Well Ya'll I Got a New Job!

Thanks be to God, I got a new job.  Now I am not going to throw my present employers under the bus but this job was really causing me stress and I have been ready for something else.  I have been looking for another job for a really long time.  It is with the same employer just a different department and they seem genuinely glad to have me.  Now that is something that I don't feel with my current position.  For example:  true story-back a few months ago I had bronchitis with a lingering cough.  One day my VP asked my what my prognosis was, what was I doing about it because I was disturbing him.  I go to my desk and talk to manager.  We both go back to my VP.  I tell him that his remarks hurt me and he said that I was right, he was sorry but...............I was disruptive to the entire floor. He also asked me if I inherited this problem.  Really?  I was like, well I did 2 weeks in Texas Children's Hospital in intensive care when I stopped breathing and my parents found me blue. There is probably 40-50 people on my floor.  I asked my manager who sits right beside me if I was disruptive to the department and she said no. So we really didn't come to a conclusion.  And at this time, so many people were sick that we all were coughing, not just me.  And he didn't say anything to the others.  Now I know, you may be thinking just get over it and now I am but at the time, this really made me angry.  I couldn't help being sick and if I wasn't causing my direct coworkers any problems I didn't see how I would be causing him problems especially with him all the way at the end of the floor.  Something didn't add up.  But for me, that was just the last straw.

So I start in August.  I look forward to this new adventure but I know I will also be anxious because I mean who really likes to feel like a fish out of water.  But I hope that feeling won't last long.

  1. Good for you! BTW-an employer has no right to inquire about your medical history. HERPA laws forbid it! Grrr

    1. that's what I thought. I did tell him that I wasn't contagious and that calling in sick would be much more disruptive to the work flow since someone else would have to do my work.

  2. Your V.P. sounds like a real piece of work. Sounds like something my kids might say to one another.

  3. Oh, and best of luck with the new position. What field are you in?

  4. Congratulations!!! Change is good. I wish you all the best.

  5. Congratulations! Hopefully this will be much more enjoyable for you, and there will not be that kind of stress!

  6. He sounds like a germa-phobe jerk-o. I had that same thing. Got it before Christmas and didn't stop coughing completely until March! He would have had fun with me, huh?
