Banner Day

  1. I passed out at work
  2. My boss told me he knows I am looking for new jobs in my home state and he's not happy.
So the passing out thing. Really not that big of a deal. My friend JMB took the bandage off from where the Implanon was implanted and I was fine. There are 2 tiny scabs...tiny.
Not a big deal at all.
About a minute later I was down. I went straight forward into my desk, head landing on my notebook.
Its not a big deal because I do this all the time. I have long had a fainting problem that doctors can't diagnose. There is no rhyme or reason to it. I have passed out in class during college, on dates, at home watching TV and now at work.
Fast forward to this afternoon. My boss tells me to come in.
Tells me he has learned that I am looking for a job in IA. That he isn't happy that I didn't tell him. Thought we had a better relationship then that.
I didn't tell him because I knew that would be the reaction I would receive. I didn't want to be treated differently. If he didn't know this far into my search because it wasn't affecting my performance then it shouldn't matter.
I said nothing. I didn't know what to say. When pressed I said, yes, I am looking but have made no final decisions yet.
At this point I am not sure what to say, do.


  1. Eeek! That's hard. I wouldn't be sure how to move forward either. I guess all you can do is take it one day at a time.

  2. Step one should be making sure you're happy.

    Step two, obviously of lesser importance, would be not moving away and making me, JB, and a whole bunch of other people sad. Just sayin'.

  3. Hey I pass out too, randomly, well not randomly, usually during times when I am really sick or really stressed out. Its totally inconvenient, but kinda funny to me.

    Good luck with the job search, don't worry about your boss, do what's best for you always.
