the Quiet Office, I returned to my normal work area to retrieve my jacket.
Each time, my supervisor in that office was still working.
"Bye," I would wave to her, as if nothing was wrong.
"It's 'bye' for you. I am still working. Someone has to do YOUR work when you are not here," she snarked.
I kept going.
It was with her blessing that I was floated out of this office. "I don't need you. I've worked fine all these years without you," was my supervisor's response to the "request" to float me.
I would also like to note that I checked on her several times throughout the day. She was never in her office. Please note that when I am working in this office, she never leaves me unattended.
