After yesterday's post, it's only fitting that Other Associate came into my office today to give me a huge pep-talk, the gist of which was, "please don't quit."
He told me I'm doing a great job and that, in the short time I've been working here, I've already picked up a lot and he can tell that I make a concerted effort to improve everything he points out that I need to work on. He reassured me that he really likes me and that our dick boss also likes me. Finally, and not unexpectedly, he told me that he's sick of people leaving after two months because it's hard on our dick boss, and particularly hard on him because he has to pick up the slack. So, he would really appreciate it if I stick around.
Anyway, just thought I'd share the fact that there's at least one person in my firm who doesn't think I'm a complete fuck-up. It was nice to hear.
Oh, if you're wondering why I've actually had time to post so much over the past couple of days, it's because my elbow is hurt and I haven't been able to work out. Not working out clears up quite a bit of time for me, but I'm starting to get a little cranky for lack of exercise.
