Look out the window there.
See that squashed looking gooey thing laying on the ground outside?
That's my morale.
We got the official word today about the cuts. My job is one of them they are cutting. Well, my "position" I should say. I get to keep my job.
Just not doing rec in the Hive.
Maybe I should have been more of a kiss a**. I'd probably still have my spot.
But that's just not my style.
KP and I are both getting cut from the house. KP, if you are just learning this for the first time, I'm sorry. I didn't really want to be the one to tell you. They are going to cut two from day shift and two from evenings. Evening shift is going to be run with only two officers in the house. Day shift is supposed to be taking over doing recreation.
Yeah. Let me know how that works out for you. They are hard pressed to get their own work done with six officers. On a good day.
Let's see..... where do most of the uses of force happen? Where do most of the staff injuries occur?
Yeah, let's cut staff from there.
I'll be gone. KP will be gone. Sgt LB says he's bidding on another job somewhere else. He said it rather eloquently: "They are setting someone up to get hurt and I don't want to be held responsible for it when it happens."
I am wavering back and forth between extremely angry at their stupidity and extremely depressed about losing my spot in the Hive.
Anyway, it should be a done deal in the next three weeks or so. I'll be somewhere else.
