My meeting with "the Bobs" got moved up to 11
As you may know I got a new job last week and gave my notice at this one. Next Friday is my last day.
http://journals.democraticunderground.com/underpants/10...

So in my exit interview I let loose with everything that I know and feel is wrong with my department, mainly with the management of it.

Yesterday I get a call that the chief main head boss would like to have a meeting with me and the person to whom I relayed all this information.

It was set for 2 but they moved it up to 11. There is a chance that they are going to make a counter offer and ask me to stay on in an oversight capacity. An internal auditor basically. Or I could be completely wrong and they are going to try to see if anyone else has this information OR they might just want to talk about it.

We'll see. It should be quite fun.

I wish you well in your new job! :hug: It's been fun hearing about your daughter and other fun times.

It's nice when you can find a cool way to let the mgmt. in the position you are leaving that there are issues they need to address!


on edit, I never noticed that the cranky head doc from Scrubs was in the Office Space movie- I am obviously not an Office Space obsessor. ;)

10. Well
there SHOULD be a program in place to report such things. I hear that there is a policy but it clearly hadn't been communicated but,I am told, that it will be.

14. Richardo, you magnificent bastard! As a matter of fact, I do have information on John C. McGinley.
For one, he has a son with Down Syndrome. Also, he just got married, which is good news for him and not so good news for me. :(

I think that's the extent of my knowledge about him. The data base is not nearly as big as the one for Dan Blocker! :D

17. is he in that wild WPA f/ lefty fiilm that CUsack and his sister were in?
can't remember the name

I like him even more if he's buddies with CUsack. Cusack is one of my favorite actors... for his politics, etc.

20. mine went back on the 4th of Sept/
then he was off yesterday for Rosh Hashannah.

Work is a little slow and I should be doing house stuff or writing that book I keep meaning to write.... (he he) I've settled instead for playing bass with some folks on the weekends.


Do anything cool this summer? We went to San Francisco for a week before school started... I love that place. Wish I were rich so I could live there.

21. I did not do anything this summer, other than lay around the house.
Glad you got to San Fran, I've never been but I'm going to have to get there someday. Maybe tour the wine country, too! :beer:

22. we rode on a catamaran in the bay, plus a few ferry tours
my kid loved it. It's a beautiful city.

Laying around the house is good. I had all these plans to work on the kitchen, etc. Oh well. ;)
