Found out this morning from a co-worker that my super-candid, this-is-the-real-reason-why-I’m-quitting, guaranteed confidential conversation with HR went straight to my so-called new boss, which is why she’s refusing to give me a reference. (Even though I was just pointing out the obvious, which was that she has no idea what she’s doing, won’t listen to anyone else, and is making decisions that will run the site down into the ground.) *sigh* I should expect nothing else from this company. Such a shame, this whole situation. Very old company with tons of heritage, deliberately put down the toilet. Hey, I’m an American…if you guys don’t care about your heritage, why should I? I am SO out of here, and I am strongly in favour of only consulting/contracting from here on out, as I never want to be hired into a nest of snakes like this one again.
In other news, I went to try my Caprilli on Lizzie (we cancelled the eBay auction early, because I so hated the thought of losing this saddle). I’d had it on her a month ago…and yesterday the girth was about eight inches too short. Didn’t have a hope of even coming close to meeting. WTF? Looked at Lizzie, at the ever-expanding belly which I’d put down to having gained weight due to not being worked. She looks like an in-foal mare. Everyone at the stable thinks she looks in foal, as well – she’s HUGE. I really, truly hope not, but I suppose it’s possible – I bought her in July, and although I don’t remember anyone mentioning any stallions on the place, they may have. Just my luck it will have been someone’s old shaggy pony, and the foal will be worthless. As soon as I can afford to pay off her last vet bill, I’ll have to have him come out and check her. I suppose that might account for her panting while being worked, if she was far enough along to be in her last couple of months? Please no…just please no. :(
Otherwise, I’m just trying to skate through my last week here.
