I Have A Meeting On Monday

Happy Friday! It's been kinda quiet around this blog recently (aka lack of posting), thing have just been super busy and a tiny bit stressful; plus I've spent so little time at home, I haven't had time for much. 

I've mentioned that my co-worker- she and I work as a team, doing different aspects of the same job- is leaving for a new opportunity. I am extremely happy for her but sad to see her go. 
 
When she told people that they were leaving, the first reply back was "when are they rehiring to fill the position?" The second question was "who will be the contact in the meantime?" Both are fair questions. I will be the contact. As for the rehiring, I don't know.

I keep getting asked about rehiring. I kept saying "I have a meeting on Monday and will find out more at that time." This is not a line that I am using to avoid things. I have been asking questions- I sent a 5 page email to my supervisor and boss earlier this week and was told we'd discuss everything on Monday. 

You can ask me the same questions repeatedly, rephrasing the questions, telling me what you think the answer to the question should be, telling me what you think I should do to resolve the situation and telling me what you think I need to say to senior management until you are blue in the face. None of the above will change the fact that I have a meeting on Monday. I will find out more at that time. 

You can tell me that other people are emailing you looking for answers because they do not want to bother me. That also does not change the fact that I do not have any additional information. I still have a meeting on Monday where I am hoping to find out more information.

There is nothing you can say or do that will change the situation. I will still not have answers. I will still not know. 

I will still have a meeting on Monday. I will have more information at that time.
