#WhatILove

Really, it is interesting, doing somebodies taxes, writing legal statements and looking over emails.  Another thing that I personally love is electronics, while at a past interview the interviewer asked what was interesting about computers.  My comment was that the knowledge just came naturally to me, somebody could hand me a cellphone that just came into the market and ask me to program it for them which is easily done without a manual.  It's the boredom that gets to me, sitting in front of a telephone waiting for it to ring will eat me away.

My knowledge of computer software is what really helped through this entire ordeal with unemployment.  With a limited income now that I am unemployed, the importance in cutting corners when submitting evidence for the hearing was critical.  If it hadn't been for Linux/Ubuntu implemented features that are offered,  the ability to what I can do today such as, creating a resume, faxing information for free and bringing in a small income would have been limited.  A personal favorite software program offered on Ubuntu is Gimp Image Editor.  The images posted on my blogs are usually edited by me, my favorite format is a transparent *.png file.  They look so nice and decorative next to each blog post.

 On Elizabeth's Blogger Wikis I am going to write a couple tutorials on converting an email to an adobe pdf file using a couple different techniques that have worked for me in the past.  FaxZero's free online faxing service allows you to fax so many times a day for free and supports *.pdf, *.doc and *.html.  The tutorial will be for those who are using Linux/Ubuntu or are interested in learning more about it.

Something thing that has been a goal of mine is to learn is how to send a fax via an personal email account without having to pay.  There are some sites that give you somewhat of an idea and swear it works but I haven't had luck with it yet.

#ifyouknowmeyouknow - Emails sent to the owner of my previous employer

Hopefully the appeal process date does not take to long, the need to review the hearing transcript is killing me.


Here are the emails that were submitted into the New York State Unemployment that I had sent to Dick Hearing evidence file inside the hearing room.  If some seem confusing or crazy to you, click here to read this previous post, it will shed some light on the situation.  There was also a time that Dick and a female manager met with in regards to an email sent where I wanted to know why everybody was acting strange.

Dick told me it was because he had asked the female manager that was in the room to follow me into the ladies room if I ever went out at the same time that Dick went out because he trusted her with that.  The thing is, he would go out into the hallway when it was time for me to go on my break and wait until I walked out so that it would appear as if I were stalking him.

#LifeGoesOn...The loser who moves on is really the winner

The denial came in and such as life time to now move on and look for a job where the employer treats their employees fairly and decently.  I'm thinking about appealing the decision, although it has to really be thought over before my mind is made up.

Even though it did not go my way one thing is for sure, if Dick ever tries to pull the bad production card on an employee who's production may not be low, hopefully the Labor Department will take my case into consideration.  Also, maybe the Labor Department will take a better look for the next FT employee that applies for unemployment who has been discharged for low production problems.  Another thing to take into consideration is that when an employee does come forward with concerns of sexual harassment regarding Dick, because of this blog it will be taken more seriously.

Anybody who looks at my previous post and views those images of the production reports given to me while employed at FT that I posted on here, they can probably tell that employees prior to me have gotten the same thing.  Maybe the Judge next time will also take into account who the real scumbag is sitting at that hearing table.

When Dick brags about how many images that were scanned or indexed at a particular location, it has to be wondered if he tells that location who scanned the most documents, or if Dick even gives that location a list of his best indexers.  Not a list that somebody created in an excel spreadsheet either but an actual list from the database that the indexer and scanner used to submit their work.

As for job wise, my qualification to find a position somewhere that will recognize and appreciate me for the skills and education that I have.  Dick had my resume, viewed it during my interview and it was in my personal file.  He knew the qualifications from past experience were enough to run an office as a receptionist.  The fact that he tried to say my production dropped at the first office, next gave false production reports at the second one and then belittled me with a comment that I had no right to complain should be enough evidence to suspect he runs a corrupt company.

#IhateWaitingFor...the hearing is complete and now the wait!


After reviewing the file again this morning it appeared accusations that had been made were removed.  At least the one about the threat about hacking the network was gone at least.  Not being sure if  page six of the handbook was different this morning compared to last week, but than again, if  it wasn't and a mistake was made, my apologizes and time to move on.  The date from which the handbook was originally issued to me and the date on the one in the file this morning was different and with the accusation of me being disruptive on the seventeenth of November could have triggered a confusion.  If anything arises again making copies will be the smart thing to do, not putting all my trust in what is not in front of me at the moment.

On November seventeenth, I do remember that day very well and know that I was not being disruptive or making off colored jokes to anybody.  Yes other employees were making comments about me and at one time the IT guy, Josh, walked by when I was getting up to go on break and gave me a nasty look.  That is what launched my first email on November twenty-third of last year.  When a person is quietly working, not really saying anything much to anybody the entire day and having other employees walk by giving you dirty looks with comments such as, "What is she doing now", will give anybody an inferiority complex.  What should be taken into account is the fact that something like that will confuse the crap out of a person when they feel that they did nothing wrong in the first place.  Dick, please make a note that you do not have a grown man jump in front of a woman and glare at her without giving a reason as to why.  It will only make her feel intimidated and afraid.  Nobody should feel like that, especially at their job.

If it hadn't been for that email sent on November twenty-third asking the owner, administrator and E.A.P what had been going on over the past few weeks.  Next, following that email later that day was a meeting with Dick and a female manager.  Dick told me that nothing was wrong, that he thought I was being paranoid and nobody was watching me.  That could have caused a problem today and because I did send that email, unknowingly at the time it was sent, that it would later cover my butt.  Dick did not respond to the email or in any of the meetings that followed that email in regards to me being disruptive did help my case.

Last week after looking over the file at the Unemployment appeals board, then upon boarding the bus, I sat down in the back, pulled my hood over my head turned sideways and just started bawling the big fat tears with the long snot that comes out of your nose that won't go away.  On my arrival home, that is when this determination came over me, you know the one when to yourself you say, oh yeah...I'll show him and the typing of my statement to the appeals board began.

The look on surprise on Dick's face when he saw me sitting there in the waiting room of the Labor Department appeal board, it almost appeared as if he really did not expect me to show up.  Dick also brought his lawyer, which of course wasn't surprising after the chaos that arose from this Blog and the statement I faxed over last Thursday night.  They were definitely angry over the posts made on my Blog about a few of the managers being ignorant.  At one point towards the hearing Dick's lawyer started reading one particular email out loud, stressing something I put about saying a baaaaaad word, than she started spelling out they way the word bad was spelled.  It was embarrassing, which was her goal, but life does go on and from now on I will not try to be funny and spell the word baaaaaad wrong in an email.

During the hearing process whenever I mentioned Dick's real name, he sat up a little bit, as if he was possibly waiting for me to call him Dick or Kurt by accident.  To bad it's to late to change the name again, but changing it from Kurt to Dick was enough.  Last night a thought of changing it to Phuck seemed like an appealing idea quickly dismissed it as just being overly childish and would just be confusing.

The Judge also looked as if he was sympathetic towards me and hopefully that is a good sign, I will not get my hopes up either.  The outcome of what the decision is going to be will be determined and the Judge will send notification, by mail, within five business days.  As stated in a previous post on this Blog, hopefully honesty in all that was needed for a successful outcome.

YET...that bitchy side of me wants to post something juicy so...I decided...maybe it will be fun to post those production reports after all, of course with the company name blacked out.  Than the readers can get an idea of what to look for when handed an Excel Spreadsheet that does not seem to be correct.  As for posting the emails, I'll have to think about that because some of them are a bit embarrassing. Although, if anybody really wants to see those emails leave a comment and let me know.

#QuestionsIhateAnswering

Where do you see yourself in five years...THE FUTURE!!!!

The employee handbook is probably better known to me since my "discharge" from FTP better than Dick and the employees who recreated it.  The section about THE FUTURE in that handbook is a hoot.  In my last post instead of the smart comment about a black man running, that was really uncalled for, the question should have been in terms of my ability being able to do more that was above and beyond my job performance at FT.

At the Christmas party all I wanted was my intelligence, education and skills to be recognized, instead my comment about "Internet" was changed into the word "network" and than made to be something it wasn't.  What exactly is that supposed to mean than?  Does it mean my skills are only good for one thing, illegal activity?  Is a FT employee who is doing just data entry all day not allowed to let it be known that they are qualified to do more than just typing all day for a company that is "supposedly" moving forward and growing larger?  People keep telling me that I should try for IT jobs but look what happened when I tried to make my IT skills be know.  The owner of the company falsely accused me of threatening, gave me production reports incorrect and made me look like an incompetent dumb broad.

The emails sent stating that the production reports were wrong and it the mistakes in those reports did not look like mistake to me, they looked more intentional.  This gave Dick good reason to believe I might hack the company network, because of the recreated spreadsheet attached in the email with the correct formulas?  One such formula that was corrected in my spreadsheet was how to get rid of the #DIV/0 error that shows up when you try to divide by zero in excel formulas.  Oh goodness the woman is smarter than Dick's IT guy, this must mean she is a hacker!

So Dick has good reason to believe a person might hack the network because of their emails sent to him stating how the math in the production report should have been entered in an excel spreadsheet, that just sounds more prejudice wouldn't you say?  If you hoover your mouse over the word prejudice it gives the definition, you better be careful though the word prejudice might eat your mouse courser.
