Boss got mad. President was somewhat professional since he knew I held the power.
Boss said I was unprofessional, inflexible, and never wanted this job anyway. But all this was said in a roundabout, indirect way. I just smiled and shook my head since I didn’t want to waste energy on that negativity. I was asked why I didn’t come to them. Never mind that I tried and was told that my efforts to induce change and streamline processes were tantamount to insubordination. I didn’t really answer, and upon seeing I wouldn’t rise to the bait, boss got even angrier.
When I said my last day was not negotiable, boss kicked me out of the room in which we were speaking. I was asked not to attend a weekly meeting I always participate in. Like a friend said: can’t talk crap about me if I’m there!
I did not commit to freelance work. I plan on declining all requests given that I need to completely break away from this place.
Seven more business days.
