This Just Isn’t Field-Working Anymore

, , , | Working | September 11, 2017

(There’s been a few rounds of restructuring, and the boss is chatting with me to see how I’m adjusting.)

Me: “For the most part, it’s been okay. I’m just a little disappointed. With all my new office duties, I barely get to do any field work anymore.”

Boss: “What’s wrong with that?”

Me: “Well, I love doing field work. I specifically got into this business to do the field work.”

Boss: “Oh.”

Me: “Why? What’s wrong?”

Boss: “Well, I always assumed you hated doing field work. Every step of this restructuring, I’ve been trying to get you back in the office as much as possible.”
