Overheard just now.
"The main fibre pipe blew last night."
I got kinda sensitive ears and don't do the loud noise thang, hence my hatred of Thursdays (fire alarm test day) today it's compounded by the fact that not only is it fire alarm test day but they are testing each sensor as well so the fire alarm activates at quasi-random moments.
Boss: This is Jane, please have a seat.
Me: Hi Jane!
Boss: Oh you know Jane?
Me: Uh no, never met her...
Boss: I assume you know why you are here?
Me: Uh ... no.
Boss: Oh right well am I'm afraid you aren't fitting into the team.
Boss: Terminated as of today, 1 weeks full pay.
Me leaves the room.
So yes first a simple joke.
Not you anymore!!
Uh yeah, bit nuts.
For those that have no idea (and I had to read the letter to figure it out) Halliburton is a huge conglomiration of companies but mainly ESG (energy services group) and KBR (Kellog Brown and root.)
I worked for Shared services, that's right an intermediate company that serves both.
Now ESG and KBR are splitting and thus shared services is no longer required (apparently...) so the entire department is being packed up bit by bit, hence the lack of job.
This is where it starts however, a new way and new future begins now.
