From my former employer

Got this today from them about a project I’m supposed to get started working on:

 “Really pushing hard to get a go-ahead on this and letting them know they’re timeline will be effected. ”

Good to know they don’t need editors there anymore.



  1. Your former employer is in more trouble than it seems. Not only is the editing terrible, they don’t seem to know how to use ‘spell check.’ The worst part is that your former employer doesn’t seem to know you’re GONE!

  2. Well, the thing is, Phyllis, I’m supposed to be called back for a “phase 2” project. It’s an extension of the project I was working on when they changed me to hourly and told me to “quietly leave”. The client hasn’t signed the purchase order yet, and until I get the go-ahead, I can’t do the work. I sure could use the money right now.

  3. Yeah, and don’t forget to tell Phyllis that they did this RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!!!

    I hope you write them back and say, “Yeah, well good luck with that.”

  4. I will definitely be saying that as soon as this other job comes through, but in case it doesn’t, I need the money this second project with the former client would give me.

  5. I had a similar horror regarding my employer. He was seriously considering the elimination of all copy editing and proof reading, which he’d decided was a frivolous expenditure. But then a dog barked somewhere and a butterfly flew past his window, and he was distracted. He hasn’t mentioned it since.
