A friend of mine recently
parted ways with her protege.
The protege asked her opinion on a project.
My friend, taking her role seriously,
put valuable hours into her answer,
hours she didn’t have to waste.
The recommendation was not taken,
no concrete explanation given.
Then the protege asked another question.
More hours were put into that new answer.
Again, no action taken on the recommendation,
The third time, my friend was asked,
she replied that the relationship wasn’t working.
If someone takes the time to give a response,
the least they’re owed is an explanation for the no.
