Nice guy

I am not sure how I get myself into these situations, but I find myself in a hybrid work model this month, where I am doing two days a week at my new job and three days a week at my old job.

When I informed my old boss that I would be quitting, he asked me to stay on a little longer to help transition my role to someone new. I had already agreed to a start date with the new boss, but he was happy to oblige a request for me to start two days a week for April.

It only took a few days to regret the decision to stay longer at my old job. My old boss has dragged out the required decisions to get a replacement for my role, and I find myself having to dance around the subject of my departure with colleagues. In his usual style, my old boss has left everything until the last minute. I should have said no to staying on and left at the end of my notice period.

The lesson for me is don't be a nice guy. To accommodate both my old boss and my new boss, I have jammed myself between the jobs. I wouldn't say I like it, but I only have myself to blame. It's a good thing that April is nearly over.
No good deed goes unpunished. Hopefully, your dual workmanship will be over soon so you can fully concentrate on the new gig.

What a great expression "No good deed goes unpunished". Thanks for the support.
