Other than that, still lovin' this new job!
::perk:: New job? Without Stonecold?
Well, almost. Thanks to a union shakeup, the details of which would probably out me more than I want to be, a lot of my coworkers with grievances have been shifted around. I didn't have an grievances filed (I know what a brick wall feels like when I run into it and it didn't seem worth the pain to do) but I kind of caught a tail wind and am possibly the only person happy with her current situation.
Stonecold is still my big boss, but I am now away from the main library and its crowd of walking wounded/reality challenged/logic impaired. I no longer have to hear from Ninja about her zombie issues, or Crazy Titanic Man or Herbert Hoover Walked On Water Man (among others). Instead, I am at the farthest flung branch in one of the two "nice" sections of town and everyone who uses the computers knows how to create their own email, job accounts and so on. I'm responsible for children's programming, teen programming, reference work and making up things for the volunteers to do. My new boss is so laid back he needs to be propped up occasionally and I now run a book club whose members come to discuss the book and not eat the food.
I haven't had an attack of IBS for a month!
It isn't all a bed of roses: I'm still working out of classification, one of my coworkers is a thirty year old support staffer who had the fear of God put in her by my predecessor and believes that "everything has to be this way from now on", so every time I make a change, I turn around and she is insisting that it must be done the old way because Susie Said So! And, instead of the logic impaired, our neighborhood is laden with special snowflake mommies and daddies who think nothing of walking in at ten minutes to closing and demanding that we stay open while their little angels play on the computers.
Still, I feel so much better, I am sleeping much better and I am out of gossip central which is good because, ladies and gentlemen, in case you couldn't tell, I am a disreputable gossip who usually gets all the goods from people who mouth off in front of me.
I like being away from the center where I don't fret, help stir the pot or otherwise whine. It's very empowering and a lot healthier!
