Joined 3 years ago from Walnutport, PA. USA




I am nearly 50 and sick to death of the corporate "make a dollar at any cost" mentallity. I suffered a stroke at 46, and was "escorted to the door" at 47, after nine years of dedicated service to a company whos motto is "we treat poeple the way we expect to be treated". Apparently that "treatment" does not decend to the empoyees. My postion was "eliminated". But it was actually combined with another, which I could have easily handled. I was a "leftover" from the previous hierarchy. The "man" (hahaha) who ended up being my superior, actually quit. But was rehired as my boss. And after that, became the company GM. So... who's junk was being sucked by that guy (who's only education is from Seminary college)?

Instead, task upon task, which others used to carry, was burdened upon me, which I had seen happen to coworkers elsewhere and should have recognized as their effort to oust me.

But I was too complacent, satisfied with the paycheck and benefits, to get the hell out before this. No. Instead, I am called into a multitude of quiting time meetings, and when I ask them to rescedule them for earlier in the day.... I get yet another end-of-day meeting request ( which is my "we are eliminating your position" 'meeting') and I am walked to the door by the A-hole that everyone adored with the Harley, and the classic Chevelle, and the pool .......

I have had it up to HERE with corporate America.....

I am currently looking to start my own business.... Nobody out there cares about me, but Me.
