Should Quit That Line Of Questioning

, , , , | Working | June 5, 2017

Assistant Manager: “You need to quit.”

Me: “What?”

Assistant Manager: “You need to quit, like now.”

Me: “Why?”

Assistant Manager: “Because I was just speaking to [Boss], and he said the only way I’ll get a promotion is if you leave… so leave already!”

Me: “Well, you are my assistant manager. If you want to stay in this department, the only way to can get any higher is if you replace me.”

Assistant Manager: “So when are you leaving?”

(I’m about to answer when an email from Boss comes through on my computer. I can only see the notification and the first sentence, but the tone of the email isn’t too pleasant towards Assistant Manager.)

Me: “Umm, I’ll get back to you on that.”

(Whatever was said in that meeting he had with Boss, it certainly left an impression — and not the good kind.)
