Coworker: ..... [redacted] and I talked this evening.. We both agree that nothing is going to change.. [redacted] said that he thinks Allen wants your head.. I'm really serious bro...
Well, well, well. I'd had my suspicions, and you know, dear reader, that I have jotted them down here before. However, this is a whole new ball game, since this is the first time I've really gotten solid, real material from somebody else that would indicate I wasn't simply having paranoid delusions or something. Yes, you can call it hearsay, but given that the source is highly reliable and "in the know" I'm going to trust them on this one.
I look at it this way, if my manager wants a fight, he's got it. I've outlasted one crazy bastard manager and by god I'll outlast this worthless slug, too. I am not a perfect employee, nor do I pretend to be. But I do know my stuff and I want to make a difference in this company. Frankly, given what I do for the company, I work pretty bloody cheap, and I know one high-level manager in particular recognizes that.
The problem as I see it is that people like my current jackass boss are too busy trying to make a name for themselves within the company. They're so busy being their own best PR buddies they end up causing more problems than they provide solutions.
So cast your votes, ladies and gentlemen; the war is about to begin, and I don't intend to pull any punches. If I'm going down, I'm going down with all guns blazing.
