At this rate he will fire himself though. You just know he'll go apeshit over something--every little thing will probably bug him now.

OTOH, looks like he's digging that smoking crater for his career steadily deeper.
This crater will be say the size of the Chixalue crater (off the central American coast about 130 miles wide)

Or it'll be like Tunguska - he'll dig himself a hole so fast that when it collapses on him, they won't even be able to *find* the hole.

Update.

Just got a call from the attorney for the state.

They've finished drafting the settlement agreement. It's gone to the Director for approval.

Once he signs off on it (expected tomorrow or Thursday), I can go in and sign it and formally settle this whole affair.

Hopefully everything will be to your liking. Will you have someone legal there to look it over first?

Apparently word of the settlement must have reached my former boss this morning. She overheard him in the hall, rather upset, griping to my former supervisor that I was getting my job back. He was clearly not happy about it, he was apparently on the edge of a tantrum at the news.


Only now I have a picture of your ex-sup going all Frank Burns on us.

Today's update in this saga.

I got another call from the attorney.

Apparently this deal needs sign-off from people throughout the state government. She didn't know just how much sign-off was needed, because this is a pretty unusual set of events.

So, the Director has signed off on it.

Then it went to the Senior Counsel for that entire branch of state gov, and he signed off on it.

Now it's gone to the state government's HR branch's legal division for approval, and when *that* comes in, they say it'll be ready for me to sign.

From the sound of it, this has to be approved by a number of lawyers in different offices, on top of the Director. I guess this sort of thing doesn't come up very often.

In any case, I've got a 3-day National Guard drill this weekend, starting on Friday morning, so I'll probably go and sign the agreement early next week.

I have a feeling someone may be fired after everything is said and done...
