I was sick yesterday with a horrible sinus headache. I have not had a headache that bad in a long time. I could not even hold my head up. I was okay when I left for work, but when I got there it was pounding. I took two sinus tablets and it did not even phase it. I went home about 9:30. When I got home, I went back to bed and slept for 3 hours. I still didn't feel that great. I just laid around and watched TV for the remainder of the day.
This morning, I felt about 85%. When I got to work, my boss called me into his office and closed the door. I have noticed him doing this with others. I figured that he was getting a good promotion or we were buying a bank. No, he told me that he was leaving the bank. I didn't know how to react. I want to break down and cry. I've been working for him for about 14 years. When I see his family, we always hug. I have been on the verge of tears all day. He told me that it would not be announced until Friday. I took it that I was not supposed to say anything. I did tell coworker and she was stunned. I told her not to mention it. She said that it explained some weird things around the office that she had noticed. He is one of the best managers that I've ever had. He is a graduate of Princeton and has an MBA from Wharton. He treats me like I'm smarter that him. Even though he comes from a privileged background and is an Ivy Leaguer, he is very down to earth. He does not think he is better or smarter than anybody. I almost feel like there's been a death.
