I woke up with a stinking headache this morning. Sure it is day 8 of a sobriety drive but I think there's something more.
For about 3 years now I have been the sole supplier of MBA marketing management courses to my current major torrent. I have also begun to do other things for them but this is a great little gig that worked. They are happy with me and so other students.
My line manager refers to my courses as a black hole; student go in and he never hears any complaints after that. Only compliments.
Trying to organise next year (it is October of course) I contacted them confirming my availabilities for next year. Basically I received no reply.
But an insider friend told me that the very next day they were sending around internal emails making those courses of mine available to staff in the school.
So that's what loyalty and forthrightness brings you when you're dealing with some people. Sure things will work out fine for me because they always do, but dealing with people like this just saps my energy.
