This is a question Starting something you couldn't finish

Finnbar says: I used to know a guy who tattooed LOVE across his left knuckles, but didn't tattoo HATE on the other knuckles because he was right-handed and realised he couldn't finish. Ever run out of skills or inspiration halfway through a job?

It ain't over till it's done with a tie round the head and dancing like a knob.
Ironically enough, I have just finished something that I thought would be the end of me. Following on from this: www.b3ta.com/questions/nemesis/post712769

I resigned today and slapped a grievance on the table for the above mentioned bitch, all verified with witnesses and the union backing me up to the hilt. Thank you everyone who commented on the original post. You gave me the confidence to get the fuck out and the inside knowledge was paramount. You have saved me from dark days and hopefully the happy pills will not be required anymore. There has been days when I just could not move a muscle in my body to motivate myself and my GF has been suffering terribly too. I am going to take her out for a nice meal tonight and then bang the back teeth off her, haha.

I have been told that I do not need to work my 6 week notice and full pay plus hols is a given. Putting my tie around my head Rambo style and dancing and Irish jig may have been taking things to far. Today was one of the greatest days of my life.

Peace out my friends, you all have my deepest love and respect forever. Happy days here I come

Length-9 months of fucking hell

Good luck
I was in a similar situation (10 years ago almost exactly)...bitch of a manager who gave me no training and then bollocked me in front of the office for getting things wrong, impossible work targets, conflicting work goals (i.e. told to prioritise work and then bollocked for not completing less important work).

I lasted 5 months. I had a nightmare a couple of weeks ago that I was still there.

I would say welcome to my world
but you've been there and evidently you don't like it.

On the plus side I am planning on leaving now that I've worked long enough to get some cash behind me. But I'm waiting to slap that notice in at the right time.

Enjoy the moment (when you hand in your notice)
I had accrued almost half my yearly holiday, so my notice period was only 2 weeks.

Unfortunately I've just got the 4 weeks notice period
I've spent holiday's getting job interviews (lol) but haven't been too successful - next up is an interview on Tuesday(next week) so I'm really wanting to pull out all the stops to secure this one and I can finally GTF out of here.

Congrats btw, onwards and upwards.

Good for you. I had a similar but less awful scheming, pernickety horror as a supervisor a couple of years ago, that I simply wasn't able to walk away from as the job was part of my degree. There's nothing that compares to finally getting out of it and being yourself again.
EDIT: Shit, that's not just me then? I used to wake up occasionally for months thinking I had to go back there in the morning before remembering "Oh thank God, I'm not back in that lab". The place is shut now though, heh.

fuck yeah!
good on you mate, tie-head dancing is a perfect way to celebrate i reckon

Yay!
I'm really glad you're out of there, and I hope that the evil bitch gets a severe shafting and telling-off. If not fired.

An incurable
anal leakage disease would be justice in my opinion. What an afternoon. I know recruitment consultants are cunts who are out for themselves but if a recruitment consultant calls someone a "horrible cunt" you know the sort of person your dealing with.haha

Her dog died the other day allegedly. I think he threw himself in front of the bus just to be rid of her and her evil machinations.

Congrats!
Nothing good ever comes out of staying in a job with a bitch of a manager, let us know how the search for a new job goes!

Were you working as a recruiter then? I hope it wasn't Reed or Hayes, those guys are all a bunch of wankers!

If anal leakage is what she needs
maybe try slipping Alli the diet drug into her tea. I've heard horrible tales about that stuff.

Oh, and best wishes for the future!

Oh
that feeling is good.

Nice one!
One day you will look back at it and laugh.
