When you get far along in your career, it becomes a very small world and sort of Peyton's place of employers. My current boss is in talks to go back to work at my former employer. He would go from being my boss to being my husband's boss.
I think I'm grieving this news. Even though it will be really great for Mike. I'll miss the complete trust, the complete transparency, and the ultimate air cover. I'll miss the ability to just do my job without having to prove myself to anyone.
Last week, I was informed an SVP was telling my SVP that I needed to learn how to pronounce the company's name. I have a hard time with S's and CH. I can't help it. He immediately came to my rescue by stating that I know how to say the name however my hearing disability makes it difficult for me to enunciate certain sounds. He made the guy feel small and for that I am glad. I haven't had to think about my speech impediments for years and I admit it struck me hard. Hard enough for me to cry on the way home from the office last Thursday.
I think I just need a vacation.
