That comment can be read very diffferently than what was meant. :lol:

Definitely feel as if life is out to get me this weekend. Got given my marching orders at work yesterday (soon as I had finished working their Easter Sunday for them no less) and my cat was run over just outside my house in England - car didn't stop of course, blow smashed his pelvis and had a life of incontinence and no balance or the humane way out. Naturally we have chosen the later. God I loved that cat, never gets easier for me to accept the loss of a pet. Think I am going to cheer myself up with a bit of Saints Row or Minecraft. Anyone needs me, ill be in ma bunker.

Contract terminated: Probably a multitude of reasons why, which were not mentioned in the letter informing me I was to work there no longer. It totalled one sentence, with the words employment, terminated and as of 27th April - The German way; to the point.

Yeah I truly am sorry for my cat. I chose him from the cats home when he was small enough to fit inside one hand and now, bah. I feel shit.


All the bad news seems to clock in all at the same time, wondering what's next for the hat-trick. :(

Cheers! Yeah, Easter was more or less ruined before all that shit happened. Loss of job and death of a cat was the icing on the cake. I need to send an email in the morning to the manager asking for a bit more feedback from my dismissal so I have something to work on with my next job, going to be hard doing that without mentioning how much I thought his team leaders were fucking wankers, mini Hitlers etc. Honestly in 11 years of working have not encountered such appalling leadership. I fell out with one of them for doing more than I was asked to when we were quiet - so he'd rather what I was working on be left because well, he hadn't thought about giving me that task and I made him look bad. I often do that, against people that are bad at their jobs. They fucking deserve every bit. Hate the idea of going back to no cash, but not spending another second in that place is rather appealing.

Uncomfortable subject brought up by colleagues in casual conversation, hope they wouldn't ask me, pretended to ignore it but then they did. Squirmed, shared some painful childhood memories in the heat of the moment and that's my day ruined.

Please describe the managers reaction if you do describe them as mini-Hitlers. I can just imagine how well that is going to go down.

Trying to do some editing on my Papa's old piano music for his funeral. On top of everything else going on I've basically spent my night hunkered over my laptop on the floor in a state and crying at everything.
