In response to a confession. Aww, sorry to hear, OP. So do you think you will ever talk to him again once he leaves?

Just got off the phone with Boss. He is leaving. He's accepted a position at another agency. We work for the government, so another government agency is really the same as a totally different company. I'm not surprised; there have been a lot of unpopular decisions made lately that's he's had to deal with the fallout from. But I'm so, so sad. I genuinely like him as a person, and he is truly the best manager I've ever worked for. At least I was able to hold back the tears until we hung up.

My coworker was complaining for the last two days about being on her period, but I didn't think anything of it. Today said ran out of pads, but would have to wait until Friday to buy more bc that's when her husband gets paid. I know they're tight on money, but that's the saddest thing I've heard. On my lunch, I went over to Target and bought them bc it was right thing to do. Her eyes light up. How can someone working full-time working for the state government struggle this much? I felt really bad for her.

Conference is over. Nothing Earth shattering, but did get to see Boss. We don't get much time to really interact or talk to each other at these things. We joke that we get to talk to each other more when we're not in the same room together, and it's true. But it's always nice to see him and get a hug.

I have an in-person training with Boss in 2 weeks. Then a 2 day conference with him the week after that. Haven't seen him in person for 3 months.

I don't know what to do. I absolutely LOVE my job. Love what I do, and love the folks that I work with. It's 100% remote, and I'm not micromanaged at all. Very laid-back environment and very secure. But I'm woefully underpaid. The chances of me seeing any kind of meaningful increase are slim, just by the nature of our business. We're OK financially, but my oldest starts college in the fall, so more money would definitely be helpful. I know I probably should find a better paying job, but I don't think I would ever find one that I would like as much. I'm so torn.

In response to a confession. I don't know if my husband suspects anything. And TBH, boss and I have never, ever crossed the line. We've never overtly said anything to each other, but there is definitely a chemistry there. I think it's more obvious on phone calls and in person, but Husband is never around for that. I do have to stop myself from talking about Boss a lot though. Like if my husband asks me about work, I have to consciously remember to talk about work and not just Boss. But TBH, my marriage isn't all that great. My husband's not a horrible person or anything, and we still get along just fine, but we're really just going through the motions. And I don't know that I really want to save it. My youngest only has two more years of school left. When she's done, I'm pretty sure husband and I will separate.

In response to a confession. Ohh OK thanks for the clarification! Does your husband know or suspect your feelings for Boss?

In response to a confession. It's called a conference, but it's really just all the managers and higher-ups getting together for a week-long meeting / presentations / discussion of goals, objectives, etc. It's done at our main location, which is where Boss and I are based. So for us, it's really just going into the office every day for a week. No hotels or going out for drinks, really. The whole team is remote now (have been since COVID), so some folks are spread out in other parts of the country. Those folks will fly in for it. There may be some lunches involved and maybe a dinner or something, but if so, there will be at least a dozen of us there. I don't drink, and we would both be driving home anyway, so the drinking too much scenario doesn't really come into play.
