Here we go again....this is the last straw!!!!
I won't be drawing this out, but the Mistress along with my boss and the whole visual structure of the company all the way up to the creative director, who originally hired me, along with a number of other positions all across the company have been let go...3700 in total. Just about everyone I know in the company is gone. This is the last time I will work for the company. Especially after finding out after the lay offs, that the CEO of Macy's Inc. Jeff Gennette gave himself and another 5 top brass millions of dollars in bonuses and stock. Appalling and disgusting considering business is down, and no stores are making plan. People just are not shopping for clothing. Not to be outdone, I made sure I got all my vacation time and other personal days, and my severance, which the store manger was not going to give me the full amount, since I had been laid off once before, but returned just by one day over the time frame to start everything from scratch, but my HR manger had it changed since I returned over by one day. Oh.... I got the severance, after kindly mentioning the name of a certain other manger that left under the current store manger, for, oh shall me say "harassing behavior." Monday I was called with my paperwork to come in and sign for my full 15 years of severance!!! I'm not to be trifled with after giving them my hard and creative work all these years.
Yesterday I already got a call to come back in other capacities, which is a slap in my face considering my work skills and talent.... which I gladly declined and I told them I will not be taken for granted, and refuse to work any longer with a company so a CEO can get himself and other top brass million dollar bonus's. I have also already called my financial guy to dump for my stock in that company, and hold it, and then combine the money from my pension plan I also had, to reinvest into other stock that is making money.
But don't worry about me dears....I'm will be fine and will now look forward to my next new chapter whatever that will be. Daddy Warbucks already wants me to move to Europe. But all I know, it will be a cold day in hell that I shop in any store Macy's Inc owns again.
Don't fuck with me Fellows.
