Bossman canceled his luncheon meeting today with that other law firm!!!!
Yesterday at lunch, in my typical, blunt Sagitarrian way, I blurted out, "So are you going to keep us in the dark about your little lunch meeting tomorrow or do I have to start looking for a new job?" He thought my question was hilarious. He said that he was just going to placate himself that he made the right decision in not wanting to move to another firm, to stop worrying, no need to start looking for a new job, etc. I was so relieved. Still though, the fact that he was still going bugged me, even though he said, "...and even if I did move, I need staff" so it sounds as though his plans did include me. But I am a creature of comfort and habit. I like my casual environment, I like the flexibility this job affords me, I don't want to start answering to a chain of command and be forced to wear business clothes/shoes (that I don't even own), be made to leave at 5:00 p.m. or be given a set amount of sick and vacation time.
This morning, I was at the copy machine and I hear him make a call and cancel the lunch date. He told the guy that it would be a waste of time, he'd already made up his mind that he doesn't want to leave. Of course my off-key rendition of "Thank you very much" was a bit obnoxious for 7:30 a.m., but I was absolutely thrilled that he canceled.
