Don’t trust her

This post has taken some time to do.  Not only because of MrH recent hospital stay but because it has been quiet upsetting. However, some of you have noticed I mentioned a new job in my post about resets so I figured I better get on with it.   If you recall from my post Well That Was Fun I visited A&E and having been given extra pain relief and a referral to see the Spinal Team I went home prepared to return to work the following day.  One of my employers (D1) said OK, the other (D2) requested a note from my GP to confirm I was well enough to work before he would allow this.

So when I contacted my GP she issued a sick note for 3 weeks.

Things got worse.  My office junior told a friend I trust that two of the directors had told her that she couldn’t trust me, not to speak to me and that I wasn’t coming back.  I thought things over for a few days, tried to speak to the office junior with no response, and eventually, I tendered my resignation.  D1 responded by saying they were shocked and that they had no idea where I would get such an idea? Perhaps I would like to reconsider?  I took a few days to respond deciding exactly how to explain myself properly. In the end I told them I had not changed my mind, and I had not made this decision hastily either.   Arrangements were made for MrH to collect my things.

I started looking for a part time job and received an invitation to attend an interview.   MrH drove me there as I was still unable to drive and they offered me the job.  It’s only 4 miles from home, less than a 10 minute drive and absolutely perfect. I work 5 hours a day and it’s enough.  Financially it will be a strain but emotionally and physically it is proving much better.  The people are nice and we have a giggle during the day.  It is taking some time to get used to leaving early in the afternoon but it is such a relief to get home and relax, that I am sure I will adjust to it soon enough.

So there it is, the end of one chapter and the start of another.  It is a 5 month contract, but it may be extended, and I am hoping it is, not only because my CV is starting to look more like a novel than a CV, but because I am enjoying it too.

  1. Good for you for standing up for yourself and not accepting the ill-treatment. It is such a shame when colleagues are toxic. It takes bravery to move on. I hope the new job goes well. 👍👍👍

  2. Some people are not very good bosses. Likely because they’re not very good people either! I’m glad you’re in a better place. I hope the finances work ok and that the 5 months are extended.
