Okay, so my job went from being really crappy to non-existent. Translation: I got fired. I filed a complaint against my boss because I felt like he was harrassing me. I mean, what else would you call it when someone follows you constantly and does weird things like interrupt you while you're LITERALLY in the MIDDLE of a conversation with a co-worker?!?!?! If I left the lab...he would follow me. It became a running joke amongst my co-workers because if I was in the room, my boss would always show up about 60 seconds later and pretend he was doing something. It was bad. I was way too stressed out.
Anyway, I complained to my boss' boss...who used to be my boss. She's cool and smart and I figured she would see my complaint for what it was: an excuse to get rid of the guy who EVERYONE hates. I mean, really...nobody likes the guy. It's a long story, but it boils down to: I was making money for the company. My boss was ruining products and has probably cost that company more than he makes in a year. Seriously. Would you fire the MOST experienced person in the department?!?! NO!!!!! That was ME!!!! DUH. My boss had zero science background. No college degree. I HAVE 7 ******* YEARS OF EXPERIENCE! And 2.5 of those were at one of the largest biotech. companies in the world!!!!!!! AND I HAVE A ******* B.S. IN BIOLOGY!!!!! Okay, I had to get that out of my system. It feels good to visually scream.
Well, I got fired approximately two weeks after complaining. Ha. And the ironic thing is that I HAD TOLD MY BOSS' BOSS THAT I was looking for a new job because I couldn't handle dealing with my boss anymore. But one of the morons in QC went and squealed to her boss that I had made a comment about not being at the company long. Retard! Seriously...now they are going to have to pay my unemployment because they had no real reason to fire me. But the best part is: I'm just going to use this time to go back to school. I got in contact with the right people (because I'm Native like that) and they can help me get my Masters. And my MD. Funny thing is if my company had waited a few more weeks, I probably would have had another job. =) Now I'm happy and relaxed and keeping busy. I need to study for the GRE and the MCAT. Maybe do some volunteer work.
I've never been fired before, but it feels great. LOL.
Unexpected life changes...
