Second chances.

The Site Manager made the offer today and, in an encouraging sign, he spoke about money very early on. He has apparently put in a request for additional funding to give me a raise in exchange for me doing training again.

Is all forgiven? All indications say yes. Of course, I have no way of knowing how far Team Lead D's tendrils reached up the chain of command. It was certainly enough to keep management from even harboring the possibility of my being in any was associated with training for a year and a half. Now that he's been gone for less than two weeks, there's no way of knowing yet whether things have truly turned the corner. So far there is only a lot of noise and encouragement.

The Site Manager wants me to write up something of a proposal; the way that I see training at the Help Desk. That will be pretty easy. I'll just write up the way I did it the first time. Hopefully, it won't be an exercise in futility as, before I start doing any actual extra work, I will have to see the money.
