More on Quitting My Job

Spent the day talking with investment counselors about rolling over my pension into an IRA, and other possibilities with my 401K and other investments. Basically, not only should I have no problem generating the conservative amount of income I've planned for retirement, but, if I do this right, there's a real good chance my investments would earn at least as much, if not more, than the salary I was getting!

As the financial advisor said, "Man, this is where the fun part of your life starts! What cool trip are you going to go on first?"

I feel better about leaving those incompetent assholes every day!

My NANO finally works!

Geezuz - what a trip! Sent my Nano in for repairs, 1 month later it comes back with exactly the same problem. Skips all the songs I downloaded from iTunes. Gawd.

So, I get on the phone - spend the entire day calling Apple tech support until I finally, finally find a geek who knows what the hell she is doing. She spent about 45 minutes with me, running tests on my pc, tests on the iTunes player, tests on some test music downloads.

Lo and behold - my Nano now works!! So now it isn't a complete waste of $250!

But, before you start thinking I'm supportive of geeks, they still can't figure out why I still can't burn iTunes downloads to cds. Got a feeling I'll see pigs fly first before that happens...

Just Quit My Job - Screw the Lying Bastards!

Well - a momentous decision was made last week. I told my boss to shove it and quit my job. I put up with all of the bullshit I was going to take. They're telling me all my customers hate my job performance, so therefore, I'm not going to get a raise. And I'm sitting there with a printout of a customer satisfaction survey that says just the opposite! My boss's response - "Well, they lied when they filled out the survey."

Can you believe this shit?? (Heh, do people really do this shit? Yeh, "People do!")

Plus I've gotten over 3 dozen recognition awards the last 2-3 years from my customers, including 2 of the biggest award that the corporation even gives out. Plus, I just got another award 2 days before he tells me this.

What a bunch of crap. I was so mad I couldn't see straight.

Anyway - I'm now in AARP land. My investment bankers are gonna be my best friends.

This was without a doubt, the best decision I ever made.
