The WS has to be willing to out for extra effort, above and beyond, for the BS. Especially post Dday. Not wing it, have it fall flat, then send a "whoopsie" email when called out
Yes. I agree Aubrie. And there may be times when they want to go the extra mile and the BS wants nothing of it. The main thing here is to talk about it as I also suggested. Well in advance. And keep in mind that even though you do talk about it, you may not actually feel up to it that day.
And I like Sad in AZ wrote,
Speak up when you want something.
And speak up when it is not working for you. Glad you wrote the letter to him PreggoBS. It would have been nice had he beat you to the punch with an apology letter but you put yourself in a vulnerable position being honest and that takes guts.
