I’ve posted before about a coworker with anxiety that’s so bad I literally had to go alert my boss about her slurring her way through a meeting with a Project Manager. Well... she is now “out until further notice.”
Through the grapevine, yesterday our mutual grandboss* apparently said “she seems like she’s on something”. And late yesterday I intercepted a call from HR for grandboss (ahhh, rollover phones!) and I’m guessing it was about that.
We are so short staffed and I hope colleague is going to be okay and will eventually be back. If anyone needs me, I’ll be at my desk b/c I just got assigned a bunch of her workload.
*I kinda hate this term but if it’s good enough for Ask A Manager, it’s good enough for me.
