So…I knew this would happen.
I was furloughed for nine weeks due to Covid, right? And then I was called back to work.
Great! We all said. Now I have my job back and everything is hunky dory, right?
But the thing is, absolutely NOTHING was done during that nine weeks, so we lost nine weeks of my work. And now, what? People are freaking out because they are not getting their product? The stuff is late?? By nine weeks???
Surprise, surprise. Nobody remembers that they LAID ME OFF. Nobody remembers that NO ONE did my job for nine weeks so everything just sat like it was frozen in time. And now the time has come when everything I promised back at the end of February (at the sales meeting and trade show) would come to fruition. That’s the date everyone has in their heads because that’s what was written down. But my absence was not even noticed, so of course everything should be running smoothly now, right? We are an essential business, so we kept our motors running, right?
I love my job. That was sarcastic, but I am still very thankful that I have a job right now, I promise. It’s just not so simple anymore. It never was, but now moreso than ever.
I have much, much more to say, but I just wanted to get this out instead of letting it fester inside of me like it has for a couple of days.
Thanks for listening,
