The new job is fairly physical, so I know I can look forward to him dragging in every night like he’s going to die. That’s a given, especially in the beginning since he hasn’t done much physically in ages. Now that we have a gardener, he doesn’t even have to do yard work. LOL.
What concerns me more is he will basically be working on his own, going from job to job, being told what to do and how it is to be done. While I think he will be good at what he’s going to be doing, I’m a little uneasy about the resentment that comes to passive aggressives so naturally when being ordered about. One of the reasons he was let go at his last job was because something the boss thought was very important, the BF did not. The BF resented the fact that the boss would come get him to take care of it instead of doing it himself, and this became a strong point of contention between the two of them. The passive aggressive BF should have just assigned the task to one of his underlings, and both would have been happy. Instead it became more of a power struggle, and of course, the boss had all the power.
The BF will sort of be like an independent contractor in the way that he’ll go from job to job and work on his own, but yet he is an employee of the company. I know if I hired a contractor, told him how I wanted something, and he just did what he wanted figuring I didn’t know what I was talking about, I’d fire his butt. I’m hoping that’s not the fate here. It’s especially scary because at the same time it’s a customer service type job, so essentially he’ll have a lot of bosses.
Oh well, no point in borrowing trouble. For now I’ll just relish the thought that Yeah! The passive aggressive has a new job! LOL
