I really am not a crook

Spent the entire day at the Big F---ing Client's office. Just before lunch, Jerry called all the employees into the conference room. I tagged along for some reason. Jerry announced that effective immediately, Roger was no longer working for the company. Some people were surprised, some people were nonplussed, some were smug. This effectively leaves them without an SVP, but it's not as if that matters -- Roger has been effectively AWOL for nearly as long as I've been here.

After the meeting, Donna said that she heard that Roger had been embezzling from the company for the better part of a year. Suddenly lots of things make sense: the refusal to ok new expenditures (and the rigamarole around extending my contract), the next-to-nonexistant bonuses, the general squirreliness in the offices...

This looks to be an interesting few months.

To start with

Will I become the hero of my own life?

I'm going to be going through a lot of changes in the next couple of months. I'm bringing about some changes by myself. I'm being forced to go through other changes.

Let's watch the changes together.
