Weekend and Work Guy

Hope everyone had a good weekend:-) Despite the warnings from the weather people, it was actually really nice at the beach. Saturday afternoon was sunny, and yesterday was pretty sunny all day long. It wasn't super, super warm, but it was nice enough to lay out yesterday, and nice enough on Saturday to be outside all day.

That made for a pretty fun weekend. There was a big crowd at the beach house...me, The Boy, Smoking Hot Roommate & The Rocket Scientist, Papa Bear and his Lady Friend, Munchkin and two of her friends and two other friends of me and SHR. Big Sis was a no-show because she was working all weekend (everyone give a sympathetic "awww" in unison).

Would you all laugh at me if I told you that The Boy and I sleep in separate rooms when we are down there? Papa Bear likes to run a morally upright household whenever he can...LOL.

Anyway, the final chapter in the Work Guy saga was Friday, and I think it went pretty well. We had lunch and talked for at least an hour and a half or so. Part of the problem is definitely that he measures me against the Associates, and I don't have the experience they have (I went over the whole org structure here if you need crib notes). So, if the dipshit had simply paid attention from the start, we could have avoided much of this aggravation...

But there is another part of his issue that is just him feeling like I don't belong here, and got hired only because of "family connections". Which is true, sort of...I have no business being here based on simply my academic or professional credentials (everyone else has at least two degrees from Ivy League schools. I...um...do not.) However, to be really technical, I didn't get hired by Papa Bear because I am friends with his daughter. I got a summer internship here for that reason, and then I got hired because the investment staff unanimously recommended it after my internship. Yes, that included the same guy who now hates me...

But anyway, he apologized for making the crack last week to the CEO of another company, and promised that he wouldn't be openly hostile to me anymore. I still don't get the impression that he is going to request my efforts on anything he is working on, but I can live with that. I just don't want to have any ongoing feuds with anyone. So, for now I guess that is pretty much it. I think he is being petty and vindictive, but if he doesn't think I can help, then I can't force him to let me work on stuff that he has to answer for...so...I guess that's about it.

Anyway, The Boy thinks I am hilarious:-P Should we encourage him to read through the archives? Or should I just maybe highlight a couple of good posts for him... Maybe everyone would like to highlight their favorites;-)

The Boy - You will see I write a lot less about sex than I used to. And it is all very flattering towards you:-)

e.b. - Me, too. I was actually kind of nervous on Friday, and I felt MUCH better when it was over.

k.d. - That is my goal...Sitcom Porn.

I am so glad to hear that lunch went well...or at least as well as you can expect with someone who is determined to be a bit snarky.

Oh and welcome "boy."

Methinks there is some sort of sexual tension from the boss-- there aren't any other valid reasons for him being such a schmuck.

And three cheers for working in an environment of Ivy Leaguers without a matching certificate-- I do too and though sometimes I want to keel over and die for all the "well at Harvard this and Yale that..." most of the time I can nod to myself and think-- despite class stratification, there ARE places where sweater vests meet the flipflops...

Accidentally Me said...

Ally - Thanks:-) And I am sure he says Thanks, too:-)

Liesel - In order for there to be sexual tension, he would have to actually speak to me. The complete avoidance sort of rules that out...lol.

I am so glad that you were able to have a talk with the Work Guy. The fucker just sounds resentful.
