Well, I knew it was bound to happen sooner or later. You get into a call center where they “bulk up” and you run into lots of really interesting and neat people, and then once the staffing gets “comfortable”, they start finding ways of turning people over and mowing over the rest with a fine-grade woodchipper. I guess I was lucky to find lots of people at my last call center that I actually maintained contact with after leaving it, but not having much luck here……..here it’s all casual acquaintances, and hardly ever see anyone outside the workplace, which kinda sucks. I enjoy making friends, and up here it’s a bit dodgy anymore.
No I’m NOT asking for any sympathy here.
At least next year my family has a shot at making a really nice trip to the UK, which will be a real boost to the ol’ morale. It’s hard to stay positive in a job where you see people getting shafted or frustrated to the point of leaving, but unless something really good comes along that’s SOLID, I don’t have much choice. I’m not single anymore, so I can’t just up sticks and relocate like I used to. It’s just not that simple anymore. *HUGE SIGH* It’d be nice if it was that easy……I know I’d be back in Denver or the OC in a heartbeat, but as you know…..it’s not quite that simple anymore. The best I can hope for is to just being able to keep ducking under the radar and hope eventually things even themselves out.
Now if I just don’t turn purple before then……..then I’ll be OK 🙂
