A short time after I had sat at my desk, I heard a familiar sound, signaling that I had received a new message. It was from my supervisor. We needed to have an impromptu meeting. Assuming it would be nothing but a quick pop in, I immediately headed to that familiar office, took a seat and we got right to it. Thirty minutes later, I was in tears.
