I think I’m being ghosted...by a prospective employer.

I interviewed for this job over a month ago and then they made me wait three weeks because the boss went on holiday without moving the hiring process along. Earlier this month, I went in for a second interview and was told it was down to me and one other candidate. They said they had to make a decision by the 15th and I would hear from them by Tuesday or Wednesday this week. I’ve heard nothing and it’s Thursday.

By this point, after interviewing twice and being one of two final candidates, I think I deserve at least an email to let me know they went with the other guy.

What’s the etiquette in situations like this? Should I get in touch to find out what’s going on? I think I already have my answer, but I’m frankly a little peeved they made me wait this long to not even bother to email...
