Hello all –
A quick note here just to say hey and give a quick wave. It doesn’t seem to make much sense to write about WoW since I have scarcely been in it since the 7th. Alas and At both got as far as level 81 last night, questing through Hyjal. I’ve not seen much, not done much and possibly will be one of the last people in the guild to hit the new level cap.
I will say I’ve enjoyed what I have seen thus far and it feels good to be gaining xp on the main again. Not to mention being engaged in about three rep grinds, all of which are fun for a change after the past few months of pirate-killing and Ogri’la daily-doing.
Real life is something of a bitch and I want to take a moment to bitch about it because I imagine someone out there might pat me on the head and say “There, there,” in a comforting sort of way. You see, I was supposed to be off work yesterday, today and tomorrow. I had it planned months in advance for obvious reasons.
Then work got in the way and my boss commanded that all hands be on deck for some pre-implementation weeklong workshop. Okay, fine, I cancel my plans. I can be a team player. Things went really wrong as far as the vendor being able to get to us in a timely fashion so my boss is reacting poorly, as though it’s the vendor’s fault that weather is generally uncooperative. On the heels of this, he finds out through the grapevine that At has been offered a job and accepted it.
So now he’s pissed at me. Because… because… he’ll have to interview people to fill my position and it’s inconvenient? I really don’t know what the deal is.
All I know is that suddenly this pre-implementation thing is now a place where I am persona non grata. But I still have to be at work. Because someone has to warm this chair up. And it would be unreasonable to allow me to have my vacation plans back because my boss just wouldn’t be able to work up to the same levels of pettiness that he is currently achieving.
I have a rawr and a sad and a burning desire to end my official letter of resignation with: “And you can take this job and MULCH it!”
