March madness – shopping

Typically, March madness is meant for games but my March madness is slightly different and it wasn’t games related but shopping instead.  The mall near to our home is closing down and they have the deal from 50-75% off  and some of them even add extra 25%.  Yes, I am there even got a long day at work.

Guess both of us do not need to buy jeans for a while now.

Promotion

After being in Senior position for 10months and I finally got a little promotion to be Manager.  Yes, I will do my best to ensure my team shine.

An idiotic concept

Girls night out last night.  Whoa it was fun and after a few drink and my BFF spilled out the truth in her work environment and while we were listening and in the same time I felt so sorry for her.

She is very successful young lady who is working in the corporate office as a contractor.  But her management recently hired a FTE in her team.   Where my BFF got to report to that newbie.  Funny thing is, that new hired don’t even have any experience on the role for the position but veteran.  Understood, Corporate office should support the military folks and we can’t Thank You enough for their service.  But seriously how can they simply hire people even without any experience?  What the fuck is that!  I smell disaster right there.

The most drive me to the edge was, my BFF sent the proposal to the management months for them to consider her to convert to Full Time Employee to that company.  Once again, she got single out.  She is the one person who keep the ship float but it has been many time she has been single out.

I truly believe this management got an idiotic concepts below:

  • Do not care for her/his stuff
  • Dare not fight for her/his stuff

Seriously, how good will that be if your management can’t even fight for you.  I advise her to look around rather than stay in this condition.  If those people are going to say ‘Yes’ to their boss while their stupid boss has their idiotic concept.  Than the hope for the fellow contractor work their ass off and hoping to convert will not be the case.  Though I advised her to look around knowing there is no future there.

Hoping that moron management will wake up one day and realize their problem.
