And I’m not afraid to use it…

Well, that’s the form off now for my leave of absence. Depending on how convoluted the bureaucracy turns out to be it could be anything up to two months before I hear how my application goes. After all, it took six months to sort out going part time, who knows how long this is going to take…

So that means come April the 22nd (my work has a bizarre four week calendar) I’ll be a free man. Of course, they may still turn around and say, “No!”, but I have a perfect, reasoned argument should that come to pass: “I quit.” All in all I’d rather have the free health and life insurance, but needs must when the devil turns up asking to borrow a cup of sugar and ends up sneaking off with all your teaspoons.
