Not angry at him, angry for him. I've just been told by William that after big brouhaha that happened at work, he now has to take a step down (with no change in pay, thank god) and fill the roll of someone who was fired. What happened is this: My hubbies direct boss, La Directora, had a niece in a management position at one of the public housing projects which is the business that my hubby is in. My husband fell directly between La Directora and the niece as regards chain of command. Like nearly all examples of nepotism, things started going south as far as the niece is concerned. Not qualified. Bad with people. Started having probs with her own assistant. The assistant complained. My hubby tried to fix what was happening with the niece and the assistant and the niece went direct to auntie cutting William out of the chain of command. Auntie allowed niece to come to her, also cutting William out of the chain of command. Big bag of hot mess ensues. Last week, William found out that the niece was to be fired, today he found out that he is getting a technical demotion to fill her slot. All because someone had to go and hire inept family Ugh!!
