That sucks. I hate managers who get up on their high horse and ride sally ride until quitting feels like the only thing you can do to better the situation. They think a title and some authority is enough to warrant being a complete dick to everyone and picking out favorites. I think I've had some range of this experience at every place I've worked at except for my present gig, which is sweet. Hope you can find a better job and if not, I hope this lady changes or goes away.

Yeah, Jeb, dude, that sucks. Definitely get out of that situation as soon as possible. Until then, I hope things get a little more tolerable for you.

a couple years ago I accidentally got a whole lot of Krazy Glue in my hair at work and my supervisor was all, "Well I guess we need to update the emergency plan for this kind of accident, huh"

If I report something to my project manager and he doesn't report it to the client in a timely matter is it my fault? Should I report problems directly to the client above my PM's head, or in addition to telling him? With a different PM for a different project whenever we had problems she said to tell her first and she would talk to the client. She always wanted to be the one communicating things of importance to them because the whole project was her responsibility. I am not really sure where I stand with this. I'm pretty sure it's just as much my fault.

If the PM is the usual link between your firm and the client, this is on the PM.

I just applied to do some Cambridge ESOL exam marking. It would be fairly easy (mostly online, written papers for exams I'm familiar with) and would provide some useful extra income. Don't know why I didn't do it years ago, really.

Also work-related, it looks odds on that I'll get to go to Moscow again some time this year, or perhaps early next. Which is excellent - I have a long list of things I want to do there that I didn't get around to last time.

Goddamnit I hate job hunting. Every position is nothing except pointless busywork, every role description is contentless, all the mission statements discordant noise, and I can't work up the enthusiasm to become invested in what amounts to managing expectations. Sometimes I wish the world would descend into flames and I could retire to some hermitage or the abyss. The longer this goes on, the less I care of which it is.

For fuck's sake, looking at job descriptions you would think that nobody anywhere does any productive work of any kind. Why must these things be set up so that any progress happens by accident?

You sound just like my friend who is also currently searching for jobs. He has an account just for yelling at the listings with the worst descriptions or are total scams.

The thought has crossed my mind, though I'm looking more for a way to put some cash in my bank account and occupy myself usefully for 6 months to a year than map out a life course. Though you never know.

Well, one of the useless busywork jobs I applied for is interviewing me Monday. As was to be expected, after getting a string of rejections for various uninspiring positions, it's the most attractive position which came back to me - it'll even allow me to keep up my academic pretensions.

The bloke is having similar problems finding a job here. Things that he's qualified for don't have the same payscale as in the US, and things of equivalent pay are all at management level, where he doesn't really want to be "I'm a scientist, damn it!" (I know, firstworldproblems.)
