That everybody? Cool!
I've more or less gotten through my anger and depression at being passed over for a permanent position, even though I've recently learned that the company hired two people off the street to fill the positions instead of anybody who was already here. Now, I'm just biding my time. I'll apply again when the times comes, but I won't expect it.
I'm not a corporate drone. I'm not one of these cats with undying loyalty to the company, believes the company can do no wrong and swallows every line the company feeds me. I'm not willing to kiss ass to get ahead. I'm one of these old fashioned cats who believes I should be awarded my position because of the quality of my work and the effort I put forth, not because he knows how to suck a good dick.
So, I'll work my 18 months. If I get the position next time, I get it, but in the meantime, I'm gonna look into other options.
That's all I have to say on that.
