I went back to work two weeks ago. Day one was great, because Grimace (my boss) was on vacation.
Not long after my arrival that day my boss's boss asked me to come down to his office. I complied. We discussed what happened before I left and he looked at me shocked. Long story short, he told me that Grimace admitted to him that the things he said/did were out of line and not his finest moment. I told boss's boss that I hope he really means what he said. I explained that I do not have a good feeling about him, but that I am cautiously optimistic. I just want to move forward.
So then I had a review by Grimace. I was prepared for war. However, he did the unthinkable. He read directly from the paper and said I did a good job. No insane comments. Nothing. I was baffled. I know he nearly choked not being able to say anything crazy.
So I began to think maybe, just maybe he meant what he said. Maybe he really was sorry.
And then Friday happened. I went in his office to discuss two vacation days I have scheduled. He then took this opportunity to tell me that he was glad that I was gone. I sat there with a face that could only have been translated as... WTF? Here we go. He then told me I was on a downward spiral and he is glad that I got the help I needed. Speechless. This man is insane.
When I told my husband what happened, he asked if I was calling because I needed to be bailed out of jail. You won't see me on an episode of "Snapped", but I do sit at my desk thinking very not nice things.
Example: Tuesday we had tornado warnings. I couldn't help but wish a downward spiral might drop a house on his fat ass!Image link
