That's very heartening. No pressure or anything there. :)


No, nothing openly negative. Just lots of snarky semi-humorous asides
and open admissions of jealousy.

Mind you, we hired a third project manager the same week I got hired,
and he bogarted me out of MY office. I only got this one because one
of the military personnel got transferred out. So I don't feel TOO
bad. I just think it's odd that no one's giving the project manager
crap, even though I've been here longer. I imagine it's that typical
dismissal of tech writers. :)
