is this the Workers Anonymous? Ok, I’m in…
I am currently facing quite a crisis (in a positive way we could call it a “revolution” or a “change”):
I am about to move to a new flat I have just bought. Bigger, newer, with a big (and I mean BIG: 1000 suqare meters) backyard, 15 minutes away from the small city where I always lived.
At the same time, the company were I have been working since 2000 is now in the making of some financial magic, so in the end we are receiving about 2/3 of our usual wage, while the last 3rd should be given us in April, I hope (the whole “magic” started party in September and fully in November)… Also, I have been moved from an interesting c++ project, which was closed because our manager is an idiot, to a boring Microsoft Dynamics NAV project.
I of course have a bank loan to pay now that I have bought the new flat, but my father promised me to help me by giving me the money he would earn from the selling of the apartment where I lived together with my girlfriend; but then, on January, he said that he could not give me what he promised, while he could only give me exactly what I needed to buy the home remaining with no other money in bank, about 20.000€ less than what he promised.
Finally, my girlfriend lost her work he did from home (a ridicolous income: 200€ for 2 days a week, but still money).
The result is now that I have started to hate this whole situation, starting from my girlfriend, who still lives with me now, but the situation is getting worse every day and I really hate to see her at my home now.
The only fixed point in my life now is my job which, although being boring, is what allows me to pay the bills and the loan, and I only see one aim in my life now: moving to the new apartment and live alone with my dog Mucca for a while. It has to be taken into account that I currently work in what is probably the best IT company in this area so I am really not motivated in a change, but still I would not advise you to make such kind of change into your life into such a delicate moment for the “civilized” world, although the crisis moments are the best ones to make changes: I, for example, decided to buy an home, but would not change my job for anything else at this time.
PS: Foo?, argh… really sad to hear the situation you are into… I sincerely hope you will see the light soon…
