As soon as Lee and I turned the hall corner, I said, “Are you sure that was a good idea? I don’t know any more about the details behind provisioning new employees than you do. My hands are full with the Rubber Boots project. I won’t have time for it.”
Lee didn’t even look at me. “You’ll have plenty of time for this. I haven’t told you yet, but at his request, I’ve given the Rubber Boots project to Crayton. He’s much better suited to bringing that project in successfully. I don’t know why they didn’t give him the whole thing from the beginning.”
“What? Crayton asked for it? But I was assigned that project by Jason himself. Are you telling me you can change his decision? Why didn’t you at least ask my opinion”?
