So yesterday another lead asks me to fill in for him when he's out on vacation, and I tell him "I'd be glad to but I don't know if I'll be around for that long, you should ask Mark"). Apparently he did because then Mark pulled me into his office and said he didn't like to see me "MOPEY". I was like well what do you expect? You told me to start looking for another job? I'm supposed to be excited about that? And Plus I'm not MOPEY, I'm hung over from all the drinking I do when I get home from this job.

He thought that was funny and then proceeded to report to me the morale numbers (up to 9.6 out of 10 from 3). Guess who is in charge of Morale? ME. IT'S ALL ME. And he tells me he really doesn't want to lose me and how I contribute a lot yadda yadda. What. Ever.  I guess that means more time for me to find another job before I get fired. I think he's worried about his retention SLA and what happens to morale if the only person who does anything for Morale leaves.

They sound bipolar over there.

My boss at Fisher told me I was always negative. After I was tested and came back ASD with a letter from the PhD and I put it in HR and she shut up about it. PLus somewhere in there I made an effort to try to be "happier" at work despite my contempt for the assholes in charge. It was not easy especially with how conditions have been there in the past few years, the work load and the awful pay.

Long story short it is hard to deal with shit and sometimes we get overwhelmed in the process and wile we should make an effort to be "normal" some of us have a hard time getting there because our wring is messed up. No this is all easy for me to say this here and hard to tell morons up the food stream but it is something to think about. Say if there is an EPA you could use to have a counselor write a note saying you are working on your mopey then you are making an effort to fix somethings. However being an orange badge they still can just end the contract at any time and if you where blue/FTE it would be a bit harder.

Good luck. I know how hard it can be. Especially when all you can do is imagine many ways to make Mark cry.
