Back again with yet another sensitive topic.
I am not complaining though, merely wondering when I did step into the twilight zone (and how to get out).

Following this:

Well... first things first.
Prior to that event, I had been a consulting gem, 2nd level tech support, for a huuuge company, for 5 months.
A couple of consulting groups are currently striving to be the "one which will survive", since the company is fully outsourcing it's IT,
and bound to fire... an impressive share of their internal human resources.

I was the first, in my company, to enter the closed realm of... let's call it Camelot, it suits the place (one of the huge company's buildings).

So my boss, an old fart, is about to be... outphased, most probably. He isn't current with technology, has been there for 20 years though,
but is also known for outbursts a plenty. Thinks he is the king of Camelot, hopes to stay so, feels his professional death coming.

Needless to say, I've been a target of choice for mobbing-a-lot and have kept my consulting company informed.

Why a target of choice? Fluent in english, french, italian, an easy learner, someone available and cheered by users... have received hundred francs of presents so far.
Someone emotionally available, fragile somehow.


Following this:

This has given material to my boss to pour more pressure on me, as I have had the stupid idea of faxing the notice to my lawyer from work,
and get caught.
While I was on holiday this week, my company has reacted by placing a senior consultant at my desk, in order for him to replace me
and "measure" the situation.
And while the senior consultant has reported mobbing practices to my consulting group, I am now getting a warning,
in order to accomodate the customer, and risking to lose my job at an old fart's whim.

Are you with me? It's time to lick some arses, methinks, me feels, and it stinks.
Anyone has a similar experience to report? Advice? I mean, my consulting group is "virtually backing me up", and getting "virtually ready to strike on charges of mobbing",
but all in all, I am left alone with a formal warning and a boss who is likely to add more and more, and moooore pression on me as things progress,
wether I do the belly dance, learn to juggle, no matter what I decide to do actually.


And you really thought you had had a bad week?

Update: my "huge company" boss, following the resolution of the legal issue, has retired the written warning: I won't receive it.
