i just got outed at work

Not exactly how I wanted to tell my supervisor...  We were having a discussion about another co-worker's maternity leave (she's due in late July) and how we were going to handle August programs.  

Now we're scrambling to figure out how to get everything covered.  I just wish I would have figured out my plan of action before having it become a chaos situation.  I didn't plan on telling him until at least another week or two.  And I don't understand

Ugh.  What a crappy way to start my day.   

 

Re: i just got outed at work

  • Oh, man. That sucks.  So sorry!
  • Boooo, I'm sorry :( That really blows.

    I was just unintentionally outed to my boss, too. But only because she asked and I couldn't lie. I forget what I said, but she replied with a, "You're pregnant, aren't you?!". Oops. Luckily she's not telling anyone else, but still.

    I guess it's good that I won't have to be secretive about doc appointments...

  • Boo!  Hopefully they don't give you a hard time about being gone for your programs.

  • Oh no! That stinks, Kelley.

    You mentioned recently that you were going to have the opportunity to negotiate some aspects of your job - has that already taken place? I hope that opportunity won't be impacted by your being "outted".

  • Sorry Kelley!  I know how disappointed I would feel if a situation like that was suddenly wrenched from my control.  I hope you're able to sit down with your supervisor once you have your plan in mind.

    Nope - it hasn't.  I had to put it on the back burner because of something else that came up and was planning to take my plans to my supervisor next week. 

    I don't think it will mess anything up.  In fact if he agrees to the terms that I've tentatively laid out, then it would actually make it better for August because I wouldn't be required to be on-site.At least that's how I'm going to try to spin it.

    Best of luck! I'm sure you'll do a great job of presenting your proposal!
