When we last tuned in on my career, usurption was in the air... and... it HAPPENED.

Not sure why, but the new guy has effectively shut me out of communication and decision making.  I attend conference calls, but I am a ghost... I say 'hello' at the start then sit there for an hour.

Between meetings I have one task: forward emails that come to me automatically from a ticket system.  I forward them to the new guy to do the work.  Other than that, I surf.

Yes, it is bugging me.  They are paying me many thousands every week to do nothing.  And it kills me because I like the company, and they really need me to organize their projects.  But they don't know what they don't know... so they give me nothing to do.

I told my grand-boss that they should make me a project organizer guy... and he said he'd let me know next week.  If the answer is 'no' then I'm going to find something else.  I have an interview with a bank on Friday and then a phone interview for a fancy job on June 1st.  The bank seems the most likely choice right now.

I don't like feeling useless.  It is actually depressing.  My old boss and underling were fired, and the new guy is socializing and making friends while simultaneously shutting me out and being cold to me.  Surprising how much stuff like that can affect you, even in middle age.
