So I am sitting at work today, minding my own business when the COO of the law firm I work for comes in. We chat like normal, and he turns to leave, but then comes back.
"So is it true what I heard about you?" he asks.
I draw a blank. "Huh?"
"The law school application thing. Is it true?"
Mind you, my employer does not know that I am considering leaving in the summer. Or rather, they aren't supposed to. But somehow the managing partner told the COO and the COO confronted me about it in front of several coworkers.
So much for flying under the radar.
I do not know how the MP found out, how it came up in conversation with the COO, or why it was even important enough to be a topic of conversation. The kicker? I've never had an actual conversation with the MP. I wasn't positive he knew who I was.
I honestly felt like I had been kicked in the stomach. So that was my afternoon!
