I just had my exit interview. Let me first say that anyone who is an HR professional, please look away. I had a horrible experience with my exit interview. The meeting was kicked off with an opportunity to give any feedback and to explain why I was leaving. We would then follow with an explanation of the benefits (of which I didn't need as in a previous life I was a benefits analyst) and COBRA. So I started to explain that the reason I was leaving was because of the unprofessional, rude and otherwise undesirable behavoir by my director. That was when she turned the meeting around on me. Why didn't I say anything before? Why didn't I tell the director that his behavoir was rude? WHAT? Oh sure, that would have made it a more comfortable workplace when I'm telling the director that he's rude. How could they make it better if no one complains. First I don't think they have the power to "make it better". This is the ass' nature. There is no changing it. What's HR going to do about it? Put a note in his folder? What she did was make me feel unreasonable for being uncomfortable enough to look elsewhere without talking to her first. I finally told her that I don't care whether so and so is bothered by his behavoir, the 4 people before me were unhappy enough to leave and so am I. Whatever. I'm done. One more day. Its not worth the energy.
In happier news, I checked out Tutor Time this morning as the wicked early time of 7AM. Eew. The center is gorgeous. The security is phenomenal. The program is wonderful and I think the kids will be happy there. It is also quite a bit more expensive than the current place. I'm beginning to seriously think that I'd been getting a bargain price. I'm happy enough with the place that I'll be canceling the appt. I have for tomorrow afternoon at another center a bit further from home. I crunched the numbers and can definitely swing it, but I will be knitting from stash more. A new austerity budget regime is about to commence. Two more years until public school.
Thanks to the help of the other bloggers on this wonderful internet, I finally found what I'm going to do with all the leftover sock yarn! I saw this first when Beth posted about seeing one here. Okay, I'm a hooker too.
I've been crocheting technically longer than I've been knitting. Mom taught me to crochet first. Probably a granny square then too :) I have nightmares from the 70's of brightly colored ack-rylic granny squares being seamed together for just about everything under the sun. No thanks. But. One big honking granny square blankie of quality sock yarn, count me in! Is it bad that I'm looking at sock yarns to see how they would fit in to the blanket? That center blue stuff? That's the leftover of the Lorna's in the Jeans colorway. Leftover after getting two socks from one skein. He he. Okay, anyone got leftover sock yarn they don't want?
What else? Oh yeah, the first sock is definitely done (and there's a goodly amount of leftover ;) and the second is well begun though I won't bore ya with progress shots of it as they'll look alot like the first one.
As to the larger quantity leftover, I'm torn between adding it to the blankie or making pairs for the monkeys. Grrr.
Anyway, beloved SnB tonight! Woot. Can't wait. Tomorrow? Last Freakin' Day! woooooot
