"Marge, if you're going to get mad at me every time I do something stupid, then I guess I'm just going to have to stop doing stupid things!" - Homer Simpson in the Mr. Plow episode
"The team doesn't get automatic capacity because management is mad" -- Greg Smith, agile guy
All's well that ends well. Best of luck to you Guinevere.
So glad to hear it!
Congratulations on both leaving a toxic environment, getting a new job fairly quickly, and then finding out your nemesis was fired! Sweet news all around.
I was in a similar situation. My supervisor was mercurial and I was always singled out for what I would now call abuse. It became a toxic situation and my usually robust health suffered. I left, was unemployed for a few months, and now I work for slightly less but I'm healthy and very happy things happened as they did.
Things happen for a reason.
I also love that quote about sitting by the river!!!
