After months of fighting I have a new boss and I am not the only one. Two more people from the 'old' team have been moved under a different manager. It probably is not coincidence that those two were the bully boss' favourites, while I was the least favourite unable to accomplish anything, apparently.
The dynamics will change now and it will be interesting to watch. I believe the bully boss has been confused since the news came and has been giving me the silent treatment. She has also snapped at her manager - the bully boss and myself now report to the same person. I have no problem with it, but I am sure she has. The bully boss wants exclusive access to the higher ups she desperately tried to keep me out of while I was under her. This was one way to control me and make sure I do not look good in front of them. She badmouthed me.
This is the most relaxed Sunday night in a long time.
