“Running Short On Personality”

Free at last. Free at last. Thank God, Almighty. I’m free at last.  

It’s true. Today’s the day. I will never again have to deal with my “boss”. I haven’t felt this happy in a long while.

Plus, it was nice to leave with affirmation that I am doing the right thing by quitting. Right before I told the “boss” that I was going to leave for the day, he was telling his secretary that “everyone around him is running short on personality” because she wasn’t able to convince a clerk at a local court to fax over a court order. Apparently, her lack of personality was the reason she couldn’t convince the clerk to do what he wanted-just like my lack of personality was the reason I was unable to strong-arm the IRS phone operator yesterday.  Right……anyhow, who cares! I’m DONE!

I’m loving my “boss” free life right now-no matter how short on personality I might be.

Are you kidding me?

So my “boss” is ridiculous. He asked me to make a call and get some things taken care of with the IRS. I called and the woman refused to talk to me because I don’t have a power of attorney form filed for our client. I wasn’t able to get the information for him.  This apparently is “not helpful”. So “not helpful” that this sentiment has to be repeated 6 times. So I repeated that she couldn’t give me the information without a power of attorney. The whole concept is pretty clear if you ask me. And it pretty much has NOTHING to do with me. Besides the fact that I’m the poor sap that got stuck on hold for 45 minutes.

Anyhow, my boss ended the conversation by skulking away saying “I’m glad I left this office on a positive note.” Oh really? I don’t care how I leave this office. Because I am the 7th person to be in my position in a one year time span. I almost quadrupled everyone else’s timespan that they were able to put up with your freakin’ attitude. And yeah, you’re not a talented lawyer. You have no social skills. F you. I can’t wait to leave. Positive note or not.

PS. No one wants to hear your conversations with your wife on speaker phone. Nor any of your other calls. But especially those with your wife. It’s uncomfortable because it’s really clear that she can’t stand you either.

Dress Code

My “boss” came into work today wearing quite the outfit: a stone-washed denim shirt that matches his amazing stone-washed denim pants. He is quite the snazzy dresser. He’s been known to wear acid-washed black denim jeans with a rainbow striped shirt. He also has quite the assortment of shirts with his initials embroidered on the shirt pocket. I’m pretty sure that this is anti-theft device, because his shirts are surely one of a kind. He must drive his wife wild.

If I’m to learn a lesson from him on how a “lawyer” dresses, then I’m really in trouble. None of my clothes have my initials on them. Also, I don’t know where I’ll find acid washed jeans for Casual Fridays.
