    More like, since the company can work without you for these weeks long meetings, you are fired,

    So, apparently my line lead (who can be a major goose but is overall a very decent person) went to bat for me with my department manager. Department manager said he was gonna move me to another line, line lead basically put his foot down and said No you're not he's a good worker and a good kid and I guess that was just that.

    Finished up my summer grad class today. Felt a bit listless as I now have a bit over a month till I have to go back to work.

    Started watching the Wire again.

    Strange day.

    I got to tune up my sales and service manager, the guy who was my superior when I started a little over a year ago, for not crossing off/redacting bad or irrelevant info on invoices... After I've asked him 3 times to "just cross it off if it's wrong. Don't make me guess which is correct, or force me to refer to a totally different paper I never see until we print the shipping label."

    Then my assistant got pulled to help with the owners pet project (not a big deal, just means I do operations and shipping).

    Then I got to give a guy a job.

    I've never given a job before. Interviews? Yes. A say in final hire? Sure. This time I did everything short of posting the ad.

    Really feels like I made the big leagues.

    Oh boy. So yesterday the slackers on morning shift screwed up, BIG TIME. Basically they ignored some big warnings and didn't care enough to say anything so shit hit the fan and after that it was found that hours before shit hit said fan these guys could have stopped it. Of course they got chewed out but that was it. I got the brunt of my boss's anger because I was around when they weren't. That was super fun but I know he was just venting. Today they missed 8 tickets in our system. 8. I had to tell the boss and his smile immediately disappeared and he just said "I need to get the hell out of here for the weekend" sure boss, enjoy your 4 day weekend. I'll be here all weekend including on the 4th, my third Holiday I have had to work in a row. Oh also I'll be cleaning up after them all weekend since I guarantee that even if the guy scheduled showed up on the 4th (he won't, I'll have to come in early) he won't be doing any work.

    We got bought! (Sort of) (It's complicated) (But we're still public!)

    Now to check my stock options...

    oh well, most of them are being cancelled, that's bullshit, but at least the ones I have left actually have value, that's nice.

    How much value?

    *does math*

    OK I have an answer in which I am 99% confident and which I believe is 99% accurate:

    My stock options are worth somewhere between $310 and $44,000

    What? I didn't say how precise my estimate was.

    I also had a stress dream last night in which I resigned via email without warning.

    Had to check my sent mail folders like ten times on the way to work this morning to get it out of my head.

    Wait they can cancel stocks on you? That seems like bullshit

    So with less than a week of design and build time I launched a website that is objectively 1000x better than the previous website for the entire school district.


    I am now off for four days so I won't have to see what a flaming mess this turns into until Wednesday. Also hopefully they pay me sooner than later.

    Stock options, basically there was the chance to buy stock at a certain price, but it was withdrawn with the buyout.

    You didn't give a reason to your conscious self?

    A magician gives you a ring that, when worn, will let you see the world as it truly is.
    However, the ring will never leave your finger, and you will be unable to ever describe to another living person what you see.

    Welp didn't get the amazing job I wanted & was actually pretty qualified for. Sigh. Guess I gotta keep looking.

    (As an aside why did I get this email at 11:30 pm of all times?)

    Oh no I didn't need to leave one. My conscious self has a whole rant written out to deliver during my exit interview.

    that was what was so scary; I have every reason to bug off because of how they've treated me but I don't want to lose out on these sweet sweet stock grants

    This is accurate but it's still (probably?) bullshit.

    They are planning on delivering an equity plan that might make up for the bullshit but we haven't seen word one of the terms.
