it's been in interesting week.
Friday, one of my coworkers announced right as he left, through email, that he was resigning and taking two weeks vacation.

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.

Current Mood: busy busy

It's a tough position to be in, I know what you mean. You have to integrate what you know you need to do from a business point of view from what you feel you need to do as a person. I had a similar thing recently.

Thanks :)

I knew the answer would be no, it was just a matter of saying, you did make your decision, and you told us about it in the most burning-of-bridges manner, that I cannot take you back.

Plus, he was not exactly your stand-out kind of guy, technically, either, which we needed.

Re: Thanks :)

Yeah, but it still isn't any fun to have the conversation is it?

Re: Thanks :)

Well, no, but the fact that it was via 2 way pager made it easier; no face to face needed until friday

Re: Thanks :)

Yeah, but what about the whole secret admirer thing?

Hee. :)

I don't have a whole lot more of the crush boy stories, though!

He's been helping me test drive cars, he's been my rock through the work stuff, but he's still confusing. :)

Other than that, I've been sleeping a lot, and exhausted -- political foo can be draining.

How are *you*, miz biz?
