Goodbye Sober Day

I have 2 things to say.

1) I have entered the last 26 days of employment with my current employer. I don’t necessarily see this as a bad thing, more like a good opportunity, but the reason for leaving is… unfortunate to say the least. My boss has chosen to move in-house development to a far-off land (outside of the USA). I don’t agree with the idea of moving a job outside of the USA when it is to replace a worker in the States. Creating new jobs overseas is not an issue with me – in fact, I welcome it. But not at the expense of someone in the USA (it’s ironic: Saving money at the expense of others. Me, in this case).

The good news is that I am close to finding my next employment residence. I have an interview next week with a company that could be a perfect match for me. I just hope that my programming knowledge doesn’t go into hiding during the interview. I have, in the past, choked while taking a development proficiency test. It wasn’t a pretty sight. Wish me luck…

2) I am not the only person who is losing their job. My brother‘s last day here was on Tuesday. I am sure that everything will be just fine for him. The thing that upsets me the most is that I won’t get to see him every day (of the work week). Sure we’ll still hang out, but we won’t have the convenience of chatting every day like we had here. Someday, though, I hope to be in a position to help him like he has helped me in the past. And then we can get our chat on.

  1. The sinking ship we were all on was like a rubber dingy with a hole in it being attacked by a giant squid while the optimistic captain shouted “Paddle harder!”
