More New Lows Than A Limbo Dancer

AMAZING! I tell you, it's almost heartening to see that life holds a few surprises for even a hardened campaigner such as myself.

I just gave one month's notice of my intention to resign from my job.

On the way back from the airport, I was told that in my January schedule I would have to work 6 hour days on both Saturday and Sunday, and have my days off during the week. (I would still be working split shifts during the week, by the way.)

Needless to say, I considered this unacceptable, and informed them of this.

It kind of snowballed from there.

Out of principal, I resigned -- if after working in this godforsaken frozen chunk of nowhere for over SEVEN years I can't get enough respect that they might at least ASK ME NICELY before doing something like this, it's time to walk.

The shitty part, of course, is that I resigned because of my awful schedule for January, but I still have to work my January schedule anyway with the month's notice.

Fuck them man. Someone with your life experience is bound to find something better. Start your own tutoring service or try an 'accent' class for those posh fuckers who already speak english. Then you can sit on your ass and get paid, thats what i call living! peace
ps the registration requirement SUCKS

ok, who's with me on this?

X, go back to the states, work on that masters, turn your stories into a screenplay and get it made into a movie?

like i said, who's with me in wanting this stuff to go to the big screen?

it's the blessing in a not so brilliant disguise that you've been waiting for man!

wow, good luck, man.

would you care to discuss how it snowballed when you informed them of your position?

Maybe it's time to resign if you still don't know the difference between "principle" and "principal"...

Interesting blog line - I hope that it works out for you.
