So I check the mail yesterday...
In it is a rather thick letter from the Union office, never a good sign.
I have a contract ratification meeting this morning at 11AM, totally blows my day.
What is annoying about this?
I am on the figgin' Eboard (that's executive board), the President and Secretary, even the Business Agent should have warned me this was coming, I could have been prepared, instead I find out one day before, WTF.
That's ok, I have a surprise for them soon.
This Hamilton local is the worst run local in Canada, maybe North America, it's like a time machine back to 1978.
This is getting old, I feel like I have "stayed at the dance too long".
This is one of those times where I can feel the foundation being laid for a big change in my life and direction etc.
I can feel it, kind of like when you can feel a big storm coming, but it's just over the horizon, so you can't see it, but you know it's there and coming fast.
The big question, do you hunker down, stay put, or let it blow you to someplace/something else?
That's my dilemma at the moment, I know it will sort itself out.
I am not a wait around and hope something goes away kind of person.
I tend to take the bull by the horns and deal with it head on.
But sometimes the best defence against a strong wind is to bend with it, to stand and fight will just break you.
