I’ve always resented managers who take offices while we sit outside. But when they sit outside, it looks even dumber.

need advice.

I have been working in an interim role as a portfolio manager. I was promised that the role would be mine. However, after doing the job for 2 months, I have been advised that we might not get the funding for the role and I might not get the raise and the title but my responsibilities will be the same.

Its a political minefield.

How should I back out elegantly that I need to be compensated fairly and competitively from this mess without burning any bridges

Can you wear a light blue dress shirt every day? I used to wear a white shirt every day but think I'd like to switch it up. I am also quite simple so I don't like choosing outfits.. if I go blue it'll be a commitment. What do yall think. Is it as acceptable to wear a light blue shirt every day as it would be to wear a white shirt every day?

My Ex is going to interview at my agency. It’s a small agency so I will most likely work/interact with her.
I love being at work but this will shift it a bit.

Anything I can/should do?

I work with a staff who needs a lot of handholding and coaching. I’ve worked with many staff by now (probably over 20 at this point) and they’re the highest maintenance. Every time I answer a question it just generates more questions to the point where I’m shocked if they don’t have questions. At this point, they’re over budget and behind schedule on everything compared to the other staff who has a year less of exp and has been getting through his work with less coaching.

Have you ever dealt with a colleague that believes in extremely (in my opinion) outdated or even just false claims and treats them as scientific facts? I work with several older men but one of them practices "provocative therapy" as in you just play the devil's advocate with your patient and side with the negative half of their thinking. In theory I could see this working situationally, but as a whole philosophy regardless of the patient's issue I think it's ridiculous.

My boss the general manager is setting me up at work. She is saying all this stuff about me that is not true at all. But when I come into her shift or come into my shift after hers nothing is done for me. A lot of the prep is not done. And she complains about me not doing the prep. Stuff Is still dirty. One day she left the grill on. Etc. There was another manager there training to run another store and she said I basically do a lot of the work while she doesn't do much. So she stood up for me.
