Fast forward a few weeks and I’m out of here. I’ve already referred in my previous blog entry that my current job is like a life in Hell-mouth straight out of ‘Buffy the vampire slayer’ TV show, but soon all bad is to as and I’ve finally given my two weeks notice and now I feel sooo relieved. A better job (and by now I think that ANY job is better than this one) is still just an uncertain prospect in my future, which I’m sure is soon to come to life and get some material form, but I just could not stand staying here for any longer or I would be risking becoming one of those surly faces I’m facing all day long at the moment. Up until this experience I’ve thought that a promise of ‘friendly co-workers’ and ‘friendly working environment’ was just that – words to describe something obvious and a must-have for ANY company. Turns out, this small yet so essential part of good job might sometimes be missing, making in turn a good on paper job to something entirely different.
Some compromises work for the best, but if they don’t then they just don’t and it’s time to move on. And since I’m already feeling I’m becoming one of them – eternally unhappy, grumpy and dissatisfied co-workers of mine – it is better to move on than to dwell on the thought that all is bad, all is dark, managers are fools, etc. No job should be a battle for staying afloat and sane.
