Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

Recommended Posts

Morning all! 

 

I got a lot of little projects done yesterday; Wall mounted a TV in my bed room and replaced my single wall mounted monitor in my office with a dual screen mount. 

 

Another cold morning! Hurray! I say it like that cause I live in the south. It may be 90 degree one day... ::(:

I know right?!  That color quiz however, I could change my answers and get wolf... but all the other ones I can't even figure out how to get wolf. :down:

 

Maybe I'm not as wolfish as I think I am. 

 

Maybe I really am a Valkyrie.

Well, I got 2 new beers out of the open bar. One was "yup, that's a beer" 3/5
The other was "well, yeah, that's beer" 2.75/5. Food was good though!

 

GW... Yeah. Got offered jobs there twice. Glad I never took them up on it. 

 

Cookie swap today. I brought peanut butter cookies.

Maybe if that's 90 Kelvin. 90F and 90C are indistinguishably hot.

 

Ewwww.

Darnit got laid off yesterday! ::(:

 

I was asked to show up at the local offices in town when I cam back from site. My supervisor was there, and he didn't seem to be in his usual smiling mood. When I stepped into the small meeting room and see some that looked to be from Human Resources person

 

No reason given, but there was a wave of layoffs in another department several months ago, and my position (mobile fleet reliability engineer) was probably deemed not be absolutely necessary, or have a low ROI. Especially if you consider that our fixed equipment department already have three engineers that do the same job. So I may have become redundant. It's December, and it's the month where all senior management gather and plan and defend their team budgets.

 

I got a severance package that includes three months support with a career transition company (help to update resume, cover letter, practice interviews, job search, etc.). Since I was with the company for nearly the whole year, I am entitled to the full amount of the employee yearly bonus that we get in late February. I still have access to my company benefits until Dec.20th, so I better resolve all of those unclaimed medical bills.

 

I got the full support of my colleagues and they have no problem in having me put them down as references. They're already blaming the consultants (well one of them).

 

On the plus side (yes there is one), I *will* be home for Christmas. I was originally scheduled to work on Christmas. And I was able to cancel my original plane ticket and book another one. I'll also be able to see Star Wars ep.VIII in the first week instead of waiting until after Christmas. ::D:

 

Financially, I am quite secure. I could live as a hermit for the next decade without any worries.
