More good news.....

Woo hoo I got a new job.

I don't have to work late nights any more, or week-ends and I get more money, woo hoo. I am especially pleased as the shop was involved in an armed robbery last week so I'm well out of it.

My boss is less pleased, I went and told him some-one would be ringing him for a reference. "Huh, thanks for telling me!"

Two hours later I got an e-mail saying that further to our conversation asking for a reference he considered that my notice, last shift to be 10th December (and don't let the door hit you on the butt.......)

Next day my new boss rungs and says my reference isn't all that awesome....after a bit of to and froing she offered me the job. Woo hoo but thanks for nothing old boss.

My present boss then has the gall to not speak to me for five days and then demand my resignation, as I hadn't offered it. I pointed out to him that he'd already told me when my last shift was. All went quiet and then today he asks me to work on a few days to help out.

Ok so what would you do?

I think that's pretty obvious - it is the run up to Christmas, you're maxed out with family stuff (not to mention #4) and your old boss has been a proper plonker. I think he needs to ask someone else to do him a favour, don't you?

Well done on getting a new job away from Attilah the Hun or is his last name Scrooge?

God, it so exciting getting a new job, better hours and better pay - you deserve it dear girl. You could rise above your boss's churlish behaviour and help him out as you are bigger than him or you could cut your losses and leave the arse to stew. Do you need the dosh? Which option makes you feel better?

Good luck with the decision!

Well done for your new job! Tell him to stick his few days up his a*se and get someone he thinks more highly of to do it. He seems to be closely entwined with his own petard. Then turn on your heel and walk slowly and happily into your future....

Definetely nay. Don't do it.

Remember his review of you to your new boss?

Just do your new job so well that you leave his stink behind you and amaze your new boss.

Congratulations from someone who found you thru the little black box
