I knew when I sat down just now to write this piece that what I wanted to write seemed familiar. Sure enough, I checked yesterday's post, and there was exactly what I wanted to say. Except that now we've had the meeting, we are going to get (almost) the room we wanted, our arguments went through, and our boss got to shout at us about how betrayed he feels that he's been blind-sided by all of this. Leaving us, of course, feeling miserable.
Truth is, the boss is happy about the big grant, and will sell it up up the line to his boss and on up. Not one of us wanted to call his bluff-and-bluster and ask "should we just give the grant back?" But certainly I was thinking it....

Yours, annoyed, even though we got what we needed,
