I have the urge to choke someone, right now. Better yet, bit somebody’s head off! If it wasn’t a crime, I’d probably do it in a quick second with matching double slaps and a big kick on the butt. I tried to call in sick this morning, and was given serious attitude by my boss. Just one day off, and they couldn’t give me that. Grrrrr!
Moving on with the story, I dragged myself to work with a stiff neck and some hot packs to help lessen the pain. On the way to the office, I phoned my friend, Charles, at Ernst and Young. I maybe acting on impulse, but it maybe time to delve into new territories. So, I inquired if the job offer was still open for negotiation. The position was for a Senior Auditor, may require some traveling and off site assignments. But I am seriously contemplating moving forth. The fact that I’m doing a two-men job was unfair enough (without wage increase), but depriving me of my right is another. I could quit my job straightaway (and I thought that earlier), but my financial obligations have to come first. They’re not going anywhere and they can’t wait either. For now, I need to suck it up and repeat these words over and over — patience and bills!
Anyhow, I’ll try to keep my cool for now. Practice the virtue of tolerance. Gulp a huge glass of ice tea and then watch reruns of Sex in the City.
