for the first time in my professional adult life i feel completed blind-sided.
after doing nothing but help someone — teaching them, backing them up, going out of my way to make them understand things to make them a better manager and all around better person.
i have been so PROUD of this person. praising her even! for how far she has come.
she even would tell me how great of a boss i was. she thanked me numerous times for teaching her and helping her grow.
… all to be ridiculed and bashed. to my peers and superiors none the less.
awesome. lesson learned.
