When a position opens up and everyone on your team has said it should go to you, you're the only one who applied to it, you have the most experience and knowledge and yet they pass you over and cannot (will not) give you a reason for why - you just have to remember telling your supervisor how a few months back you need to leave work because your non spousal partner had an accident and in the hospital. You have to remember how another very qualified (and open about being a triad member) person had recently interviewed for a position your company just can't seem to fill, and then was never called back.
I am so sorry to hear this
nudge and I have already had the work fall out, everyone knows. We did get a lot of crap and get in some hot water etc....but actually he DID have to come to the hospital with me once and his boss was nice about it (id been in a car accident). Hopefull one day we could all be out without it beign such a huge deal
