As soon as I noticed my head supervisor running around the office like a crazed chicken, I knew it may have meant our meeting wasn't going to happen.
So I went up to my head supervisor and asked her if we were going to meet. She said ...no. It turned out she was very busy with paperwork and calling people at the head office that she didn't have time for me. That we would have to speak next week.
Now, you could imagine my feeling. I hadn't slept well last night because I was so darn anxious for our meeting today. Also next week (on Tuesday) is my birthday and I wanted to have this shit cleared up before then so to feel a sense of relief.
But as we pass through life not all that passes by us is sweet and generous.
Because I didn't want to wait till next week, I got a few words in anyways:
ME: "I wanted to let you know that I don't want to wait till the end of Jan. or Feb., that I would rather leave sooner than later. Say end of Oct or Nov."
Head Supervisor: "Oh, really?"
ME: "Yes. Since you want me to go sooner I agree with you and don't mind going at the end of Oct. or Nov."
HS: "Ahh, okay...I will tell our hiring manager then that is what you want."
ME: "Yes, please. And I am really stressed out because I don't know my exact end date right now."
HS: "When we find the new person we are able to let you know. Until we find new teacher we don't know."
ME: "Okay. I would still like to meet with you about this issue, can we meet next week?"
ME: "Because, there are still some things about this process I need to talk about."
HS: "Oh, really? Like what?"
ME: "I thought you wanted me sign some kind of agreement?"
HS: "Ah yes, well we need to wait till we have a new teacher."
ME: "I see, I understand, you want to make sure you have someone to replace me before I sign anything?"
HS: "Yes. So on Monday I will talk to the hiring manager, but I have to go to a meeting Monday so we can't meet. We could meet on your birthday after you are done or on Wednesday."
ME: "Okay, I will let you know Monday what works best."
Ah conversations with the boss, a favorite past time (sarcasm).
Anyways, why the heck she didn't get her butt into gear and contact the hiring manager this week, is unknown. Maybe she was too darn busy. Or perhaps she thought I would stick it out longer.
It is no easy task knowing I have to wait longer till I am sitting in a room again with her and talking more about the details.
I really want to secure with her that I will receive a letter of release. But she said last week she can give this to me.
All that I can conclude right now is that she knows I don't want to stay there very long. That I am willing to work with her on this and be patient. And that we will meet next week.
All in all, they said they would give me 30 days and October is approaching fast. So either they give me the 30 days at the start of the Oct. session or I am thinking if not they would have more into November. AH HELL!!! So ambiguous. I think it will become my duty to inquire more often with these people for sanity sake.
But for serenity sake:
I still have a roof over my head (that is free) and at least one more paycheck. And ramyeon in my belly~
