I feel like getting this off my chest: In February 2020, I started my new job at a consulting firm, and I was assigned to a client. On the second day of being at the client site, I had a big lunch and had the “itis.” I accidentally dosed off at my desk and the employees of the client site noticed it and apparently they told the higher ups at my consulting firm. As a result, I was rolled off and placed on the bench and eventually I was laid off from my job. To this day, I am still unemployed. 😞😞😞

To my manager: your inability to say “no” to asks does not qualify you to all of my personal time. Your lack of boundaries somehow becomes my problem to constantly push back on. I would like you to know that instead of a leader it makes me (and others) think of you as a yes man / woman. I know you’re vying for promotion, but that isn’t an excuse. No thank you.
