Just had a phone conference. And a promotion.

It seems I am now in a new department and a manager within it.

Ha! Ha! Old boss. You were convinced I'd come crawling back.

Well suck it up, baby!

Re: Just had a phone conference. And a promotion.

I have had similar experiences, usually with toxic workplaces. Essentially, when you give your notice, they say that you are unacceptable anywhere else and you will come crawling back. This happened at one accounting firm, and my senior was your typical toxic boss. If the work was good, he took credit, if something wasn't, he would curse you out in front of the entire office. I could not take it and left. He laughed as I left and said I'd be back. Ten years later and I am a partner in my firm. Guess whose resume hit my desk? The look on his face when he was ushered into my office was priceless. Incredibly, he was absolutely convinced that I was going to hire him. Nah! Let him know in under 30 seconds that I was going to pass. Just wanted to see his face.

Congrats!

Call a department meeting, and then don't show up, you're management.



Sigh, my wife gives me the speaking treatment.
