Great story, CO – ha ha! The Sales Manager called me once after I quit to put some feelers out as far as my work situation, I imagine to see if I wanted to come back. Supposedly she had a question related to the work I used to do, and I told her to send an email with the specifics. Then she launched into a bunch of questions about if I was working, looking for work, etc., so she was clearly more interested in that than the supposed question she had. In fact, she never sent me an email after all that.

Again, they were just so slimy. If the GM wanted me back, he should have contacted me and asked me directly, rather than having his lackey call me under false pretenses. If he was still so mad at me that he didn’t even want to call me to ask me to come back, why would I want to go back? In part it may have been an ego thing too, like he didn’t want to deal with me saying no.

More good news. I had a meeting with my boss towards the end of last week. She said she was extremely happy with my work so far. They are going to set the wheels in motion so I will be able to start telecommuting by the end of the month!

I am so glad. As far as jobs go, it is a good one, but the commute is really sucking the life out me. I will occasionally have to go in for a meeting, but only once or twice a month. So, I am getting back about 10 hours of my life a week! Plus I don't have to deal with the creepy, rude, questionable hygiene dwarfish guy so much. And, I won't have to come home to dog poop in the house. The dogs can make it to about 6 PM, but if neither of us can get home by then for some reason, they have had some issues. I am sure they will be happy to have me around again.

Yet again, I have to say that quitting that crappy job was one of the best things I have done.
