MoSe

I'm more of a buoy.
And red, not yellow. Eventually orange.

BTW, I only work in gray suits. But I wear a yellow tie today.

I wish my photshopping skills were better. I think the image of MoSe floating on the edge of a shipping lane is excellent.

mr.G

So Mose, where were you?

is this the future, no more lame wordjokes during the day?

MoSe

No, I still have a reputation to build with the new colleagues.

And, shocking, the new work seems really interesting. Maybe because I haven't actually begun, yet, just training.
Yesterday my new group manager lingered till 9:30 pm to explain me quirks about configuration and design of Permanent Virtual Circuits on different technologies, protocols, architectures... or at least, I THINK that's what he was talking about... ;)

mr.G
13-05-2005, 08:56:25
okay, maybe because it is all new and all.
can you give us the mailadresses from your new colleagues so we can end this illusion?

9.30???? In the evening I hope? Or have you started working early now as well?

Funko
13-05-2005, 09:11:55

mr.G
13-05-2005, 09:16:00

Funko
13-05-2005, 09:20:20
I have a new policy of unleashing the rolleyes on those who deserve it.

I realise this tactic means I'll be rolleyesed myself more often but so I should be. :)

Greg W
14-05-2005, 00:36:06
What I want to know is. He's starting work all of 35-45 mins later, and yet he's setting his alarm for 2 hours earlier. :confused: :lol: :clueless:

I won't accept the switch from 'before' to 'after' even if they pay me thrice the money.

MoSe probably likes the new job a lot, that's the only reason I could find that change 'barely' acceptable.

MoSe

I had no choice.
HR had decided that It was overstaffed, while other Directions were understaffed.
My Unit boss had to pick two resources to relinquish, and he chose the two who had less technically specific skills for the Unit mission.
The new position was the only viable one which came out so far. Had I rejected it, I might have been forced later to accept whichever they'd offered, which could have easily been worse.

As I had no option to stay were I was, I could impose no condition. That's why I accepted to change worksite within the same city (albeit 14km from home instead of 4), before they could tell me for instance that I had to move to Rome or find another job (a dire perspective given the current conjuncture here).
That's also why, dealing of "internal" mobility, no change of economical conditions whatsoever was ever considered (and ethically speaking, in the last 4 years I've been paid for mostly posting on CG and playing Fantasy Football during workhours, so I can barely complain... :cute: ).

I start work 45 miutes *earlier* (in the sense that where I was no one really cared about or controlled the exact time I got at work, so up to 1 hour delay was easily tolerated, while here I wouldn't like the new boss and colleagues to form right away a negative impression about me. er... :lol: ).

And it takes me at least 30 more minutes travel.
Plus, the earliest I have to get up, the more "safety margin" time I need to allocate...

Anyway, after the 1st week, I already adapted my biorythms and I can afford to set the alarm at 7am now :)
