Wait... What!!!!

So today at 5pm I got an email from one of my bosses asking to come over to the main office to go over the post schedule. We were to meet at 6pm. I left my office and headed over to the main office and got there at 6 on the dot. I walked into his office and we started to talk post schedule. About 5 minutes in he started to talk about the EP and how we are just not meshing well. I knew then that something was up. And sure enough seconds later he said I just think it would be best if we parted ways.

I was being let go, fired. This has only happened one other time in my career. But instead of being sad or upset I was jumping for joy. I would never quit a job, I've only done that once in my career. I just suck it up and push through even though I'm miserable. So being let go is a win win for me. I get out of the hellish job, get away from a very unprofessional and bullying Executive Producer and I get to collect unemployment while I look for another job.

I think my reaction caught him off guard. I think he expect me to be upset and walk out, not smile and be so happy. But it's a relief, I know I did a great job. Everyone I worked with have said that I did a great job with the circumstances that were given to me. The only person who didn't like me was the EP. I didn't burn any bridges with this company. And I don't care if I burned any bridges with the EP as I never plan to work with her again.

After the meeting and he saw that I was in a good mood, he asked if I would talk to the new Post Super, the person replacing me. He seemed like a nice guy and I wish him the best of luck.

They asked if I would come in tomorrow to help settle in the new guy, I said sure. They said they would pay me for the entire week, so that's cool. I don't mind coming in and helping out for the day.. so that's the plan. After tomorrow I'll be unemployed once again. I plan to take the rest of the week off and then start the process of finding another and hopefully more enjoyable job.
