Technicalities

I finish here on 30 November. I’ve asked for leave for the 27th. I got told by Ranger Mouse that he doesn’t think they can do without me and ‘technically’ I can’t take leave after handing my resignation.

a) If you can’t do without me, how about showing your appreciation in my remuneration. Shpanks.
b) Technically, I didn’t resign. I informed you that I would not be renewing my contract, because technically I was never really hired. And technically (am I overusing this word?), I only needed to give you a week’s warning so… wait for it… technically I could fuck off today.

I’ve never taken one sick day, I start work at 6am every damn morning and I’ve never been (more than 30minutes) late. I work overtime on a regular basis and I’m owed four days leave… so I’m taking it to HR.

I know I’m not alone in my hard-working mission but at this stage, Ranger Mouse - the obsequious superhero - can eat my pip-munching shorts.

Ps. I almost flattened a colleague in my haste to get to work this morning. Apologies Anger (her name means Anger… isn’t that awesome?), you still rock my working world.

It's in the print...

Clause 47.1.23: Upon signing, you hereby designate your soul to our control - and thereby the devil's. Each time you step through the door, we drain another pint of your life force.

Clause 47.1.24: Mwaahahahahaaaa!

I quite like the image of Ranger Mouse complete with flowing green cape and yellow rubber boots, hands gallantly planted on hips, nose sniffing the air for danger.

The other name and its related image is not so pretty. I prefer not to dwell on it.

From his behaviour, I'd say neither does his girlfriend...
