Crushing The Block

My inbox. Oh, I don't really like that subject line. Well, click it --

I hate to push back yet again, but I can hardly get anything done right now. Let me finish UI + client project first.

Also, my concentration is complete shit. This money thing still fucks me up.

How I Lost My Job for Working Too Hard

On No Status Quo

Two weeks ago I lost my part-time job. My contract was due an extension, but I wasn't offered one. Instead the company chose to hire someone else the same month they let me go. They said I wasn't fired, but it's hard to use any other word for this.

I asked them if it had anything to do with my performance. They said that my performance was great. Indeed, I worked harder than most other people in the company. Including my boss.

I asked them if it had anything to do with my personality. They said of course not. I'm not so sure about that.

Then I asked if there was anything at all that made them choose someone else instead of me. They avoided the question.

I don't think they were just throwing dice when deciding who was getting fired and hired. So I pointed that out. That kind of pissed them off.
