Found out yesterday from Pella. That I will be let go on the 26th. My status with the company will be considered "Inactive". Just call it what it is. Layed off. Fucking tossers..............

 Snow.......    2008-11-07 22:05:30 ET
Chilly bitter and extremely slushy..... It's been snowing since last nite. Even though the ground isn't cold enough to sustain it for long, there's still ice on my beast of a car. Up north towards the Dakotas, there are reports of snow drifts waist high! Hopefully not a vision of things to come too soon?

Still no word from pella as too what the outcome of being a flexible employees is. My line is down to 36 hours a week now.

Had a job interview this afternoon at Goodrich company. They manufacture fuel intake systems for helicoptors, commercial airplanes and fighter jets. They get oodles of government contracts. It looks promising. Hopefully. I'd be working 3rd shift at 13.75 an hour(training time), then possibly up to 16.85 afterwards.I'd still work Walmart, to get extra income to catch up on shite. My bonus at Pella for Christmas is 5% of my total wages for the year(minus 48% as a gift tax. and the 1/4 this fucking collection company takes. leaves me in the 20-40 buck range!)

Trying to hang in there. Not loose it and keep cool(not literally).

Been a month so far. And not a good one!

Got smacked twice by two different past credit cards. One ended up garnishing my main source of income.

Had to sign over my house to my Mom, so it couldn't/wouldn't be taken from me by creditors.

Hours fluxed at Pella from 55 a week. Back down to 40. Now to 36!!!

Vehicle repairs.

The lady is still acting goofy(*and not in a good way!!!).Who knows how long it will last? She's been taking off days galore!!!

She also got her own account, which leaves me paying the brunt of the bills!!!!

Now this week.............

Got called into a conference room Tuesday. Thought I may have botched up some product at Pella. To my dismay. 25 people were there. Then the number jumped to 41. In comes two people from human resources, then the plant manager.The manager starts talking about the economy.As he begun I started to get that warm adrenaline feeling seething in me! Were possibly getting layed off in two weeks. They are not sure? So they handed out some LOA(leave of absense) forms for us to fill out. The forms cover nov-march of next year. A lot depends on who picks what days, that goes for full timers too.And you know full timers are going to hold on to any days they can during Winter! We were told that if we have any other job opportunities that we should take them(*In essence were laying you off!). And that Farner Bocken(a distribution company across the way) is having a hiring faire on Nov 4th(this up coming week). And that we'd know in 2 weeks more about the situation!!! Human resources couldn't answer anyone questions reguarding unemployment or benefeits? And that all questions should be taken to the Iowa workforce!!! Since I have a second job, I probaly can't get unemployment!!6 people walked off of work that day. I was tempted, but I need the money!!! I may be able to get more hours at Walmart, not sure yet?

My plans on getting my pentacle tat on Hallows eve got axed today:(

As is driving to the lake to visit my dad:( Today is the fifth anniversary of him passing.

The lady being a continuous twat waffle isn't helping either:(

So mentally. I'm not in a good place right now........ Where the fuck is calgon when you need it. Or a great big soothing hug?

 Sunday........    2008-10-26 01:22:54 ET
Zoned on the couch when I got home from Wallyworld yesterday. It was a long shift. And all I wanted to do is come home and chill for a bit. Was that asking much? Of course. Isn't it always. I got hen pecked till I got snappy. And told them to go ahead without me. Two hours later they come back with food I guess? And my lady kept flicking me in the ear. So I kept going from drowsingly sleep, to awake and irritable. So I went upstairs and fell asleep in my work clothing, and woke at 4 this morning. Started two more loads of laundry, so I have clean clothing for work. Since I do all the laundry in the house. Yesterday made 4 days in a row, that my lady hung around the house while her mom visits in her pj's. And them you expect me to make dinner? WTF!!!!!!!!!!! I've had one day off in 18 days. My next evening off is Monday.

Pella gave us notice Friday that will probaly be cutting hours for the Winter season. So we could request days off from Nov-Jan. So I may do so. So I can get some work done on the house. Not that I want to skip getting paid. But I need a few days off, before I literally fucking loose it!!!

My ladies mom leaves Monday:) My inner bastard smiling, beaming in fact!

So there's now talk of a possible new stimulus package. It's now been bumped up to 1,200 bucks instead of 600. I didn't see any of the last stimulus check.Whoop-de-fucking doo.................
