Today was one of those days...
Had to tell someone's boss that they needed to be removed from my project because i just couldn't trust him and didn't want to work with him any longer.
I was really, deep down mad at something that happened on my first day on site when I walked in on him and someone else gossiping and bad mouthing me. The person he was talking to was in a position of leadership and could actually effect my employment. You and I both know damn well that she wasn't the only person that he was bad mouthing me to. What a shit way to start a new project!
We had a sit down talk that day, shook hands and moved on....
Only we didn't...
We've had major communication problems and things have gone from bad to worse until today, I had the opportunity to speak with his boss and just flat out told it like it was.
He needs to go.
His boss did try to help the situation by saying "can we just all have a meeting and get an attitude adjustment and work it out or are you at a point that you're done".
I thought about it for a second, and said, no, you know what...at this point, I just want him gone.
Not very "nice" and not very politically correct...but damn, I just HAD to do it...
Worse thing I've ever had to do....Feel sick and feel like crying all at once.
Then, the other part of me says, he tried to set me up to look bad and to get fired. The hell with that...He's got to go!!
It's kinda funny cause the other person thinks I report to her. But I don't. I report directly to the VP in charge of all the division and I've told her everything. Luckily, she said she'd fully support me in my decision.
Can not believe I just did that..........but, I think it was the right thing to do.
