My boss, our VP of Sales, dumped a project in my lap towards the middle of last week. I had no idea at the time that he was dragging me into a political battle that he has been waging with the VP of Technology for the past year, and is using a crisis to make an end run. The tech team has been fighting with me tooth and nail. For extra fun, our President has been shitting things up with her own ideas, and the CEO of our parent company is looking over all of our shoulders. It's been a hell of a week.
