Buh-bye

Over the past seven years, I have accepted the fact that there will always be some coworkers in my office that I simply will not like. Try as I might, I won’t be able to get along with, or even tolerate some people. It’s not my 7th birthday party anymore; I don’t have to get along with everybody. I know that these people will linger, and I will have to deal with them for as long as they or I remain with the company.

But sometimes…sometimes wishes come true!

Being married to an IT guy, I know that when you see the office IT guy hauling off someone’s CPU- while leaving the monitor and keyboard behind- it’s usually not a good sign for that person. I almost didn't believe it when I saw whose machine was getting removed this morning.

Ho-bag is no more. The fact that this makes me so damned happy is just another reason I’m going to hell in a pretty basket.

I feel vindicated that someone in the upper echelons didn’t fall for the Giggle n’ Jiggle routine she was working. Score one for us brainy girls. Every now and then, when I’m sure that the industry is every bit as bad as I think it is, someone will prove me wrong- and I’ve been overdue for some proof lately.

I'm goin in.
The job I have, if I want it long-term is part time.
I figure I'll pester the big hoo-has in AIA to see what is going on, and see if I can find a place to fit.

Looking at the student blog section of archinet, and seeing the frat boy dunces that they feature for Tech makes me wonder if I should mention where I'm from when looking.
