i happy to say that training has been going well. new hire is definitely better than i anticipated & boss is ok.
talked with co-worker, he said boss is being really difficult with everyone else though, stressing out over me leaving. sorry to hear, but i did warn boss "i could adjust my training as necessary". it was actually stated in reference to new hire because 1st meeting did not go well at all. but glad to know boss has realized his behavior could also influence my training methods.
yes, i'm a proud carrier of the "bitch" card & i will use it whenever necessary, otherwise i keep it in my back pocket so it's always within reach.
