My new job

I’m really really excited and a little bit nervous.

Actually I might be a bit more nervous than excited.

I have a new job.  Apparently everyone is talking about it.  I’m pretty sure the people talking about it fall into two camps; there are those that work with me currently who are celebrating, and those that think they might be working with me in the future who are probably drinking themselves into a stupor to numb the pain of the news.

My nerves might surprise you; let me explain.

I don’t know what this new job is.  I didn’t know until this evening that I was moving jobs.  I haven’t even had an interview, although this isn’t always an indicator.

I know some people want me to move out of my current job.  I also know that there are some people that would like me to work in their department.

That’s all I know.  I haven’t had any conversations with anyone that go beyond this and I can’t remember exactly when a job move might have been mentioned casually in passing, apart from tonight.

Tonight I was told that it’s a fact - I’m moving jobs.  This fact has come from the rumour mill and is therefore true.

I’m always the last to know.  But I am excited.  Change is always exciting.

I guess someone's got a plan and you're in it.

Oh Anonomous, you beat me to it :(

Congratulations Ann, hopefully when you find out what it is and where you're going, you'll be happy!

Did you guys actually read my post?

I guess I'll wait for a post called "My new job (revealed / part 2)" and keep fingers crossed that you land somewhere nice and exciting. :)

You must all be super sarcastic. Either that or you are all lacking a sarcasm detector.

Well - I guess it is still congratulations...whatever it is going to be - it is probably still an escape out of madness?

Ann said...

You don't get it do you? One rumour does not a job make. There is no job.

Dju said...

You may be right...but is there not always some truth to a rumor?

And you are certainly right: I never get it ...

berry said...

Keeping fingers crossed doesn't help either, then?

:(

I am officially starting a rumour that I have a new job. Feel free to spread this rumour. Please, when spreading this rumour, make my new job really interesting and exceptionally well paid.
I am hoping the maxim "no smoke without fire" bears fruit.
