She thinks she’s bringing me up to speed on recent developments, making me feel like I’m “in the loop” and preparing me for upcoming changes. But of course, office gossip is rampant, and someone has already shared the most salient points with me. I am oddly unmoved – neither excited for her nor afraid for my future – by the news that in a few weeks she will be completely segregated within the other company and I’ll have a new boss. Maybe it is because I just want to be done with all of it, to walk away and never look back.
