one week later i was called into the head of the department's office. i sat down across from her desk and she asked if everything was ok. i said it was. she said that concerns about my performance and attitude had been raised and again asked if there was a problem. i sincerely told her i wasn't aware anything had changed but would be more observant and diligent about matters.
two days later i was again called into her office. this time the close-whisperer was there and the door was closed behind me. my performance and attitude were again challenged. since i had been extra cognizant of my behavior i knew i not only was meeting but exceeding expectations. i became upset, not quite belligerent, but certainly far from cordial. it was not one of my finer moments. i also did myself no favors in that antiseptic office because after my eruption the two women looked at one another, seemingly convinced that there was in fact something awry in the life of troy.
