We wrapped up the project we've been working on at Disorganization Inc. on Thursday and were told we'd be off on Friday and to "have a nice weekend". Ahhhh! Three entire blissful days without needing to navigate the Viper Pit! Bliss!
And then, this evening, I get a message that there is an "optional" work opportunity on Saturday. Yes, that's right, Friday evening after having Friday off because there was no more work to do (and anticipating all day that I was going to get a call that the assignment is ending), we are then contacted and told we are free to come in at noon on Saturday.
Ummmm...NO! Enough is enough. I am through with the loyalty tests and the mind games. If you have a job for me, GREAT! If you don't, FINE! But don't ask me to sacrifice weekends and work 12-14 hour days because you feel you can use the fact that I need to be working against me.
I have given 110% to this job. I've worked 12-14 days in a row 12-14 hour days. I've given up my social life, I've severely damaged my closest relationship and my health is suffering. Add to that the fact that I work with a roomful of people who wouldn't piss on me if I were on fire.... I'm just not feelin' giving up yet ANOTHER Saturday, when I've already made plans, to go spend time with people I don't like one little bit. And if that means that I lose a long-term opportunity, I'm fine with that. I'm tired of getting my chain yanked. I am tired of all of the petty bitchiness.
