No word yet. My bad news could turn around, but I doubt it.
This was an incredibly important part of my life. No wife, no kids, boring-as-Hell job -- this gave it a real purpose (sad as that is).
If it was a deliberate decision, it's completely puzzling. If it was a simple error, that's not comforting, either.
Sit and wait. That's all I can do.
Well, that, and skim the listings for opportunities elsewhere. I have a very valuable skill set and tons of experience. These guys may take a pass on that, but I doubt others will.
Last night I tried calculating the value of my volunteer service, billable rate of X, times hours per month, times four years. It's an absurd value, which these guys have gotten for free, and now say "no thanks". It's mind-boggling. Of the targets for non-reappointment, there were much more likely candidates, particularly as we've spent the last year training me for the top spot. Confounding.
2015 has been a bear of a year so far. 2014 wasn't so hot, either. I'm in a long, long run of baaaaaaaaaaad luck, and I'm tired of it.
