First of all (apparently, I am only ever to be G3)

I have to say that, a week after I sent in my, "Yes, you missed my resignation, etc.," I got another, "If you continue to be AWOL, you will be AWOL" letter (all at an 80-something-¢ postage charge for the Feds by the Feds).

This is evidence why I can't believe in "conspiracy." It's just like Dell or AT&T — they will allow some employee to say whatever (lowest common denominator) and then hedge on your not following through. Ask me for examples : )

And then to receive (they always send that which arrives in email on a Saturday, I might add), a silly thing such as this (which shows you, if true, how desperate the job-market has become — or at least was 5 months ago when we all applied for this other position):

My dad and my oldest non-great aunt have retired from this monster, the latter only a few days ago. He is not having fun; she is, with bicycles and an RV and all that one wishes for. I was originally here to talk about that.
Daughter is smart not to call back (after message just now, a return from my message six hours ago) father who is, by message, she knows, a bit drunk, not so much that one can't drive sans checkpoints, but still.
I guess there is more snow there, 270 or so miles to the east-south-east than here.

too true

i recently applied for a 14 in another area; essentially a lateral. made the bq w/ a score of 100 ( & 10 years experience ). the position went to a non-veteran applicant, friend of the agency's cio i hear.

but as many of us occasionally remark -'well, at least i'm not working at the IRS.'
