I did go to the office today. I was not asked to work on the project in question, instead working on my normal office duties. One of the problems with the whole situation is that my normal office duties take up my entire day, so trying to shoehorn in this extra project was not really realistic from the get-go. My boss still has not completed the project on his own, and I highly, highly doubt that he will be able to before he leaves the country Monday evening, but that is no longer my concern and I will not be drawn into it. He did thank me for coming in to the office today, and repeated that the work that I had already done on the project in question had been a big help to him. He continues to tell me that I will no longer be working on the project.
Now we'll just have to see what happens on Monday. Should be interesting.
Thank you for all the comments on the previous posts! Between work and a terrible situation going on at home right now I haven't really been present on line, but I wanted to keep everybody posted.
As of right now, I am still employed and I am not being asked to work on the project, so that's good news. And it's Friday, I am off work until Monday, and that's even better news! Happy Friday, everybody!
