i’ve been dealing with some really weird and annoying work drama with, of all people, my former boss, who i no longer work for, who no longer even works in the same department, and who really needs to get over whatever the hell it is about me that irks her because she’s begun to look ridiculous to everyone else around her.
but even though i - and other people - know she’s a little bit out of line, it’s still been bringing me down.
so it’s an especially nice feeling that today, out of the blue, my one-on-one check-in with my current boss included the following 2 agenda items:
- reschedule NYC office hours next week
- upcoming work location schedule
regarding the first bullet point - she wanted to know if i could switch my city day on monday for wednesday next week so that the team could take me out for a goodbye/celebratory lunch. aw.
and the second bullet point - she wanted to let me know that after next wednesday i should feel free to stop commuting into the city at all.
leadership changes at work can be a tricky thing, but i certainly got the good end of this deal.
