One thing I didn't mention in my last post was that on Tuesday, after my Monday meeting with Dr. Chaos and before my interview at the new practice, Dr. Chaos' wife came in to talk to me. She cornered me in the lunchroom while I was eating. I saw her throught the window and knew why she was there, but I didn't have time to escape.

She basically reiterated everything her husband had already said. The main difference was that she seemed willing to talk more freely about certain things than he did. I had asked him some direct questions about the "changes" he planned on making within the practice, and about the new administrator he had hired.

A woman had come in a few weeks prior to interview for the administrator position. She impressed me, and everyone else she spoke to, as a total bitch. I asked Dr. Chaos right up front if she was the one he had hired, and let him know that if so, it would pose a problem. I didn't like her and had no desire to work with her. He dismissed my questions by saying, "I am not at liberty to discuss that with you." Well, after speaking with Mrs. Chaos and several other employees, I found out that she was in fact the new administrator. Also a few other things that he had told me weren't adding up.

After the great interview I had with the new practice on Tuesday afternoon, I had pretty much made up my mind that I was leaving and was derading my next meeting with Dr. Chaos. The new place called me Wednesday morning and confirmed the new job. I was ecstatic! When Dr. Chaos confronted me on Wednesday afternoon, I told him that I had made my decision and was taking the new job. He acted flabbergasted and asked me why. I saw no choice but to tell him the truth. I told him he was not honest with me at our last meeting, and explained why I was making this claim. His response: "I didn't say it was her and I didn't sayit wasn't her - so I didn't lie to you."

I had asked him direct questions about matters that were not confidential or top secret. I let him know that I had some issues with theses matters. He deliberately evaded my questions and didn't tell me the truth because he knew I wouldn't like the answers. As far as I am concerned, this constitutes dishonesty.

I told him I thought he was self-serving, manipulative and dishonest. I start my new job on March 5th. Can't wait!!!

I am proud that you had the courage to let the self-serving rascal know how you felt. Too bad Mrs. Chaos couldn't convince him of the error of his ways.

A friend of mine once said that the only way some folks can learn is through the lesson of the pocket book. I do not wish bad things for anybody, after all we reap what we sow. If you want good things to happen to you attract them by doing good things.

You get the idea...

server others, care about those you serve and share the love in your heart.

I wish you well at your new position. Thanks for keeping us posted.

I wish you well in your new job. I think it was good that you were able to let your old boss know up front the things that bothered you. I am with you that definately was dishonesty, though he did not seem to understand that concept himself.
Cheers Margaret
