That one ended in tears
August 1 – Back to work, again.
I wish it had been an easier first morning. The business got through the week without me – as I expected. Sure, there’s the usual pile of stuff to do – much of it because systems require me to sign some things off. I can do all that.
No the problem was quite different. AM was in my office in tears. The problem of giving away your finance director at her wedding is she comes back when the marriage hits problems – and it transpires her husband is having an affair – and was before they married.
I think that marriage is over – and that he’s a fool, but there seem to be any number of them in the world.
In the meantime I have the fall out of this to deal with: a profoundly unhappy AM who is going to need some emotional support for some time to come.
Whoever said being a director was easy?
