I started a new job in Colorado three weeks ago. We had a design review last Thursday where my boss said things were going very well. I debugged about a dozen bugs in other people’s code, and got the application running later that day – right on schedule.
When working late yesterday debugging my bosses’ code on the next phase, the big boss came and fired me. She said I wasn’t coming up to speed fast enough. Total BS. I was the most productive person in the group.
Couldn’t possibly have had anything to do with my Omaha speech, which I told her about a few days earlier.
