Friday was very odd - no work today - Journal of Omnifarious

12:31 pm - Friday was very odd - no work today

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Friday was quite an odd day for me.

I went in to work and as soon as the co-worker who's taking over my code came in he started pushing me into teaching him things right away, without me getting any chance to continue the finishing-up work I've been doing. About half-way through this, he reveals that they aren't all that interested in me showing up on Monday and intend to pay me for the entire next week, but not have me work.

I found this disappointing because there's stuff I did really want to do before I left. I also pride myself on the fact that any previous job I've left I've been considered trustworthy enough to do whatever was needed to set things right before I left.

So, here I am now at home taking a weeks vacation I wasn't expecting but probably needed. I'm not upset over it, it was just very weird for me. I considered telling Lockdown I could start a couple of days early. But I think I won't. I don't really need the extra money, and the vacation is kinda needed.

I have half-been-fired-from/half-quit two places now, and neither of them did this. One of them was pretty large even. So, this is a pretty unusual experience. I've heard of it happening, so I wasn't too surprised. But, yeah, this is very odd for me.

I hope you thoroughly enjoy your unexpected time off! Putz around the house in your bathrobe all day, work on some fun project you've been putting off, whatever floats your boat. Just have fun!
