GG: Can we reschedule today's team meeting because D2 is out today?
me: Sure. When I scheduled it this morning, I didn't know if D2 even needed to be there because he doesn't have access.
GG: Well, I was thinking from the perspective of team morale.
me: Yeah, no problem. I'm just going with the flow on D2. I don't really know what's going on with him.
GG: Yeah, me either.
...
me: Yesterday, D2 told NG2 that he plans to go Sales.
GG: He's been saying that forever. He never does.


Mystery not solved!

3.5 hours later, GG sends out a meeting invite for next week in order to get NG1 and NG2 up to speed on where we are with implementing this new software. Not included on the invite: D2.

Cast of Characters

Owner/CEO: former D1 basketball player, mostly just wants to glorify Jesus Christ
Charlie Sheen door guy: President/COO until 1/1/18
D2: dude#2, old software guru, my former boss's former boss
D1: dude#1, my former boss, took me to the store to shop for my computer, now contractor
GG: German girl, new software guru, my current boss

NG1: new girl 1, started this week
NG2: new girl 2, starts in three weeks

YG: young guy who was on team for about six months until GG decided he too often needed to be told what to do because of inexperience and pawned him off to another department in the company immediately prior to the arrival of NG1. He was super bummed about that and has since been earnestly and unsolicitedly helping to train NG1 and NG2, trying to get back into GG's good graces and back on our team.

GG can't make it to La Jolla with me at the end of the month as planned. The two of us were chatting and she was debating the value of sending NG1 and NG2 given the cost. And then it occurred to her to worry about an even further possible cost of sending YG. The possible cost of sending D2, however, was not part of her calculation.

So, my company sponsored a Showtime PPV boxing match in Atlantic City over the weekend. (WTF!?) The company logo was in the middle of the ring and whatnot. GG, NG1, and NG2 had previously expressed how they all detested boxing. For example, when this was announced, I was like, "maybe they'll have a pizza party for those of us not going and we can watch the logo on TV." The three of them agreed that they could take their pizza into another room where no boxing was on TV. This morning, one of them asked if anyone had seen anything from the event. I mentioned that I watched some highlights from Showtime's twitter feed, but that you couldn't really see the logo because it was small and and almost always out of frame and lost among a whole bunch of other sponsor logos that were plastered everywhere. About that time, D2 figured out what was being discussed and starts excitedly rambling away about details of the fight with sportscaster level analysis like he's talking to his best buds at happy hour or something. And he just kept going because no one was saying a word back to him. Total silence. I have no idea how it ended because I did what I always do when things get awkward and put my earbuds in.

It's still around. Not really on display, but folded in plain sight on his desk.

Well, I used to sometimes hang out with the girl whose husband got busted To Catch a Predator style and went to prison and she maybe had a thing for me (?) and everyone in the office thought we were sleeping together even though we weren't. And right around that time, at the end of one of the Servant Leadership meetings, Owner/CEO starts going off on God's forgiveness or whatever and uses himself as an example and announces to the five or six people present that he had an affair and was like, "even I can be forgiven! And I had an affair!" And he's basically shouting this personal testimony, "I HAD AN AFFAIR! I HAD AN AFFAIR!"
