    So, the group I've been rehearsing with for an upcoming performance has been next-to-impossible to deal with for months. The director, who is an old teacher of mine, has been presenting this project as a work-in-progress in various iterations for several years now. I've been involved in most versions at times, and have done assistant work (for free, obvs.) even when I wasn't available to actually act. In recent months, I was brought in, originally as an extra cast member and later on as a replacement for someone else. The response was mixed from the get-go. The rest of the group seem divided as to whether I'm there to replace them as well, and various insecurities have surfaced, even though I explained from the start that I was just doing what I was told. In any case, recent developments have been especially stressful. I never get notified for anything, there are constant shake-ups, changes and replacements happening on a daily basis, I've actually been recast several times, I was originally told that I would have additional rehearsal time to perfect certain routines but it has not been the case, I turn up for rehearsals only to discover that I'll be working on different material with different people, etc. The show has been rescheduled on several occasions, and at this point, I'm just turning up without knowing when and if we'll actually go on the stage. Just yesterday, I received a group message on FB, where I was told that the venue we were supposed to appear in cancelled on us, and apparently we now have different dates and times to work in a new theatre, which the rest of the group already knew. I responded saying "I wish that I'd known about the change earlier, I'll do my best to make it work".

    I woke up this morning to sixteen text messages from the director, which amounted to a tirade of abuse about my paranoid behaviour. It's been a lot of fun.

    ^How did this turn out?


    Today we were on Alert as a kid had stolen his Daddy's gun, posted "I'm the next school shooter" and disappeared. The district was sure to tell us that part.

    They weren't so keen on letting us know he had been apprehended some time later. It was a stressful day.

    I'll be writing my letter of resignation in the next few days.
    And the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
    And we'll live a long life

    ^eff that nonsense.

    So I'm sitting behind my desk feeling like I've been run over by a truck. I called in for a sub about 3AM. When it still hadn't been filled by 7AM, I just came in. If I hadn't, kids would have been supervised by who knows who. We've gotten several emails in the past few weeks about not taking off days. I'm pissed that the district can't find enough subs to function and feels the need to guilt me for taking a sick day that is guaranteed by my contract.

    Timeline:

    10am 4/9 - turn in resignation letter
    Noon 4/9 - Principal turns in letter to District
    3pm 4/9 - I'm contacted by District for exit interview. They kept asking about my feelings about things. They heard all about my feelings.
    4/11 - Receive letter saying resignation has been accepted postmarked 4/9.

    I marvel at their efficiency in this matter when they generally can't manage to be efficient at anything else.

    After I got yelled at at work in a way that the entire office heard, by my boss, she and I had a follow-up conversation, during which she told me 1) she didn’t yell, 2) even if she had yelled it was okay because I’m never going to go anywhere where I won’t be yelled at and 3) that she’d ruin my career if I left.

    So, I’m out!
