I have to say, I had completely forgotten how much DRAMA is involved with a regular job! Sure I missed having colleagues, the lunches filled with chatter, the watercooler moments, gossiping about the boss… feeling connected to people. Feeling like we all work towards the same goal en getting great results! I should have known I was looking at it through pink glasses.
The colleagues are friendly, and it has been nice, but I wasn’t prepared to get sucked into incredible drama that is ongoing! I won’t go into details, as I’m sure they’d bore you, but in these few weeks, the managers have quit their job, and have been replaced, the staff is planning mutiny and the owner is – quite frankly – a bit senile. As a temp it’s been crazy seeing all this happening in such a short time.
I’ve missed my harlotting ways more than you can imagine, and I am back to them now. Though there will be another break from mid September – December as they’ve asked me to help them hold down the fort until the new management settles in. (I really have to learn how to say no, or at least to ask for a raise) I do plan to keep on working this time round, it is a nice city and there’s bound to be a lovely lady looking for a girl to work with. I’m even considering joining an agency! But that is all in the future, for now I’m busy getting reacquainted with my regulars, I’ve missed them and I’m so happy to see them again.
The drama has resulted in a renewed interest in moving abroad! I’ll be saving and hopefully make the move to either the UK or Ireland in the beginning next year. I’m very excited to get unstuck and moving!
