My boss called him, and got this sob story about how he didn't feel like he was part of a team, and that he'd 'tried to talk to us' some time ago and we didn't listen, so he quit his job without having another one, and this guy has a wife and two kids!! PK, my boss, was considering bringing him back on the team, but CB and I told him that a) probably a bad idea, and b) if we did do this, he'd have to come back and work under me, otherwise it would undermine my authority.
So, yesterday I got a page from him saying, "Heather, could I have my old position back if we could talk about what you expected from me?" I knew my answer was 'no', but it took me two hours of agonizing over the right words to say it. One of my flaws.
There's plenty more to write about, including secret admirers/stalkers, and general life stuff.
