Rehired me five times. Can't escape.


I met Bob 13 years ago. My first career-level supervisor. He's retired Air Force and not known for his sunny personality. I worked for him nearly 3 months before he acknowledged my existence. He's hard to get to know, but once you do, he'll have your back- forever. He's supported me leaving to make more money; leaving to start my own business; and leaving to be a stay-at-home mom. Over the last decade he's become a father figure. Now Bob is retiring. I have a feeling that if I leave again, I won't be coming back.
