Well, new developments, I guess. Today I was made dev lead for a project by the same manager (the father of the father-son duo). He gave me explicit instructions and expectations (much different than they normally do things around there).
I remained professional and business-like the entire time (which is what I should have been doing from the start anyway). I laughed at a few things he said and every time I did, he gave me this look as if to say, “why are you laughing?” He was very somber today, and I guess he expected me to be.
I emailed this whole situation to my therapist, who knows all about the stuff I endure at that place. He says that universe has a way of correcting itself and sometimes things happen for a reason (paraphrasing).
So, I don’t know what to make of it. My family members think the son put the father up to reporting me to HR for that email.
I also noticed there’s a new, glowing, 5 star review of my company on Glassdoor and the Pros are that there is a new shift towards employees and their treatment. I think I know who wrote that review, lol.
So much drama. I may get sacked on Friday - that’s pay day, but if I was going to be sacked why did he make me the lead on one of our projects.
So, maybe I’m not going to get sacked? I don’t know. Beats me. I do know, though, that I am looking for other jobs. I actually have an interview tomorrow evening already. So, hopefully that goes well. It’s for a PHP job, and I know little about PHP. I think I can figure it out, though.
