But, I came into knowledge of the situation, and what I suspected would happen did happen, and I am angry. Violence-prone angry. Haven't broken anything yet. Trying hard not to.
Tomorrow, I will have to have a talk with BM, and then BMc, and probably then with BMc, JH and SS. I think there's a high risk of it not ending well for at least one side. But, perhaps it won't be necessary at all.
Meantime, it's long over due to start the external job search. It was, at this point, supposed to be a formality, but perhaps it's best if I find somewhere where the office politics are a little more... open.
