After the announcement that my department was being restructured and my position eliminated, I have been less than motivated to do anything at work. Unfortunately, the universe is not heeding my apathy. And I have been teaching more than I care to.
There is something that is happening at work that makes me want to show up. It makes me want to show up and laugh. And I have. I really should not laugh at the incompetency of the people who supposedly want to improve the structure by eliminating the only reason the structure held together. But hey, I don't run the place, so what the hell do I know?
Here's what I know. I know that if you plan on changing someone's life by taking away what they worked hard to create, then you should have a plan for their exit. And you shouldn't tell them that you are still working on it. Hahaha. The other thing that you should consider is that perhaps nobody is going to want to take on the supposedly new exciting opportunities available. Because no matter how much you try to roll a turd in sugar, it's still a turd.
I have been so resigned and detached at work. But this has brought me new joy. Seeing them send out an email extending the application deadline because "they don't want anyone to miss out on an exciting opportunity" makes me laugh out loud. Makes me want to see what kind of messes they get to apply. Makes me giggle in wicked joy.
Suddenly, being at work is not so bad. Later.
