Today has been Flashback to Wilco Day. First was a call from Unemployment, telling me that they’d talked to my old boss this morning and he pretty much said I sucked. History of underperformance. Odd, since I’d only had one write-up in a year for underperformance, and it was a week before I got fired.
Anyway, I chatted with the lovely Jessica for a while, and after I was done with that I made that pretty picture seen above, intending to use it in a blog post (this one, in fact).
Something changed though – as I was posting, I got an email from an employee at the place I was employed at – the bossman that fired me? He just got fired by HIS bossman.
I want to say, damn near instant karma. He badmouthed me to unemployment, now he’s going to have to convince them that HE deserves it. HA.
Now, this leaves me in a position where I’m not sure what to do. I had said that I’d love to go back to my job there, if only bossman and tweety weren’t there – now bossman is gone. Tweety has my job though.
So I’m thinking…maybe I’ll write an email to the bossman’s bossman. How to say it though…”now that the cause of my termination has been eliminated, howsabout I come back and try to repair whatever damage has been done since I left?”
I’d better think on this.
