Thank you for this one......I know most people thought it was just a cute little story but it provided me with a little peace.
A few days ago, on my birthday, my boss called a meeting (silly stupid me thought it might be a cake) to tell me the company is going to be acquired.
He then proceeded to tell me that I was wrong to assume that my admin position would be cut and admin positions are NOT usually cut. In fact, I
should work extra hard because there's going to be more money for bonuses. And by the way, as a side note, there's a special project going on and we
will need you to start documenting all your work and procedures.
This was done with a slight snicker on his face.
So between crying and mailing resumes, I had the spent the weekend fantasying how I was going to tell this spoiled SOB off. Young guy - no children.
He never held a normal worker bee type job - he's from money and got this position because his father was an investor. He loves to talk about his
fancy sports car, long vacations and wine collection.
In reality though, I know that there's nothing I could say to make him have any empathy because to him I'm not a person.
Then I read your post and realized I don't need to say or do anything- there will be consequences for his behavior. I'm not a very religious person
but I do strongly believe we do have a spiritual side that continues. We all eventually leave the same way. He's not taking his fancy wine
collection with him.
So sorry to ramble but I just wanted to let you know that this little story might just keep me from crying on Monday.
