As life goes on...

Current Mood: accomplishedaccomplished
Ive made the personal decision to take charge of my life and my talents. I put in for my release from BA, with a little money to hopefully pocket in the event I can find sustainable employment within 6 months. For too long I have felt unappreciated, unrecognized and abused. It would only get worse if I chose to stay. BA finally gave me a way out that I could take without regret or remorse. I have held that company up for so long, helping everyone who would benefit from my talents, for their own betterment and in the end I continued to get the shaft. Sure I got a 4% raise every year when no one else did... but that doesn't even compensate me for doing tohe work of your incompetent management.

No longer will I take this abuse silently. I will move on from your corperation and start anew where I am unknown and able to make a new name for myself. I can walk from that job with my head held high, a good damn resume that will probably get me some form of work relatively quicker than most others affected by this relentless economy, and about 10k in survival money that I can manage to sustain my life for the next 6 months if necessary. I have no delusions about the challenge that now faces me, but I also have faith in my abilities and know that this will turn out to be the better decision. In the event I can find a job that will insure my daughter before my time is up, then I have walked from this company in the positive column. Sure I will take a pay cut, but its worth it to me. Now that my bankrupcy is in motion, its only a matter of time before I can realize my goal of being rid of that job. I just simply took steps now to only better my position.

So now I look forward to my last week as a BA employee, and my eventual exile from a job that I loathe. They deserve to be crippled by the loss of an employee that can do their job better than they can. I feel empowered and elated.

I have received nothing but support from those directly affected by this decision, and close friends inside and outside of that office who know how unappreciated I was. It is time for me to move on from a futureless job, and create my own future. Now's the time to take a stand for myself and do something new with my life.

Now's my time... I Quit!!

While my schedule immediately cleared with this decision, it also got filled up by being the summer babysitter for the kids. So I'm not committing to anything, but send me the info on it and I will make an effort to finally make it to one of your shows.

Wow, congrats. As someone who was happy to leave BA willingly instead of waiting for the decision to be made for me, I applaud your actions. I bet they are crapping themselves right now because they would have never expected you to go, and quite frankly they deserve to see what it is like when they alienate good people. I wish you the best of luck in your future job searches, please let me know if I can serve as any sort of professional reference.

Best Regards, (lol)

Re: Woot!

I was more waiting for an opprotune moment to fuck them, and this is definately that time. I am hoping to bank on some of that severance money, but alas I think it's simply going to help me finalize my bankrupcy so I can get the discharge all that more sooner. And that's okay with me. I still have a chance to bank some of it, so I will try like hell to do so.

And yes, actually I need your help in this venture. Keep an ear out for postings. I already tapped Yogesh, and he's on the hunt. But I figure if you both are telling your boss they can steal yet another quality rates agent from BA, all the sweeter. Angelina gave me her resume so technically it would be two of us that want in, although my need is greater than hers since she's a chicken shit and kept with the job. heh.

I am sure at some point a position will open up, but I don't know when that will happen. So I'm going to be patient and survive as best as I can in this world until that knock comes to my door.

Your right, I dont think anyone saw this coming. I'm sure it will be taken for what it is, a sign of the times... that a quality agent like what I bring to the table is willing to walk from the sinking ship while it's still sinking. There's no future for me there. This really is the best decision I could make given the circumstances presented to me. And thanks for the support hun, ill need it.

Muah!! =^.^=

Re: Woot!

Absolutely. Word down the pipeline is that no hiring is going to be going on, but I'll keep an eye out for sure. Hurry up and learn some Sabre though, as that might be the only thing that would cause you issues.
Honestly I think once you get rid of the bankrupcy hanging over your head it will probably solve a lot of the money stress that made keeping the job necessary in the first place, so you're really killing 2 birds with one stone.
Do you know who else from BA walked? I know they were looking for 3 from the sup dept and 5 managers, if I heard correctly

Re: Woot!

i have no clue how to learn sabre without working with an agent, but i understand the mechanics arent much more different, and I'm a quick learner. I am not even worried about the fact they arent hiring. I know at some point they will be and when they do I will be all over it.

I know it is me and Beau. I dont know who the third one was but I'm sure I will find out when i go to work tomorrow. As for the managers, Rosemarie's a definate and the rumors said Gretta was another one.

I'm sure there will be an announcement soon, if not next week. will keep you posted. Luv!
