The wheel in the sky keeps on turnin’

It seems that when one nice thing happens, something terrible has to happen right after that, then something good, and so on and so forth.  It’s an endless cycle.  Maybe it’s God’s way of keeping us from being too settled in…keeping us on our toes.  Either that or he loves playing practical jokes on us.

I was sitting in my office yesterday morning doing my usual dredging through the mountains of paperwork when our CPA (and basically my boss) walks in.  I usually don’t see her because she has a day job elsewhere and only comes by at night, so I was a little surprised to see her walk in yesterday morning.  She said she needed to talk to me.  Oh, shit.  That’s never a good thing to hear.

Indeed she had bad news.  Evidently things just weren’t working out and she needed to let me go.  Well, fuck a duck.  She didn’t even really tell me what I had done wrong.  Only that she needed someone with more experience.  Well shouldn’t she have thought about that before she hired me?  Plus I have 20 years experience.  How much more experience does she want?  I think she found someone else for the job.  Someone they know, if you know what I mean, and I was just a seat warmer.  Nepotism is a bitch boys and girls.

So now I’m unemployed again.  As soon as I got home I filed for my unemployment and started looking for another job.  I haven’t told Manwhore yet.  He was out with Witchy Poo and another friend distributing brochures for his new tour business.  I’m not looking forward to that conversation.  Maybe it won’t be too bad though.  Maybe he’ll show a little compassion and understanding since I didn’t really do anything to deserve being fired.  Hey, a girl can dream can’t she?  In the mean time I told my sister that I would try to hold off on telling him as long as possible.  She said to have a bag packed just in case.  LOL

The good news is that I just got a call about a job, and now I have an interview at 3:00 pm today.  Yay!  Wish me luck!

Happy humping!

How to get fired from a church

I was down visiting my parents Labor Day weekend 1995 and Pastor Cracker, my dad’s friend, was there visiting also.  I had taken copies of my résumé so that I could look for jobs there, but wasn’t too serious about it.  I was in college back in my hometown, and I also had a pretty good job there.

While the Preacher, my mom, Pastor Cracker and I were talking, Pastor Cracker mentioned that they were about to the point of needing a full-time secretary at his church.  The Preacher got all excited and told Pastor Cracker that I was an excellent secretary and might be interested.  Me, a church secretary? Don’t make me laugh.  Actually at that time I was still a “good girl” and hadn’t done much sowing of my wild oats yet.  Don’t worry.  That all changed in due time.

The thought of getting out of my hometown was enough to entice me into taking the job.  Up until then I had only lived outside of my hometown once, and that was when I was Continue reading
