I popped in a training the project funded. The trainer knew I will. I took a seat in the back of the room, intending to silently observe.
A minute later, the trainer announced my presence: “my boss is here!” Adio to discrete-me. He then asked if I would be willing to join one of the groups, as he was about to start a groups exercise. “Sure!”, i said and joined a group.
We finished the exercise and i laid back, confortably in the chair, intending to switch to “discrete-me” mode again.
– Oxana, would you like to present to the class the outcome of your group’s discussion? i hear.
– …hm, sure, why not?!
– I hope i still have a job tomorrow, said the trainer, to everyone’s big laugh.
