I got fired... (made redundant sort of, but actually fired)
Ripley’s management have bestowed a great gift on to me. The gift of freedom. They got a team leader I liked to tell me I was out on my arse in the nicest possible way. They’re paying me a month’s wages from yesterday plus any untaken holiday money, they also said they’d give me an amazing reference. I don’t really trust them and wouldn’t be surprised if “complications” with my “pay” arise by the end of the month.
I feel good but incredibly scarred. My girlfriend thinks it’s good because now I can work on getting a new job, I unfortunately don’t have as much confidence in myself and I keep running through the worst case scenarios. When my girlfriend reads this she will get angry and shout “THAT’S EXACTLY THE KIND OF ATTITUDE THAT WILL GET YOU INTO THE WORST CASE SCENARIO, GET CONFIDENT STUPID!” And she’d be right.
I have mixed emotions about the whole thing… I gotta get productive, I gotta get confident, I gotta get out there! I’m going to look at myself in the mirror and say in a loud clear voice “I am He-Man, Master of the Universe (MU), I am in control, I am in control”
I’ll do all that shit tomorrow, for now I’m going to enjoy my day off and watch my recently purchased Jonathan Creek DVD boxset! YAY!
