short musings

Posted: December 4, 2009 in bla bla bla, damdoumization, thoughts

* We had a long holiday for Eid and National Day, and i took the 2 days in between off so I can have the week off. I havent had a decent holiday since ever! (ever being December 07) the only days i left for a while were when I went to finish up official paper works after dad passed and to get mom to stay with us. and that was only a short period, spent in official offices in Jordan, and trust me, if you havent been there yourself, its not fun! I am actually dreading going back on Sunday! I do not know what bad karma I am paying for, but I havent had a proper decent boss for a while now. 3 years for crying out loud. what could I have possibly done wrong in this lifetime, or past ones if existed, to deserve this? oh well.. il7amdila (thank God). I just hope I can make an internal transfer to another department, there are a few openings after the bank laid off half the staff! I just hope my current boss doesnt play child of Satan on me and grants me a smooth move. *fingers and toes crossed*

* and here is something i wrote 2 days back, i havent written in a while, but suddenly got inspired.

Toxic Friends..

Waltz was never my favorite dance
Going around in circles, yet still at stance..
Masquerading back and forth with detriment
Repeatedly telling me it’s not entirely meant
Your theory of friendship is so distorted
Making me feel confused and contorted
It’s hard to let go but I cannot stay..
Till you finally realize my worth one day
I wish you let me know what’s on your mind
So I can make a decision and never look behind..

    I will pray for your speedy relocation to a better position with a better boss. There is no short supply of idiots in managerial positions, sadly. I have been blessed to have a wonderful boss for 15 years. Many people are not so lucky.

    Excellent poem, and how very true! So many toxic people, so little time to throw them overboard. Their crazy-making behavior is best isolated and shunned, so that the only crazy they make is themselves.

      Thanks Marv, and you’re spot on. it seems like a prerequisite for most bosses to be mean/rude/arrogant/and idiotic :S

    See this title works much better šŸ˜‰

    Hope you get the transfer you’re seeking and hope you get along with your new boss.

    Oh how I wished to relocate internally. Sadly they didn’t let me, cuz I work on projects, not in a “department”. But when I relocated out of the job, it was the best thing ever not to wake up to the phone calls!

    • Verbal Alchemy says:

      well i hope things turn out to the best with me, 2oul ameen lashuf šŸ˜› coz i am not really channeling negativity or stress very well lateley, im supposed to minimize them, il7amdila.
