Black Friday

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

hugs to Mr Blast...

been there, and didn't keep a diary.
i was told that i couldn't be the office manager as i was probably going to have babies. they brought in a tosspot less qualified than me to do it, and had to sack him after 6 months for incompetence. I was the only f**king other admin person there!!!!
My word against the Partner's. no contest.

my support maybe unspoken...but it's always here
Dim, through the misty panes and thick green light,
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.

How badly do you need this job James? As I understand it, you're young(ish) free and single. Give them the finger and go catch some rays in Sanzibar.
And you know that she's half crazy but that's why you want to be there.

What sort of business is it? Concerned with bad press, public opinion, etc? Bottom line:

Sell the information to their competitors :wink:

Good luck. I've seriously fecked-over a few companies who've shafted me in business. And, yes, if they're dodgy, their competitors will pay for your info, sometimes. Gloriously rewarding activity. The bigger they are, the harder they fall! :D

Hi James,

I've only discovered this thread now and just wanted to let you know that I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and that I wish you all the power and confidence you need to get through this.

The only advice I can give you is to stay as cold-blooded as possible. To watch what they do like from a outsiders point of view. It has nothing to do with you, and all to do with them. Bad managers and working collegues who have little perspectives for the future often need a scapegoat to have something they can put down. This has nothing to do with your qualities.

You've got legal help and emotional support on this forum, so you have people who keep your back protected while you face what's coming your way.

And one last thing: such dreadful ends often lead to something better. My mother was sacked at the tender age of 57, when nobody ever is meant to find a job again. But she did, and the new job was far better.

Sometimes the best things are given birth by bad things. And a dreadful ennd usually is better than a never ending dread.

All the best,

Eva.
Celebrations done, more to come, hopefully.

Meanwhile: I'm still confused but on a higher level... :-)
