Ok, so get this shit...
So, last month, the most agitating instructor I'd been dealing with got laid off. Well, since then, the VP of my department decided to get rid of her rarely-used office and work at home.
I officially have NO SUPERVISION at work!
No one knows when I come or go. No one's breathing down my neck about what I am or am not doing. Yay!
And today, I find out that I'm losing a classroom. For reference, I work at an Oracle software training facility that has three classrooms. The aforementioned VP decided to get rid of it, and let it be converted into a conference room for the sales people. That means I only have to deal with two classes on a full week instead of three. This reduces costs, workloads, and a bunch of other stuff.
The problem, however, arises because the room we're replacing just had all of its CRT monitors replaced with brand-new LCDs from Dell less than 6 weeks ago. The other two classrooms also have relatively new monitors, so it's not a matter of simply swapping out an old one for a new one. I guess if push comes to shove, the 3 year old monitors could be switched out for these new ones.
Meanwhile, I also found out that our lease is up in 2010, a.k.a. next year. Oddly enough, my contract is up in July or August of that year. Depending on when they move, I may or may not be gone when they relocate. With the current state of the economy, I think it's best I stay here for awhile, anyway.
