sold but they didnt,only for her chosen few,then when i would try and collect money they owed she would get mad at me,i just had enough of her crap....I cannot wait to get a dog.I am holding out for a Katrina dog which will be in november,you guys will be the first to see him or her.. :thumbs up

Congrats, Heidi! I'm both happy for you and jealous (I spend my mornings watching my train come in, wondering if today I should get on the train, or in front of the train.)

October 10th, 2005, 04:02 PM
Oh no Schwinn,don't say that,hope you were just joking :confused:
Then again,we all have those kind of days,ever now and then!

October 10th, 2005, 04:05 PM
Glad for you Heidi Ho.

I have to be careful when I post my news about Heidi Ho Ho, that folks dont get confused (my new semi-paralized doxie, Heidi Ho Ho)

Schwinn, I know what you mean. I would go and lay down infront of the morning rush hour traffic, but of course, it is not moving !!!!

I had a 4 day anxiety attack before coming back to work this week after sick leave. I SO wanted to ask my boss to fire me.

Jumping out the window does not work, as I am on the second floor of a house. If it was not for that doggie breath waiting for me when I get home from work ...........

Anyways Heidi, glad things are improving for you :thumbs up

Thanks,I truly love gsd,but i did have a rottweiler years ago when i lived in Oregon and i love them also and that is where my gut is leading me,my neighborhood is not the best so it will be a rott or gsd.
