Life is like a box of chocolate

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Mr.QuakQuak, Jul 2, 2004.


  1. I must say this is extremly true.

    My mother was fired today. Why you ask ? Because the people she works with are snobbish assholes.

    She started a new job as mamanger of the ER, comming down from mamangement at a jail. She was making almost $100,000. Her boss seems to listen to what other people say. The doctors were saying things weren't being done when she was never given a timeframe to do them in. To add, my mother was never properly orientated. Three weeks after starting the state came in for inspection and they did poorly. Monday she was warned she is still on probation. This is a nice hit in the ass for me. My mother and father are divorced. My dad is a castodian at the Post Office so he is no help. Head hunters were looking for managers down south and at this point I don't care were I go, senior year or not.

    Just venting before I go assassinate them all.

  7. ... well Mr. Gump says it two ways during the movie I think, one way when it starts and worded slightly different when it ends... iono... dont correct me on that stupid stuffs :)
     
  8. No, it's more like

    "everbody around the office took all the good tasty ones and left all these crappy ones still in the box, and then they moved them all around so they don't fit the diagram on the top of the lid, and so you're looking at what you think is a rum filled cherry covered with milk chocolate and find out it's a dessicated cicada covered with dog poo, and then you're like, 'hey- this was my chocolate and I thought it would be cool if I shared with you guys and you all left me crap!' and everyone pretends like they didn't hear you and finally some old bat that you can't be mean to says 'we got you a balloon too, now shut up' and you really want to hit her but you can't 'cause she's old and a girl..."

    or something...

    Hmm, unfortunate.

    ....to be realistic though, if your mom had the capacity to get this 100k job, she should be able to find another fairly quick.
     
  10. What she's going to do it work as a agency nurse for now if possible. What may happen is her old jail she worked at, their contract is up soon. She has inside information from the one company who supported them. The other company wants the info and they are probably getting the new contract so she can get re hired again at her old job.
     
  11. so, mqq, that really REALLY sucks that she got fired but its good that she may be hired again. good luck to her!!

    But of course that is deliberately dumb, because there is only one possible answer to what you're going to pull out of a box of chocolate....

    CHOCOLATE!!
