collateral damage

If you have been reading loyally, you know that I recently got a promotion. My department has merged with another, and my job got expanded to cover their area as well as my old one.

I am the first person not in charge of both depts to do blanket both divisions. Last week I made the first move to fulfill this duty, and sent out information to this other area. And got attacked.

Turns out my new job is to be whipping boy. Lucky me.

Everyone in the other half of this dept is angry, distrustful, and paranoid. They fear for their jobs and thier way of life, it is understandable.

So, I was just instructed that yes, they are going to continue reacting to me, and yes, I'm going to have to eat it.

Suddenly the window looks more like an exit than a perk.

The glass on those windows is pretty thick. I don't think they'll be able to toss you through too easily! How awful though. There's nothing worse than paranoid and hostile people. Too bad people are so insecure and instead of rising to a challenge, they have to tear someone else down. Well, you are too good and too strong for that! I'm pulling for you!
