Oh, when they put me “on leave”, I actually lost it, in Portuguese, swearing included. Even the security guard downstairs heard everything. The place was echoey and I was very annoyed.
How it all came about was silly: I called out my colleague for taking government press releases, sticking his byline on it without changing a comma, and publishing them. Dude was staff, I was a nobody, our standards were a little different. The whole convo degenerated fast.
But hey, no regrets.
