Rant Part 2  
After yesterday's angst fest I bring news!  I still have a job and the boss who is a good friend, is still a good friend.  Although I'm now the proud possessor of an informal verbal warning.  Not only did they sweep for the internet they swept the soft wear! I admit I was at fault I do not dispute that but I object tot the tone as it said inappropriate material on both my browsing and the soft wear.

So as of now I will no longer be looking at the internet even of a lunch time, they'll probably block LJ anyhow and I will no longer be writing fics in the 30 min lunch break.  So to any one who has been following my scribblings I'm still writing it just means the chapters will take longer, so I beg for you patience and all feed back is cuddled and read over and over to cheer me up when things are crap!

Now I have calmed down and accepted my part in this I still feel its an invasion of privacy as in the warning it was made to sound like I even think about looking at fic in any form then it will be formal disciplinary action.

To cap it all they have now taken to blocking open the office's kitchen door to encourage us to make drinks and no longer have private conversations, and I now feel I'm being watched if I talk to Barbara my fellow fan girl.  So on one hand I'm grateful I've dodged the bullet but on the other its a hell of a price to pay.

I'm glad it didn't come to losing your job I've been thinking of you though it sucks that you've lost every bit of privacy even on your break.

Shit hun! Your place is scary! They are violating so many rights! I write at work, but I save it to a pen drive, not to the 'puter in work, or even email it..but it seems like they'd see even that! You need to find a new job...this much control is scary! Really!

I think you're right, when I mentioned to my boss about the rights thing her response was and I quote, "The first person who says that to me will get their ass handed to them, what about the chairman's rights for not to be messing around on the internet in work's time." But later on she admitted that now she wont even go on the net in future because she doesn't like the fact they are watching.

So if inspiration does strike at lunch it will be hand written on my own note pad and then typed up at home.

That's a major bummer. But I'm glad to all worked out! I hope you keep writing!
