RIP jb's career at SCOT DHS/CIS 9/29/2003 - 3/23/2007


I took a shitty second shift government clerk job in 2003 to get myself back on my feet after a year of depression & unemployment- 6 months later I switched to a ridiculously early first shift summer 2004 so I would have my nights off to play music- back then I figured after awhile I would get used to the early mornings and maybe even learn to like my job- but after awhile I fell into the familiar trap of getting to used to the money, which is pretty good (thats how these shit jobs get ya) & also finding a new job is a pain in the ass- so I stuck it out month after month even though I hated it and most the people- getting more and more worn out & angry & annoyed & depressed- but finally, just at the right moment, the opportunity I was looking for allowing me to quit on my own terms with respect & admiration presented itself & I jumped at it. Fuck yeah! So, at 2.30 tomorrow afternoon I am done with it. I just hope that I never get myself in the situation again where I need to take the first job that presents itself just to get by...

Much congratulations JB--it's incredibly important to know when to get out of a job that doesn't fulfill you & unfortunately a lot of people lack the ability or courage to do so.

I'm planning on giving my two weeks next Friday! I confirmed that I was making the right decision when I filled out my time sheet this morning and I had logged 66 hours. No comp time. No overtime pay. F that S.
