The deal fell through. We found out this morning. I have a job until January 31.
I know there's more to the story than that, but so far no details have emerged. I knew something was up when I got to work this morning. My boss and another guy were talking for a long time in the parking lot. Then he was talking to someone else out in the parking lot. The parking lot is the location of choice for private conversations. At first I thought that my boss had found a new job, then I thought that the deal had fell through. It turned out I was right on both scores. Anyway, then my boss asked if G had talked to me yet. I told him no, but that told me all I needed to know.
Then G came in and told me what happened. I'm still kind of in shock. If the past is any indicator, it'll get submerged and then resurface as moping about T, or at least hit me when I've got my guard down.
I need to start listening to my intuition more. I couldn't sleep the last few nights. I blamed it on alcohol one night and caffeine the next night, but it was still sort of odd. I wondered about it since the same thing happened before we originally found out about the reorg two months ago.
My boss ended up getting the job at the startup where I interviewed. He accepted it before we found out about the deal falling though. Small world.
