update: my coworker watches porn in our shared office

Remember the reader whose coworker watched porn in their shared office? You’re going to love this update:

It’s been an incredibly interesting year. I donated a kidney to my brother-in-law back in April, and while my company did not have to keep me due to current FMLA rules, they did! I even got to keep all of my benefits and received a small annual raise during reviews while gone. I thanked my boss, and she said it was a testament to all my hard work at the company. Wow!

Fast forward to last week, my boss offered me a promotion to office supervisor! I took it with a little hesitation, as I would be supervising this coworker. We hit our first rough patch today. He blew up and we immediately had a sit down discussion with my boss to discuss concerns and issues. I do not think this will be an easy road for him. He opened up about a fair amount of resentment towards me today which worries me, but it is at least helpful to understand him better. My boss has been providing good feedback and has been a great support during this shift in roles (I have never really supervised anyone before). It’s an unusual situation, but I think it will work out in the end.

And here’s an update to the update, sent after the one above:

He quit!

Things are looking up!  The replacement is two days on the job and picking up everything quickly and accurately.  Couldn’t be happier!
