New work, old boy

Posted by

Well, I did it! I left the company I worked at for years and years. FYI…still scary!

I started my new job on Monday and it seems, even though I am in a new environment, with new people, the old me is screaming to get out.

As with all new jobs, I have had to sit through the usual induction process. Meetings with HR. Listening to people tell me what THEY do for a job and if they can, how that relates to what I am going to be doing. My problem is, with all the inductions so far, nobody has actually told me what I’m going to be doing!

I wanna get started! I wanna get some work done!

I’m sat here twiddling my thumbs and its driving me crazy.

I’m told the company and department are changing a lot and that’s why I don’t even have a desk yet, but I wanna get some work done, I need somewhere to do it! lol

Maybe it’s my fault and I forget what its like to be a new boy, after all it was a looooong time ago!

Soon enough, I’m just going to sit down next to somebody and nag them until they show me what they do! if only I knew who else was doing the same job!

This is normal, right? I’m not supposed to just walk in and get to work, right? I’m being silly….aren’t I?

Hopefully, it’s temporary.


As always, thanks for reading.


  1. Congratulations on the job move! On the being the ‘new boy’ thing – yeah it’s normal for the employers to faff you around from pillar to post, pretty much do everything with you INSTEAD of sitting you down and getting you started on the job they hired you too do. Why do places do that? Frustrating!

    I’ve only ever had one job where they literally welcomed me, sat me down at my desk and gave me a list of things to do, lol. Talk about being thrown in at the deep end, but I loved it. Hopefully you get to do some work soon! You sound mega bored, lol!

    1. At the moment, I think they would find my enthusiasm annoying more than endearing! lol
      Thanks for the comment!

  2. Stop winging little bro, your new,it takes time, they are building an opinion of you so just relax, go with the Flo and enjoy the no pressure but full pay thing cause I should think soon you will be busy beyond belief.
