It’s sucker punches, nasty surprises, awkward situations, and tears pretty much all the time for me right now.
There was last weekend, which was, you know, brutal.
And yesterday. My boss called me into my office at 4:45 (never good on a Friday). While I’m not terminated yet it’s very, very likely that I will be within the next week or so.
My reactions to this are many and varied, including an overwhelming feeling of failure, gratefulness for the honesty, sadness that it has come to this, and flat out panic regarding finances.
