A few weeks after the “efficiency is causing problem” incident, the lead decided to talk to me about it. The apparent oh-you-misunderstood-me and the I-did-not-say-those-words set the tone for the short meaningless conversation.
I know what I heard. And she denied saying it. In the end, she did not apologize because she told me it was a misunderstanding. Whatever… I am looking for a job and I will be leaving as soon as I get one. I was not going to but because of this conversation, I am editing my resume.
