How's work been?

I've met a few people like that in my career, all of them highly technical with pretty severe interpersonal shortfalls. Never seen an org that could not replace them in a few months, tops. The only ones who managed to stay where they were, were in organizations with toxic leaders.

I’m at the point where I am trying to figure out how to word my letter of resignation so make it clear that it is because of payroll and not because of my management, without being insulting or excessively bitter (this is proving difficult).

Then I’ll have to see what options I have to recover unpaid time and compensation for repeatedly late payments for myself and my coworkers.

Right now the idea of leaving is a weight off my shoulders, even though I know I’ll be facing a different weight if I don’t secure a new source of income before the end of the year.

So the last big meeting of the school year is happening now for my program (spoiler: I am not there). In a medium-sized room with some windows which I assume are open, with I'm assuming nobody wearing masks. It's 30 C. here (86F). I wear a mask. I have asthma. I cannot wear a mask in the heat for long. So I am not there.

My school has been doing distance learning since March. They're meeting in the room, that's basically called something like "The Innovation Room".

They made no provisions for people wanting to connect remotely. My best friend there told me he cannot get a wifi signal to connect me through Teams or Zoom on his phone.

I am...nonplussed.

My company has been making lots of changes lately and is going in a direction I don't care for. My boss of over 20 years went to our parent company and my group got shuffled off to a different manager whose group got shuffled off to someone else. They have us documenting all of our processes under the guise for the new manager to understand what we do, but feeling a bit paranoid about what happens when I am done documenting all of my processes. So long story short, anyone willing to give it a once over after I have udpated it and critique it/offer advice?

With the way the economy is, why not keep your current job while looking for something new? There are layoffs everywhere so the job market will be saturated for the rest of the year probably.

Started my new job today after the appointment was delayed 6 months due to admin stuffups and financial things.
