As I had feared, I got a call from bossdude today, letting me know I was being laid-off. I am not surprised, but I am disappointed. Especially since I do not think this is what bosslady wants.
I am upset that he handled it. I'm HER assistant and she should get to say when things end. But, alas, I fear that my feeling that he was just humoring her and that he wants to force her onto the mommy track are true. Woe betide any child that comes into this world under those circumstances.
And so... I march resolutely back to Square One... to start over again.
