It’s “the place are you now?” month at Ask a Supervisor, and all December I’m working updates from individuals who had their letters right here answered previously.
I needed so as to add a postscript: I obtained one other job! After I wrote to you with my replace, I made a decision I used to be *simply* livid sufficient to stop with out one other job supply in my pocket. To the abject horror of my dad and mom, I did simply that. I used to be after all very nervous about going voluntarily unemployed initially of a recession, however I’m so, so happy to report that – thanks in no small half to your job software recommendation – I’ve been supplied one other job! It’s fewer hours, extra money, extra advantages and (to the aid of my previously horrified dad and mom), far more status.
The supply got here by means of on the penultimate day of my discover interval, which was very candy certainly. Throughout that entire discover month my boss noticeably ignored me, which was an enchancment. On my final day he then handed me a card with a poem (!) inside it, and mentioned, I child you not, “Don’t inform your hubby.” I gave what I hope was a bollock-shrivelling snicker and mentioned after all I’d inform my husband; we share every thing. Boss then squeezed my shoulder and mentioned, “I’ll miss you” in an embarrassingly heartfelt voice. Yikes.
I did, after all, present my husband the cardboard. I then took nice pleasure from deleting my former boss from my cellphone, ideas and life.
