I ran into my boss’s boss on the way into the office this morning. He asked me if I’d heard any more about that job within the department.
I told him that – well, yes – I’d met with the big boss last week, and erm… There is no job. At that point he turned left and I turned right and the conversation ended.
Apparently he called the big boss and repeated what I said. So, I just got called into his office. There was a touch of the ‘you just made me look like an idiot’.
‘It’s not that there is no job’, he said.
I’m no less confused than I was before. It’s completely not true that it doesn’t exist. It’s just that it doesn’t exist right now. In this space-time continuum. And they’ll need to re-evaluate it. And it won’t mean working for the person it was going to be working for. Or be called what it was going to be called.
It still exists. Maybe. In the future. Or another reality. Or something.
