I have been working on Thursdays for about three months in a job where the other person who works on the other days leaves on maternity leaves tomorrow. I applied for the position for when she was on leave.
I was told today that they wanted to job share the position. I heard a rumour that this was the case and I convinced myself that I would get the majority of the position, especially as I already know next to everything.
I got one day a week.
I feel dreadful,
Your depressed and dispirited friend,
