I walked to my desk and flung my diary. It thudded loudly and jolted my teammates out of their seats.
“What happened?” Arun asked.
“He just doesn’t get it, does he?” I said.
“Did you speak about your idea with the boss?” he asked.
“Yes,” I said, working hard to stay calm. “And he said it’s not a priority right now. I mean, what part of ‘improved user experience’ doesn’t he understand!”
“That sucks. It was a good suggestion,” Arun chuckled. I would hate his chuckling as much as I hated my boss.
“I should change my job,” I mumbled. “The new boss will appreciate me.”
“He won’t,” Arun said.
That hurt. I didn’t speak to Arun for a couple of hours. But it was the truth. I needed to hear it, even if I didn’t want to.
