So my boss had “the talk” with me. Because there is nothing for me to do, I am going to be fired.
He was very nice and civilized about it, but I’ll have a job for maybe a month longer and then.. nuffin’.
The interesting bit is that it seems they basically hired me “speculatively”, that is, they had hopes to get deals that would require my skills. In the end, zero of those deals materialized. Or in other words, they knowingly fucked me over.
To say that I am annoyed would be an understatement.
