You'd conclude two things from the above report: (a) I could have been an accountant, and (b) I'd be happy. As to the first--no, I'm just a closet statistics geek; I don't really like keeping track of money. And as to the second, I'm perversely disappointed.
I recognize that it is perverse. I'm getting a good salary here, after all, and I'm not being overworked. This means that things here are stable enough that I could move close to work, too. (See previous angst about moving, but at least we're only talking about cross-county rather than cross-country!) At least they might be stable enough. That extra three and a half million would need to arrive sometime in the third quarter or it all goes tits up. But, if there's anything positive to be said about NetPoodles' management, it's that they're clearly unparalleled at wheedling money out of people.
When it comes down to it, I guess it'd be easier if the company definitively collapsed instead of remaining in a perpetual state of living quarter-to-quarter. If I had to leap, there wouldn't be any question of whether it was an unnecessary risk to do so--definitionally, it'd be a necessary risk. But with a debt load higher than my savings, leaping off into the unknown while I still have a regular income--even from a job I don't like--seems less daring than merely foolhardy.
Off to look at internet job boards, again.
