I am associating, professionally, with liars, con men and cheats. In my defence, I only had vague suspicions before my appraisal, but I wish now that I had mentioned it. It is, after all, a probity issue.
I can't stand by any longer and do nothing about the lies they are telling about 'the contract' they have out on me. I feel a bit stupid in being taken in so easily in the first place by their con trick. And I've spent the money. I don't have much to show for it. I blew it all on an orgy of points ... less ... ness.
And now they say I'll have to work overtime to pay off what I owe.
I am so ashamed. But I feel better for getting it off my chest. I don't want to co-operate with them ever again. In fact, I've decided I won't. I feel a prolonged huff coming on.
