At a certain point my time in the penalty box became a running joke. My whole team was banished to another area when leadership changed. I was supposed to be put on a veteran team in the new area. I was sent back to do a second rotation in the problem resolution area and I completed that.
My heart belonged to my old boss who was glad to have me. I got away from the person who knifed my boss in the back. I made it clear that I am not working with her. They could assign me but moving mountains will not happen with s boss I loathe. The mentorship is crucial in getting new officers up to speed. This interloper wanted to take credit for my numbers and I wasn't going along.
When I returned from the special assignment it was like retuning home. Funny as the workload increases guess who is arriving. When the world goes to hell just send in the rat killer. I can still get the job done and do it indefinitely.
