You Know You Work for the Grinch When....

He is the only one not wishing everyone a Happy Holiday

Your department is the only one in the whole school without Christmas decorations

He throws a hissy fit when you attend the school Christmas party

He vows that you will not be attending the Christmas party next year

He calls the head of your department at home to chew him out for letting you go to the Christmas party even though he has already left for his Christmas vacation

He holes up in his office all week in order to avoid having to interact with his employees

He considers his Christmas duty fulfilled when he places a plate of goodies in the staff lounge his wife made after raiding it for all the good stuff.

He refuses to let you go home early when the entire fucking school has closed down because you are an essential employee, even though only 2 people have shown up to use your services the entire fucking week.

364 days of the year you are NOT an considered essential employee...just a sucker at the lower end of the echelon.

Now you know why Frogger is looking for a new job! And yes, she did get an interview at that place she was talking about a while ago (yippee!)

Things to be Happy About:

Knowing that you damn well better get the Ipod you asked for since you sister got a PDA for her birthday
Converse shoes
Feeling tipsy
Pasta being so cheap
Pretty Paper

I do hope that you are able to find a great place with even better people. Christmas does seem to bring the worst out in some people, but maybe it will bring the best out in you. You can have a great christmas with a great new job.

That doesn't sound like you work for a Grinch. He sounds like an asshole to me. Sometimes it only takes one jerk to make an otherwise good job unbearable. Good luck with your new opportunity.

the grinch had a heart of gold in the end. he overcame his selfishness to find love and the true meaning of joy, happiness, and togetherness. this guy's just a dick.

Hi Frogger,
Just remember to wear that brown suit when you go for a job interview. I don't see how ANYONE could turn you down when they
see you in that outfit. God, you look good enough to eat! May I?
Luv Ya.

Your boss sounds like a real asshat and cock knobber.

JudeL5: I certainly hope so.

sharpimage100: Unfortunately I won't know until the Spring...that's how long the process takes!

texascanadian05: Me too

im_curious_4u: Well 364 days of the year he is an asshole. Now, he's just a Grinch.

craptoast: Yeah, it's too bad my life isn't a children's story...I really do like the job otherwise.

singlequietone: Well, were they not all women I might...BTW it's black (everyone has called it everything from blue to brown, to purples....I guess it's true men really are color blind.)

tayninh2: I shall have to save that for the new year

Yeah, weak people grasping at petty acts of power make everyone's life hell. Good luck on the job search. (You know if people were a bit more politically active I bet this wouldn't be such a problem.)

Been there, glad not to be anymore!

Regardless,... Frogger, have a Merry Christmas...

He must not have received that Red Rider BB gun that he wanted as a kid.

Great! You're changing jobs and I was looking into registering... Ok, so I already have a degree, but I've heard you give great campus tours.

I posted a comment (with a question) to the union post, but was the only person who didn't get a response from you. Was that supposed to be a hint? Ouch.

Regardless, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas holiday and get that IPOD. Have a safe trip and come back soon. Here's hoping the new year brings a new boss as well.

Much love (and dirty thoughts),


PS - Thinking about a X-mas gift to myself of a gold membership. Whadya think? Wanna be on another guy's hotlist?

Interesting dilemma, Frogger. The job I'm leaving I have the opposite problem. My boss and co-workers are great, I have a lot fo freedom (I'm currently typing this at work because I don't have anything else to do, as well as downloading some video material for later because the connection is much faster here than at home) but I don't like what I do. I was trained for something else, and what I'm doing I find boring and remedial. So, I'm trading it for a job that pays a bit more, I'll be doning more of what I want to do, but my boss probably won't be as nice, and no more AdultFriendFinder at work.

Frogger, I forgot what a twit he is. I remember a lot of posts back that you were looking. I'm glad you're getting an interview. He's not a Grinch, because in the end. The Grinch is lovable, and he's going to be a twit forever. As Cartman would say, " I'll, kick him in the nuts." Nevermind, he might like that. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Frogger - In spite of the grinch, I'll think of Tiny Tim - God bless us; everyone" - chin up, Merry Christmas.

It is a shame there are people like that in this world. I would say grin and bare it (NO don't shoot him the moon). But this is way beyond anything I have had any experience with. Guess it is time to look for a position in another department.

Frogger, luv, what's his hard-on for the school holiday party? Aren't you considered faculty?

I know where you should go. Once you get there and see the campus, and the hills, and the gorge... you'll be willng to sign for half what you came in demanding.

I'll email you the link.

In other news, a somewhat political post over at my place today.

fishy7425: Sorry! I must have I will go back and answer
Having never been Gold I can't say...but what ever gives you a leg up as a man on this site...go for it!

NWMNman7: Tough one...Why is it that we never get everything we want in one package!!!

gnr8nrg: I think the dean has put a little bug in his ear because he actually let us off opposed to last year when he made us stay all day.

bullseyetou: Well I am going home tomorrow so things are already looking up.

trustno01: That is the current Plan A

VoodooGuru1: we are in between faculty and staff. Which means we get the worst of both worlds and none of the benefits of either. SIgh!
