I started a new job last January with a fairly young company. Within just a few weeks, I realized this was a pretty good company to work for. They pay well, bennies are good, senior management is pretty decent, future looks secure, etc. I also found out that my partner was an ex-JW. I thought, "Wow! This is great! We'll have so much in common. I have a new friend." Little did I know that this man was a small-minded, selfish, rude, ass-hole of a human being. A complete disgrace to humanity if you ask me. I am a pretty happy, easy-going, good natured woman. But working with this man has made me rethink working with this company. (It probably wouldn't in any other instance, but he is SOOO far up my boss's butt, it isn't even funny. My boss thinks he walks on water! The schmoozing is enough to make you vomit. Blech. )
Anyway, I've quietly and admittedly complacently been looking for a new job. My resume is updated, I've discreetly spread the word to a few friends that I'm "looking". An acquaintence of mine that shares my office building came to me the other day. She handed me a business card and says, "My husband and I have started a side business with this company. They're looking for people if you're interested. I'd be happy to set up an appointment if you'd like." Since she really is a nice person and a hard worker, I thought what could one little interview hurt? I met them today at a local restaurant for lunch. After a few minutes into the conversation, I realized it was a NETWORK MARKETING SCHEME!!!! ARRRGGGGGHHHH! I feel duped. I'm just waiting for her to come up to me to ask how the meeting went and I don't know if I can keep from strangling this lying little beast!
"You wanna know how the meeting went?! I'll tell you how the meeting went..." *strangle-strangle-strangle*
Okay. I feel better now. Thank you for listening to me vent! I know, I know...I have issues I'm working on.
